    What should I do?

    I would call! The waiting game is just too much for me lol

    Its super interesting because my insurance company requires a person to be morbidly obese & defines that as a BMI of 40 or 100lbs over ideal weight. My first appointment to see the doctors I was 227, that would make me at the 100lbs over mark, but still makes me nervous! lol But we shall see what happens!!

    my final appointment is one week away! i'm just so nervous, having so many thoughts on what may or may not happen. i don't have any of the main comorbidities however (mine would be major depression, anxiety & migraines) i'm about 100lbs over what the doctor says is my ideal weight. i have UHC Choice Plus, and it seems they are pretty easy to deal with, it's just my nerves...basically the only qualification is to be morbidly obese which they say is a bmi of 40 or the 100lbs over my ideal weight. i need to calm down lol

    Awaiting approval

    I have a diff insurance but I’m there with you 😩. My BMI is like 37.. I feel like I’m going crazy waiting for my psych appointment March 3rd & waiting for my paperwork to be submitted. Then thinking about waiting for an approval makes me even more anxious lol. Good luck with everything!

    That's so bomb! I really wish my insurance would do approvals prior to finishing every appointment. But, I'm super optimistic! Congrats on that approval, you're almost there!!

    Anxious to get approved.

    I was happy when I found out, it helped explain (somewhat) why I was so tired all the time! They put me on 100,00mg a week, I've been taking them about a month now. I was just retested and I'm at 20! Hopefully yours changes quickly, I have a couple more doses of the 100,00mg & then I'll be able to take regular supplements. What are you on?

    How to start?

    Hey! I’m not self pay, but there is a forum on this website for those who are & also discusses options in Mexico. I like to read through it just in case I were to get a denial or something. Hope this helps!

    Liquid diet struggles

    Sooo true! My families first thought when celebrating is grabbing a bite to eat. My sister struggled with this at first, she said not being able to physically eat what she wanted was trippy & probably the hardest part for her. Good luck with the 14 days!

    I tried it in my early 20’s but maybe I should give it another whirl. And yes! Stress is a big factor here. It seems like as of late if I’m not worried about school I’m worried about being approved for surgery. I keep telling myself what’s meant to be will be, but for me that’s easier said than done. Luckily I got a call from the bariatric center letting me know that they’ve made a note of the med change & all aware that mirtazapine causes weight gain. I’m determined to plow through this because I really want this!

    Anxious to get approved.

    Omg I know the feeling. Will you have to go to any psych appointments? This is what I’m waiting for. The surgeon said once I’m done with that appointment my paperwork will be sent to the insurance right away so hopefully it’s the same for you. Then with my insurance (UHC Choice Plus) I’ve been told it’ll take up to 15 days for approval, BUT lots of people on here have received approvals much sooner. Keep us posted!! Good luck!

    Liquid diet struggles

    I can totally do the same thing everyday as long as it tastes like something! I'm really excited to get to the point that you are.

    I think another issue that's probably screwing with me is that alongside working full time, i'm in school full time. However, I finish March 1st....so we will see if that helps some!

    Hi! I've tried melatonin and it does nothing for me. I'm gonna power through this and hope that surgery helps my sleeping issues some!
