    I have BCBSTX and when I rang them today to see if they cover bariatrics I guess my plan doesn't:( absolutely gutted. I have no clue what else to do :(

    so happy for you guys. Wishing you every success

    I'm sorry to hear that your insurance won't cover bariatric surgery. I hope you are able to figure out an alternative.

    Good Luck

  2. I chose the bypass because of the dumping felt like I might need that reminder of I shouldn't be eating that. Haven't had any dumping episodes yet and I'm trying my hardest to avoid any helps that I'm still on pureed foods figure it will get harder as I move to the next stage. My mom had the sleeve she hasn't had any problems so far and it's been a few months.

  3. I honestly had no idea about this 3 week stall until I started reading peoples posts. Can I be among the many to say it is for the birds. I am on week 5 and my scale hasn't moved in a while. I had to put my scale in closet time out until we could be friends again. I'm just going to keep sticking to my diet and try and get in more exercise for a while. Alright I'm done just needed to get that off my chest.

  4. Well surgery day has finally arrived and I have to be at the hospital at 630 am. I however thought it would be a good idea to work until 430 am. #cuttingitclose I'm hungry, thirsty and tired I probably should have taken the day off. #hindsight20/20 That being said I can't wait for 630 to arrive. 😆 Wish me luck! And good luck to everyone else having surgery today!

  5. I had an appointment with the nutritionist yesterday who let me know that the hospital would no longer be prescribing pain medication after surgeries and that I am responsible for getting liquid Tylenol. I don't know how much pain I'll have after my surgery but Tylenol just doesn't seem like it would do much. I'm kind of worried but at the same time I'm just like I'll worry about it when I get there. Anyone else told they would not be prescribed pain medication after their surgery?

    @INEEDABUDDY I’m exercising using Leslie Sansone DVD’s. They’re fun to do. I figure whatever I can do for myself beforehand would benefit me. I’m getting revision from sleeve to RNY July 17th.

    I work out with Leslie Sansone too, she is great and there are so many videos. There are some good ones on youtube as well.

    Hello Everyone my surgery is scheduled for July 27th. I hope everyone's procedure goes well!

    I have BCBSTX and I was approved in four days! It was incredible. Doc had told me to expect to wait for 30 days for the insurance to approve or deny it. I was just bored and looking at their website and looked under the "Claims center" tab and saw it was approved. I emailed my doctor's coordinator and she said she was just about to call me in the afternoon to let me know!

    So keep checking that tab! Good luck!

    I checked the website on Friday and saw that I was approved. I'm so excited!

  8. I am finally to the point where I am just waiting for the approval from my insurance. I have bcbstx and the request was just sent in yesterday so I'm sure I'm in for a little bit of a wait. I am beyond excited. I hope this is a smooth and quick process. If all goes well my surgery date will be July 27th. Wish me luck!

  9. Hello All

    I'm new here but been reading a lot of the advice people have to give and the support and it's great. I Decided to have wls last year but honestly my previous pcp has been recommending it for years I just didn't want to hear it. I just knew I could do it on my own without any surgery. I tried a few times and was successful maybe once but gained all my weight back plus a few pounds over the years. Now I'm over 30 and thinking to myself why did I wait so long to make this decision? I guess I just wasn't ready.

    I'm officially near the end of my pre op requirements and I can say this is a long process that I'm positive will be well worth the wait. That being said I am nervous and excited at the same time. Is that normal? Like I'm sure I can do this but what if I mess up? What if the surgeon messes up? What if I never get to my goal weight? What if I go below my goal weight and I don't know what to do with myself? What if I change as a person will it be for the better or worse? What will people think? Do I care what people think?

    I know I'm a little bit of a mess and I'm trying to get my head in the right space for this life change and I'm working on it. I also know I can't stand the wait but great things will come after.

    Thanks for listening ^_^
