Common Channel length for DS?
Real Kombo posted a topic in Duodenal Switch Surgery ForumFor those of you that know, what was the common channel length for your DS procedure? I am looking to get the Duodenal Switch but I would like to find a surgoun who does a shorter CC. I've seen horror stories of people with longer CC regaining significant amounts of weight.
Taking soooo long
Real Kombo replied to khamm's topic in PRE-Operation Weight Loss Surgery Q&AGod damn Covid postponed my surgery for months and I couldn't even get the testing done because they don't test until you're a month from a scheduled date. Pissed off. Just take solace in the fact that once you get it, they can't take it away.
Need serious help getting insurance approval.
Real Kombo posted a topic in Duodenal Switch Surgery ForumHello everyone, After researching the various weight loss surgeries I have decided that the original duodenal switch operation is best in line with what I want in terms of weight loss. The problem is that I live in NY, and only the modified version is offered here. After doing research, I found Dr Keshishian in California, who seems to be very credible with alot of experience with the DS operation. However, I am trying to find a way to get insurance approval. I am currently on medicaid and it is highly unlikely that they would approve an out of state operation. I can afford private insurance, but am unsure of how I would go about getting the out of state approval that I need. I thought about getting insurance in California, but I would need state Residence and would have to live there. Any advice on what I could do would be MASSIVELY appreciated.
