I'm just wondering if any one else has gotten the lap band surgery at Henry Ford Hospital and what all they had to go threw before the surgery cause unfortunatly I have been going threw this process for 8months now and still dont have a surgery date yet. Whom else is going threw this? Help:bored:
  8. Hi everyone! Well I finally did my psych evaluation and I past it. She send my results to my insurance company for her approval so they called me the next day and told me I was approved. Only thing is when I called my surgeons office they schedule my next step appointment for February 10. So I was very excited about it but I didnt know I would have to wait another three months just to meet with the nutritionist. Then I will get my surgery date. Guess patience is a everything. So have anyone else been going thru a 6 month process of just waiting months and months for appointments.:eek:
