I have not had surgery yet, I am in the process of looking at the options and also looking to see if my insurance will help


My insurance has agreed to pay for it, but I have to follow 6 months of the program before they will preform the surgery....so I am now starting my journey..........here we gooooooooooooooooo!

I have finished my 6 month process and I was approved!! I have to go in for an EGD tomorrow (5-1-13) and then later tomorrow or Thursday I will call the Dr.'s office and we will set up the surgery date.

I am very nervous but excited at the same time :)
