I got $1000 from Aflac for my sleeve surgery. Two days for hospital and $500 for the actual procedure under my hospitalization policy. It was a great postop bonus! I submitted the bill from the hospital for the first part and had to get a copy of the OR report from medical records to verify the surgical procedure. I'm not sure about the difference between the $750 you saw and the $500 I got. I had no idea how much they would pay for the procedure and had estimated to receive $250, so the $500 was a nice surprise. I don't know about the short term disability because I don't have that AFLAC policy. Good luck!

Thank you for your reply. I guess I am kinda in freak out mode tonight as I start my liquid diet tomorrow and it is all becoming very very real. It seems I fought so long and hard and now that it is happening it is kinda freaking me out. I want to take 6 weeks off work. I have 2 disability policies and hope not to be out any cash in the long run. How fast did they pay you?

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
