Medicare's rules are you have to be banded at a Center of Excellence BUT the Surgeon's who operate out of that Center of Excellence also have to take medicare if you plan to use medicare for your entire procedure. I found in my area that most of the surgeons DID NOT accept medicare, my surgeon didnt, so I had to pay the surgeon's fee's and medicare covered the hospital fee's since it was done at a Center of Excellence. That is a little bit of information medicare doesnt list on there center of excellence listing, they dont tell you that not every surgeon accepts medicare, you have to call each place that operates out of the hospital you choose to see if they accept medicare. Just wanted to share that information.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
