Recommended Posts

I am so nervous and excited. Not nervous about the actual surgery! Nervous that my insurance will decide to not cover for some crazy reason. The anxiety is killing me.

Being in the hospital over a holiday is kind of cool. I've done that a few times and noticed you get the better nursing staff that come in for the extra holiday pay. I was shooting for that week as well, but my PCP is scrubbing in to assist so he had me pushed back two weeks just so he could get his mitts into my guts.

I am a huge fan of my family doctor. ;-)

Wow thats kinda cool your pcp is assisting. My surgeon is new at the practice but did the surgeries in ky, but I've been extremely impressed by his bedside manner, very attentive and genuinely interested in me as an individual, but I found his partner who is the leading bariatric surgeon in the region is assisting, so I'm excited to have two very experienced surgeons with their mitts in my guts lol.

The lady at the desk kinda made it sound unusual that he assists but it could be because of my size and bmi..

I can't believe it's only like 10 days away.getting really anxious.

Well my surgery was canceled, I recieved my denial letter on wednesday, all because the morons at my surgeons office insisted that i only had to do 4 months with the NUT. Well turns out that if she would of listened to me when i told her my plan specifically requires 6 months of visits with the NUT i would not be crushed right now. My only other issue is that i submitted weight histories for 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012. Turns out i was not at a bmi of 35 until 2009. I have now requested my weight history from my Dr. in Florida for 2008 (we had briefly relocated to FL and when we moved back i lost the info for who the dr. was since i only visited him twice i couldnt remember his name) My friend figured it all out for me and the request has been sent. Keeping fingers crossed that my bmi was 35 in 2008. Surgery will be rescheduled sometime in August. Good luck to you all.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
