thanks guy' date=' needed that! now that i am back to myself, time to fight! monday i will be able to plea my case before the advocate, hopefully they can squeeze me in before the doc goes on his christmas vacation. if not, wipe the dust off my feet and move quickly on to the next reputable doc that can see me before the 31st.

Unfortunatly it's a totally different ins company, so no hope of it being honored.

Good thing i'm in Houston, so i have lots of choices - just gotta find the right one quickly.

BTW - i went to my car and had a small pitty party :( , but i'm ready to move forward i got till 12-31 to make it happen kaptain :ph34r:[/quote']

I went to one doctor and was going to have a $3800 out of pocket expense... I switch doctor..mmmyoi should switch don't take the chance of not being covered.

WELL... as of this morning I was able to secure a December date with another doctor (Sheilendra Suresh Mehta, M.D.) he works with now my old doctor (Erik B. Wilson, M.D.). As a matter of fact I met him before I met with Dr. Wilson – what a strange twist of fate. Now I just need to steady my nerves and take it one day at a time. I know God is in control and everything works just the way He planned, not as I planned...

THANKS FOR THE ENCOURAGEMENT AND SUGGESTIONS, YOU GUYS ROCK :wub:

I had the same issue. I am changing the insurance providers in Jan. I had my initial appointment with the surgeon 11/19 and explained my situation and he said I should be able to get everything done to get it completed before the end of the year. I had to make numerous call backs to make sure everything was moving along, but I now have a date for 12/17 and I will just have to worry about follow up appointment coverae and prescriptions, but I should be fine:-)I wish you luck! Talk to you doctor though and let him know your situation. You'd be suprised how much they will try and help you.

Well I was sleeved on 12/28 @ 7:30am.

The procedure it self appears to have gone well. But I cannot keep any liquids down, every time I take a sip of anything I feel it bubbling around in my chest & tummy area - eventual end up throwing it up. So now I'm back to nothing but the iv only. My nurse said I may be here another day cause they can't release me till they know I can keep down the liquids.

I still have not passed gas, but I've been burping all over the place. I take a walk after I use the restroom, hoping to get the air moving.

Please keep me in your prayers

I the same problem. My new tummy was so swollen I couldn't get anything down and I failed my leak test bc of it. I was sleeved on a Monday leak test Tuesday morning then had to stay until Thursday which they then repeated the leak test and even though better it was still moving through slowly. Every day does gets better you were just sleeved 2 days ago. Days 2 & 3 were the absolute worst for me.

Try to stay positive and get walking if you haven't yet it does make a difference. I was burping right out of surgery and was very nauseated. Then passing gas for me didn't start until Thursday 3 days postop. So be patient. It will happen. I asked my nurses for those little sponges. I dipped them in Water and would suck that. Hope you feel better.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
