More red tape :(



Recommended Posts

So one of the things that I had to do for my insurance to approve is to do 6 months of supervised diets. That felt like it took forever. After that I am supposed to submit the stuff to the hospital so that I can meet with a nurse, dietician, and a mental health person. These are the steps that my surgeon's office said to follow. I called the hospital because I have finally completed the 6 months diets and they say oh you could have come to see us after the 4th appt with your doctor. I am mad because I could have already met with the people and I would be submitting to insurance for approval so now I am waiting for the hospital to call me back which can be days.

Why are you doing 4 months with your doc?

You are justly frustrated. It is too bad the Bariatric team did not let you know that before. But in the grand scheme just think of this as a slight delay. In the end it will be all worth it. Keep the faith. You are worth the effort.

I have to do 6 months of supervised diets because my insurance requires it. :(

      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.
