Good News Bad News



Recommended Posts

Went to my seminar and met with the doctor and it all went very well. I'm a great candidate for the surgery but.... Good news is my insurance company; BCBS of Texas and my policy covers the surgery, bad news is I have to wait a year to do it as its a new insurance policy. Sigh...

That sux! Sorry to hear that. I know how discouraging it can be. The first time i went to get my consult in Oct i never made it past the insurance person bcz mine didn't cover it at all. Now i'm under new insurance and it does so I'm excited.. but initially i was crushed. Just learn what you can now and get prepared as much as you can and that way when it's time you'll be ready!

Ask you insurance what, if any guidlines you have to follow. A lot of insurance companies make you do a "supervised" diet for 6 months. If yours has that requirement then you know you need to start it during the summer so that way as soon as next year rolls around you will already have done that part.

      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.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
