Weigh in number 5 of 6 with my PCP and a ?



Recommended Posts

Well I had my weigh in with my pcp on saturday. I gained 5 lbs from last time when i was 252. I kinda knew it (aunt flo is in town as well so maybe that added like a pound). So when i started i was 251 and now im 257. great....just great.... I have my last weigh in on sept 21 and then i will go back for my second surgical consultation.

My Pcp suggested for me to lose btwn 5-10 lbs. I hope this can be done in 3 weeks.

The question is for those of you that had a 6 month requirement.... were they very strict about the visits being a month apart exactly . For the most part my visits have been but this last one is about a week shy of being a month..

Yes I have Bluecare network in Mi and they are ver strict with your pcp appointments if theybare not consecutive for 6 months straight you have to restart all over again.

Sounds like you're asking if they have to be exactly 1 month apart?

Check with your surgeon's office. You'll want to be sure for your ins requirements.

I know one of my months was 5 weeks apart and another month 3 weeks apart.

Yes. If I missed a month I would have had to start all over again.

Yes this is exactly what i am asking. Do they have to be exactly one month apart. so far i have weighed in on 4/29, 5/25, 6/29, 7/27 and 8/31. my next one is scheduled for 9/21 is that far enough apart?

That was similar to my situation but I would still check with the office that will send in your info to the ins for approval. They should know for your ins.

My 6 months (thru bcbs) have to be completed consecutively but the actual dates in the month don't matter. Like everything else, seems requirements are across the board :/

      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.
