Impatiently waiting for Aetna



Recommended Posts

Congrats.. I am hoping they approve it. I have sleep apnea and high blood pressure. I keep changing my vacation from work so I can use the time. My Dr. put a tentative date of Oct 15 or 16th. I am hoping to have it the last week in Oct.

If I dont het approved I am going to be devastated..trying to get all this completed before deductible kicks in again

I called Aetna the day before I found out I was approved. The rep advised that I ask my Dr's nurse representative to call and speak with the nurse reviewing my pre-cert. Within 3 hrs I received the call back from her that I was approved! You may want to do the same. I had been waiting 28 days.

I'm still waiting. It's been almost a month now. I'm also still on the waiting list for my sleep test they denied. Waiting for an at home machine. Sure hope this ends positively soon, so I can move forward with my life

Jessica108 I know this waiting game has to suck really bad. My Dr. submitted my request on Friday Oct 11th. I am BMI 41ish now after losing 24 on the required 90 day diet by Aetna. My paperwork was submitted with a surgery date of 10/29. I do not have any comorbidities and that is what worries me. I hope that they get you the in home machine ASAP so you can get to moving on with the process. Praying and fingers crossed for you.

Hi, I'm new to this site and I'm anxiously waiting to hear from Aetna. My nutritionist said she received my last exercise report from the Personal Trainer on 09/30. She said it may take up to 3 weeks for an approval/denial. I want to call Aetna and check on the status, but I'm trying to wait out the 3weeks. I guess this is just the nerve racking part....trying hard not pull my hair out!! LOL!!!MMmmmm mnmmmj M

Hi everyone

i'm also waiting for the approval . paperwork was submitted Oct 2.

i called Aetna yesterday they said they haven't received anything.

i immediately called the surgeon's office and the nurse told everything is alright, they received my paperwork and it's PENDING.

BMI : 40

age : 25

suffered from asthma many times and knees pain

My 2 yr history is the only concern because they're from my country.

i'm extremely anxious and can't focus on my studies :(

i hope i don't have to go through the appealing thing because my English is bad and i give up so easily :(

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
