I have been looking too, my doctor does not take care.credit and will only take financing from finance companies if you are self pay, I have insurance but can't afford the out of pocket right now so I have been stuck since last September when they initially set my surgery date. Is there any finance companies that would pay the money to me so then I could pay the doctor's.

Hi. I just started my journey and just joined this site. I was fortunate to get my financing approved before finding a dr. I found this site and it's loaded with info. I fell fortunate to be part of it. I got financing with United Medical Credit. I was able to to use a co-signer and the terms are ok considering I have to loose a ton of weight. My advice is start locally in your area some Dr's will provide financing some will not. When I mentioned I had a full time job but bad credit, I got a bunch of "we can't help you's" a few mentioned United Medical Credit. I feel blessed with a chance to start my life over. I am currently checking out the local Dr's for the best one. Good luck!!!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
