Hopefully Tuesday I will have some good news. I have to go in talk with my doctor again and see if he will do me a referral to Dr.Miles even though he is in my insurance network they said I would still have to get a referral from my primary dr yes I qualify for the surgery bc I am 5'8 and 400+ lbs with high blood pressure, diabetic and I think sleep apnea. So hopefully Monday he will approve it for me and I can start my process

I'm in AL. Surgery date was 9/7/15. My insurance wouldn't pay anything on it so I went to Tijuana, Mexico. Best decision I ever made for myself!

Update: Having great success with my sleeve down 54lbs as of today!!!!! Having problems getting my Water in and also my Vitamins. Ugh the multi Vitamin does not sit well with my stomach. I take on a full stomach but I need to find another one besides the bariatric Multi-Vitamin. I feel great and cant wait to reach my goal. How is everyone else doing?
