@@jameka229 I'm counting, but I'm also finding myself going back and forth on my decision. I think last night when I was cooking dinner for everyone else I had a little breakdown for the first time since I started this journey. It isn't easy, but I know it'll be worth it :)

@@jameka229 I have been on the diet since 08/05. My dietician started me on it earlier than normal to get a good head start on liver shrinkage and weight loss. So by the time I actually have the surgery, I'll have been on that diet for almost a month. Then, I'll still be on some form of a liquid diet. It has been and will continue to be a struggle, but I know when I get that first taste of some kind of food..it will be so worth it LOL

I have a good support group, too. So glad that we all have people in our lives who are along with us for the journey and want us to be successful and healthy :) Thank you for the well wishes, as I wish you the same! xo

So after calling insurance all week- it looks like my pre-auth was originally submitted without a procedure code, and with the incorrect date?

It does show approval for one day inpatient, but it is for a date next year? So the rep I talked to said they have to resubmit with the correct day and ask for two days instead of one.

The insurance coordinator is not in the office today-- I feel like I am doing a ton of leg work that should be her job-- the things that were missing were pretty basic and how did they have the day wrong? ????????. Crazy--

So I think I am approved, but they need to resubmit! Ugh!!!! I am calling Monday Morning when she is back in the office!

Frustrated---

      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.
