GoodiDre, with southeast bariatrics you have the option to do the seminar online as long as you have a passing grade. Then once you take the test then you fax in the application and copy of insurance card and they call you the next day and my appointment was about 3 weeks out after they called me back.

Thank you, queencity!! I just found that Southeast is a "center of excellence" by my insurance, which means I can proceed. I'm logging into their online seminar now :)

For those of you waiting for an appt at Carolinas Weight Management... if you know that your insurance requires a medically supervised diet then you can go ahead and start that program with them while you wait for your seminar and surgeon appt. That's what my husband and I have done because I wanted to get started asap. My sister in law got sleeved with Southeast and has had great results

I'm in Greenville. Waiting on insurance approval. Once approved, I should be scheduled in mid August at Vidant Medical Center. Good luck to everyone.

I am near Hickory, but having surgery at UNC Chapel Hill. I am going tomorrow to meet with the surgeon and set my date. I hope it is within the next week.

Who is your Surgeon? I work at UNC Hospitals. I am going with Dr. Farrell.

Dr Farrell is doing my surgery. I REALLY like him. He is one of the few surgeons I have ever seen that didn't treat me like some oddball because of my abdomen.

Have you met with him yet? Do you have a surgery date yet?

I will meet him on August 18th. But I told Lisa that I want the date of Sept 17th. Hopefully he isn't booked up on that day. Everyone states he is awesome. I work for him, but never met him.. lol. I hear some people say they like Dr. Overby, but they think Dr. Farrell is just better. I went with Dr. Farrell 'cause a coworker had it with him & she adored him.

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
