Hiii! ☺ I have my consultation January 11, 2017. Unfortunately my insurance doesn't cover WLS so I have to self pay. I'm still super excited and ready for this!

That means you'll get a quick surgery date after completing your surgeons requirements instead of waiting a week to a month for approval from your insurance

With my situations im going through insurance...I had my first initial appointment Nov 17th...then it took them a week to get back with me...my patient advocate emailed me my surgeons requirements which I started getting done right away. After that it took them another 2 weeks to submit my request for approval to my insurance and that rook another week...and then another week to get scheduled...but remember I did mine around the holidays so it took a little longer with the holiday delays...also my insurance requirements weren't much...I had to have been 18 years or older, a Dr. Recommendation (my surgeon), to be either 35 plus bmi with morbities or 40 plus BMI without morbities...then I need to a psych evaluations and dietician evaluation staring I understood my post diet requirements. So Im 46.2 BMI with sleep apnea (a morbity requires for approval if under 40 bmi) so about a month and a half... hope that helps

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
