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

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      I had my Bypass Surgery on 04/25/2019 I'd weighted before surgery 308 and now 285. I get depressed because I thought it would be more. I follow all instructions from Dr.. Green walk every day work out and eating solid foods

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
