I came back to this post because I got an invite to the fb page today. I asked the secretary at the first window about it, she had me write my info down for her, and a few hours later I got the invite. If you haven't gotten one yet, they want the email associated with your account, name, and what your profile photo looks like so they know they have the right person.

BTW: My packet is ready for insurance submission as of today, woot woot!

I had to go into the office last week. My packet should have gone out 2 weeks ago and I found out it hadn't. The psychologist's office never submitted my paperwork to Rex and when I called them TWO WEEKS AGO, the receptionist giggled and said "oops! It has been sitting here for two months. Teehee!" Shame on me for thinking that after bringing it to their attention, they'd actually send it out.

So yes, I needed to go into the office in person to find it out. While there, Krista sent me the invite as I was standing there. I'm in too, hurray!

MAJOR confetti for your packet getting submitted. Here's to being approved the first time around!

OMG! I think I would have blown my top! It's weird, because last week I had emailed Krista to ask if she had all my paperwork. My psych report wasn't in the packet either, and I had done it months ago. I had the psych office re-fax it Monday, and when I asked the front desk to make sure it came through, she had to look through a big stack of paper to find it.

I hate that happened to you. I hope you hear back soon. I would ask if they would expedite the surgery date since they delayed sending it out. :)

I just called my insurance company and they have not received anything yet, so I'll be calling tomorrow to see when they are going to fax it. I feel like it should have at least gone out by today. I hate to be a pain but I have work conflicts and can't afford to be delayed!

I had the ds on 4/14/17. I feel great. I have lost a total of 41 pounds. 26 since my surgery. I still can't eat much and I am taking my Vitamins. My bathroom issues haven't been a problem. Maybe because I'm not eating much. I have my labs done tomorrow.

@ChaosUnlimited - My packet FINALLY went out last Tuesday. Now the waiting game begins. AHHH!

That is great! I hope you hear from the insurance quickly, and get a date. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Mine was ready to go last week on Monday. I checked with my insurance company and they didn't get it last week, and when I spoke with the person who submits the packets she said it would go out by this Monday (yesterday). As of today my insurance still hasn't received it. I'm so frustrated. I have a tight timeline that is growing shorter due to upcoming things at work and I feel so pressured to try to get this done asap so I can be back in the office before July. Ugh!

Was your surgery on 3-14 or 4-14? I remember your post when you were pre-op and getting ready. That is quite an accomplishment, I bet you have to go clothes shopping already! I'm glad to hear that you are doing well. How long did you have to wait to start walking and doing light exercise? I've been wondering how the pain is after surgery.
