With the ekg did you have to have your bra off?


Live life to the fullest

I had to do mines with my bra off. They said the underwire would affect the test. My technician was a female.

I also have UHC. My UHC nurse told me I had to have 6 consecutive nutritional visits but I could go back 2 prior years and use those appointments:) I am going to use my personal doctor.

But are you already scheduled to receive the phone call? When I called to UHC they asked basic questions in order to know if I was or not a candidate for the Weight loss program and during the same call the representative scheduled my phone call with Nurse for 3 weeks later.

At least you were able to finally start the process.

Thanks for the information I was advised today by a UHC rep in addition to all you mentioned I would also need to provide UHC with a minimum of 5 years worth of morbid obesity diagnosis from my physician and that my plan only covers 70% after meeting my deductible. It has me feeling realllllly down because getting the surgery out of the country would be a cheaper out of pocket for me but what makes me pause on that is my physician is not on board with me getting the sleeve outside of the United States so I will do all I can to get it approved and If i don't get approved I will look into getting the surgery outside of the U.S.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
