Yeah... see now I feel like calling tomorrow .. Someone here that got surgery from that same hospital said they forgot to submit hers.. and almost missed her surgery.. I don’t wanna be one of the lucky ones. I will call tomorrow .

Take “feel like” out of the sentence and “get er done.” And don’t be afraid to tell them that you’ve checked with insurance who has no record of the pre-cert submission. They should be better, but some places won’t be unless you push them.

So apparentlyI won't be having the surgery on the 20th 😕 I called the hospital and apparently I will have to pay $1300 up front with Medicare to have it done. I really wish I would have known that before. The surgeon's office told me it would only be "around a $200 deductible" I will have to call and try to get it rescheduled tomorrow. I'm super bummed.

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all doing well and are ready for the weekend!

How is everyone who already had surgery?

I'm trying to keep my chin up here. Don't know if I will hear about the insurance on Monday or not--since it was only filed yesterday. God's timing is perfect though, so I'm trying hard to just relax into the process and accept that my experience is different than the expectation--and that is ok. LOL. It's def harder than it sounds!

I may not be around as much this weekend. It's my "really big weekend!" LOL. So I will miss you guys and will check back in on Sunday.

Hugs to all!!!

@Luisajfc Don't forget to call your doctor's office!!!

Just reading about all the insurance drama is breaking my heart! I can't imagine having to jump through hoops like that. Canada may be freezing for 6 months out of the year, but I am grateful that I don't have to worry about insurance, and that my expenses are covered.

Hugs to all of you still waiting for your final approval, and sending healing thoughts for everyone who had their surgery this week. There are so many of us that I'm having a hard time keep up with it all !!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
