i’m super irritated with my surgeon’s office. My surgery was scheduled for 3/12. They suddenly realized my secondary Ins BCbSIL requires my surgery to be at a “blue star” hospital. Sooooo my new date is 3/16. I realize it’s just a few days but I really do not want to have surgery at this hospital. My husband was treated there in the ER and they completely missed his gall stones. Sent us off and went on vacation to Napa and he ended up right back in the hospital vomiting and in severe pain and the doctor there said well I can see your gall stones on the ultrasound results. Didn’t they tell you that you have gall stones? Nope hey didn’t. So now I’m irritated my doctor office suddenly realized this requirement, I have to go to a hospital I don’t want to use, and I have to rearrange my time off at work. I’m sorry to vent but I know this is a safe place. Don’t you think the doctor office should have checked with my secondary Ins before today? What if there were more requirements?

First off, I am sorry that this happened -- how irritating! But you were fortunate to get a date at the blue start hospital so quickly -- and before you started your pre-op diet. Here's hoping nothing else pops up....

Hi All! This is my first time posting. I am scheduled form March 28th. My BMI is only 38 and I have mild sleep apnea. I am so afraid I will be denied. I have Aeta. Does any one have an experience with this? Good luck to all of you!

I had a BMI of 38 with a diagnosis of high blood pressure and was initially denied because my blood pressure was controlled(with bp meds) and my bmi was only 38..but I then went for a sleep study and was diagnosed with moderate obstructive sleep apnea.I was approved within a couple of days.I have UHC Community Plan.Best wishes and stay hopeful!!

Like @deirdreyr4, my BMI is 37 and sleep apnea turned out to be my co-morbidity. Insurance approved first try. Hope it works out for you!

Oh wow, insurance companies can be such a pain sometimes. I also have a “low BMI” 38 when I started the process. With high blood pressure controlled with medication. I have Cigna OAP. While going through all the test found out I also have mild sleep apnea. Luckily, I was approved with no problems got the good news just 5 days after office submitted.

I just had my last crab cake for a while. It was delicious!! Its 79 degrees today, and I met my husband at a local waterfront restaurant for lunch. I know its not forever, but I was a little sad to think that I probably won't be back there until this fall at the earliest. They do make the most stupendous gazpacho with lump crab in the summer, though. Hmmm....

Is anyone else having "last meals" before the 2-week pre-op starts?

Hubby and I went to Boston Lobster Feast the weekend before we started as our last mean and what a disappointment. Wish we had gone to Texas de Brazil instead. I feel cheated!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
