Recommended Posts

hello all, I am new to this forum and live in North Carolina . my first consultation was in November 2017 , I am in pre-op status now... I ahve finished all the stuff on the checklist...I just have the endoscopy to do and then we submit everything to BCBS of NC for approval ... hoping I do not have to wait 12 months ... I have been working with my primary doctor for 2 plus years, trying medical diets, etc... and she has vouched for me and has provided me with her letter of recommendations and all the documentation stating my attempts of dieting. I am wondering if this can count towards the 12 months so I don't have to wait.. Any input would be greatly appreciated! :)

Hi glamgirl,@fireman in Greenville will be so,happy to see another North Carolinian on here. Where in that beautiful state are you located? My daughter and her husband lived for a short in Roanoke Rapids in Halifax County. I hope your stuggles,with BCBS are small and over soon. I'm in Central Ohio and will,have RnY within the next 6 weeks. I've done a lot of studies and would be happy to be a resource person for you on this journey. Sunny Days and a Bright,Future for you.

Waiting to hear the results of this as well. My friend is interested and has BCBS of NC as well. Yes another North Carolinian. I can’t be of help as I am paying for mine. This is interesting as my doctors office told me insurances don’t cover DS. However I’ve seen a couple people in the forum they have had theirs covered by Insursnce-United Health Care. Anyway good luck! P

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
