Finished all my pre-requisites... everything will be sent to insurance next week! NERVOUS.



Recommended Posts

I did everything included in my multi-disciplinary program through the hospital, passed the psych eval, attended all my classes, and got clearances from a couple of my doctors! NOW IT'S TIME TO GET EVERYTHING SENT. I have a sinking feeling like somehow I will get denied still?? Is this normal? Cross your fingers for me, yall!

I am with you. I will have my last nut appointment next week and then they will submit everything... I am so nervous that something will go wrong and I will be denied. I think it natural to worry.

Good luck, I am not one to say what is "normal", but I felt that same way when it was finally time to send in all the stuff to the insurance company. I was sooo nervous that I would be declined even though I went through all the hoops. But for me everything went through fine.

And when someone,in something denies you, you will,sit and cry your eyes out. That is so much me I have the jacket to prove it. I was blindsided, thought if you were fair and honest with someone, it would only be to,my benefit. Wrong! But I was one of those infrequent happenings, you all will not,be!! And I will taste victory and I have to believe,you will be sweeter for the wait.😁

Luckily for me I went on a two-week vacation after they submitted my request to the insurance company, and I didn’t think about it while on vacation. When I got home, I called for a status update, and learned I’d been approved!

I had that feeling from day 1. I went to my surgeon to see about him fixing a hernia I currently got (1st time) and he suggested the sleeve because he could fix the hernia but because of my weight there was a strong chance of it just re-opening or another opening somewhere else. I had talked about bariatric with my Primary Doc but it was nothing more than a suggestion from her and a nod "i'll give it some thought" from me. After getting a bit excited when I left the surgeon it hit me. Would be just my luck go through everything and insurance says No Go.

I'm sure all will go well for you and all others waiting to hear, myself included (fingers crossed).

Either way keep up posted on updates and best of luck!!!!

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
