Anyone else financing?



Recommended Posts

I am financing due to being 38.5 bmi. The advantage is that I can be scheduled two weeks after meeting the surgeon! I believe the lapband is best for me. Anyone else financing?

Your member name defies me.

You are not going to have a lap band, surely? The success of gastric sleeve operations in substantially higher than lap band.

I'm confused.

Please explain.

Sent the sleeve. It was a typo LOL. I'm getting the gastric sleeve the second week of June and I don't know how to at my post. Please be kind.

and yes, I would never get a lap band. I have not heard of any long-term success as it seems to slip even years and years after being put in. My mom got a gastric sleeve six months ago and has had success.

Good luck on your journey and to answer your question, no sorry I didn’t finance. Insurance covered my surgeries.

I met with my surgeon today and I have a 36.9 BMI so I’ll be financing too. Waiting to hear from the finance rep to see how payments work. Did you have to do a down payment?

I too am financing / self pay.

I was going to go with Prosper but I did not like their interest rate. I am getting a loan from my credit union.

Prosper was very nice to work with.

Hi all - Am very upset to have learned that my "top flight" BCBS PPO will not approve my DS (being done 9 years after a sleeve). Have you found financing through your hospital billing/financial assistance office to be an option? Can't believe I may have to self pay.

Will they pay for RNY gastric bypass instead, or they won't pay for any bariatric surgery?

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
