Sorry, I just saw this. I'm very sick and the doctors are still figuring it out. It's gotten to the point where most food I'm unable to keep down. I'm weak and tired.

I am so sorry, Matty. Was very unlike you to go missing and had me worried. Please take care of yourself and keep us in the loop when you are able.

Sending good vibes and wishes for healing.

They'll get it figured out...I'm sure they will. So sorry you have to go through this, though.

Hang in there.

And add my good wishes to the mix, this is not the development we all hoped for. All my Piladelphia Deaming involved good things for you, I'm sorry but I'm getting a... . little scared.😢

Geez, Matt, I am sorry. I hope this isn't rude to ask: have they considered alternative nutrition? One of my colleague's wife chose to have her stomach removed because of genetic findings, and that is how she got her nutrition for a few months. Again, I am so sorry, and please keep us posted -- we care.

I don't really know what the future holds. At this point, I hope it is not cancer. I had pretty persistent nausea pre-surgery but never really did anything about it. I think I might be paying for this mistake. Well, Monday I will hopefully learn a few more things. I am sorry to be a Debbie Downer but when the surgeon is worried, I would say that's some cause.

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
