I have an appointment with my regular Dr in a couple days to talk about getting sent out to a bariatric surgeon. I was just hoping if anyone could give me an idea of the requirements Alliance requires for the surgery? I read where you have to be enrolled in Weight Watchers or a similar program in the last 2 years for them to approve it. Any information would be extremely appreciated!

Hi same person different account [emoji1]


After talking to my Dr I had to do a seminar then they call to make an appointment from the surgeons office after you complete that. They require 6 months of weigh ins and if you miss one they will make you start from the beginning even if it's your last appointment. So make sure you go.


-psych eval


-dietician eval


-history and physical done by primary


-labs


-cardiac clearance


-gi clearence. This one wasn't a normal thing I was already seeing him so that's why it was required.


-support group agreement. That was done when I was given all my paperwork.


- no drug or alcohol clearence letter from primary


- 2 years of primary care records


- a nutrion class


- a hospital wellness class


After they get all that they submitted it and it was 2 weeks later I got the call to schedule. Then 2 weeks after that I had my surgery. I had mine done in Modesto.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
