I'm praying i will be approved by my insurance company to have the sleeve procedure. I'm so scared it won't happen. Can you pray for me?

I get not PUSHING beliefs on others, but i dont feel any of your posts have ever done this. There are people talking about being vegan after surgery, just because I am not vegan doesnt mean i cant read or need to be offended that they are different. Whats going to happen if a non Christian reads your post? Will it burn holes through their retinas, no! I feel that whether i share it or not, if someone is using their beliefs in a positive way, there is no harm done. This world needs as much POSITIVITY as it can get! I welcome, thoughts, vibes, prayers to whatever god u believe in, because the fact that you took a minute of YOUR day to do something positive for me is very thoughtful. Just my opinion......

2 hours ago, The Preacher said:

I have been praying about this, and really feel led to do it.

I have been criticized for sharing my faith in Jesus Christ on this website, I truly do respect others feelings because it certainly is their right to believe or not to believe, even God does not force one to believe in Him, it must be of one's own free will.

I feel deeply that there are some on here that would love to be prayed for, before surgery, during surgery and after surgery, so here's what I am willing to do, if I can be of some comfort to anyone, please email me at brotherron98@gmail.com

I assure you that I do have a personal and close relationship with the Lord, he does and always has answered my prayers, and I'm sure as long as I walk in his ways, he will continue to answer them, so please if I can help you in any way, email me.

Sincerely, The Preacher.

I'd like to add my prayers to that as well. Where there are two or more gathered...

As you know in a little,more than 2 weeks I will,be having my Bariatric surgery after 3 years of planning , trying, and continuing to try for I believe this is something the Lord has planned for me.
My friends, I ask that the Great Physician "Scrubs" in with my surgeon. That with his help my surgeon's hands will be swift, sure and true. And that I be restored to health that I may continue to be of service to,others. And that God's purpose and plan for,my life continues .🙏Amen and amen!

I've been on this website since January and never seen someone criticize another person for praying. I've seen people say "I'm not religious so please don't pray for me" but that is more of creating boundaries instead of a personal attack.

I don't believe in prayer yet here I am reading this post and saying go for it. If it betters yourself and those around you then don't hesitate to do it. I've had many people of different beliefs pray for me when I got my surgery and I didn't mind because they were doing it out of kindness.

I'd welcome your prayers on Thursday when I have my sleeve surgery here in Colorado Springs! Like someone else said in this thread, I'm praying that the Lord scrubs in with my surgeon and has His hand on this whole journey!

      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.

      2. GradyCat

        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.
