I remember back,thinking those months would never end, was I ready? was there anything I could have done better? Can I really do this thing?
But stay faithful,do your testing, watch,your diet, follow every rule,your doctor hsd, he or she has been doing this business longer than you.
And then the day will finally come. , you will be less 3 days to go. And that old bugaboo, Father Time,that,you felt wasn't cooperating,all the sudden you are riding that runaway freight train to surgery, did you pack everything you wanted to take? What are you going wear there? And have you got food stuffs ready for when you get home or are you making an emergency run to Target or another store? Do you have your laundry caught up? Nothing worse,than coming home to 3 baskets and you can't lift 10 pounds. Are the animals taken. care of, how about your spouse and kids? one thing, that I still gotta do, change out the,litter in the cat box, won't be wanting to bend over there soon
Do you have a living will,or power of attorney paperwork. Did you remember to have your insurance cards and med list? Do,you,have a charger for you cell phone. All the sudden these small,stuff worries pop up, and you kill them all. And you put a smile on your face, a song on your lips,hope in your heart, and you go check in. You're ready. you go peacefully to sleep,knowing your are safe with,the best team possible,,while you are asleep, magic will be performed , and when you wake your new life begins, and it will be,good, a little more good healing and you can utilize the changes for good.

I just got scheduled for November 21, the day before Thanksgiving! I'm bummed that I have to wait that much longer, but I'm actually sort of relieved that I won't have to face the rest of the family in a house full of food while on a liquid diet. My mother in law still would've expected me to bring a side dish even though I couldn't eat it! She is trying to be supportive but she really doesn't get it yet.

I'm set for Nov. 15th for surgery- I've started panicking a bit thinking about the liquid diet, etc. I've been reading as much information as I can trying to prepare!!

      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.
