My paper work is being sent in tomorrow and I’m Praying to be approved. Hopefully for November! I have united heath care. Was it hard for y’all to get approved? Did it take a long time to get a answer?

My request was denied in under a day lol, but my insurance is not united health care, my insurance is not covering my surgery I will be self pay, but it is not unreasonable, and also my Dr. Called me before hand and explained that they knew I would be denied but still was willing to try for medical necessity and gave the insurance a dummy date. If I had comorbidities I think I would have been approved, I will say this that I also waited to submit for everything until after I had completed the Psych portion, I feel that is a key component. Send it in, and get to know your scheduler where you are planning to be seen they can help you every step of the way weither insurance covers or not. GOOD LUCK Though!

Good morning everyone! We are one week closer to getting our sleeves complete!!! I have my appointment with nutrition tomorrow to talk about every thing and get my follow up plans and Saturday I got my official surgery paper work complete with two week pre op prep directions it felt so so so real!!! And I have to say it looks manageable. 4 shakes and veggies a day, plus a handful of fruit and a boat load of water... I got so excited I ordered a few shakes to sample already! Any one else? What are your goals this week? mine in addition to trying some shakes is to walk 20 minutes to 30 minutes outside... if I walk my development twice it will give me a mile... every step counts!

Scheduled for November 21st, the day before Thanksgiving! Worried about how understanding the inlaws will be about the holidays, because I honestly don't know if I will be able to handle being in a house that is full of delicious food smells, even by Christmas. I may not be out of pureed food by then, and from how emotional I've heard some people can get, I really don't know if I can be around all that food without having a meltdown.

I am scheduled for the 27th of Nov. I feel your pain. But I think we got this and we can get through these holidays together if needed. Hopefully we will be able to enjoy the holidays.

Hugs I am sure it is an overwhelming time like the previous poster said you can do this!

I agree I am so used to trying to hide when I walk in a room, but so clumsy I usually trip walking in... but it would be refreshing to feel that confidence of I am here!
For the last 3 years, i have been avoiding all reflective surfaces. Which means, front glass doors. Which means I always stand to the side when knocking on peoples' front doors. I m.sure people think its freaky,,,looking forward to presenting a normal persona in this world. Lol

I am also scheduled for Nov 6th. I'm really looking forward to being able to play with my toddler without running out of breath after 30 seconds of activity. I'd also like to stop destroying furniture.

We're date twins! :) Yes, I too would love to be able to keep up with my daughter

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
