So, I am considering having WLS this year and was wondering if they considered Hidradenitis Suppurative to be a Comorbidity requierment, The only cormobidity I have is Gerd and I take Pepcid over the counter for it so im not sure if that would be enough to get me approved for the surgery or not, I currently have Molina Under Medicaid.

I guess it may depends if your surgeon can make a case for it to be included, According to the website link below excess weight can cause the symptoms to worsen.

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hidradenitis-suppurativa/symptoms-causes/syc-20352306

Would Molina tell you what the accepted comorbidities are and whether they consider others not on the list if the surgeon is able to make a case for it?

      A week and a day since surgery. Last night was the first night I got actually sleep, clocking in 7 hours. Oddly enough it's left me tired all day, but I didn't nap.
      2 days ago my gas pains subsided (woohoo!)
      I have aches and pains and of course sharp little pains around all the incisions (6 + 1 where the drain was), and I can't take the tylenol with codeine because it makes me feel like I have vertigo.
      I have started the countdown mentally to my soft food stage starting on Monday. Looking forward to that, can't wait to see if eggs and cheese will still be my friends.

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.
