Timeline after weigh-in appointments?



Recommended Posts

I have my last follow up/weigh in appointment this week! I’m so so excited and the 7 months really flew by! But I do my psych eval and my last appointment on Thursday and I’ve already taken care of all other necessities like bloodwork, urine test, sleep study... so this should pretty much be it! So unreal. Just curious how anyone whose already been here- how long did it take and what was the process after this point? I believe I need to meet with the surgeon but I’m not sure what else. And how long did your insurance take to get back to the dr? Ahhh! So excited! And excited to hear everyone else’s experience! Thank you

After I completed all the requirements my program had an informational class and then we met with the surgeon one on one. They submitted to insurance the next day and it took 3 weeks for my approval. After that I scheduled my surgery and last pre op appointment. My last appointment was 2 days before surgery. I am now 3 weeks and a few days post surgery.

After my last appointment it took 3 days for my approval to come back from insurance. My surgery was scheduled out for 5 weeks or so. Would have been sooner but I pushed it back due to work.
