My information was submitted to my insurance company today for my revision from sleeve to bypass. I am praying that I get an approval fast, so ready for this surgery to work this time. I graduate in July with my BS and hoping that I am well after the surgery to walk across the stage. Praying I get approved and have the surgery in May. My surgeon stated that my insurance company takes about a month for approval praying it doesn’t take a month for approval.

Keep in mind that not only does it take up a month for approval from insurance, but your surgeon's office is probably already booking surgeries out six weeks in advance too, so it might take some time to get on their schedule.

Yep that's what the gap for me worked out to be, 7/17 to 9/05 2018. A few get lucky and get theirs quicker, but 6 weeks seems universal.

I was approved right away but had to wait another 2 months for my surgery.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
