It took 9 days for my insurance to approve my July 3 gastric bypass. Good luck to you!

Did you get a letter or a call? Will be so nice to know for sure! Congrats on your approval. I was hoping for an earlier July date because I have to go back to work August 1st, not allowing for a lot of recovery time. Good luck to you!

I have BCBS of IL and I received a call just before the end of the business day yesterday. I was so excited and relieved that I cried on the phone with the rep! LOL

I'm a hs teacher, so I return to work in September. I'm glad to have plenty of time to recover.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
