I have La Care medical. Has anyone been approved? Also how much did you pay out of pocket. If so can you please help me start the process. I would really appreciate the guidance❣️ Have a great day.

Have you tried calling the insurance company to see what the process is and what the estimated cost will be. You can get the procedure code from the surgeons office. If you normally pay a co-payment when you visit the doctor most likely they will apply, and if you need to reach a deductible the insurance company will be able to provide you with that information. When I went to my first appointment, my surgeon's office gave me a list of all the requirement needed by my insurance.

Good luck with your journey.

Yes I had my surgery done on April 29th and I feel amazing. I had no complications and went back to work one week after. I've lost 22lbs since surgery and 38 since I begin the process in October. Make sure you follow all of your requirements and before you know it surgery day will arrive.

My advice to you is never measure your weight loss sucess or journey with those of others.

Call your insurance company and ask them all these questions. They will explain the entire process and you’ll know exactly what you will owe

      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.
