Will stomach infection stop my approval



Recommended Posts

I had my endoscope done found had some gastritis and put on meds. Then ultrasound or together they showed a stomach infection, was put on two different antibiotics for 14days. I hope it is gone. Wonder if they will retest me to see if it is better. Do you thing or did you have an infection, what was the results? Did you pass for surgery?

I had gastritis and h pylori. The gastritis they said they could treat after the surgery but since they had to treat the other they treated both. I wasn't able to be cleared then due to other reasons but they said they couldn't submit to insurance until I was cleared.

I had severe ulcers in my esophagus and had to be retested after meds to be cleared. I don’t think you’ll be cleared with ANY type of active infection in your body. You’ll have to treat and retest i think.

That's what I was thinking

Have you took care of the situation that they were concerned with? Are you close or still not able to pursue?

I did the antibiotics which took two weeks and then I had to wait a couple more weeks before retesting. I was negative and then cleared. I had my surgery done on 6/6.

All they wanted was the negative test results and then I was cleared with that.

I've actually been real good. I've had no problems drinking/eating. Only a few gas pains and pain in general.

      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.

      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".
