I understand your nervousness. My surgery is the 30th My surgery wasn't scheduled until after the insurance approval. I hope all goes well.

You can totally call and inquire about the status of your approval

Good Luck 💜

I have! There was a new form they needed my PCP to fill out and I’ve been waiting on them to send it back. I just called and they faxed it this morning so hopefully that’s the final thing to get my approval. Trying to remain positive.

They tell you that once they have all the paperwork, it can take a month...but mine took 2 days. And from what I've heard, others have had similar experiences. I'm just surprised the doctors scheduled it before they had approval. I'm sure it will come in.

Good luck. My surgeon's office wouldn't put the surgery on their calendar until I had insurance approval.

I was also in your shoes, my dr schedules 2-3 weeks out from when they submit everything so I was nervous but eventually it all worked out and I have faith that yours will too! Good Luck!

Thank you! I’m a bundle of nerves but I’m going to try to just enjoy the new few days off of work with my two little ones and let whatever happens, happen.

The coordinator called and let me know that the last two forms they requested are sent back and she designated everything as “urgent” with my surgery date next to it so she said if she doesn’t hear anything tomorrow, she’ll give them a call Monday.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
