Good afternoon. This will be my first weight loss surgery. I had a friend who had issues with the lap band as well and had to have it removed. My other friend had the sleeve in 2014 and she looks amazing. She is half of her old self. She went in for surgery at 300lbs and is presently 150lbs. I was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2015 and between chemo, menopause and medication I have gained 100lbs. Since my breast cancer is estrogen positive I needed to do something about my weight and that's when i decided on surgery after many failed attempts of doing it on my own. January of 2019 I started the process since my insurance had all these requirements I needed to fulfill before getting an approval. My preop appointment is on September 5, preop diet starts on September 12 and surgery is on September 23.

Every insurance company is different. I had several things to do during the 6 month period before everything could be submitted to the insurance company. My journey began back in January with my first appointment with my surgeon. I then had to see a dietitian for 6 months in a row and could not miss an appointment or I would have to start all over again. I had to see a psychiatrist, get an endoscopy, see a vascular surgeon, chest xray and attend seminar in the hospital. My paperwork was submitted and approved within 2 weeks. The only things I have left to do are another appointment with surgeon and appointment with my internist to have ekgs and bloodwork 2 weeks before surgery. My surgery is on September 23 😁 What does your health insurance require?
