DS surgery date set for November 18, 2019 but insurance denied me



Recommended Posts

Did my classes, scheduled a date (I'm a teacher, doc said he deeply appreciated teachers and military and wanted to book around my schedule).

But then I was denied by my insurance. I'm guessing my employer plan doesn't cover it. I'm hoping my surgeon can appeal on my behalf. I have a BMI in the mid 40's with comorbidities.

I'm excited, and nervous. My school is going to let me take almost 2.5 months off to recover and figure out my new lifestyle.

Hoping the best for you. The surgeon's appeal can pull a lot of strings.

Thanks, I sure hope so! With my background working in other industries, I'm privileged enough to be able to pay cash if I need to, but obviously I'd prefer not to!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
