I found out yesterday I got insurance approval! And I just got a date! February 19th. But I have a question. My surgeon's office let me know what I have to pay them for the surgery but it's only to cover the cost of the surgeon and the assistant surgeon and it has to be paid at my pre-op appointment. But they don't know what I will owe for the hospital, anesthesiologist, and pathology. Nor do they know when I will need to pay it? Do y'all know if this is something they bill later like normal stuff or what?

So each hospital is different. I had surgery at a one hospital that asked for a credit card on file, and another time a different hospital they wanted my copay, which was like $250 up front. I think some of this is hospital policy, the other part is how much your deductible/copay will be.

Congrats on your insurance approval. We are surgery twins! I’m having my surgery in Richmond, VA. How about you?

@Aodhanmom that's exciting!! I'm in Kansas! I'm soooo excited. My insurance kept telling me I would need to do the whole 6 month diet thing but it had been removed from their policy that was just revised so my surgeon office decided to just send in the prior authorization just to see what they would say. I'm so pumped and ready for this new life!!!!

Hey February Graduating Class, are you guys excited? Look at it this way, after I have my surgery on January 31st, your group will start crossing the stage... If you have questions or anxiety is settling in, read the January or prior months ahead to hear everyone's experiences.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
