My insurance will pay 100% after the deductible and will pay me $1000 for using a preferred surgeon. So I will be $500 out of pocket.

They paid nothing i paid it in cash = But 15k later was the best money i have ever spent - If i did not spend it i would most likely be in a URN shortly!

I had a co-pay for the surgeon's fees, which turned out to be about $500. All hospital charges were covered at 100%.

pretty much 99%. I met my out of pocket maximum before surgery but I had other medical stuff throughout the year. So by the time surgery came I paid like $640 which was the hospital stay. i used the rest of my HSA money to pay for that.

I had CIGNA PPO Premium

Yes I just found out I have to pay $4423. I’m kinda crushed as this is so much money for myself.

Pretty much all of it. I had co-pays for doctors visits $30-40, and then some $100-200 co-pays for surgery and procedures. But that is a drop in the hat compared to what it could have been!

Our Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO plan has a $3,500 out of pocket max I had to meet first for the year then they paid the rest. Money well spent.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.
