Prerequisites Completed!



Recommended Posts

Good Evening Everyone!

I have been on the road to this place my entire life. I am so happy that I finished all the prerequisites and am now awaiting insurance approval before my date is set. I came close to getting the surgery two times before but fear took over and I didn't follow through. THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT. I am nervous but also excited. I feel like Covid has kind of put my life into a focus that was never there before. Its weird though because I am the happiest I have ever been in my life and can't wait to see how much happier I can get with the weight loss that will come after the surgery. What are some of the biggest changes you have noticed in your life? What makes you happy? What makes you sad? What is something unexpected that came of you making this huge change? Curious what this community is all about. Excited to see your replies. Hope everyone has a great evening!

Woo Hoo!! I remember the excitement of having all my pre-surgery clearances done. I think I got my surgery date about 3 weeks after that! It's been a whirlwind of goodness, and I hope it is the same for you!!

Finishing prerequisites is a huge accomplishment! Congrats 🎉

Biggest change for me was taking an honest critical look at my diet and now that I don't have to focus on my weight being "the problem", I realized what would make me happy is having $ 3B and conversely not having $ 3B makes me sad.

An unexpected revelation is my new found deep appreciation for elective/cosmetic/plastic surgeries

It's amazing how you work and work to get approval and how looooong it seems to take. But then you get that phone call with your date--BAM!! it's here! Einstein was right about time....

I finished all my pre-rec appointments last Friday! On Monday I was notified that everything was submitted to insurance and Thursday (yesterday) I found I was approved and got assigned an official surgery date: 9/28! They offered a much earlier surgery date but I'm going to be out of town. The longest wait has officially started ....!
