Any March 2021 Sleeve Patients?



Recommended Posts

Hi - I am new to the site. My sleeve surgery is scheduled for March 10th. Anyone else here set for March? I am super anxious but also looking forward to it. I had a lap band in 2009 and a slip in 2014 that required removal. Curious as to what your pre-op diet looks like. I am on partial liquids now and full liquids for two weeks before the surgery.

Nice to meet everyone!

Hopefully they can get you scheduled! Sorry you are out of pocket - that is terrible but you will probably be saying it was money well spent. I had a number of procedures to have a baby that were all out of pocket and I don't regret a thing.

!

yay for insurance approval. Now I am getting nervous because my doctors office has said nothing about my insurance although the nurse manager verbally said I was good to go - I would like it in writing cause I don;t trust them one bit.

My doctor office hasn’t call me to tell me I got approve. I find out from letter sends to me from my insurance. Don’t worry you should be all set.

I wish that I wasn't out of pocket, that is what has held me back before is the $10,000. My BMI is about 32 which I know is low. Its more than just the weight loss that I'm hoping to have, its freedom from medicine for diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. I sure hope that is it money well spent, I keep talking myself in and out of it.
