Ugh. Just got word that insurance denied my surgery. They claim they got "no" medical information. HUH?? It's a surgeon's office and they have a dedicated person who does authorizations. It's not like she sent my name in on a post-it note. So angry, depressed, annoyed!! Doctor's office is on it , but still.

I am so sorry! It will get all worked out, but how upsetting! Hang in there. It’s just a bump in the road!

Oh no! I’m sorry- it doesn’t sound like a coverage problem though, so hopefully they’ll get it fixed. It’s super irritating when they make you wait forever though, just to be told that some one somewhere screwed up. Crossing my fingers for you!

Thanks. It *is* super irritating. I feel like I'm back in limbo again. I hope I don't have to change my surgery date.

That is horrible??? My Pain Management Dr's office is just like that. I hate having to double check their work.

Quiet thread, but I'm sure others will join. My date just got moved up to August 11th because of scheduling drama at the hospital. Suddenly that seems VERY soon!
Today i got a call from my surgeons office. The girl is giving me a date for Aug 30 and i still have one more dietician appt left and a home sleep study left the first week of august and still need my primary drs blessing along with labwork im guessing? It was a voice mail, but i want to know what is the rush, it really caught me off guard, it scared me

Maybe they’re just setting up the monthly schedule. It’s like 5-6 weeks out. You’ll be able to get everything done.

How are everyone's pre-op diets going? I start on Wednesday and I'm nervous but excited. My doctor's plan is pretty reasonable--two weeks of 2 Protein Shakes, one healthy meal, and a couple of Snacks a day if needed. The key is that I have to stay under 50g carbs and 1000 calories. It sounds a lot like doing slimfast when I was younger so I just hope it's more successful lol.

Still just waiting on my FMLA paperwork for work but otherwise everything is all set. I had my last pre-op appointment today to go over medications etc and I guess I'm ready?

I start mine on Monday. Pretty similar. Also 1000 calories. I can also have two Lean Cuisine/smart ones type dinners also (less than 300 calories), a fruit, veg and some SF Snacks.

My date is set for August 25th. Oddly, I don’t have to do a long pre-op diet. The surgeon only requires one done the day before surgery. I’m self pay so I didn’t have to jump through too many hoops. I’m nervous but so ready to change my life! I’ve lost over 100 pounds at least 5 times in the past, but it always comes back. Here’s hoping this will be the last time I have to lose it!

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
