TriCare Approved Now I Wait:(

I actually researched my insurance to see if they would cover it. My insurance has a website where they can give you an estimate of costs. I found the center that would do it and did the orientation. However I think a lot of people go through their primary care doctors for a referral or letter of support. I'm currently starting the process of getting everything I need and my center is being very helpful.

I did get my initial refferal from my primary care for hiatal hernia repair. I met with two different doctors and they both highly recommended I also get the RNY. So that is how it worked out for me.

It took less than 5 days for them to approve. I had to do 3 months of check-ins, and show a little weight loss. Now if they would allow elective surgeries here in Jacksonville, Fl.

I’m in Jax also. Who’s doing your surgery?

That is where I just had my sleeve done Jacksonville. I too had to be approved through tricare. I was supposed to get my surgery done though this past summer because we’re moving at the end of October. but tricare took til august to approve. Was supposed to have it done last month but then covid. They just opened up for surgeries in Jacksonville so hopefully you’ll be in. Now we are pcsing to California and I’ll only be 5 weeks post op. Best of luck!

I "WAS"scheduled for my RNY on 10/19, BUT my Dr. has to leave for two weeks on a family emergency. So now I am scheduled for 11/4. Please nomoredelays.

I’m so sorry. I definitely know how frustrating that is. I thought I was going to have to wait until we moved and I was so irritated. Here’s to hoping this is your date :)

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
