Well, I’ve hit a little bit of a bump in the road.

The appointment I had with the WLS surgeon on the 25th had to be canceled as that particular clinic is out of network with my insurance, but they didn’t tell me until 2 days ago.

I immediately reached out to another clinic and they ARE confirmed to be in network. They explained the steps required by my insurance.

First they requested records from my PCP yesterday. Once those are received, they’ll schedule a consultation with their WLS, then I’ll have to have a psych eval and a nutrition assessment.

So the process is slowed down a little, but I’m determined to make this happen.

For most it can be a lengthy process. For others not so much. Just depends on your insurance requirements and the WLS clinic you are going to. Lots of tests and preliminary things to do. Hang in there. Ive been waiting since Oct 29, 21 first consult but its gone pretty quick and Ive completed everything that was needed.

Yea thats how it typically goes for out of network. I have had that happen so many times i make a appointment, provide my insurance. But they dont actually verify insurance coverage until a few days before the appointment which is stupid.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      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 .
