Hello everybody, I am new here. I was first going to have the Gastric Bypass but have since changed my mind (to invasive for me). I have taken all the post ops tests for the bypass. Everything looked good. I do have sleep apnea to a slight degree. I guess this question is for anybody that has went thru Tricare. How long after your referral was put in, did it take for Tricare to approve/disapprove. And if approved how long is the process from first surgeon visit till your banded? Sounds like there is a lot of success stories on here and I would love to be one. Any help in this process would be great. Maggie:rolleyes2:

packmiss, I have all the pre op done because I was going to have the RNY. So hopefully if Tricare approves it, it will go faster. Where did you have your done at and when? Thanks for the info. Maggie:rolleyes2:

Is there going to be someone looking after you two? Because you will be needing some help and if you think you can help each other up off the couch and things.... no no... too painful.

Yes, we will have our parents there to help us. His mother will stay one night, and my mother will stay the next until we're able to move around

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about

        CongratulationsI’m six days post it hasn’t been the easiest but I think I’m definitely saving my life and I swear I cry at least once every two hours but sweetheart you will be fine there’s also a couple things that I would like to make sure that you have before your surgery if that’s OK

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
