Does anyone accept anything their parents do or say when they are 13??? It may not be you. Congrats on the date, Oct 7th is my day too!!! It's my brother's birthday and he has been giving me grief about it (although it's not nearly the same thing)

Hang in there, she'll come around 13 is a horrible age, I remember how nasty I was to my mother.:biggrin:

I am getting so excited just reading stuff on these forums. I hope to be part of this "smashing pumpkin" group!!! Please help me pray that I get approval from the insurance. Friday will be 2 weeks since the info was sent. I have had my psych exam and seen the nutritionist (as required by my surgeon in Statesville, NC).

Now, all there is to do is wait and get a date! I can't wait!!!

Just got the call, 10/7/08 for me. My daughter is devestated because it's a day after her birthday. I told her we can Celebrate it early, and she said its not the same :thumbup:. She'll be 13. Maybe that explains ita all.

9/22 I go to the pre-op class...and 9/23 start the liquid diet.

Nice to see theres a few of us here...

I start my diet on my mom's birthday. She is going to be 59 so I'd say it may not be the age. She seems to be trying to sabotage (sp?) me already. She keeps asking me if I am sure I want to do this. She seems to think this is just like gastric bypass. I have tried to explain it to her, but she is not trying to listen. So I guess I will deal with her cooking and baking pies (she didn't start doing this until I told her I was having surgery). She is really acting like the friends that you lose after losing weight. I don't know if she is just worried about me as her child, or if there is also some jealousy because I will no longer be larger than her. I don't know.

I definately think there is some jealousy going on. Unfortunately not everyone wants to see you thinner and healthier. Oh, well you have to do what is right for you!

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

      2. GradyCat

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
