FINALLY !!! Some good news this could actually happen !

Just got home from my doctors appt. Really loved the doc, he was very nice and very caring . He sat down and went over everything with me . Told me that he would submit the removal AND Revision for approval for insurance ASAP that the revision is just as important as the removal to him .. He told me to Be prepared I MAY wake up with out a sleeve( the weight loss surgery part ) IF My stomach is in too bad of shape or is not healthy enough to tolerate both procedures .. He said do not worry if that happens in 3-6 months he WILL do the revision ! He said he was very sorry no one found this important enough to them to fight for it and he would fight " tooth and nail" to get this approved no matter what ! Once approved i have to see a nutritionist he told me to prepare to take vitamins for the rest of my life .. mainly because i have been mal nourished ( Yes its possible to be malnourished and fat LOL ) for the past several years because of not being able to eat anything . I also have to do an EKG and Blood work , but that's it. He was going to request a rush approval .. SO HOPEFULLY I can get this done before the end of the year still !


  1. I'm glad to hear that he is helping to move this.

  2. Me too MB !! Me too ! Im not getting my hopes up TOO High yet, Insurances can do what ever they darn well please ! So until i get an approval i wont get too excited !
