Awaiting Surgery Date

  1. 2sexii4misize
    Hello, I've finished all my insurance requirements and the coordinator has requested approval from insurance company, United Health, for anticipated surgery date of February 20th. I sure hope it's approved. She said I should hear something in 15 days (5 days ago). If it is approved, I'll begin my pre-op diet on Feb 6th. I'm super excited and nervous at the same time! I've been on here reading others' success stories and life after and just hoping that I will be ok too. Anyway, I'm glad to see at least one other person who will be having surgery in Shreveport, LA with Dr. Merriman. Good Luck!

    Hey, Congrats on your surgery date. Sorry I hadn't logged in to post yet. I pray that all went well for you on the 10th. Let me know how it went whenever you feel up to it.
    I got a phone call today from my insurance company - I've been approved!!! YAY me! I'm super excited. The rep told me to call my doctor's office for my next steps. I know I still have to get an EGD and the EMMI online course.

    Yes, my surgery date is 3/9/12, next Friday...I'm still struggling with the 2-wk liquid diet, although it's been 7 days today. So, i'm excited about that. I just keep thinking i don't have long to go now. I've gotten all my pre-op stuff out of the way so I won't have to do anything else Friday morning. I'm glad all went well with you. i wish you must continued success!!!
