Finally Ins gave approval

  1. joanaheter
    I am so excited today I heard from my Dr's office the ins gave the approval. Now I am waiting to hear back from the Dr office to schedule my surgery. I have been getting bummed lately, not hearing anything. I started my journey on Feb 15, 2013, I know it doesn't sound like a long time, but for me it has seemed like a long time. I had to do 3 months of weight management, pych eval, upper and lower gi, blood work. I wish I could jump up and down, that is how much excitment I have in me right now. I don't have many people to talk to right now. I am trying to keep it hush until I have to say anything, especially at work. Thank you all for listening...

    That is very exciting!!!! I completely understand about wanting to keep it hush. This forum was a huge outlet for me at the time before my surgery and within the first few months when I wasn't telling anyone. Now that I am over a year post op and have reached my goal, I tell anyone who wants to know what an incredible journey this has been. Glad to hear things are working out for you! You'll be a year post op before you know it!

    I understand about keeping it hush. I was very selective about who to say anything to prior to surgery. It seems some people (especially those who've never had a real weight problem) just don't "get it". I'm excited for you. I'm only 3 weeks post op and I am thrilled with the results so far. I think you will be too. When you see those scales drop quickly for the first 3 weeks, you will really feel the excitement about what the next year is going to bring.

    Yay! Congratulations! You can talk to us as much as you want - we'll listen and when you're ready, you'll find someone at work that you feel comfortable with to talk to. Do you have your date yet?
