    Well, sometimes doctors see that there's a risk in doing the surgery and will deny you because they don't want to have a complication in their stats, it would make them look bad.
    If your EKG is fine, lung Xray etc. may be your BMI is really high and they are worried?
    There's many doctors out there. And it's best to pick a place with an ICU.
    Don't get discouraged so early in the process. When I see that doctor in the show 600lb who does surgeries on very morbidly obese patients, I think you only need to find the right doctor for you. It might cost a little more but your health is worth it!! Hang in there!

    I hope you will get approved very soon! Making the decision is hard, it took me months to decide, but once I was sure I never looked back. For my health, and because I have several conditions directly linked to obesity, I knew it was the only way to stay alive. It is a journey, and my first month was not easy, but it's all worth it! Please keep us posted as soon as you get news! good luck and take care!

    Fingers crossed that everything goes well and your surgery gets approved. I know that a lot of people use Dr. Almanza and have great results.

    Hi MommaDuck, I love Port Townsend, I live in Vancouver Wa. Sometime down the road it would be fun to meet somewhere. I'm excited for you and Pray you get a date soon. I Hope The weightloss Agents are doing a better job communicating with you. I either text message them or called at least once a week until I got the ok to schedule. I remember how long it was and seemed until I got the ok. The Agents did a great job listening and keeping in touch with me as well as educating me on the entire process, what to pack. They were quick to always respond or send me a message to see how I was doing and make sure I understood everything about preparing for the surgery, understood the surgery and what was required after surgery.
    Once your scheduled or anytime you have questions feel free to call me on my cell at (360) 601-7351 my name is Tamera Anderson. Please let me know when your surgery is. Thanks for your message. In the past two days I'm down another 2.5 pounds and can wear my wedding rings again. So exciting when you blow through a goal. I've lost 63lbs since my highest at 288. I've lost 40lbs since surgery on 1-24-17 weighed 225 this morning. All I want to do is dance, lol Good Luck with your journey. Take Care

    Hi MommaDuck,
    I am sincerely glad that you're going through with the surgery! I've struggled with the decision, too, and continue to struggle. My advice right now is to avoid any threads that talk about personal ordeals with surgery. It will scare the poop out of you, or at least it does to me. I had to take an anxiety pill after one comment. I've been through bad surgeries and I just need to stay positive - as do you.

    We're going to have better health soon! By this time next year, we'll both will be happier and healthier, sharing stats, stories, and laughing at our old fears. That's what I'm focusing on, where will I be in 1 year.

    Your doggies sound so sweet. I had an English mastiff, rotty (huge), Great Dane, and a wolf-hybrid. Now, I have a neighborhood cat that adopted me. My spouse and I kept our eyes on her and after her last cat fight, and when we realized she didn't have any front claws, in she came - straight into my chair, bed, computer table, etc. She's like a dog and seeks affection. I will always want to have big dogs or any dogs but right now, she's enough. Thanks for mentioning your dogs, it got my mind off of the comment that threw me into an anxiety attack.

    Looking forward to talking with you and sharing our journeys. I hope you feel the same. All the best.
