A Little Bit of Buyer's Remorse

by TheRealJen on 02-18-2018 at 05:01 PM
I'm having slight twinge of Buyer's Remorse. I know that it will get better, but the gas from the laproscopic surgery is killing me right now. I'm 48+ hours out of surgery. My heating pad has been my best friend. Previous to VSG, I have had 4 cesarean sections, a lapro hysterectomy, and a lapro gallbladder removal.

Surgery Reschesuled - What A Bummer

Long Time Coming

by TheRealJen on 02-14-2018 at 09:06 AM
So, I've been a longtime lurker, but I finally got my surgery scheduled for next week. I started this process 4.5 years ago. Long story short, my insurance company verified that I had bariatric benefits, I jumped through all the hoops, only to find out the insurance company mis-verified my benefits. The bariatric benefits had been removed from the policy at the previous renewal, which was about 6 months before I did my initial consult. I didn't have the money to layout, so I spent the next years
