    I had been thinking about weight loss surgery for close to a decade. Currently 38 and have been cycling between 250 and 300 for close to a decade. I have PCOS and keep gaining and losing the same 50 pounds repeatedly.

    I met withe surgeon yesterday for the first time and while I don't have a date yet the surgeon said my insurance is an easier one to get approved and doesn't require a supervised diet so he expect me to have surgery in around 3 months.\

    That’s great news! I’m new also. I went for my consult on Jan 30th and they told me the same. Around 3 months bc my insurance doesn’t require much. Keep us updated.
