- HEALTH TRACKER
I was wondering the same thing! I've heard so many different stories I'm not sure where to start. I have Ameri-group now and I'm hoping I don't have to start over.
I am in the New Orleans area and very interested in having WLS. I am new to this process and not familiar with medicaid approval or surgeons in Louisiana. If anyone can help me get started I would realy appreciate it. I need this hope.
I am a candidate for the gastric vertical sleeve procedure and am Medicaid recipient. I started my process with Tulane and due to personal/family reasons had to stop. I resumed the process in 02/2013 through Ochsner then in May 2013 Ochsner decided not to renew their LaCare contract. I am now stagnant in my process due to the insurance change and am currently awaiting to either get switched from my current plan to another Medicaid plan that Ochsner does accept OR have Ochsner submit an out of network request to Medicaid so that i can move forward and get my surgery scheduled. This has been a nightmare and I have looked up options to help pay for the surgery, but haven't had ANY success. If anyone knows of anything to help me, please help! Thanks!!!
I am a WLS vet, goal for over 5 years. I am looking for a Shreveport person that I can pay to do a job for me.
I loaned a person $2K about 5 years ago, to date she has not paid me back. I want to sign a power of attorney form to someone local to Shreveport who is willing to file a claim in Small Claims Court and collect my debt. It will be an easy case, I have proof of the loan via cancelled checks, and she is a police officer so she will be easy to serve. Amazingly, she works in Internal Affairs of the Shreveport Police Dept. Since she is a police officer it will also be easy to collect, garnishing her paychecks.
I will pay 50% of anything you collect. That should be $1,000 plus expenses.
Well atleast U got it done...I been going back and forth with it bc I Just didnt think I coukd get it....Seems too good to b, ya kno....But i say I have to atleast Try.
How much have You lost since U got it?
Was it hard recovering?
I don't know if this has been asked or addressed or Not but Im wondering has Anyone gotten pregnant soon after Surgery or After surgery period and Are their any Difficulties ???
Also is there a certain amount of time Your Drs' suggested you wait or you guys think a person should wait to get pregnant after VSG surgery.
