I have PEIA and am contemplating weight loss surgery. I know they do RNY and lapband, but I've decided to go with RNY because the lapband just isn't for me. Is there anyone else who has PEIA who has recently had RNY? Can you give me any suggestions with how to get approved. IIRC, they want you to diet for a year and lose 10% of your body weight and not have any regain. Is that right? Is there anything I need to know when dealing with them? Any tips, tricks, suggestions? Thanks!
