Our support group wasn't well attended last night but we were able to help a fellow out that was 3 months post-op. I think he has way too many doctors and dietitians, so he's not sure who to listen to. Of course, we patients chimed in to confuse him even more.
He's a LW but had several comorbidities going in to his DS surgery. Now his insurance company wants to deny his labs and "see" results of his diabetes treatment, etc. lol He doesn't have diabetes any longer not because the treatments the insurance company agrees to pay for were working at all.... Anyway, his PCP took our surgeon's lab script and copied it over under her name so they would be covered by insurance for his treatment of diabetes. What a nut roll!
Anyway, the dietitian is looking for ideas to serve as topics for future support group meetings. Any ideas? I think she decided to have a protein shake tasting next month but we're not coming up with a lot of new ideas and need some help. Thanks.
