I am 32 and been married for 12 years. i have two kids 9 and 6. i gained alot of weight after i had my kids. i have high blood pressure, highpertention and throde condition.
My BMI was 40 at the time i applied for DS. i had hard time getting approval and they send the letter to my family doctor saying that DS is only good for people with BMI of 50 or 60. My doctor sent letter and OHIP denied me for DS. I applied again with new letter from my doctor and also i wrote letter saying that i know people who were approved with similer BMI as mine. OHIP denied my again. i went to my MPP office and explain them everything but they couldn't help me as well. so i was fed up by then and i applied for RNY and got approval in two days for RNY. BUT deep down i knew thats not the surgery i want. so again i wanted to try for DS. i wrote an appeal letter and took it to my family doctor he signed it and i mail it to OHIP.I belive i sent it to two places one in toronto and one in winsdor. and a week latter i got call from julie saying that i got approved for DS. OH GOD i was so happy. it took me 4 months to get approval but it was so worth the wait. i had sugery on august 6th and i am only 35lb away from goal. i feel great. DS is the best. if this is the surgery you want, don't give up. OHIP will approve it at the end.
