I am a nurse and am having revision from sleeve to bypass on Oct 17. I took 4 weeks off with the sleeve. The bypass is a bit more involved, plus I am having my gall bladder removed at the same time. I was just wondering how long you all took off and

i am "patiently" awaiting insurance approval. My dr submitted last Tuesday. Part of me wants to call the insurance and ask the status. What do you guys think? Call or leave well enough alone?


Wendi74 posted a discussion topic 1 month ago

How long did it take your insurance to give a decision after submission? Specifically Aetna PPO. My surgeon submitted on Tuesday. Waiting nervously!


Wendi74 posted a discussion topic 2 months, 1 week ago

Saw my surgeon today and he wants me to get an upper GI which I knew he would. Problem is he may not want to do a revision yet. I also have gall stones and he wants to remove the gall bladder and thinks that might help with the GERD. My thing is that

Did anyone have the original surgery with one insurance and the revision with a different insurance? Were there any problems or delays due to this?


Wendi74 posted a discussion topic 3 months ago

I have an appointment to meet with my dr this week. I am going to ask about revision. Surgery due to GERD. How long is the process generally? What was the recovery? How long after the original sleeve surgery was the revision?

Congratulations on your VSG surgery just a few days ago. I hope your recovery is going great and you're feeling better each day. All the best to you on your WLS journey.

I had my VSG on the 14th. I am feelin a little closer to normal today. The first night the nausea was horrible. I was told I was lucky because I did not actually vomit. I cannot even imagine how horrible that is. Actually took a shower this mornin
