I have been fighting weight all of my adult life I have been obese for the last 25 years, I have decided to have this surgery because I have a lot of health problems and feel so terrible all the the time I get depressed, my self estimee is so low, sometime I don't want to do anything because I feel like a freak. I have been able to tolorate the weight for a long time but it seems that the older I get the more health problems i have and in the last 10 years its one depression after another. I feel that the surgery will help me have more energy and I won't feel so tired.Carrying the extra baggage for so long has taken a toll on me physically and mentally. I have been told that by my surgeon that I'm a high risk patient because of all my health problems but I have to do this surgery because I don't know which is worst feeling horrible or taking my chances. I know that this surgery is the answer so I will leave in God's hand and my surgeons. I love to dance, laugh and spent time with friend and family. I have two beautiful Lahsa Apso dogs that are just precious.

My insurance has an exclusion policy that went into affect this year and they will not cover the surgery. I have borrowed money aginst our home to have this surgery because even though I'm super obese I can not get an approval, the process of legal battles is too slow and I feel like at thispoint I'm already dying slowly by being so over weight.
Basically AETNA is the supervisor of our policy my employer is self insured and they choose to have a eritten exclusion policy. Not much can be done.
