VSG to DS? Anyone had this done?
I have BCBS Federal, too. It is great to know that the procedure is covered. I lost 114 lbs with the VSG. I still needed to lose 30. I have gained 25 back. I have 55 lbs to lose. What are the pros and cons of the DS that you can tell me about?

Also, I don't know what my surgeon's insurance coordinator did, but she managed to get me approved without my having to jump through the required "hoops". Namely, the use of a dietician for 3 months in the year preceding the request for surgery. She is a miracle worker and tenacious!!
Best of luck to you.
I'm a 2-part DS'er. My insurance did pay for the second half, yes.
Not sure how much you have to lose but please keep in mind the severity of the surgery the DS is. It's no joke. If you're looking into it to get off 20-30 pounds, please go another route.
