I'm super excited---and jealous!  I am just begining this journey and began making my phone calls today.  I also have Cigna--so I was excited to find your posting.  I hope to have the sleeve rather than lap band---but my BMI is only 38 ('only' LOL!).  Can I ask you----what was your BMI?  I'm afraid Cigna will say it has to be lap band because it's not over 40.
