After insurance approves, how long before you had the surgery?

I know every surgeon's office is different but I am just curious as to about how long it usually takes to be able to have the surgery once you are approved for it.
Insurance is different for everyone. My insurance required 6 dietician appointments in 6months, before surgery could be scheduled. Others only had 3-4 dietician appointments before surgery. After my 6 months the surgeon scheduled me 2 months out.

Yes, my insurance does cover weight loss surgery!
I did 6 months of supervised visits and ad a few denials, but I sent appeals and start to fini****hink it was about 9 months? but after submitting paperwork, THAT was complete maybe 1.5 monts to schedule? It was a while back so I am doing my best to recall
