Step 1 complete!! Meeting my surgeon this week!!

Hello all,

Just a quick update on the Revision Surgery journey. The surgeon that placed my Lapband doesn't do RNY so I had to transfer to a new clinic and surgeon. I received news yesterday that the new clinic is accepting the transfer. This is great news because they think my insurance will cover otherwise they wouldn't have taken me. YAY!!!! I meet my surgeon this Thursday and then next Monday I meet with the PA and the Dietitian. After that, then I will need to start my counseling through my insurance company which is a pre-requisite before submitting my case to insurance - this is likely to take 10 weeks or so. Things are moving along now. I am soooo looking forward to my revision!!
