Gastric Bypass Revision

I am wanting to get a revision. Has anyone had luck getting insurance to cover it? I am so disappointed with myself I have gained 75 lbs back.

Coverage for revisions varies a lot. Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card and ask what your plan covers-- that's the only way you'll know for sure.

That said, lots of people have addressed regain of 75lb or more without a revision by going "back to basics." If there's nothing mechanically wrong with your WLS, that would probably be a good first step.

I got approved for revision in only 2 weeks. My surgery is scheduled for Sept. 6, 2019. RNY revision.

Carla B. Do you have any narrative on how things went in September and beyond? Researching similar option. Thanks.
