Started the Process - Excited!!!!
I am so excIited! I have started the process to getting the surgery. I went for my infitial visit to see Dr. Bagloo (in NYC). She was so great and so informative (even though I did my research before hand). Of course, I'm going to have to go through the 6 months process because of my insurance. But that is ok. I don't have to deal with my insurance, Dr. Bagloo's office will deal with them. That is a relief off of my shoulders. I have an appointment for my endoscopy exam on July 31st. I go to do my labs next weekend. I am on a roll. I have already done my sleep study. So, hopefully the process will go smooth.
Congrats on starting. I have a stress test on Tuesday then mine gets submitted to the insurance. Just a suggestion, check with your insurance if your BMI is over 50, they may waive the 6 month medically supervised weight loss program. Mine does. Would also be in your best interest to ask them what their requirements are exactly. Good Luck!
