Started the Process - Excited!!!!

on 7/7/13 8:15 am - New York, NY

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!

Please consult your surgeon & nutritionist for how to do it their way.  Biggest regret? Not doing this 10 years ago! Every day is better than the day before...and it was a pretty great day!
