Even though my insurance implemented a once in a lifetime WLS surgery policy, with the great advise and help for all here at OH, I now have a surgery date.
I was told by the insurance co while trying to revise from a band to a sleeve that they were changing the policy. I would not be allowed to revise to another surgery. Do to 2.5 years of medical issues they would cover the band removal only. I was devastated! With encouragement from all here I fought and was approved due to medical reasons to have a VSG.
On January 22 I will be joining all of you here!
Sorry about the spelling in the subject. Guess I shouldn't post at 3 am while tired.
As the other two have left, Dr Farhan is the only one left. The funny thing is they used to hay one seminar a month with each surgeon doing every third one. Now they are having a seminar every WEEK with Dr Farhan doing them all! It really is like getting the original Surgeon consult for free. He is also a big NON-fan of the Band. Hopefully he talks all out of the band and to the sleeve or other.
