The Waiting Game
Aug 28, 2013
Well, here it is nearing September and I thought I would be looking forward to surgery in September or October. Instead, I am off to meet a new surgeon Sept. 20th. I had initially started my journey July 18th with the seminar, followed by the consultation July 25th. I completed the psych, fitness and nutrition evals required by my insurance only to have to start over, somewhat. My husbands new job's insurance will cover the surgery 100%, where mine only covers 80% and I had a 2200.00 out of pocket cost. So, It's pretty much a no brainer to go with the 100% coverage (after researching the clinic/staff/surgeon) and a reputable clinic. The cons: instead of being in the city I live, the clinic is about 50 miles away. Not bad, and my bestie lives there so we can have girl days when I need to travel there. Also, I think I am going to have to do a 6 month doctor monitored diet. I am going to try like mad to see if the Weight Watcher documentation and doctor visits' notes will pass. But this will push me out to March, at the earliest. I am really bummed about it....I have been researching, interviewing, you tube vlog watching, for a couple years and am beyond ready. I have quit smoking (a year in October) and on my third week with no soda or any carbonation.
But, whatever will be, will be....right? I just need to focus on continuing to kick butt in the gym-build that muscle! As well, as adopting more and more healthy habits.
Peace and Love!
