Your information intrigued me. I noticed you had Dr. Champion as your Surgeon. I understand he is truly excellent. However, my insurance doesn't cover the surgery in any way, shape, or form. I noticed that you didn't have insurance at the time of your surgery. May I be brazen and ask how the surgery was paid for if no insurance was involved. According to Dr. Champion's office, the surgery is very expensive. Very. I'm desperately trying to determine a way to have the surgery myself. The Insurance Commissioner's office in the State of Georgia won't help me. I do not have the cash. So I am seeking a solution. I'm wondering what your solution was to not having insurance to cover this life saving procedure. Thanks so much. Trish

Well, it’s official! You’re on the losing side. The trumpets are blaring, the cymbals are crashing and the drums are drumming – all for YOU! I hope that all went well for you! You’ve been out of surgery now almost 2 months – YIPPIE!!! Your journey will have moments to “pause” – I’d like to impart some words of wisdom for when it does occur - remember these wise words whispered by Confucius – “It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” Be patient. You didn’t put it on over night, it won’t come off over night (DARN IT!)… RNY 10/31/03 – down 82 pounds!!! Good luck!
