Jul 02, 2011Hello, My name is Peg. I just found out Friday that I have been pre-approved by the insurance company which for me is Blue Cross/Blue Shield in NE. I started late last year and it has been a process.
The thing that pushed me over was having double mastectomies and as I am heavy they do not really even show up. I was a full figured woman before. The surgeon told me that if I lose weight they will magically appear. I am not sure about the magic part I just want to find them again. I feel like I am playing where is waldo...lol.
So, that is how I got here. I will see the surgeon on July 20, 2011 to set a date for the surgery. It will be a few weeks out. I realized that I have been in a hurry up and wait mode and now I don't have a lot of time before it will actually happen. I am really excited. I have fears but I have more fears of what will happen if I do not do anything.
I have been depressed since the mastectomies and am finally coming out of that fog but am more afraid that I will continue to gain weight. I am starting to have issues with my knees etc. and a year ago started using a sleep apnea machine. I am excited and want to do what it takes to not live like this anymore.
