So now I wait....

Jul 07, 2010

I have finished all of my preliminary evaluations (psych, nutritionist, EGD, seminar with the surgeon...). I have done everything I need to do to get approval for the surgery except for finish the six-month diet requierd by my insurance company. This is month three, so I am half-way there! But, now that I am through with all of the preliminary stuff I am afraid that the waiting is going to make me crazy! However, the end is in sight. My surgeon suggested that when I have my last diet visit (October 13th), I request a copy of the progress notes and deliver them myself to the advocate at his office so that the paperwork can be sent for insurance approval. He said I should be having surgery in October! I am going to try to be good until then and follow all of my instructions (eating on a schedule, not drinking with meals, etc.). Wish me luck!
