on talking to other's about wls? When I say talking to other's I mean bringing it up to them. I'm not talking about strangers on the street who happen to be obese, I'm talking about those you know in a passing sort of way.
I for one, never in a million years thought my insurance, or for that matter any insurance paid for wls until someone told me.
Like many, I of course had heard of wls, but never really knew anything about it.
I would never presume to tell someone that wls was for them. I don't think anyone can do that, it's a decision we make ourselves.
I'm very open when people ask me questions about wls and about the complications I had following the surgery. My PCP has even, after asking me, given out my phone number to people to talk to me about wls.
Anyone have any thoughts?
I know I have the off sided comment by a fellow band Mom to thank for my surgery. Yes, even after the complications I can now say thank. She just mentioned during a conversation that another band Mom had undergone wls a couple of months before. I bombarded that Mom with questions, that was on Aug. 31, 2001, and the rest they say is history.
