Thumbs up Holy smokes!!!!

I am totally shocked!! In less than a week, my insurance approved me for WLS!! I got the call this afternoon and my physical is scheduled for next Wednesday!!



I went to my first seminar last Tuesday and from there I was expecting it to be about 2 or 3 weeks. And then I thought for sure my insurance was going to give me grief. I never in a million years expected things to go so smoothly. Let's just hope it continues that way!!

Hey hubs, is that you??

From what I learned at the first seminar, I will have to have the psych eval and I will also need to have a sleep study done and see a chardiologist. The clinic I am going through only does the RNY. They said they hope to start doing the lapband next year.

I am totally ready for this Indy!! Mainly I am just shocked it was so fast. But the sooner the better, right?? I have to wonder if my BMI has anything to do with the quickness of everything. Has any of you ever heard of anything like that?
When they were giving the requirements for certain BMI's, they said that a person in a certain range was automatically approved. I am assuming that means that since I am well above that range, the co-morbidities aren't a huge concern. I will get the surgey no matter what. Oh heck, I don't know. I will have more info after next wednesday.
I can't wait!!!!!!
