  1. Has anyone had any experience with this Edmond, OK? Their self-pay sounds really good ($9995).
  2. Hi, Just joined today. Been really enlightened to see what all the folks that have gone through this life-changing procedure. I hope one day I can be able to get the LSG that will free me of my battle with Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Sleep Apnea. I have tried so many things to get into better shape; I feel as I get older, my chances of losing any meaningful weight goes downhill. Unfortunately, my health has progressively been deteriorating as well. My GP and I actually had our first conversation last Friday about Bariatric Surgery. She believes I am a good candidate and with my previous attempts have shown her that I can be very dedicated to maintain the weight loss. However, then I find out that my healthcare insurance does not pay for Bariatric Surgery. I work for a small company and I doubt they will add Bariatric Surgery to their plan. Regardless, I have scheduled a consultation with Dr. John Brebbia with MedStar Health in the Washington, D.C. area on June 20th. Not sure what he may be able to do with regards to my dilemma but I want to see if something can be done. If anyone has gone through the same situation, I would love to know how things played out and if there were any words of advice that can be provided! I'm thinking it may cost around $20K in the DC Metro area for the LSG. I need help and feel so frustrated with my current employer's health plan!
