  1. Pre op weight loss

    Hi. I was just denied my surgery cause I gained 8 lbs during my six month supervised weight loss. I need to lose 2lbs a week for the next three months then resubmit. What would be the best way to achive this? Im thinking of trying the low carb diet again it has worked in the past for me. I had big losses but always gain it back. Thought it wouldn't hurt to start while im working on my appeal. Thanks Rob

    The bariatric center called me to confirm that I was denied. They dont want me to appeal it and said to resubmit it after another six months. Im floored. Feels like im wasting alot of time and money for this.

    I truly do want this bad enuff. I was told all along that things were good and they gave me a tenitive date for surgery. My life isnt easy to work around I got cows milking and family that will help me but the winter is my "down time" and if I get surgery it needs to be in a window that ill be able to recover and get back to work. Thanks for listening

    To be honest with you. I dnt think that I would be able to do that. Ive tried like heck for six months and didnt get anywhere. I might lose some but whats saying the dont deny me again

    I called yesterday morning cause I couldnt wait till I got the letter. The lady that is looking over my case at the insurance company said I need to show steady weight loss for six months. I told her that it was not on the website like that. And she said that it didnt matter. She told me to lose 1 to 2 lbs a week for the next three months and resubmit it with 9 months of data. Not sure what to do......

    I really hope so. Im a dairyfarmer and I kinda had this planned around the seasons and when I could get help in the farm. Just put me in a sour mood Thank you for the kind words.

    Yes I met all the requirements. Only thing is I had a 8lb weight gain over the 6mo diet.

    What are the chances of a appeal working?
  10. Mclaren heath advantage

    The reason will be in the letter. Yes appealing is a option. Not sure yet if thats the option I want to take. Maybe its gods way of saying dont do it
