My 6 months starts today!

9 posts in this topic

My insurance requires a 6 month period of monitored weight loss before surgery and a referral to see a bariatric specialist.  Today, both of those things happened.  My pre op process has officially started!  Is anyone else here beginning their weight loss journey? :)

I just got off the phone with my insurance company to verify that they received the pre- auth for surgery. I thought for sure they wouldn't have it yet, and they got it on the 17th! It's already been a week! I'm so excited and very nervous!  Now I just have to try and be patient, they said turn around time is 2-3 weeks and it's pretty busy since it's the beginning of the year.

I'm almost at the end of month 3 of my 6 months. It's been going by really fast. Hope it goes by fast for you too.

I started my 3 month supervised weight loss program required by my insurance company on Jan 16th :) I'm aiming for surgery in May.

Congratulations! It does go by quickly, just keep up the good work and don't get too hard on yourself if you aren't perfect. Just keep on going and reach out if you need support.

Today was my last weight loss visit and when people tell you it flies by, they mean it! I did blood work this afternoon and now I'm just waiting to find out what the next step is...
