  1. For anyone that has had any of the WLS done, and have been to a plastic surgeon, did anyone have the skin lifts covered by their insurance??? If so, how did you go about getting them to cover it. I have heard stories of this but have never met anyone that has their company cover it.

  3. hey yall so I'm new here, had surgery 2/11/2010 weighing 335 lbs, my goal weight was 180 and have reached it beyond all my beliefs. I now weigh 172 lbs and have the job of my dreams being a firefighter. Currently reside in Louisiana and am 24 years old.
  4. If you consider losing weight to follow your dream job as a kid to be a cool job then yes. I truly believe I have the greatest job in the world. I wouldn't change it for anything or anyone. I work full and part time as a firefighter and my life couldn't be any better. Losing all of my weight has brought many changes in my attitude towards life and the people around me. I believe it has helped me reach one of the goals that I had dreamt about since I was a kid and for the past 2 years, I have enjoyed everyday of my life and the job I have. I congratulate you all on yalls success as post-op patients and everyone who has fulfilled a dream they have always had. TJ
