  1. I found the best surgeon and paid cash. It's a HUGE procedure and the pain and discomfort was something i was not prepared for. BUT - - - - so very glad I did it.

    Help me think this through

    so many people come down to line with end of the year. I think that the dietitian appointments can be "adjusted", one visit during each month,; but the approval process and lining up the surgeon, OR, ect ect will be more challenging. Not impossible, but challenging.

    Sleep trouble

    Any advice on my rejection?

    I would continue to work with Cleveland Clinic, closely. Because they will go to bat for you with the insurance to APPROVE you in the end. In the mean time, follow the diet, increase exercise and turn things around. I think you will get the SAME response from any program, because they are all centers of excellence with the same criteria. Waiting a little is not a bad thing.

    911 Where were YOU

    I was driving to get a pedicure and I remember the somberness of the people, no laughter, TV's brought in to watch the news. People crying, schools and stores closing and Life as we knew it suddenly CHANGED. Bless the first responders, comfort to those who lost friends, co-workers and family.

    Frustration

    Medical clearance is needed prior to major surgery for your safety.
  11. You will get a letter with authorization procedure codes.
