  1. Hello

    OK thats great. I am really looking forward to having increased energy. It seems like I just always want to sleep and I feel so tired all of the time. I don't even want to come out of house. My journey is just beginning and my surgeon said that I probably won't be having surgery until December of January.
  2. Does anyone have 1199 insurance?

    Hello good day I hope that everyone is doing well. My name is Samantha, I'm 28 years old and I had my first consultation with the surgeon yesterday. His office set me up for my first visit with the nutritionist in 2 weeks. I was previously seeing a nutritionist but he said that I will have to start over with a nutritionist through his office. He also stated that I will have to see the nutritionist consecutively for 6 months before submitting for approval. I called my insurance provider just to make sure that the procedure is covered because in the benefits booklet that I received from them it states that it is not. The representative that I spoke to said that it is in fact covered and she listed what they required. But for the supervised diet history she said that they only require 3 months within the last 6 months, so I am a bit confused. Is there anyone who has 1199 insurance that can tell me what they went through ? I was wondering if maybe that 6 month period was just his requirement. Thank you

  14. Hello

    Hello everyone I am new here, just joined a few minutes ago actually. My name is Samantha, I'm 28 years, 5 ft 8 in and I weigh 320 lbs. For as far back as I can remember I have been overweight and I have now come to the point where I have decided that I am going to have weight loss surgery. I have tried many different diet plans in the past to lose weight and then I would end up gaining again. Last year was the best that I have ever done at losing weight, I lost about 60 lbs and I was able to get down to 275 but unfortunately I have gained most of the weight back. And even with my best efforts I am now stuck at 320lbs. I have been doing lots of research on the internet and reading books and I have decided that I want to have the sleeve gastrectomy done. I am still in the early stages of my journey but I would love to get more information from people who have gone through or are going through this journey because I don't know of anyone personally who I can speak to. Thank you very much.
