  1. I met my deductible with Aetna PPO, but the 20% that I have to pay is still high. I have to pay the hospital $4600. and the doctor $1500. and his assistant $400. This is all out of pocket. It might not sound like much for some people, but it is for us. I applied for CareCredit and they gave me a $17000. limit. I called to see if the hospital and my doctor excepted it and they don't. My husband had surgery at the same hospital 5 years ago, and they excepted it then. That's why I didn't ask before I applied. We have a credit card, but that is a last resort. Because the interest rate is so high. If anyone has any financing idea's, please let me know. Thanks

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and advice. I see a lot of success on here that's very encouraging. I have to get down 9 lbs to get to where I was at the beginning of the 6 months. It's not easy, but I have to do it by my surgery date 6/9.

    Hi, I'm new here and I'm starting this journey with a positive attitude. . I've gone through my 6 month classes and I'm really grateful for everything that I've learned. It has definitely helped me prepare for my upcoming surgery. I'm having VSG on July 9th. On one hand I'm a little nervous, on the other hand I"m excited to get the weight off and start living life to the fullest. I know there is a lot of info here, but I was hoping to maybe hear from some of you who have just had your surgery, and how you are doing. Thank you,
