  1. Hi, I’m LorettaLynn from Virginia. I began my 6 month process with Dr Nain at the Inova Fair Oaks on 6/6/18. I have completed a psych evaluation, 2 sessions with the nutritionist, consult with exercise guy, etc. I am concerned that my Aetna (Foreign Service Benefit Plan) is not going to pay as my weight is not going down and fluctuates a bit so I am preparing myself to have to pay out of pocket and travel to Mexico if needed. I have given up carbonated beverages since 6/6/18 and have increased my water a lot. I am 5’6 and weighed 277 at my highest in May, wearing a 22W dress. I have high cholesterol, fatty liver and Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, my A1C is prediabetic, and my hormones have been out of balance since at least 2016 with estrogen dominance and PCOS. My beloved father died of liver cancer at 63 and my mother is a Type 1 diabetic. I am hopeful that RNY or DS will help my health turn around and give me the energy that a 40 year old should have. I’m enjoying this forum quite a bit as the folks seem a lot nicer than other forums I’ve looked at.

    How was your experience with Mexicali Bariatric Center? I’m looking at them if my insurance falls apart at the end of my 6 month program.
  4. I have FSBP which is administered by Aetna, which I heard that Aetna does not allow you to gain weight in your 6 month program at all. I am concerned that my weight will fluctuate as it tends to do. I have emailed them for more info and got nothing. If I could lose weight well under my own power, I wouldn’t be in a bariatric program. Does anyone else here have experience with the FSBP?
