My bypass

Recommended Posts

I had gastric bypass in 2000

i was in the 300 lb range for years, got down to 145.  I am 160 now

i need a panniculectomy, I was obese starting at age 8.  My insurance won’t cover and I cannot afford it.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated since the hanging skin impedes most aspects of my life

Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat in that my insurance won't consider a panniculectomy unless it becomes infectious and that hasn't happened and given my age (almost 63) and the fact that I've not had any rashes or the like, I put it to the back of my mind.

Hopefully others may have some suggestions.
