SO back in March I was denied band removal , well my surgeon did a peer to peer review and got the removal approved, however insurance would not approve the bypass due to me not having my 6month medically supervised weight loss completed. My PCP was able to go go back as far as Nov. 2017 and I am happy to say Fri was my 7th monthly visit. I faxed my papers to my Surgeons office and they were going to submit it today . Fingers crossed this will be the end of this band hell , and the beginning to a new lifestyle .

Hey Kimiam, how did this turn out? Did you have to delay it for other reasons? Stuff happens...

I know this is an emotional time for you Kim but you will be so glad to get rid of that band.

Don't forget to update your stats with your surgery date.
