I've heard the following helps - document your rashes with photos and dr visits. Does your insurance require that your belly hang down a specific length? If you don't know, find out. The woman who ran the offline support group I was in when I was newly post off had a panniculectomy covered by insurance and she suggested anyone who is interested to keep documenting and appealing. Good Luck!
