Hi. My name is Alicia and I am from New Jersey, USA. I am hoping I will get the gastric sleeve surgery on March 18th, but it may end up taking place on April 1st.
With my insurance if you have a BMI between 35 and 40 with 1 weight-related problem, it will cover the surgery. I have obstructive sleep apnea and a BMI of about 36. I am hoping I get the clearance from all the different doctors I must see and that my insurance does approve the surgery.
I hope to learn from all of you so that I know what to expect before and after the surgery.
