Insurance will pay...good or bad thing!!??!!
Wednesday, December 30, 2009
I have been going back and forth to my primary care doc for a few weeks now. I have tried the diabetic diet and drugs to try and help with my inflammation. The drugs work as long as I take them. The problem is that taking them causes liver and kidney damage if taken for more than 30 days.
Yesterday he told me he is referring me to a bariatric center because he has submitted info to my insurance carrier and based upon his recommendation they will pay for me to have gastric surgery. I don't know if I should be happy the insurance will cover it or angry that he fells I am a lost cause and this is the only way for me.
I have been thinking about the risks and rewards of the surgery and I am scared that the risks are to much for me. I have a toddler now and I don't want to have something go wrong under the knife. But also I know the weight loss journey is a loooonnnngggg one. I don't know what to do. Based upon the info he gsave me I will start the classes in January and surgery should be scheduled in early March.
