Well, I went to the surgeon today with my husband as my support. We went over everything and the paperwork is being faxed to insurance on Monday!!!! They told me that they have good results with my insurance and usually hear something within 72 hrs, so they expect to know something by the end of next week. They will then schedule my surgery. Looks like I will be a November Bandster!!! They told me I am to start the low carb diet on Monday so I will be ready. Also, I found out that I get to go straight to mushies after surgery. Yeah............so, hmmm, what shall I eat for Thanksgiving.
