Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

We're talking about the internal ones, right? My husband said they are surgical grade steel and are the best, no rust, no worries.

Current surgical clips (for decades now) are surgical steel or titanium. They don't corrode.

Suppose they did use rusting clips...your parts would have sutured themselves together by then. The human body does not like having loose ends...it is pretty efficient in the way it "sews" itself back together naturally.

What judijo says is correct.
Your internal staples will always take a bow in your future radiological studies.

Hi, JeanJeannie.

I don't know the answer to your question, but you have reminded me of another regarding my current scoliosis, which I will post in another subject. Thanks!
