I'm going for my very first seminar tomorrow at Magee Women's Hospital in Pittsburgh PA -- this is my first OFFICIAL step to WLS and I'm excited and nervous.

Wish me luck.

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.

Good luck and take someone with you. It helps to have them hear what you missed. DH went with me and was against it at first, but after the seminar he felt much more at ease. (especially since my surgeon was the same guy that took out my gallbladder and there were no problems from that).

Good luck. Like Jeanne said, if you can take someone with you. I wasn't allowed to bring anyone to our seminar and I have always felt, because of that, that my husband was slightly out of the loop.

Just take each step, each phase, one at a time. Focus on what you need to do NOW and don't get overwhelmed by all that's required.

Check back and let us know how it went and what you thought.

Good luck on your first step. Education and Knowledge about this surgery is the key to success. The more you research and inform yourself the better off you will be. No suprises that way. Take notes and ask alot of questions. Let us know how you make out. All the best.
