Welcome!

Can your doctor refer you to a bariatric surgeon, or can you look up your local bariatric surgeons and make an appointment?

I had to completely cut out rice, bread, potatoes, platano, sweets, sugars. Super hard being Latina , but I've lost over 25 lbs and have never felt better. I bought a nutribullet and that's how I drinks tons of fruits and veggies. Good luck

I would see if there are any weight loss centers and attend a seminar. You get a lot done there. They work with you on finding out whether insurance covers, and then on what the insurance requires if they do cover. I had to have four months of a doctor signing off that I was dieting, and had to attend a psychiatrists screening and see the nutritionists as well as attend two classes before I got my surgery date (which is this Wednesday, April 23rd!). You get the best results from gastric bypass, from what I'm told.
