have an appointment for my orientation on the 17th of this month and
then I will meet with my surgeon, Dr. Gould, the following Wednesday.
These are at Froedtert, in Milwaukee, WI, which a friend recommended to
me. I've seen the results of her surgery and she is doing great! I
believe her surgeon was Dr. Wallace.
I have paperwork to fill out and my doctor down here in Beloit, Dr.
Tecarro, is going to help me fill it out on the 16th, as I've made an
appointment with her already. I'll probably have her refer me to a
nutritionist as my friend said that she needed to see one for six months
before the surgeon approved her surgery. The nurse I talked to said at
least three, for Medicare.
My primary insurance is BlueCross BlueShield through Walmart and they
won't cover it(they won't cover anything obesity-related), but Medicare
is my secondary and they said they will cover it.
Anyway, I am very excited for all of this to happen!
