    I have done all my requirements for the gastric bypass. I have been cleared from dietitians , physcologist, nutritionist, did my six month diet with family doctor.
    My question is ,how long does it normally take Medicare to clear you for surgery. I have been waiting almpst three weeks and I got an email saying it would be soon. But, I am just curious.
