    ...pray for me. The psychologist feels that there is a possibility I might not get approved for the surgery due to the fact that I'm sometimes psychotic. Meaning sometimes I hear voices that are not real (Hallucinations ). Last episode was in march but...sigh! I feel like I have a great and supportive team of psychiatric health. The surgery is said to possibly make me hallucinate more or some such (exacerbate the symptoms ). I have confidence my mental health team knows their job but, the surgeon doesn't know them. I'm totally worried. I have so many physical health issues that definitely qualifies me. Now I have this hangin over my head. Thanks in advance for your support.

    Hi. I see the psychologist tomorrow after he has had a long conversation with my psychiatrist. Sigh. I got my fingers and toes crossed. I really am more than ever determined but sometimes I feel hopeless waiting on others to make the final decision. This is pretty much all that's standing in my way of having the surgery. All of my doctors (primary, cardiologist, pulmonary doc and psychiatrist ) are all behind me. I need a cyber hug and a reassurance that tomorrow bears good news.

    Thanks. Welp, the psychologist says everyone deserves a chance to be healthy so I think he has my back. The surgeon has to weigh the risks and whatnot from his standpoint. We wait.

    Hi, im 14 and i had the surgery about 2 weeks ago, i was 167 and had really no commodities that made me stand out to the insurance. The doctor even said he didnt think they would approve me, But me and my mom prayed together for months before the surgery and i got approved! I will pray for you and hope everytging goes well!

    Good news so far. I got the approval of the surgeon. They just want me to see a psychologist knowledgeable about the effects of the surgery. Now for the insurance to answer. Hopefully I won't have to wait too long. But, I'll do it. Thanks for all your prayers and we'll wishes. They paid off.
