Good news on a Monday!

I have told y'all that I am trying to get a tummy tuck. Well I got the news today.... My insurance approved!!!! Of course they will only pay for the skin removal portion, the OR, and the anesthesiologist...but that is a good chunk of change. I will have to pay for the muscle tightening and belly button myself (insurance doesn't see any "medical necessity" in a belly button).

The surgery date will be confirmed tomorrow. The plan is March 19th. Oh Emmm Geee....that is only two weeks away. I will only take 4 days off of work because we are on spring break the following week. I still have my student teacher until next week, so that gives me time to get sub plans together and have a couple of IEP meetings that I need to knock out so I don't have to worry about them later.

I honestly have no idea if I am supposed to get an unfill before surgery. I guess I need to check on that ASAP.

I hope everyone else had a great Monday too!

Great news! Good for you and good luck! I am having surgery next Friday. They haven't really said anything about prep so I am not sure if they are unfilling me or not.

Congratulations...I'm having my first round of plastics on Monday, the 11th. I talked to the PA at my surgeon's office and she said that it was up to me as to whether or not I have an unfill but either way I need to expect to be on liquids for 3-4 days post-op because anesthesia will make the band tighten up. I decided against an unfill - I'm not very tight anyway and I've just loaded up on protein shakes for the week after...

Wow, insurance approval! That's awesome--and I bet somewhat unusual. I'm excited for you.

How awesome!! One of my friends (mother of 3, not a bandster) had a tummy tuck, and I just saw the end result (avec new faux belly button). It looks AMAZING. She is thrilled with it, and I'm sure you will be too!

Terrie said...

Congrats!! That is such exciting news. I need your insurance.

Oh, please don't have the belly button done, you could really freak some people out and have some fun with that, lol
