I received news that my information was submitted to insurance on October 20th, which as of today, makes 4 business days. The insurance average is 7-10 business days for their turn-around, which of course could be sooner, as they always want to give the longest time frame to cover all deviations. I am expecting the 10 day scenario, but hopeful that it is less.
There is a girl at work that is about a month behind me in this process. She has had to attend the 6 month pre-op diet classes (where I didn't have to) but she was told the doctor schedules 2 weeks out. With all things being equal and going by that schedule, I could be looking at my surgery the week before Thanksgiving!
I almost don't know what to think or feel about everything. I have been running on a lot of "let's get this done" energy and not very much focus on the reality of it actually happening, I think I need to find a way to get in tune with the emotions and feelings that led up to this decision to begin with. I think I will spend some time re-reading my previous posts and reminding myself of the whys.
