How do I qualify for weight loss surgery so that insurance will pay for it?
I am a 57 years old with a history of chronic back pain, depression and high blood pressure. I have a family history of diabetes, strokes and osteoarthritis with joint replacements.
My weight is 215 pounds and has been this way for the past 10 years. Physically I do walk, but after doing it I hurt, standing in one place for very long I hurt, and also after sitting I hurt. I do swim for exercise when I can get there which is 30 minutes away.
I eat a good diet and I am not a big eater. My downfall on eating is bread and sweets. So with no children in the house I do not bake. My husband and I eat the same foods and in a year’s time his cholesterol went down 25 points with no drugs except for dietary supplements.
I do believe if the weight is off I could maintain it and I would feel better. What do you think?
