So, I will be going under the knife again on March 10th to have my Lap Band put back to it's 'like-new' condition!
I don't even know what tricks my doctor's office employed to get the insurance company to approve it, but I'm so happy they did!
Now, when I originally discussed this with my PA, she told me it wasn't possible for them to do a port revision with a low-profile port because the only way to get one would be to open a whole Lap Band kit...but I know from lots of blog reading that some of you out there have had port revision from a standard port to a low-profile port for cosmetic reasons, so I KNOW it is possible to get one!
So...being the astute and persistent person I am, I called up Apollo Endosurgery this morning (the company that bought the rights to LB), and asked. Guess what? The low-profile port CAN be ordered separately and only takes two days to arrive. So yeah, I'll be getting one of those. I really did not want to go from having the low-profile port currently to a larger, more protruding port after the revision!
That's a big difference in sizes!
So, now that that's taken care of, I guess I need to mentally prepare to go back on that liquid diet post-surgery phase for a while and not be allowed to exercise hard for a bit.
That will be really very hard for me. Bootcamp has been a huge source of stress relief lately and I'm going to seriously miss it!
