I wouls keep going.
Ask them the grounds on which they turned you down.
I got exceptional funding. I’d looked at the published criteria and built up a history of all the hoop jumping parts ahead of asking.My BMI was one below the level I’d automatically qualify for surgery but I’d started from a point where I would have qualified but due to diabetes and Insulin,could get no further and I also had been on Orlistat for the maximum time recommended,so had to stop that,too.

It might be worth getting the medics to ‘cost out’ the various traetments you have to build up a picture of how much potential saving there could be if the co-morbidities would be solved or minimised. It might then be more cost effective in terms of the expenditure against the long term reductions.
Try to think of it from as many angles as you can. Under the Freedom of Information act,you can ask them for figures of the number of patients with similar co-morbidities who were given funding,too. This might give you a clearer picture of what you’re up against. xx
