Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..
I found the insurance company approved my.
Pretty fast. I would recommend to start cutting back on Medifast food right now, it will make recovery alot easier...
My Ins Co approved me so fast. My paperwork was submitted on Wednesday afternoon, and on Friday morning I was approved. I don't know why it was so fast, I'm just thankful it was..
Thanks for the responses. I'm hoping for a quick and easy yes. What would you suggest to absolutely make sure I had on hand for those first few weeks post op?..
Sugar free popsicles, sf jello, low sodium chicken broth, I used decaf tea. Within a week it was yogurt, low fat cottage cheese. Trust me, most of us don't even think of eating...
Welcome to the group =) I self paid for my.
So I didn't have to wait on insurance approvals. I feel awful for those that do, it seems like such a stressful roller coaster to be on when the decision to do it in the first place is emotional enough. I tell you what though, I went crazy enough before my.
Without the help of insurance companies, and from what I hear, many others go through a similar thing. If I could go back and hold my own hand through the pre-op process, I would tell myself not to worry and to be as prepared for post-op life as much as possible..
I think one of the best things you can do to prepare yourself is find a protein powder that you LIKE. You don't wanna go through the trial and error process when you are in serious need of protein (like my situation now). Find some post-op mushy recipes that you will like and if you are like me, having a variety to chose from so you don't go crazy if you see another pudding or jello cup..
Another thing that wouldn't hurt is to start getting your vitamin schedule down. You will most likely have to take a multivitamin (or 2) a day and around 1500 mg of.
A day. Find a.
That you like cause you will be eating it alot. I cannot stand chalky vitamins so I go for the chews..
Keep in mind everybody's body is different so you will have to go through some trial and error after your.
According to what you can tolerate, and the more options you give yourself, the less stressed you will be..
This helps and good luck!..
Those are great ideas. I wouldnt have thought to taste test things...
I'm waiting on my insurance approval as well. In the meantime, I've been keeping myself busy with exercising and getting things ready in hopes of being approved. You could clean out all your kitchen cabinets of all the bad things you won't be able to eat after the.
I've already cleaned out the cabinets and fridge. Explained to the kids there isnt going to be room on the shopping list for snack stuff. If they want it they need to go get it, buy it, and consume it themselves elsewhere. I've also gone through my closet and gotten rid of some things I absolutely hate. Shirts that, when I look at them, make me angry and sad at the state ive allowed myself to become. I do have my favorite jeans and sweater that will become my before reminders..
I have been scanning the internet looking at "fashion". I'm looking at different styles and colors and I'm excited to be able to play dress up lol. I.
You are approved as well!!!! and QUICKLY!..
Make sure you get some comfy clothes I made my husband go and by me a comfy sweat suit, not any cheap thing but I wanted comfy and lol went along to test the comfiness of it, lol.
I had to wait what seemed like forever but was actually 2 weeks for my insurance to approve, and it was really easy to get down and out waiting at one point I almost binged because I thought well cant say what I thougth but heck with it, I may never get approved (i had issues getting my records doctors closing and what not) and I was a week before my.
Was scheduled so doing the pre diet, it's really funny I think God knew I couldnt wait anymore and I got the call within minutes of my saying I was just gonna go blow it. Stay strong and just be excited for me this has been a wonderful experience 13 days post op....
