That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
I go March 8th @ 5:00 a.m..
I to have written my letters and wrote everthing done just in case..
Can't wait to hear from your after.
I'll be praying for you..
Its great to be prepired, but I think you might be changing the letters you have written to WOW messages before you know it....
Your amoungst proffesionals who have probably dealt with every scenario imaginable..
Your in safe hands, before, during and after..
Prepare for a slow recovery and to take your time comming to terms with the begining of a wonderful new life..
Wish you well..

As for you being scared, I think that if you weren't at least a little scared, that I would worry. Keep a positive outlook on the experience, but know that if you need any support or advice, that we are all here for you!.
Thank you so much Erin, Im so grateful for your kind words and support, I dont know what I would do without having everyone on the forum to turn too for advice, will let you know how I get on soon as I can.

You have to be able to trust your doctor. Has he done a lot of surgeries. How many patients has he lost, if any. Is he center of excellence certified. If you have a skilled experienced surgeon, just relax and trust him..
I have congestive heart failure and a bunch of co-morbidities, plus my weight at start was over 400 lbs. and with all this going against me I still came out fine. You will too. Just relax and think about how life is going to change for you. All the things you are going to do that you can't do now. Keep your eye on the prize..
I will pray for you and I know you will be fine...
