Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

It truly IS amazing how different each surgeon's meal restrictions can be.

I'm over a year out and my doc STILL doesn't want me to eat any toast, crackers, bread of any kind, soup, potatoes, fruit juices, cereal, etc. But he cleared me to have tuna @ 4 weeks...and he says I can drink carbonated beverages as much as I want, as long as they are caffiene free.

I think, more than anything, you have to do what is right for you. I try very hard to stick to the doc's rules, but this is something I have to live with for the rest of my life. It's got to be something reasonable that I can maintain forever. Yanno?

Congrats on your success! You've done a great job!

Oh... I should've said carbonated beverages that are SF and caffiene free.

Wow, I don't think I woulda been able to handle that list...mine was super simple.

Week one was liquids, mainly protein shakes.
Week two/three was purreeds, I ate a lot of beans and eggs
Week four and up was normal food, I ate whatever.

Mind you I have a norwegian menu which is extremely limited and includes such lovely things as 'wasa bread with mackerel in tomato sauce' baaarf lol. Threw that list right out the window!

I was told no carbonated beverages ever. Also decaf coffee only because coffee with caffeine acts as a diuretic and you must drink more water to make up for it. So if you drink 16 ounces of coffee with cafeine you must drink 16 ounces of water just to get even.

My menu is like Jenna's. I am four weeks out and was cleared to eat regular food. No carbonated beverages, no caffiene, no bread, rice or pasta. I was advised to wait on trying beef till 6 months out, but told that if I wanted to try be for warned many people could not handle it. That was enough for me. I won't be trying. I have tolerated everything well with no nausea, vomiting or dumping.

I was also told no caffeine due to possible dehydration and no carbonated beverages. How interesting that these programs have such different guidelines.....

OK,I haven't gotten into the details of the post op diet yet, but I do know that I am not allowed caffeine or carbonation. Caffeines is a diuretic and stimulates the appetite and the air in the carbonation can stretch out the newly formed pouch.

I am only 1 week out...I'm on the 2 wk post op. I can only have strained lite creamy soup (broth only) sugar free jello,pudding,pops, protein shakes. decaf coffee and diluted juices. Absolutely NO carbonated or caffine drinks. This stage is soooo boring. Can't wait for it to be over. But I'm following the rules

My rules after getting off the blue ice chips were: absolutely never ever again am I s'posed to have coffee, caffine, carbonated beverages. BUT if we must cheat on the coffee part it has to be decafe (I drink decaf every now and then cause I love my coffee). My first 3 weeks I was limited to broths and cream soups, yogurt, popsicles, sugar free pudding and applesauce (unsweetened), cream of wheat and oatmeal. during my hospital stay they did give me diluted juice but once I left I was told to not drink juice and if I did that I need to dilute it. Then at week 3 I was able to add moist meats like fish, beans, cottage cheese. Around the 6-8 week mark I was able to start eating regular food as I could tolerate it. They advised no potatoes ever but I do eat them occasionally and if I eat bread the crispier the better.
I always find it funny how much the recommendations and menu's differ from one surgeon to the next.
