Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
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.

Every doctor is different. Follow your doctor's orders and you won't go wrong. Mine was different from yours, and many others here were, too, but YOUR doc is responsible for your good health, and he will not endanger it.

Good luck on your surgery!

Follow YOUR surgeon's program. No deviations.
That said.
Yes, some have that program. This is to have you get used to what life will be like immediately post op (liquids) yet not have you feel deprived yet (1 reg meal). A guarantee for the surgeon that you will not gain weight, but lose some to shrink the liver a bit to make surgery easier.

Pre op roller coaster emotions are quite normal.

From what I have read, there are several pre-op diets. My Dr. has me doing the 7day before High Protein/low carb/lowfat Shakes, with steamed vegetables(no butter/nosalt). and clear fluids. I think he knows that the 14day liquid diet would send me over the edge,lol
My surgery is Aug18th, so I have decided (on my own) to cut out carbs, and sugar on Aug 3rd. I'm hoping this will ease me into things slowly
Good Luck on your journey

Laurlee, be prepared for withdrawal symptoms for the first 3-5 days. Sugar is a drug, and your body will protest its absence. This is perfectly normal and actually to be welcomed, because the agonies you are exeriencing is the start of the carb monster's death throes.

DO NOT GIVE IN to the urge to have "just a little" sugar, as it will only prolong the process. You need to kill that carb monster and drive a stake through its heart!! It has never been your friend, despite what it whispers so sweetly and seductively in your ear!

You are smart to go through this before your surgery, as it's just one more stress you don't need in the immediate post-op period. You'll have plenty to cope with then, anyway!!

Yep they are all different. More than likely you have a comorbidity that needs to have this done to make it safer for you to lose some this way before you have the surgery. It will prepare your body for this surgery better than if you wasnt on it.

I have seen this before on many. They will say after the first few days they get used to it and are fine with it. Of course its the first few days that litterly suck.

Hang in there this is a path you gotta do before you can go on. Like DOC said... dont falter from this..... its somthing you have to do and dont.... cheat... honey its very possible he would make you start it again and its weeks more. Be good to you and follow the directions and it will be here faster than you think. Take care of you!

day two of pre op liquid diet. I did have one table spoon of peanutbutter. Could not get enough protein. It helped with the shaky feeling I was having before I left work. I need to get more protein in during the day. I think I drank enough, no sugar, no carbs, but by the end of the day I was very shakey.
