First off, Do you know any Medifast recipes with papaya? Looking forward for any response. Another question I got... So my surgeons office just called asking me which.

Surgery.

I was getting......i knew something was up considering I already have everything done and I am ready to go for Oct 26th........

Aparently the first surgeon who I saw I did not like and kept trying to convince me to get the.

Lap band.

And veer away from the gastric....so she solely educated me on the lapband which made me NOT want it even more!!!! (unexpectidly..I was unaware there was two surgeons in the office where my aunt had hers done because the 2nd surgeon is new to the medical world as of 2009..my aunt had hers in 2005)..

So aparently she filled out the paperwork as if I wanted the lapband and when the office submitted the paperwork I GOT APPROVED for the LAPBAND!! and that was over a month ago.........and now I find out that since she did it wrong (SHE ISN'T EVEN MY SURGEON!!!) that I have to REAPPLY to see if I get approved for the gastric bypass......i want to throw up I am so upset =(.

If she can not even fill out a paper right.

....come.

On!!! I am so upset. I got everything done in my personal life ...got my time off from both jobs....set up my clients at the salon around those two weeks off...NOW it can all change! I am so frusterated....and now I am so down... I can get denied because it looks like I changed my mind and insurance companies don't like that.....

Had this happened to anyone else?? If so what was your results...HELP! I will not know until at least 48 hours which means the next two days are going to be the longest two days of my life..=(..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

Positive thoughts that it'll just a matter of a phone call or two and some new forms. I would be pissed too. If your BMI and other things qualified you for weight loss.

Surgery.

You should be fine... it's just a different tool aimed at the same goal..

Good vibes being sent,.

I am well aware this is not a quick fix......I have 2 aunts that had the.

Surgery.

And my moms best friend had it...so I am well aware it is a life change and NOT a quick fix because whoever thinks it is shouldn't be getting it..

My main concern is I rearranged my life schedule around the.

Surgery.

...took time off from college...scheduled all my clients at the salon around the recovery time....etc etc..

BUTTTTTTT I do realize...EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON! sometime you just dont realize why at first.....

Thanks Shelly!! I really appreciate it..... I am going to shower myself with positive things over the next 48 hours....and luckily my surgeons office will fight for me if heaven for bid I should get denied..... the guy who I work with felt so bad and didn't want to tell me. I know he is not going to call with bad news unless he has done everything in his power........

Thanks for the positivity!!!..

It seems like maybe you have lost confidence in your team and that is understandable. If this I'd not what you want and if this is not your team choice, then now is the time to make a change. Many people change the type of.

Surgery.

I changed from band to sleeve and changed surgeons and I actually got moved up a month!.

Much better to wait, if you even have to, and get it right...

I completely understand your frustrations. I would be so upset, it takes so long to get to that point and then to be let down like that. Hoping things work out for you...

Comment #7

I would be pissed beyond belief.especially after all the money, and all the hoops they make us jump through!..

Comment #8

Ya I felt time stood still for a quick minute lol..... but this is the reason why I didnt want to go with that specific surgeon because she wanted me to get what she wanted to do....... without taking my lifestyle and availability into consideration.........

So I am staying positive and crossing all fingers and toes!!!..

I.

Hope.

Everything works out for you girl! I would be beside myself. The most important thing is that you get the.

Surgery.

You want though. You have to live with this for the rest of your life, so don't let the surgeon bully you into something else. I will be praying for you :-)..
