I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Yeah, don't rush the healing, though it's good that you have 12 weeks to get everything done. You're going to be a whole new you! :) Best wishes that everything goes well and as planned..
Okay when I read the first post response I read her advice wrong. I thought "nut" was idiot not nutritionist. LOL.
Definitely keep a good sense of.
, Keep positive and don't stress yourself even if things become delayed. Stress will definitely slow down the recovery of each.
And definitely like first poster said talk to your nutritionist for you want the right protein intake which will speed up your recovery..

Never happend for no problems Can only tell by overfilling pouch/tummy..
You'll do fine - keep us posted...
Tekwriter! I've been wondering where you were! Good to hear from you again..
I think trying to make you body heal from three surgeries at one time is pretty extreme, especially when the GBS is so major. Talk to you docs about this. Perhaps two six week leaves would be better for you. One for the ankle and spetum, the other for the GBS. But.
A couple of months in between for your body to strengthen..
This must be frustrating for you, I know you are eager to sit on the loser's bench. However, it's probably better to be patient and wise in what you expect from your body..
Whatever you decide, I.
You'll stay in touch...
Thanks all. I will definitely check with the nut that is a good idea. I will let the surgeon know on my first appointment and see what he says. The first two surgeries souned impressive but are relatively minor and same day. Though I am not making light of the time to heal properly...
My friend had RNY in December and hip replacement in May. She needed to lose the weight so that they could do the hip safely and have it last. The point is that even though she really could not much in the way exercising for the first 6-7 months she watched her Medifast diet and still has lost the weight. If they can't do it right away can you hobble back to work while breathing through your mouth. Keep that 12 weeks.
? Best of luck.
I had my GBS in March and 7 weeks later left knee.
And 3 weeks later the right knee. My bariatric surgeon told me I had to wait at least 6 weeks out after my GBS to have any other.
Due to healing and the risk for a blood clot. I don't know if it is the same with having the ankle.
Before the GBS. Whatever you do, you might feel fine, but your body needs to heal so don't push yourself to much!!! I wish you all the best...
