Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can help you..
I might have asked you this, but would.
Not do the same...with less intrusion?.
My coworker had gastric bypass, but her weight is still an issue. In addition she has to eat something constantly, to.
Low blood sugar, and...unlike.
My wife wants lapband, but I've told her I don't like the idea of unnecessary.
I can SO relate to how you are feeling. My.
Was rescheduled 3 times..
The first time I was scheduled for 9/11; but my son became very ill and hospitalized on 9/2 so I rescheduled..
Was for 10/26, I did all my bloodwork, paperwork for the second time and on the day before my.
(after being on the.
For 3 days) I got a phone call at 4:30 from the surgeon's bookkeeper. To make a very long story short; she messed up my paperwork and didn't process it correctly so the hospital would not give the go ahead for the.
Then, the 3rd time; one week before my.
, my husband had an accident and needed an emergency hip replacement (he was only 50 yrs old at the time)..
FINALLY, on March 26, 2009 I had my.
And everything went perfectly..
It was totally worth waiting for..
Hang in there...
Tigerpaws- yes you have asked me before... and after researching the.
For over a year it is def NOT for me..... and it does not do the same....... in my opinion there is a lot more to the.
...all info about the band is all about loosing weight...but it doesnt bother to tell you that you can not get your first injection of liquid into the band until 8 weeks after the initial placement..and 2nd injection is 6 weeks after that.......etc etc etc oh and after each injection you are on a special Medifast diet 2 days liquid 2 days puree 2 days soft 2 days solid...everytime.... I travel too much it is not for me... it worked great for some but it is def NOT for me...and my family and doctors agree.,..
And what is unnecessary to you might not be to her. We each have our own opinions and I cant tell you how many people think I am crazy because "I dont look fat"..... yet I'm 271 lbs... and 5'8. the fact that I have an hourglass shape and still weigh as much as I do really throws people off..........
It's time to get healthy and I dont feel like paying for insulin in the future since my weight has now made me pre-diabetic....
Affects everyone differently...remember that....
Loose 2 live wow 3 times! I am praying that doesnt happen to me because I took time off from.
Already and I dont want to take a whole year off because my.
Keeps getting post-poned..... but I'm sure it was worth it!..
Hello it's going to be ok god is stopping this for a reason so dont worry it's going to be ok.i have mine on dec 22,2010 and my doctor let me pick my date..
It's all about the timing. It will be when it will be. This is just a challenge to grow. I too had mine postponed. I went for preop and was told that as of that day the hospital wasn't taking my insurance any more. The drs office assistant scrambled, begged the dr telling him I was already on fluids, and got me worked in 3 days later at another hospital. I was the last one in at 7:30 pm and the second one out the next day...
Bless your heart...but good thought, we don't always know why something like this happens...but trust that it is for a good reason....and when the time is right it will be perfect...
Nice sentiment....pain in the butt if it is you...when I was in the process of adopting my son, the next person who said to me..."well God is waiting to give you just the right baby at the right time" was going to get a knuckle sandwich....I wanted that baby now today.....
In fact if the had an at home weight loss.
Kit, I would be picking one up on the way home.....
Hang in their girlie, what does not kill us, makes us stronger...eventually :o).......liz..
I'm SORRY, I am excited for myself but I feel bad that you have to go through this disappointment again :(..
I to believe that God must have a good reason for it to be rescheduled again.. I am frustrated that my ins may not auth mine before my.
Date next week. gotto remember it's in his perfect time...
You know girl, I would be.
The wall but I love your attitude. Everything happens for a reason, just think about all the problems that you are missing with the delays. Keep strong!..
So here we go again...all amped up...doing great on my Medifast diet and BAM...doctors office leaves a message "Please call me back regarding your.
Date..."...... well I'm not stupid and I know what thhat means.....
SOOOOOOOO For the second time my.
Is being rescheduled becaue my surgeon will be away.... I don't understand why they didn't know when they rescheduled the first time......
I have family who took time off from work and rescheduled my life around this now....got to reschedule...except now it's harder...my november is full a lot already......
Ohh man... God must keep putting this off for a good reason........
Grrrr I would be spitting nails for a bit too but you have a.
... your time will come and we'll be happy.
With you when you share all your wows!.
Don't know if I would be as nice about this as you are. I guess it's better to try and look on the bright side though, huh? Here 's a small consolation... It gives you a bit more time to try (and then eliminate) some nasty tasting proteins! lol. Hang in there! We'll save you a spot on the bench for sure!.
I don't know how you can stand it... Sorry! Maybe God is doing it for. A reason...I am frustrated, my psych letter should have been faxed in 10 days ago.... They just didn't do it. I am so tired of being preSurgery. I think the.
Is very necessary... I have a lot of things wrong with me... And the.
Doesn't help diabetes as much...lots of new.
Is out about what a complicated disease obesity is! Val..
I got a call telling me mine was being postponed as I was in the bathroom doing the "colon prep" the afternoon before.
By the time I got out of the bathroom and heard the message, the office was closed - so I didn't know if postponed meant a couple hours, days, or months until they opened again the next morning..
I was so upset!! Thankfully, the sugery was only postponed until the next day (and they didn't make me drink more "special juice" to clean out my insides!).
I'm feeling for you!!.
