  10. Now the real wait begins! My PA emailed me to let me know that she has submitted my paperwork to the insurance and they tell her to wait at least 15 business days to hear back from them. I have Anthem BCBS, so if you have the same insurance...how long is the real wait?
  11. Unfortunately no it's strictly liquids! Yuck! Lol Sent from my iPhone using VST
  12. My only choices are Bariatric Advantage High Protein Meal Replacement (any of the 5 flavors), powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury Protein powder (any of the 5 flavors), Premier High Protein shake (pre-made) (any of the 3 flavors), Body Fortress whey Protein Powder (any of the 5 flavors), or the SlimFast 321 Low Carb shakes. Also I have to mix the Bariatric Advantage and Body Fortress with Water and the Unjury with Fat-Free Milk. So what do you all think? What was your favorite protein shake and which flavor? I am so excited about this journey but this is what is going to scare the hell out of me!

  20. My surgeon's office wants us to only use those five choices. I don't remember why but they did tell us in the Nutrition class. I just hate to buy it and then not like it...lol!
  21. I know right! Once I got someone at my surgeon's office to respond to me, I got all of my clinicals submitted and approved in 4 days!! Just think I could have been approved a long time ago!
