  3. Hello all! Got a question on vitamins pre op... i take 3 of the bariatric advantage multivitamins with iron a day and then I take an extra iron pill too since I am anemic. I also take a biotin barimelt too. Should I even be taking the multi vitamin preop? and do I need to stop them before surgery? I asked the surgeon... sent him an email... waiting for response. Just trying to see what others have done. My surgery is april 2nd so just a little over 2 weeks away.

    Approved... But having provider doubts.

    Honestly I would definitely go with your gut instinct on this one... not sure on the tests and having to redo them. I would think you could get all your records and transfer them. Hopefully it can be done seamlessly. Good luck to you!

    changed my mind about the lapband

    just contact your doctor office that submits everything and they can change it for you and resubmit... it usually takes less than 2 weeks for an answer from BCBS. They are pretty fast. You can call them within a few days to check on it as well. Thats what I did. It only took a week or so for me.
  8. yesssss!!! excitement is good!!!! gotta love the month of April!!!!

    Pre Op Diet

    good idea to do two shakes then lean and green for dinner and then 2 -3 snacks in between

    I agree gall bladder pain is awful!! i had pain on and off but haven't had any for about 6 months . Once I went for my pre op ultrasound they could see a couple stones.. so mine will come out on april 2nd during my weight loss surgery.

    Oh no so sorry to hear that! Don't worry it wont be bad... hang in there! I worried that the same thing would happen to me so I spoke to my surgeon about it the other day while he was giving me my surgery date which is april 2nd,! and he didn't have it on the list to do with my surgery until I brought it up... then he sad YES there are gall stones and we will remove it during your weight loss surgery an fix a hiatal hernia as well. Ughh not looking forward to all that but it has to be done. I thought it would anyway since I have had that same kind of pain in the past that you are currently having . I don't think you will have problems recovering and you will feel so much relief after it is done. best wishes
