  6. I have been having a lot of trouble taking my Vitamin b1 post surgery now that it has to be crushed. I tried everything but nothing seemed to work the taste is awful :thumbup: so I asked my pharmacist for some suggestions she told me to try using hersheys chocolate syrup (sugar free of course) I was unsure but decided to try it and it definitely did the trick now I can take my vitamin with no problems. I hope this helps someone else.

  14. Hello everyone I have been doig a little thinking and I was wondering if I switch insurance due to changing jobs, will my future insurance disallow fills because it was a pre-existing condition? Hopefully someone can help me out with the answer to this question.
  15. Hello everyone my name is Chaval and I'm pretty new to this site. I am in the waiting process and it's killing me, after all the pre-op testing this is the hardest part. I try not to think about it so much but I can't help it. My surgeons office called on Tuesday and told me all of my paper work was faxed to my insurance company and that it usually takes 2 to 3 weeks hopefully it wont take that long. I pray I get approved because I reallly want this to happen,:biggrin:
