Weigh in number 5 of 6 with my PCP and a ?



Recommended Posts

Well I had my weigh in with my pcp on saturday. I gained 5 lbs from last time when i was 252. I kinda knew it (aunt flo is in town as well so maybe that added like a pound). So when i started i was 251 and now im 257. great....just great.... I have my last weigh in on sept 21 and then i will go back for my second surgical consultation.

My Pcp suggested for me to lose btwn 5-10 lbs. I hope this can be done in 3 weeks.

The question is for those of you that had a 6 month requirement.... were they very strict about the visits being a month apart exactly . For the most part my visits have been but this last one is about a week shy of being a month..

Yes I have Bluecare network in Mi and they are ver strict with your pcp appointments if theybare not consecutive for 6 months straight you have to restart all over again.

Sounds like you're asking if they have to be exactly 1 month apart?

Check with your surgeon's office. You'll want to be sure for your ins requirements.

I know one of my months was 5 weeks apart and another month 3 weeks apart.

Yes. If I missed a month I would have had to start all over again.

Yes this is exactly what i am asking. Do they have to be exactly one month apart. so far i have weighed in on 4/29, 5/25, 6/29, 7/27 and 8/31. my next one is scheduled for 9/21 is that far enough apart?

That was similar to my situation but I would still check with the office that will send in your info to the ins for approval. They should know for your ins.

My 6 months (thru bcbs) have to be completed consecutively but the actual dates in the month don't matter. Like everything else, seems requirements are across the board :/

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
