I finally got my approval today. I have been going through this process for almost a year now and have been fighting with my insurance company for about 7 months. I was denied by Aetna 3 times and my case went through the external review which I found out today that I won. I hired Lindstrom Obesity Advocacy and they were great. I can't wait to get a date and finally be apart of the losers bench. I feel like I'm getting a second chance at life. For all those having a hard time getting approved DO NOT GIVE UP.

Has anyone ever had trouble getting a response from Lindstrom Advocacy Group? I emailed them and filled out the online contact form, but I haven't heard anything.

They did take a few days to get back to me when I first filled out the form. I also called them and left a voicemail.

why were you not approved the first time Aetna denied me I'm going through the 3 month nut program again because Aetna said I need doctor notes

        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.
