  1. Yes the centrum chewables are gross! I heard that the generic CVS brand taste much better and have all the nutrients we need. B-12 sublingual is recommended 2week post op to help with energy. B-1 is also recommended for metabolism. Then about 3 weeks out a vitamin D with calcium to be be taken as well.My NUT said Tablet form can be taken after a few months of my stomach tolerates it. Hope that helps:)
  2. Hang in there! I am 12 days post op and only lost 12 pounds. I feel like it's not coming off fast enough! But I've read ALOTE of forums saying to go back to basics with the full liquids and increase your protein intake
  3. I so need a change in taste! Can I have some peanut butter if I make it liquidey one week post op?
  4. It depends on how long and how much you smoke. Nicotine is gone within 7-10 days but the by products in which they look for starts with a letter C. Can't think of it right now but that can stay in you system for up to 6 weeks. I would quit now. I had to cold turkey because I wanted this surgery bad.
  5. Hi I am 2 days out and don't know how much fluids to drink. For example I just woke up and sipped 4ozwith my vitamins. Should I stop and wait awhile before starting a protein shake?

  7. Wow nice Shaei! Best of luck to you. Mine was submitted on the 10th to UHC but haven't heard anything yet. Seems like eternity. I have my pre op date and surgery date set already which will be March 3. I hope I get an approval before them. So is optimistic going to contact me? I never heard about them. How long did it take for you approval from the date they submitted it?
  8. Hi Shaei, did your surgery get approved by UHC?
  9. Does anyone have UHC in California? How long did it take to get approval from insurance from the day it was submitted?
  10. Anyone with UHC in California who's insurance didn't require a 6 month diet? How long of a wait for approval? Does it matter how much weight your loose after the paperwork has been submitted to the insurance?
  11. Thanks for the response TT Master! Do you have a history of PE or was it a side effect from other things? Mine was due to being on the nurva ring (birth control) and being a smoker. So since I have quit both. So hoping I wont have another one because of the first one!!!
  12. Has anyone has a past PE and still went through with having a lapband procedure with Dr. Callery?
  13. I quit smoking 5 months ago but had few on new years. Do you think it will be out of my system by theend of January!
  14. About how long does it take for united healthcare to approve the procedure from the date it was submitted? What is there requirement for weight lose documentation? Thanks hope to here back from someone soon:)
