    Lol I heard you. My doctor place me on 1000 cal a day ketogenic diet. Day before surgery 1 Premier drink for breakfast then clear liquids diet. Drink 1 bottle of Clearfast between 6pm and 8 pm. Drink at least 2 quarts of fluids during the day. Day of the surgery I can have clear liquids up to 4 hours of the Surgery, 2 hours poor to surgery drink another bottle of Clearfast. My surgery is scheduled for 0730. My arrival time is o530 3/7. Here is my approve list of clear liquids and the Clearfast.

    I take flinstone Multivitamins, Alive B-complex gummies, and Bariatric Advantage calcium chews. I don’t care for capsules, so I opt for chewables/gummies. I don’t love the flinstone multivitamins, but they meet my nutritionist’s standards. Love love love the B-complex and Calcium chews. I tried the Celebrate multivitamins, but they made me vomit almost immediately! They just didn’t work for me. I get everything from Amazon.

    I am not making a plug for Bariatric Vitamins but here goes. For me I thought about what I had just went thru and knowing that I am in this forever. I felt like I should at least buy the Bariatric vitamins. I tried the Flintstones and they were horrible, I tried the chewable Centrum vitamins but man they are so nasty I ouldn't handle them. I have taken Celebrate Capsule for the whole time after trying the ones that made me sick. Another thing about me is I started taking chewable Vitamin C, they tasted so good kind of like a sour candy which I love beyond love anything sweet and tangy. Not good for me when I was woofing them down like candy. lol I buy CELEBRATE at Amazon. I like the fact that they are capsule and if need be you could open them and put them in applesauce or something while you are early out. Just my take on vitamins.

    I got mine from walmart! My nutritionist wants us to take 2 flinstone completes, calcium citrate (which I got a big off brand bottle at Kroger for like 8 bucks), a sublingual B12, Iron (if you're a women and have your period still),and Vitamin D. I got all of mine at either Walmart or Kroger, and the good thing about Kroger is most of the time certain brands are buy one get one free!

    From my support groups, the only one I see people actually buying from Bariatric Advantage is the Calcium citrate as chews. They made me nauseous though, so I take mine as pills.

    I feel great, I just had blood work done, so I'll know at the end of next week if they're working!

    I would look for "compare to..." brands
    Also buy from somewhere with an easy return policy...
    I like Sam's club member Mark multi Vitamin gummies. Tastes like candy and 320 for $10! (comparable to vitafusion)

    I get my Vitamins at costco. Inexpensive and good quality. Advice that I've been given at my monthly meetings, don't go into a Vitamin shop and ask for vitamins for post bariatric surgery. They will sell you hundreds of dollars of vitamins you don't need. You will need to take a multi vitamin, calcium citrate not carbonate (the body doesn't absorb it as well) a B12 sublingual pill.

    So, I have a date set for March 5th to have VSG. I'm now feeling I should go for the Bypass....anyone else feeling this way? My surgeon says either are fine, but I just don't know. Anyone out there have any advice? Sleeved or those with bypass. I appreciate the help. I hope to make some friends on here, not many outside my family know about my upcoming surgery. Could use a suppo a system. [emoji4]

    I went in for surgery in Jan and he ended up just doing a liver biopsy as my liver was enlarged, diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver.
    Surgeon required me to lose 30lbs prior to trying again. I ate 1200 calories a day and limited my carbs to less than 100. Lots of salads Soups and tacos. Lost most in 6 weeks and had my surgery. Lost more the week before surgery on the pre-op diet.
    Youve got this. I was pissed for a while but got over and got it done!
    good luck!

    I felt pretty good except for bad pain in my belly button. It’s odd because it was so localized, so I felt good otherwise. I was actually up and grading the day after. sleeping hurt like all heck, so I just kept myself busy.

    I had surgery April 20, 2017 and have lost 108 pounds so far. I started at 247.8 surgery weight. It can be done if you want it bad enough. If you are going to grieve over sugar food loss or if you are going to miss your “comfort foods” more than you want good health and the comfort of feeling human again, do not have the surgery. You are not ready. If however you go into the surgery arming yourself with all the knowledge you can get and believe in yourself DO IT. Remember, YOU are the only person who can make you fail. Since you have waited so long for this I believe you won’t let yourself down. Be excited. The day of your surgery will be the start of a wonderful new healthy life. Good Luck.
