    Hi everyone,
    I am getting my upper GI done this Monday, did anyone else have to have an upper GI before the Sleeve surgery? I am super excited to get the Sleeve done, it seems like it is taking forever. I just want it done already!
    Anyway, I am happy to have found this site. I am looking forward to the support!

    Yes I had an upper GI before my surgery. Be patient it will come and you will then lose lots of weight. The best is yet to come.

    I had an upper GI done as well. It wasn't the most pleasant thing, but I made it through! Lol! I didn't have a hernia which is good! You will do great! Best of luck on your journey!!

    As of this morning I weighed 188 pounds which not only means I am down 9 pounds for the month but that I have officially hit the 100 pound mark! It’s a good day

    I haven’t had a food funeral yet, but I’m having those food shaking their curvy body cravings. It’s the, “I know you want me. Come and get it big boy!”

    My surgery is on the 29th, but I only have to do liquids the day before.....BUT I have chosen to do something very similar to what your doctor orders starting on Tuesday.
    Right now I am trying hard to at least try to eat healthy, but it is so hard as i am having food funerals.

    Good Luck. What are you having for your liquid diet? I am just having Protein Shakes, maybe a Protein Water depending if I get sick of shakes....and maybe broth if I feel the need. I can also have up to two cups of non starchy veggies if I want and need to take a Fiber supplement .

    I just started two week pre-op today. My surgery is at the end of the month- 1/30. I feel like I am bringing up the tail end here since everyone else is already having surgery this month or just in a few days. Impatiently waiting LOL
    Good luck to everyone this week and next! I'm sure in a few days I will be a hangry mess...today I will be fine because I am still full from all of the food I ate yesterday haha.....ugh

    You’ve got this! I will be one week postop tomorrow I had a huge hernia repaired, and I literally just finished 10 minutes on the stationary bike. Today is the first day of the rest of your life you are going to do awesome.

    I’m in the waiting room waiting for surgery today. The doc was talking about hernia repair, adhesion removal and scar revision from an old battle wound. No longer excited, more like terrified.

    I’m glad you found a popcorn that made you feel good. Popcorn is a staple snack for me, and giving it up is like pulling teeth without nova cane

    I'm noticing more young women getting surgery. I'm wondering if anyone else had it in 50 or 60s and how you did?

    I’m on my 10th day of the liquid only diet before surgery. The doctor’s nurse told me I could cheat on Christmas so I had a very small piece of ham, a tablespoon of mashed potatoes and white gravy. But back today to total liquid.

    Kind of started yesterday ... since it was Xmas day spouse and I had an early lunch of roast duck with stuffing ... but rest of the day was all liquids. Continuing full liquids today in earnest ... not going to bad so far. Had a Premier Protein shake this morning, and has Soup with a Premier Protein Clear for lunch. Lots of Water and herbal teas in between.
