    We’re surgery twins! Getting nervous/excited about the liquid diet starting Thursday.
    I’m having mine done in New Orleans.

    Hi all,
    My RNY is scheduled for 2/24/22 assuming elective surgeries continue (they were postponed in January but my date was not affected and I was able to have my endoscopy this morning). I start the milk diet on Thursday the 10th. From what I understand this is something that is more common in the UK but I am in the US.
    I am getting excited but nervous!

    I love chicken pad Thai so much, but I haven't had it in months. I used to eat a full order in a sitting at least once a week. Last night i asked if they could replace the rice noodles with bean sprouts and ate 1/4th of an order (about 1 cup). My husband's full order is included for comparison. It was amazing!

    Ugh. I’m sorry. I hope they stick to your new date. I’m on Remicade and they scheduled the surgery exactly in the middle of my infusions so they said it shouldn’t be a problem. 🤞
    Good luck!

    Taltz. So, originally they estimated my surgery to happen in Nov/Dec. They wanted me off of it for 2 months beforehand, since it effects my immune system, therefore effects healing. However, I was struggling to get over a virus, so I went off of it slightly early - in August. Then they said they weren't sure if they surgery would be before or after they holidays, because the hospital closed over a nursing shortage. When they called to schedule it... It was 2 months out, I'm assuming because of all of the rescheduling they had to do. So, I'm not supposed to start it back up until 2 months after the surgery, once healed up. But my skin is a mess, my scalp is peeling and hurting so badly, among other sensitive areas. I'm getting joint and nerve issues. I just never expected to be off of it this long. They said I might not need to go back on it after, but I can't see that happening. These issues were around when I was skinny, I have had it since I was 12, though not diagnosed until around 21. Sorry for the novel. 😬

    I'm getting the bypass on Feb. 21st. I'm also concerned that it could end up being pushed back. I've been preparing for months, which also means I've stopped taking a medicine for my psoriatic arthritis and it's getting very difficult. I've lost 20 lbs. though.

    I'm mostly off of caffeine and carbonation (I've had it on occasion, but very rarely- it's just not part of my daily life any more). I don't cook, so I still struggle with what I'm eating. I just have a few go to foods and eat a lot less. i need a better meal plan. I'm well stocked with Protein drinks/powders/waters that have helped me though.

    Today I was walking through the center of town (closed to cars) and was people-watching... how easily they moved, how energetic they seemed to be.
    I'm having a lot of trouble reconciling the idea that a year from now, if I stick to the plan and keep working the way I know I can, I could be that way.
    I've been so obese for so long that I can't imagine a life where I can just... go to a store and buy pants. Or just... decide to sleep somewhere else without having to pack up my CPAP. Or just... run for the sake of running. I literally cannot imagine it. It should be a source of motivation, but it's impossible for me to wrap my mind around it. And then I get all overwhelmed.
    I've failed so many times before, that I don't dare let myself hope.
