  1. Any fellow march surgery buddies on solids yet?
    Not full time solids, but I do have on occasion. Random things like a like a piece of chicken from one of my kids Chipotle bowls, a (very small) piece of pizza during a birthday party, stuff like that. My rny was 3/1 and I am almost 6 weeks out. Not sure if it helps, but my dietician said rny heal faster than sleeve so we normally progress sooner.

  2. I strongly suggest waiting until the 18 month mark before even trying to get pregnant. Its great that you have lost weight so far, but once you are pregnant your weight loss will be put on hold and chances are you will never get back on track. The first 12-24 months are the prime time for losing weight with these surgeries and trying to grow a life inside you is draining!

    Unfortunately, I know this first hand. I had a lap band placed in August 2017 and delivered my first child in January 2019. He was basically conceived around the 9 month mark. I don't recommend it.

  3. My husband is VERY against WLS surgery He says I haven't tried to lose weight or create a healthier lifestyle on my own. Now that I have been on the pre-op diet and losing some weight he says the same as another poster said ... why can't you just keep doing this?

    He also is very cautious about surgeries in general so that doesn't help.

    I was originally scheduled for January 4th, then rescheduled for January 25, then again for March 4; now we're settled in for March 11, unless COVID throws something else at us!

    Oh wow, I thought being rescheduled once was bad! Hang in there, we will all get through this. :)

    I was January 18 but was postponed due to covid patients in the hospitals. My new date is March 3rd. I will start my pre op diet on Feb 16th. I'm glad it starts after the superbowl and after valentine's day. I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel (again). Hopefully I won't be postponed again! Good Luck everyone!

    I am right there with you! Originally scheduled for 1/20, but postponed due to covid patients. I just found out on Friday that I am scheduled for 3/1.

    During the 4 weeks of not knowing what was going on, I was ready to throw in the towel. Thankfully I have maintained my weight. but need to restart the liver shrink diet ASAP!
