    My surgery, gastric bypass from sleeve is set for February 2. This is the third date. First delay due to schedule conflict for Dr and hospital, second delay because my husband had Covid and so now my fingers are crossed for February 2, 2022. Best of luck and positive thoughts for everyone on this journey!

    I'm scheduled for my VSG on February 2nd. I'm almost a week into my pre-op diet and managing okay. One of my challenges is that I live in the Netherlands as my husband works here and I don't speak Dutch super well.

    The post-op guidance here is also different from what I've read online for North America and the Mexico clinics so it's a little harder to use online resources. The foods Dutch people regularly eat are different than I'm used to from North America so this might be one of the reasons. For example the diet for the first 2 weeks post op is called a high-fat liquid diet where it suggests a low-fat yogurt or cottage cheese for lunch, 1 dairy product for mid morning and mid afternoon snack and for dinner pureed potato, meat and veg, followed up with another dairy product for snack after dinner. After that diet for 2 weeks they suggest building up to solids.

    Hello!
    Long time lurker, first reply. I’m going to be sleeved on 2/28. I had my EGD this week, small hernia found that will need to be fixed. I have a few more preop appointments next week. I started adapting to my new lifestyle months ago so slowly, so I’m ready, I started at 330 in July. I’m at 303 today. I don’t know how to put my finger on it but all my attempts at weight loss did not feel like this. I think I’m just over all the limitations I have. I have advanced osteoarthritis and I’m just sick of not being able to get around. I’m in Atlanta Georgia.
    love this forum it has helped me tremendously.

    February 2nd was my day. So far, minimal pain. Nothing needed more than Tylenol. I’m surprised. I had the revision from the sleeve to the roux-en-y. Best decision I’ve made ever for myself. This is definitely different in feelings for food-not hungry even the slightest and still cooked Breakfast for my Mr with no nausea or desire for a bite. I’ll be full liquid diet for 2 weeks. After the sleeve I kept saying I was hungry and they called it head hunger, I tried to convince myself that’s what it was, lol, but no-i was genuinely hungry. Now working on 64 ounces of Water a day and taking my needed meds throughout the day so I can get them all in. Need 60-80 grams Protein but not there yet. 10 grams is all I’ve gotten in since surgery. Have been reads it this is only temporary and I’ll be able to drink more of the Protein Drink eventually. I’ll be honest, the stings from the shots to prevent blood clots is worse than my belly pain. I’ll do those for two weeks twice a day. Done in Iowa and so excited. Oh and I’m in a wheelchair because of fractures in my pelvis. Got an upright walker and am able to start taking steps!! It’s all so new, I’m loving the excitement this has brought with it. Good luck everyone!!!

    I’m scheduled for RNY Revision Feb 8th from a sleeve March 2016. Wish I would have just gotten the RNY in the first place. But I’m excited and ready.

    I’m getting sleeved on 2/17!!! I start my liquid diet on 2/7. This whole time I was so worried about gaining weight and my insurance would deny me. I told my surgeon that today and he told me my insurance doesn’t require that I not gain weight. But luckily I still weighed in at the same amount I was during my consult in June 2021. I’m getting my procedure done at VHC in Virginia and I have Aetna better health (Medicaid).

    I'm having my surgery done through my insurance provider, and they're sending me home with a binder. I'll give it a shot and see if it's helpful.

    I have not been told to use an Abdominal binder. I probably won’t.

    @freckledMegan it sounds like you are prepared. The ProteinO2 surprises me. They are delicious.
    I also drink the Premier Protein shakes and have some unflavored Protein Powder to add when needed.

    Feb 2 VSG in Texas.
    My program doesn't require a liquid diet so I start my liver shrinking low carb diet the 19th. I'm working on cutting out caffeine before surgery and just getting my supplies ordered and ready so I don't have to worry about it post-op

    I'm lucky with the caffeine. Just a unsweet iced tea a couple times a week. Stopped those this week. Glad that's not permanent! It's nice to have something to drink besides Water since I don't like coffee of any kind.

    Nutritionist recommended Unjury chicken Soup whey Protein Powder to make broth. Apparently the taste is amazing and the extra Protein makes it more filling. You can only order it on the UNJURY website.

    I like Premiere Protien shakes, Optimum Whey Protien powders and ProtienO2 water. Concerned I won't be able to all the Protien I need all the time, so I also bought some unflavored Optimum Whey Protien powder to add to food. Nutritionist recommended whey Protien when using powders. You can get the Optimum and ProtienO2 from Amazon. I used Subscribe and Save to get up to 15% off.

    I also bought a highly-rated bariatric cookbook by Sarah Kent ($10 on Amazon). It helped me feel more optimistic about food post-recovery. I'm going to try some of the recipes before surgery to know what I like now and not when I'm hangry.

    One question for everyone...you going to use a post-surgery Abdominal binder? Getting very mixed messages about those.

    I am off caffeine completely now. Headaches from the caffeine withdrawal are gone too. This weekend I stop all sweets. These are usually treats. I do have a big sweet tooth so I am not looking forward to this one. I might start adding Protein Shakes to get around the no sweet rule hahaha



    @MimmyMim it is helpful to start tracking early so you get into good habits now. I am going to try starting that too. I am a bit nervous about sipping Water instead of guzzling it down like I do now.


    How is everyone doing?

    I am also scheduled for the sleeve on February 3 in Georgia. My pre-op diet will begin on the 20th, so right now I am working on tracking Protein, sipping Water all day, and trying to eliminate Diet Coke. That has been much harder than I anticipated! I am excited for everyone!

    Hey all! I'm also scheduled for Feb 3rd and I'm getting the sleeve here in the Los Angeles area. I started this process back in August, and now that I'm weeks away, it's a little overwhelming. I'm mostly really excited, so I'll focus on that emotion as much as possible.
