Hey Everyone,

My date is June 09, I start my pre-op diet on the 26th of May!! (day of, not night per MD lol) I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I'm able to have Protein shakes and non-starcy Veggies along with the Clear Liquids.< /p>

YAY! Another June 9th! I'll be thinking of you! I have my pre-op appointment tomorrow. I'll find out what time I will have surgery and when I start my liquid diet. they asked me to lose 20 lbs and I have done so. Since I am so overweight, I am anxious to see how long I'll be on it. I know someone not nearly as heavy as I but went to the same surgeon, she had NO pre-op liquid diet. JEALOUS!!! Not sure but will find out soon :-)

Luckily, I like my Protein but may not if my pre-op diet is a long time, lol.

I haven't set my surgery date yet but I meet with the surgeon 5/26 to set one. I'm REALLY hoping I will have it done in June!!! My clothes have been getting tighter and tighter and I REFUSE to buy a bigger size!!! So I need this done in June so I can start fitting comfortably back into my clothes! :) P.S.- How did you make the weight loss goal line thingy that you all have at the bottom of your posts??? I need me one ;)

CONGRATS!!!

I was supp to be until BCBS IL changed their policy from a 3 month dietary documentation to a 6 month. Now....I'm a little worried. When I started my Dietary appts for approval of Lap Band Surgery, I was told 3 months. After I finished 3 months, BCBS of IL said the policy changed and now I would need 3 additional months. I cried like a baby...I'm a teacher and I tried to plan just right, so surgery would take place during Summer.

Here's my question: My primary doctor prescribed Phentermine for 3 months last year, do you thing that could count? In a ddition, I have proof of ordering Low Carb Proteins and shakes during the time I was on Phentermine and I also purchased an Elliptical Machine. What do you think my chances of approval are?

Did you have to document your Diet for 3-6 months? It seems like things went fast, I see you did the nutritionist for only a month?

Hi, I wanted to join in. I'm having surgery on June 23. Can't wait (plus it will be nice to get some time off of work). I'm currently 280 pounds - and hope to get down to 160 (or less). Definitely have some head issues as to not being able to eat certain foods again - but I'm sure I'll get over them. For now, I'm still eating whatever I want - but need to go on liquids on June 13. Haven't found a Protein Shake I like yet - and wonder if anyone has a recommendations? I think a huge obstacle for me is the fact that I work third shift. I'm up for so many hours each day - having 3 small meals will be tough. Working with the nutritionist on just when to plan my meals. Oh, I bought a jigger with the hopes it will help me drink only one ounce of Water at a time ... so many things to learn ... Looking forward to sharing the journey!

SOOOOOO I was supposed to start my 26 day preopreative diet yesterday.. Optifast.. HOWEVER... when I weighed in at the doctors, my BMI was 41.6, I have about 10 lbs to play with and my particular insurance can deny payment below 40.... SO my preop diet will be 4 days of Optifast before surgery, that is it! SCORE, I am so excited. Don't get me wrong I was looking forward to the weight loss and starting yesterday but it is going to save me almost 500.00!!! I am not going to complain about that :)

So excited for everyone... here we go! I am 25 days away from my new life!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
