TTgirl, just saw this, hope you have a smooth recovery time. Dr. Almanza is great.

I only did the diet for 6 or 7 days as I got a surgery date really quickly when I called. It did not matter for me. Everyone is different. do not worry about the pre surgery nerves. TOTALLY normal. Plus, once you get to the clinic, they will give you a "calm down" chill pill. LOL. I had to wait all day my surgery was not until 5 P.M. and I mostly slept, I tried to watch TV or read, but, just kept dozing off. My husband was with me he was amazed at how calm I was, then he figured out it was the drugs. He tried to get Dr. Betencourt to give him a RX of what ever it was for me for later. ha ha funny man. They really take great care of you.

You are on your journey to a whole new world. You are going to love the nu u.

Breathe deeply, let go, smile at the world to come. Be patient. Post often. We are all here for you. God Bless.

Congrats and good luck!! You will do so well, the sleeve really is easy to live with! Who are you having surgery with?

It is normal for some sureons to require only a few days for liquids, some require weeks. I only had to do 3 days, which is just fine with me!!

Good luck, and keep us posted!! We care!

Well, really, Dr. Almanza did it ;-). I returned home just a few hours ago and going through a variety of emotions. Just posting to say thank you to those of you who wished me well and offered encouragement. Melissa answered my million questions to the last few moments before surgery. Dr. Almanza is obviously very knowedgeable and also very personable - I had no second thoughts after I met him. Dr. Betancourt was warm and his visit eased some of the pre-op jitters. Janet is a wealth of knowledge and very supportive. The recovery house is really lovely and an excellent environment for recovery. The nurses, drivers and support staff were helpful and pleasant - language restrictions notwithstanding. All in all in good experience. Tired now but details to follow. Thanks again for the support. I will certainly need to draw upon the collective wisdom as I move toward my goals.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
