Three days to go and nervous!



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am scheduled to have the VSG done in Mexico on Friday and I am nervous and excited. My pre-op diet requires three days of liquids only but I have seen posts where some patients had two week liquid diets. Any idea why the difference in duration.

I joined this site for some reassurances that the anxiety that I am feeling is normal since I am about to embark on the unknown.

Any and all positive vibes are welcome.

Thanks so much,

TTGirl

My doctor requires 2 weeks of clear Fluid and Protein shakes prior to surgery. My understanding is that it is to shrink the liver as it can get in the way. Apparently it has to be moved to do the surgery and the smaller it is, the better the field of view is.

Seems to vary by patient and by surgeon. I had a lower starting BMI and did not have to do a pre-op diet at all. In fact, my pre-op diet consisted of eating as much as I could of all of my favorites during the final week. LOL

There were others there who did do pre-op diets tho.

It is scary upfront - but you will be happy later!

      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.
