my doctor is having me drink some chicken broth too, but it's because i have to have a higher salt intake due to my lithium. some doctors allow 1 cup of broth. I'd ask your doctor.

Patrick, if you make it secret I will join. I have a lot of coworkers and family on my Facebook that don't know i'm doing this.

mine is July 2nd. I'm nervous about some things, disappointed at some of the people that wont support me, but overall extremely excited. I can't wait for July 2nd to be here! I stay busy at work so I don't think about it much there. but it's constantly on my mind when i'm at home. my boyfriend keeps me busy so it's not too bad. i've become obsessed with this website though. :P

I'm July 2nd too! I have only told my hubby and 3 very close friends, and my mom is going with me. I mentioned to my family that I was looking into it a couple of months ago and they *threw a fit* so no more information for them. I don't need to hear it :) Getting super excited!

That sucks that your fam isn't that supportive. MY aunt had RNY so we've been through this before.

My sisters are young, slim and haven't had kids. They diet and work out and don't understand why I don't just do the same. They dont get that they spend enourmous time and energy dieting and working out JUST TO MAINTAIN their weight. I'm a busy wife and mom and am starting 100 pounds behind. When I do what they do I simply maintain as well, there's no loss. My mom is supportive and my husband is happy for me although not exactly thrilled because he's so worried, so I do have some support and I'm happy with that.

I would join too but I don't want anyone on FB to know. If it were a "secret" or private group I'd join. Is that even possible?

The group is set to Private - so only I can invite members, and only other members can view other members and posts. So year it is possible.

My surgery date is July 18th and I'm already sick of Protein shakes. I've been on 1 shake and 2 meals per day since April 19. I can't bear to think of a 5 week liquid diet (2 weeks before surgery, 3 weeks after). My doctor is very strict with this eating plan.

I would love tojoin you guys on Facebook. How do I do it?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
