Any january surgery out there



Recommended Posts

My surgery date is Jan. 14th. I am nervous also. I am also open to suggestions to making the preop diet have a little variety.

I start my pre-op two week liquid diet tomorrow and I'm so excited and nervous! Packing a variety of powders that I like since i will be traveling through the 6th. Click Protein coffee, nectar strawberry Mousse, Unjury chicken broth, Jay Robb tropical dreamsicle, and I add Benefiber to them so I will feel fuller longer. Once I return home, I can fix up other flavors such as vanilla with Torani sugar free syrups. I'm picky and need lots of variety.

Thanks for all of the ideas! Where do you buy your broth and other powders at? I have been buying Protein powdes at Walmart. Also I am going to college and classes begin Jan. 7th and my surgery date is Jan. 14th. I am only taking that week off from school. I only have one class a day except on Wednesday! I am determined!

I personally haven't found any powders that I like; they all have a very similar aftertaste. But, I find that I like almost all of the pre-mixed, ready to drink ones (the Premier Protein at costco are my favorite so far and they've got like 30 grams of protein!).

As for broths, I saw a suggestion on another forum that rocks - buy Soups that are chicken broth based, like chicken noodle, chicken & dumplings etc (I buy the Progresso light) and then just strain out the broth and it tastes MUCH better than plain chicken broth (of course it adds some sodium, but it's not like chicken broth is LOW sodium to start with lol.gif ). It does!! thumbsup.gif

My surgery is set for Jan 24... 3 hours away from my city. I'm waiting for the hospital to call me with the post-op appt for the pre exams. I am excited and highly nervous at the same time because i am highly highly lactose intolerant...ugh. i am experimenting on Protein powders and drinks now to see which ones i can tolerate especially the popular ones everyone seem to be using (isopure clear) ordered Unjury and nectar (not in yet). Listen to what i am doing...my daughter is the only one in the world who knows i am going through this WLS...well, everyone in our family was purchased a plane ticket to go to a family function and its 3 weeks after my surgery. Lots of eating out will be involved and im not sure how i will be able to eat , oops drink my drinks and keep up the secret of me not eating food at the restaurants with the family by only drinking and sipping Soups, ,,this will be a MAJOR challenge along with dealing with the after effects of the surgery....ughhhh pray for strength for me please!!!

Don't stress about the family function. Go ahead as normal, then feign a stomach upset/gastro. Have you Protein drink in the hotel before you eat out then settle for a peppermint tea, "to settle your stomach" when you are out with everyone. If anyone really pushes you on it, tell them in confidence you have a stomach ulcer and can't handle anything too much to eat.

I'm having surgery on jan 21 then it is my sister in law's 50th on feb 1. My "stomach ulcer" is going to be playing up that night!

Good luck. Fingers crossed most people don't even pay attention to what we eat or don't eat.

I was January 11th of last year. I just wanted to say that by this time next year, you will be a whole new person. I loved the ride. Each bit of weight loss revealed more of the true me and each bit revealed more that I could do.

Yesterday I ran 1/4 mile up a steep mountain road at 9,000 feet. Just ran up that hill to the car with heavy boots and a parka and didn't get winded.

I loved the ride. I hope you all do too!
