Just wanted to say hello. A bit on the quiet side so more likely to read than post but had band to bypass revision on the 27th of March. Already my diabetes is gone with no meds blood sugar levels are normal and I've lost 17 pounds(started 275). Feeling great, just can't wait to get my last drain out on the 21st. Just made it to soft foods \o/.

Wow thats great! I also have diabetes. I am having RNY done on April 22nd and presenly I am on the Optifast liquid diet. I had to do it for 4 weeks and I am now on week 3. My insulin has dropped from 96 units at bedtime to 12 units already. I am off one of my pills for my diabetes and I think by time my surgery is here I may be off all of my diabetes meds. I have lost 25lbs and I am so excited to have this done. Good luck :-) Val

Good luck with your surgery! My diabetes was about 40 units daily but I wasn't a good diabetic. Probably should've been higher insulin intake. Luckily my body remembered how to make insulin and I've been diabetes free since 2 days post op. My highest sugar intake now is Greek yogurt and diluted apple juice. My biggest motivations are keeping the diabetes away and shopping. I'm on soft foods now so can't really graze but don't want to even test that habit again. This is a renewal for us, better to keep the old bad habits in the past.

        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.
