Started my liquid diet today. It's ok so far. I know now that I can't have chicken broth for Breakfast. Not enough substance. I'll stick to my shakes early in the morning.

So ive been on my Pre op diet for like 4 weeks. I had gained some weight and needed to get back down so I did Atkins induction. Today I wake up week as hell. Turns out I might have a Iron deficiency meaning my primary care doc will tell surgeon and I may not be able to have surgery if my numbers are too low or don't bounce back by time my clearance date which is Monday next week. I hope everything is OK. Has anyone experienced low iron and has it impacted your surgery.

I'm scheduled for my Band to Sleeve revision on October 3rd!! Super excited!! The ultrasound also showed that my gallbladder is full of stones so that is coming out at the same time. I'm a little apprehensive of the extensiveness of all the procedures, but am hopeful that everything will go ok and that I'll heal quickly. I have a baby that will be turning one a week after my surgery....so I feel like I can't be down for too long. I will take as long off of work as the short-term disability allows me to, but try to take it easy at home. Good luck October Sleevers!

Well now I'm officially thirty days away. Thinking about all of us October sleevers and I know we can do this! We've all been on our journeys that brought us to this point, but we have our whole lives ahead of us, and we'll be living those lives healthier and thinner. Great to have everyone on here sharing and caring. Some of you are coming up very soon. I'm thinking about you!

OMG ! I read a post here last night in regards to a surgeon putting off surgery until she quit smoking, he wanted her off for 6months. I have not had a "cig" in over 10 yrs and recently (3wks ago) started doing the electronic ones-stopped my stress eating. What a dummy ! When I called my dr office about it. They said they require totally nic free for 3months, but they would talk to him. Thing is he's on vc and not available til Sept 30. 2 days before surgery! Shoot I don't even do it that much and its only 6mg. My pre ops are tomorrow and I start my liquid diet, with surgery scheduled for Oct 1st. I don't know what I'd do if it gets cancelled or postponed .

Sometimes it just doesn't pay to have questions or be honest. :((

        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.
