You're welcome. I printed it out and used it as a Bible. For some reason post op I just kept getting confused with what I could have and when. Think it was the anaesthetic! Lol. Keep us updated x

BTW....post op wind pain can be awful. In the Alex they give you peppermint tea but it doesn't work. From getting home I got peppermint cordial (from tesco in the alcohol aisle). A warm glass first thing in the morning got rid of any wind for the day and really helped getting fluids down. I still have a glass every morning.

Be had my pre op appointments your were right guys the staff at the Alex are wonderful. Gave me so much confidence. Bring on Tuesday!

Ps. I can't believe how different the plan is to what I read from the US. Especially around Protein shakes.

I agree the UK diet is very different than the US. They do lots of Protein shakes and I've been told to eat normal and cut back. I've lost 11lbs in 7 days which is great pre-op. 8 days to go til surgery!!

Does anyone know if Bassetts chewable Multivitamins are good enough for sleevers?

I'm two weeks away from the big day and stocking up. I'm a Brit actually living in Singapore but as there is no support here, I hope you don't mind me following the Brit sleevers group.

I'm getting a friend to bring me any stuff I need from the UK (Boots/ Holland & Barrett). Is there anything else I need to stock up on ?

Thanks for your advice.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
