Anyone have the EGD before surgery? I go on Monday and I am a nervous wreck! I had to get one as a little girl and I will never forget that procedure ???? I am more nervous abt this procedure than I am the surgery.

Did anyone demand to be put under?

I had one, it wasn't bad actually, but I kept swallowing so that was uncomfortable.

DS Surgery on 1/23 :)

@@zizi_tops I'm a Northern Girl myself, Connecticut to be exact!!! I was required to do a High Protein, Low Carb for two weeks then 2 or 3 days before surgery Clear liquid Diet... However, I'm probably do all Clear liquids starting Friday. I have my EGD scheduled on the 13th, so I figured since I can't eat or drink anything after midnight Thursday, what a better way to start off! When do you start your Pre-Op Diet?

I'm scheduled for February 15th. My doctor does not require any type of liquid diet or otherwise pre-surgery, but I'm thinking about doing one regardless, just to make the surgery safer (and to jump start my weight loss). Would any of you be willing to share what you're doing/did? I haven't yet met with the NUT (and I plan on picking her brain, too), but I'd love to hear from all of you as well.

Congratulations to everyone who's recently had surgery or are in the final stages of prep! :D I'm so excited for Feb 15th!

My preop diet isn't completely liquid it's 1 Protein shake 2 meals (4 oz lean meat 1 to 2 cups of veggies) the first week and 2 shakes one meal the second week. 64 oz of Water and if you're hungry they allow for a Fiber drink such as benefiber or Metamucil. I also do another Protein Shake if I'm still hungry, I have to stay between 1000-1200 cal and I use premier Protein Shakes, so not very many cal. In them. Hope this helps some! Good luck:)

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
