I am going through my pre op stage I've had my ekg done my clearance from my pcp as well im just waiting to complete my 3rd nutrition class. Was anyone surgeon big on weight loss or gain before surgery because ive gained 5 pounds over the last two months im hoping that it wont delay surgery approval. they wont contact insurance until im complete with these classes so im just technically in a waiting stage.

My surgeon, and Bariactric Dr required a 2 week liquid Optifast diet prior to surgery. The main reason was to shrink your liver. It was hard but a good jump start. It helped to get you somewhat prepared.

Good luck!

My surgeon specifically said do not gain weight or he will not perform my surgery. Losing or maintaining my initial weight with him is fine.
