I’m thinking of creating a Facebook Group for inspiration, so we can share our journey, post recipes, ask advice and of course to post results! Would anyone be interested in joining?

I'd like some advice...

My doctor doesn't require a pre-op diet. But I'm on a clear liquid 2 weeks following then liquid for 4 weeks. Total of 6 weeks liquid. When on Clear Liquids what did you all drink? Any suggestions for Proteins and clear liquids. I think I need to order some things. I'm pretty much going to be on my own. Any suggestions appreciated. Also, Vitamins? which ones did you all like?

I agree with newlifeat40 about making it a secret group. Please let us know what you and others think?

How are you doing? Thinking of you and everyone else who has already had theirs done!

What Vitamins are you all going to take?

Sent from my SM-G930U using BariatricPal mobile app



I'm going to continue my Multi Vitamins I the morning and crush them, as well as powdered magnesium which I dissolve in Water every evening. Also Omega 3, Calcium, and Biotin for my hair. I don't take calcium with the multi vits, but later in the day.. I have osteopenia so have to keep my intake of calcium etc. up.

I’m doing alright thank you! Some pain, bloating which is to be expected but overall, so far so good! Keeping a constant positive mind will help!

I would recommend trying a few different clear Protein Drinks before your surgery. I’m sorry to say that I find them to be soapy and very hard to drink. I threw out the Premier Protein clear one. I’m struggling through the Isopure. I only have to drink clear liquids the day before, the day of, and the day after my surgery. But try and find one you can tolerate.

I'd love a secret group too!!

I'm scheduled for Monday the 8th and got stuck in LA today due to the storm coming at home (Boston). I begged the uber guy to stop at a drug store so I could buy Protein drinks. Lol My pre-op testing was supposed to be tomorrow but clearly that won't be happening. My surgeon's office is great though, they are going to try and get me in on Friday (I'm taking red-eye home tomorrow hopefully) or worst case the morning of surgery. They said it's not not ideal but they would try and work with me. Such a relief!! I was bawling in the airport when they said yes flight was cancelled.
