I'm jealous! I have to do 14 days clear liquids! Only thing getting me through is the hard boiled egg whites I'm allowed. Tomorrow is the halfway point though.



Wow good for you!!!! Just think of it this way... you've got a jump on me with the weight loss!!!

Keep strong! [emoji1320]

Thanks @LylaLovesCoffee how is your pre-op diet going after a week now? How was giving up coffee for you? I was a huge LOVER of coffee which I didn't even enjoy until about 28 then I became addicted thank God i'm over it and if I choose to add it later on it's allowed after 8 weeks I think need to re-read my nutrition notes but not sure I even want it. Maybe a single cup with splenda and Protein Powder?

When I went to my pre op class I asked about the coffee. They said I had to give up the Creamer. So I put my Protein Drink in it instead. They told me that was fine. After surgery though I'm only allowed 12 oz of coffee, which to my calculations comes up to 2 cups a day with my new tool, as long as I continue to put the Protein drink in it until I have to ween off of it. After that I'll figure out what I need to do next.

As for the pre op diet, they have me on a weight loss diet of a protein drink in the morning 4 to 6 oz of lean meat with non starchy vegetables for lunch and dinner with a snack in between meals of either cottage cheese, yogurt, protein drink, cheese sticks, or a Protein Bar. I don't start full liquids until Sunday. I've doing well with the first part so far, Next week should be the real test.

How is it going for you @confusedturtle3?

It's really interesting how much the pre op diet varies from surgeon to surgeon. I'm only required to do no carbs for the first 4 days and then liquids for 3 days prior to surgery.

I'll count myself lucky to only have to do 3 days of liquid




I had no requirement at all for a pre-op diet but I did a self imposed liquid diet for 3 days and lost 7 pounds in that time.

I've just barely woke up after 12 hours of sleeping post-op. Walked some laps around the ward. Now having some broth and Water.

How's your pain level? I think the first night is what I'm most worried about!

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
