Wow that is a trip! Very cool that we are all having surgery the same day and have the same name. We can all get healthy together [emoji1377]. Have you started you’re pre-op diets?


Have a great day!

I've been on mine for a little over a week. My isn't really too terrible. 2-3 Protein Shakes and 2 small meals of lean Protein and veggies per day. Lots of Water. No added sugar or carbs. No caffeine. No carbonation. I start my 3 day Clear Liquids on Saturday though [emoji51]

Hang in there, it is really tough. Today was the first day for liquid diet pre-op (my procedure will be on 11/28/17 and I felt hypoglycemic...I’ve been taking Kefir, broth, coffee, two Protein Drinks and cucumbers. Good idea on popsiclesł! Thanks! Don’t despair, change is not easy to come by but you, we, all of us will get there. You can do this!

You guys are inspiring. My surgery is Monday, Nov 20th. The pre-op diet is so hard, which is why diets don't work, right? I'm just hoping that cravings subside post-surgery. While we can't physically eat, those urges are tough.

So my surgery (sleeve) is on nov 21st and liquid diet started on Monday. There hasn’t been a day that I went with out cheating it’s so hard when you still have to cook and prepare food for everyone in the house. I have 8 days to get it together! Boyfriend keeps coming home with take out like his tempting me on purpose


What others have said, you have to shrink your liver. If your liver is too swollen the surgeon could abort the procedure out of safety concerns. I am sure you do not want that. Stay focused, stay strong, keep motivated, focus on the goal. I had to remind myself that I had eaten enough pizza, fast food and China buffets to last a lifetime. Had to get it together before my surgery.

That sounds good. I am also supposed to stay away from carbonation now and after surgery. I’m not a big soda drinker so that wasn’t a problem but I would love to be able to have veggies. I made cabbage Soup hoping I could eat it during this phase but they said no. I’m glad you are doing so well, great job [emoji1360]


Have a great day!

Oh you need all the support you can get so definitely have a talk with him

im so dreading the pre-op liquid diet

pre-op diet length will depend on my BMI 2 weeks before surgery. I’m between 43-45 BMI at the moment

if its 45 or less then its a week of clear liquids only *horrified*

if its over 45 then its two weeks of clear liquids + one meal of lean Protein and veggies a day

I feel for everyone that has to do a liquid diet! Omg! I have pretty much been on my pre op diet since April, because I had alot to lose anyway and was on a 1500 Cal diet the whole time. Everyone stick to the plan, fight the urges because I know it is hard! You are almost at the finish line to get your surgery!

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
