I would love to be your buddy. I am scheduled for bypass Feb 21st. I am 5' 6" and at 312 now. Have an appointment this Friday to see nutritionist. According to their notebook I will be on Protein Shakes for 4 weeks pre-op. I already have approval from my insurance but my surgeon is really booked out hence the Feb 21 date.

I’m also feb 21st! 5’7 & 328 lbs

I've got my insurance approval and a surgery date of Feb. 15, as long as everything goes according to plan at my final appointment on Jan. 30 with my lab work and all that.

I’m having gastric bypass surgery.



I'm doing the sleeve. How are you feeling? I'm excited but very anxious.

Good luck to everyone.

What sort (if any) pre-op diets do you all have to do?

It's funny now that I'm trying to be diligent about the starch free that it seems to be everywhere and is more tempting!

@RunningLibrarian what's a starch-free diet? Just like a no-carb thing - no wheat, rice, potatoes, etc.?

Yeah.. only carbs from veggies and fruit.. No bread, (or breaded stuff), corn, potatoes, rice, peas.... that sort of thing. It's to shrink the liver so its easier for the doctor to lift to get at the stomach for the surgery.

Oh man, caffeine withdrawal is the pits! I gradually stepped down, then quit the caffeine when I first started with the program... I didn't want to go thru that and surgery stuff at the same time.
