I'm scheduled for 4/12... pre op diet starts this Wednesday for me.. I've stocked up on 6 cases of Premier Protein (choc., van., Cookies & cream). I also got 2 cases of clear premier Protein waters. I got vanilla whey Protein Powder, a unflavored Protein powder & PB2. A ton of chicken broth & sugar free jellos & puddings. As for Vitamins I got chewable Multivitamins, chewable Calcium & chewable Iron which my nutritionist said I had to get, I also picked up chewable Biotin in case of hair loss. I also have a NutriBullet, I hate most veggies & fruits but I find if I pulverized them I can drink them. I'm actually starting to get a bit nervous now it's fast approaching! Good luck to you, good luck to all of us!!!

My surgeon said that as long as we make sure to get at least 100mg of protein in us every single day we should never have to deal with Hair loss. If that is true I am at a relief for sure on that one

Hello All,

I'm scheduled on April 27th and on the pre-surgery diet. I've ordered my Protein Shakes and supplements through VITALEPH. They have pre and post surgery kits which come with Protein Powder and supplements. It is a bit expensive but I figure I won't be eating no where near what I have been so it offsets the cost.

I've selected to have my surgery with Dr. Ariel Ortiz from the Obesity Control Center in Mexico. Would love to find others who will be there as well. I'm going to stay another day...just in case :)

I really need for someone to please tell me if sugar alcohols are allowed in pre- op. No one can tell me. My sugar free Protein Bars have them in them and I just realized it and it's after hours

Yess... It does say that I am permitted artificial sugars. So I evidently can exhale. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Do you know that no one out there in this world has heard of this like all the pharmicists in my area. That was a serious SCARE

Yes. I add it to my Water. I also am drinking caffeine free tea iced. I get bored of water too. I’m on day for of my 2 week liquid diet. I’m using Premier Protein. It’s ready made and tastes pretty good.

Interesting. The diets seem a bit different depending on the surgeon. I don’t have a bowel prep that I know of. I guess they could spring that on me at my preop appt on the 4th. I am just supposed to do 2 weeks of 3 Protein supplements a day to equal 600 calories and 1 meal of 400 calories max...just 3 oz of lean protein meat and 1 piece of fruit. Plus 64 oz of Water and a Multivitamin. Are you experiencing Hair loss with the restrictive diet?

I would love some fruit or meat, I think I just want something to chew. I can have cottage cheese or Jell-O but the cottage cheese only up to 3 times a day and Greek lowfat yogurt up to 3 times a day. So far I haven't noticed any Hair loss and I don't start taking Vitamins until a week after surgery. I also have dreads so I only wash my hair about 1-2 times a week and don't brush it.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
