Hello, I have just joined the forum today and starting to feel a little overwhelmed. I am due to have my gastric by pass in the UK on 23rd July. Would love to join your group and have some support with what everyone else is going though. I have also hidden this from my family (apart from my husband) as I want to protect my son from what I am doing. Told people I am having my gall bladder removed!! I have been told to start a liver shrinkage diet three weeks before the op. I haven't really started preparing anything yet apart from ordering the Vitamins.


Hi, I'm UK person too. Which hospital are you going to be in?
I'm at Chichester, I have my pre op on Wednesday. I'm paranoid about weighing more than I did at the MDT day in December!

Good Luck to you both from a distant American cousin. My ancestors came from York and Lancaster in the 1700s. But my Celtic red gold hair came from my paternal greatgrandmother, an Edinburgh lass named Mary Scott.👸

Mine is set for July 25th, too! It looks like I have a ventral hernia though, so I may have to reschedule if I want the doc to fix that, too. He's got multiple surgeries that day, so I'm thinking he may need more time. Seeing him again in a couple of weeks to discuss that.


Good luck! Praying for you!

Yay you and I are getting them close to the same time I fell off the map in April, where are you getting yours done? Are you going OSU or Riverside?

OSU-DrNeedleman unless Dr Nor is has an opening sooner, that's what I told Jessica. Only thing slowing me down is they need electronic documentation of C Pap compliance, would have had it already if PCP hadn't advised against usage due to persistent sinusitis. That broke my pefect record, so July 2 it will be faced in and then the ball is totally in their court, everything is completed and complied with. Hey I do have a BariPal with Riverside also , she isn't going with Sonnestein, the other guy. Why can I never remember his name? Maybe I really do have CRS***. At any rate she's in early days EDS of maybe October-November, told her I would be her bud all the way through. Seems like a nice kid, yeah when you're old as Moses everyone seems younger. Anyhoo,everyone I've met art OSU has been super nice, helpful and seems to sorta like me. Yes excellent taste on their,part.
You,know I can hardly wait for,my day of Rebirth, at,least that's what my bud ALFxRNY in Connecticut and I call it. And our futures start from,there😛!

      Creating a small Nov hydration challenge in MFP, details soon...

      I'm going to hit my stall now. I can tell, because 1) almost everybody stalls when they start moving on to real foods, in addition to the liquids, and 2) I'm at 302 pounds, lol, and the scale knows I want to see the 2 in the first digit.
      I'm fine. It's not going to freak me out or really even upset me. Honestly, I could stand the reconfiguration of inches that always comes with a stall, for me.
      I'm posting here in between bites of refried beans, which (knock on wood) seem to be going pretty well for me, so far. I'm so happy. Between ricotta (with a little sauce and a little seasoning) and refried beans (with a very small amount of low-fat cheese melted in), I can live without chewable foods for a pretty long time. (I'm also eating yogurt and ricotta cheese.) I do want to upgrade to the ricotta bake, because it has better protein and might cut down the number of protein shakes I need in a day. It's probably a bit more firm than ricotta alone, so I held off at first, but I think it's time, don't you? Plus, my spouse can put it over pasta and enjoy it with me.
      I'm eating 2.5 ounces of ricotta in a serving and maybe that much in beans? (this is my first attempt, but that's how much I served myself) I can eat 4 ounces of Greek yogurt in half an hour, which feels like a lot before the 2 week anniversary of my surgery. But I still haven't really figured out my body's "full" signal. I felt a little sick and stopped eating, one time, which made me think I'd overdone it. Other times, I just take tiny bites, sometimes a few minutes apart, for half an hour. And then I refrigerate or throw out what's left, because that was the guidance the nutritionists gave me. But other people talk about a sore shoulder or something as their signal, and I haven't found that yet.
      I guess it'll come with time and practice.

        Prediction: ACCURATE! I was up .2 this morning. Here's hoping my thighs are smaller after this stall, so I can finally wear smaller pants. (The waists of pants that "fit" are too loose, but the thighs are still tight. And belts are uncomfortable on my incisions.)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Don't talk yourself into a stall. They're common, but not everyone has them early on. I honestly haven't had one yet. I've only had 3 "up" weeks in almost 8 months and none of them was from a stall. (One was from vacation, two were recovering from losing 13 lbs in 10 days because I was prescribed too much diuretic and ended up dehydrated in the er ☹️) You're unique, just let it go.

        It is early for you to recognize a "full" signal. Pretty much all the foods you're eating right now are sliders that just pass through your pouch. Other than the refried beans, most of them won't stay long enough to trigger a "fullness" feeling. Don't worry, it will come. You're doing great!

      3. CrankyMagpie

        If it's a stall, it's only in comparison to the ridiculous speed with which I lost during immediate pre- and post-op. I'm still down like half a pound from when I posted this. (Half a pound in four days is slow for this stage of the journey, but it's still good!)

        Thanks for the reassurance! It's good to be told I'm doing well. ❤️

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Yeah, we love that non-linear weight loss when we have a 4-pound week. Not so much with a 1/2-pound week. I only weigh twice a week (and only write it down on Saturday) in an attempt to keep the insecurity monster at bay 😉

      211!!! Randomly super excited to have read that on the scale this morning! It almost doesn't feel real!

      Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

        I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      2. GreenTealael

        Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...

        YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!

    • GreenTealael

      Alright. No more adulting. Burned my nose, broke my espresso maker (officially), stubbed my toe, and cracked my phone screen all before 8am.
      Going back to bed.

        I'd definitely be done for the day! Back under the covers and Netflix for sure!

        At least you didn't break your nose and burn your espresso maker.
