What are you guys doing for your pre-op diet? I started mine this week...a bit early but I was treating every day like it was the last supper so I thought "enough". Also, I'm having revisionary surgery as I already have a gastric band, so I want to make sure my insides are as prepared as can be :D I'm on milk and greek yoghurt. Day 4 and I'm finding it OK.

I had my lapband removed September 15. I'm doing Protein Shakes, sugar free Jello, sugar free popsicles, blended Soups, and tons of Water.

Hi peggilyn, did you consider having band removal and sleeve done at the same time? How long had you had the band? Mine has been in 12 years. I’m worried that there’ll be too much scar tissue so might be a risk the sleeve can’t be done at the same time, or that I’ll have a “big” sleeve at the top to divert from the scar tissue.

Happy Birthday and Happy Rebirthday all in one, this will make the rest of July anticlimactic. Best of everything now and in the future.

My band was removed in September 2015 because it was cutting circulation off to the top 1/3 of my stomach. I have a good bit of scar tissue but can have the sleeve done. I'm nervous about my surgery, but am beyond ready to have it done!

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
