In schedule for August 28, 2018 , less then a month away. My liquid diet starts on the 14th. I’m very excited but I’m not gonna lie... I’m nervous and anxious about the surgery.

I dont have any liquid diet to do. Surgeon uses a liver retractor device and likes his patients to have good nutrition b4 surgery. Idk but the surgeons are all VERY different .

That's interesting. I have the feeling they just want my system cleaned out so there is nothing in my tummy for surgery. I am glad I don't have to do weeks of it!

My best friend had her gastric sleeve done Oct 25th last year. I offered to stay with her the night she got home from the hospital but she declined the offer. A couple of days later she was already driving. She has a high tolerance for pain too so I think you'll be fine if you don't have anyone to stay with you. I would just have a family member or good friend who you can call to come if something unforeseen happens.

Thank you EasternNC!

As for the liquid liver reducer diet, I asked the nurse for my surgeon if I had to do a week long liquid diet and her answer is classic:

"No, we assume that if you're fat so is your liver. It doesn't impede the surgery."

I like people who tell it straight and have a sense of humor.

New here! I was lap banded years and years ago and had success. But alas, the band slipped. I year without the band now and very much in need of a revision.

Surgery scheduled for 8/22. Preop diets starts in 8 days.

Looking forward to getting to know you.

Hi all :) My surgery is Aug 6th so I will be preparing the house and getting everything ready for me to come home to after surgery this weekend. I have been kind of nesting already if that makes sense. I just know I will worry about something needing to be accomplished if I don't do it all now. I think i'm more worried about that then surgery lol!

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
