LZN2512 they told me to add Water to cut the sweetness. I was doing the same thing. I was just trying to chug it because I couldn’t stand how sweet they are but the water help a little. I started getting headaches too but I think mine is caffeine withdrawal.

I drink mine with flavored Decaf and it’s so much better. You can play around with the flavors.

Hi Guys, Have my surgery scheduled for this Friday, getting nervous now. Having it done in the UK so flying out tomorrow morning for pre-op in the afternoon. Coming to the end of this 2 week pre-op diet. Ive been on a low cal low carb diet which has been tough but ive lost a good 8kilos on it so far.

Cant wait to be on the other side if this. Surgery date is 11/30/2018 falling between two threads so will be involved in both.

@Myhorseisfattoo, have you started your pre-op diet yet? This is my second day and I'm feeling quite cross with everyone and everything.

Would anyone be able to draft up a list of people in this thread and their surgery date? I may be able to do it later on today, but I saw it in a November thread and thought it would be nice. :)

Day 2,3,4 are the worst of the liquid/pre op diet I thought I was having a stroke on day 3. Just goes to show how real a drug sugar is.

My surgery is tomorrow just finished pre op today. A mix between excited and nervous now.

I see that you may not be in the United States, but we have a place here called Bonchon that has delicious Korean fried chicken. My coworkers ordered that last night and the smell was mesmerizing. A lot of my coworkers know about my surgery so they didn't offer it and tried to be as quiet about eating it as possible, but I was kind of sad and angry at myself. What's funny is that I knew this is how I was going to feel but the brain is kind of an a*****e sometimes right?

I am excited and nervous with you too! You are going to do a fantastic job! :)

You scoundrel and your one week pre-op diet! :D :D

Pre-anesthesia? How did that work out? I had pre-op testing the other day, but just to check that my body was in a condition for surgery.

Getting sleeved in the UK but was born in Boston. The mind plays awful tricks on you. Two days ago, 12 days in to my pre op diet my dad had a bowl of cornflakes and I thought id have ti restrain myself as I wanted a bowl so bad. Somehow resisted. This is going to take all the mental power we have to get the results were looking for.

Focusing on the reasons I want to loose weight to get me through. Back pain heart arrythmias and living my fullest life.

We got this.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
