I’m scheduled for the 22nd, but now my surgeon has decided he wants an endoscopy first and that dr can’t get me in before that. I’m going to have to hope for a cancellation to be able to keep my surgery date. I hate all this not knowing!

Mixed feelings here as well! I’m trying not to think about the actual surgery or I may panic. But I’m excited overall.

My pre-op appt is less than a week before my surgery. I won’t know about Vitamins or anything until then. Kinda annoyed because I’m a planner! I know I’ll be on full liquids by day 4 but I want a list so I can have a few things on hand. Oh well, trying to be patient.

Leigh - Did you decide for NF or for Shands? I have my RNY with Dr. Friedman at Shands on Jan 2.

I have tried doing the pre op diet several times, though not completely if that makes sense? I initially started the diet as a way of getting used to the way I would have to be eating prior to the surgery and after since the diets are very similar. Basically what my nutritionist wanted me to do was do the vlcd for two weeks at a time and then go back to just a normal low calorie diet. Each and every time I had trouble with bowel movements, particularly with constipation. It seems like I will have to grab some sort of medicine to help with that as well since it's already starting with the latest run of the pre op diet. :/

They instructed me to take some over the counter meds, but things may be different here in Finland as far as what kinds of drugs are available for constipation. All I know is what I have at the moment tastes putrid, but I'll drink it if I have to, lol.

Doctors in the US and Canada push Milk of Magnesia like it was the Golden Grail. My particular Primary care loves to advise Miralax that and prednisone, a wonder I haven't developed Bushings from it.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
