Hi! My name is Tiffany. I am a 50 year old mom of 3 adult kids. I had the lap band from 2005-2012. Never lost weight. Followed the program to the letter. My doc used to guilt me and tell me I was his only “failure”. He didn’t even offer me the choice of revision when I had the band removed. Unfortunately I’ve been misinformed for the past 7 years. People told me I couldn’t have another bariatric surgery after failing one. My PCP moved and I mentioned it to my new doc and she told me I could indeed have another bariatric surgery. I’m an oncology RN that has been disabled since 2012. All of my visits are done, I’m waiting for the surgeons office to call with a date, but he thinks the end of June. Not, by the way the same surgeon!!

Tiffany,

Welcome to the June Bunch. You are in the company of some awesome folks (myself included🤣🤣). OK, I might be bias. Let's hope they call you... and soon.

Well Everyone,

I am back from my Pre-op Education Class.

Pre-Op Diet

1 Week Before Surgery

3-4 whey Protein Shakes per day, mixed with Water.

They recommended Premier but I am open to any suggestions from my "new" family here.

(Per scoop) Protein: 20-30 grams

Fat: 5 grams or less

Sugar: 5 grams or less

Day Before Surgery:

Clear liquid Diet:

  • Low Sodium chicken broth
  • Decaf Tea or coffee (no cream or lemon)...... Pray for me, I LOVE International Delights chocolate Caramel 😮
  • sugar free non-carbonated beverage such as Crystal Light, Wylers or flavored waters such as Propel
  • Water

Next is the meeting with surgeon on Thursday morning. My time is coming and soon......... Come on June 3rd

Subsonic,

Looks like we have the same surgery date. When will you be starting your diet? 2 weeks out or 1 week out?

Glad to see some new June people! Welcome!

Question - does anyone else have to give up coffee for a bit? On my plan I'm not allowed to have coffee for three months post-op. 😭😭 In addition to the caffeine my nutritionist said that it is also the acidity they are concerned with. I'm now drinking half-caff in the morning to prepare for no caffeine but this is going to be tough! I like the taste of coffee and it is my morning routine! Herbal teas, which she said were ok, are just not going to cut it! LOL

I had to give up caffeine altogether (among other things). I haven't inquired whether Decaf is ok post-op, but I'm guessing I'll wait a while regardless due to the acidity... don't want to disrupt my pouch... *pout* My team said the big concern in general with caffeine is dehydration post-op, since it's hard to get in your fluids each day and yeah, that checks out. Pre-op I've allowed myself the occasional decaf, but as a caffeine addict, it was really hard to switch... I've adjusted, but I still miss it!

Ugh is anyone else going off the rails a little?! I've been eating foods that are so shitty for me after doing amazing on my diet for the last 6 months. I'm supposed to start my 2 week liquid diet on June 5th BUT I'm going to do a 3 or 4 week liquid or low carb diet to get back on track. I plan on starting that this coming Sunday.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
