Well good luck this week! I don’t know if I could have done that long of a pre-op! I had my band put in Friday, and I’m still Clear Liquids. I’m really excited to get to the Soup stage! Oh, and my liver appeared in the after pics to be pretty good! I also had a pretty significant hiatal hernia that had to be repaired, so my pain level is higher than expected. :(

I had a significant repair too! The pain lessens in a few days! At 13 days out I don’t feel any pain from it at all now I just feel sometimes when I swallow it’s like a little restriction almost where they suture it. Hard to explain the feeling lol

Hi, I’m one week into my pre op liquid diet and I’m already down 9lbs. Three Protein Shakes a day and lots and lots of Water. The liquid diet is not as bad as I feared, I think staying super busy house shopping has helped. I haven’t had the time to miss food, lol. My surgery is July 31st. I cannot wait, I’m nervous yet very excited!!! So many new things in store for me 💕

Hi, there Surgery sibling :) I am having RNY on the 31st. I had issues on day 3 with liquid diet, but it is getting better, and you are correct keeping busy helps. I'm not paying too much attention to the scale because... I started my journey in October and took a break in Feb. due to a job promotion and new grand daughter and I gained 14 lbs in the 3 months I was on pause from the program, then at the end of last month I broke my foot, so I've been in a boot not getting much exercise. I would just be happy to get back down to my October weight. But I'm still smaller than my highest weight ever so there is that. I am right there with you on the nervousness and excitement. I am sure this week is going to fly bye.

Well, I am July 31 - RNY and Pouch revision or "tune up", as I like to call it. I was worried that I would be too late for the July group, so I was also going to follow with the August group. My pre op appointment is July 29th where the Internist will review my test results before giving the final go-ahead for the 31st. I am doing well on the pre-op diet, and have lost about 10 pounds in the past month total. My tests show a fatty liver so I am really following the protocol closely.

So if it is not too late, Please include me. I have met all the requirements for surgery already, in terms of test results so I am pretty sure it will be a go ahead.

I really would like to be involved in the post surgery followup, to see how you are all doing!

Hi there, I am also on the 31st. I am 5 days into my liver shrinking diet, it was tough on day 3 but the closer it gets to surgery day the easier it will be. I hope all goes well on the 29th and you get approved for the 31st. We will be surgery siblings. I am also having RNY. Can you explain what a Pouch revision is?

The surgeon will not know what he is going to do until he looks. I had an endoscopy recently, and all looks healthy, but the surgeon was a gastroenterologist and could not tell me if I had stretched the pouch. I just know I can eat a lot of food at one sitting. The goal will be to reduce the capacity. If he can, indeed, reduce the capacity that may be all we do. If not, he will modify my RNY so that a greater length of intestine is bypassed. Mine was a short bypass, done 20 years ago. Really not as effective as what they are doing now.

Good luck with this pre surgical diet! My only problem is that I go to sleep hungry. Not something I have done in many, many years.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

      1. lvidacovich

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      3. FluffyChix

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.
