Told not to lose weight before surgery



Recommended Posts

My surgery has not been scheduled yet but I was told by the nurse not to lose weight because I am so close to the lower limit. I started drinking more fluids got 50 ounces in yesterday so I am used to drinking. What diet can I follow with out losing weight.

Thanks

Lynda

I think it would be a good idea to cut out sugary drinks that you usually have. Practice chewing your food real well and even work on having your meals without drinks. Start tracking your food and get in the habit of doing that, as it's an important habit to have. I'm not sure what your current calorie goal should be preop to maintain your weight without losing... probably 2000 or so?

Thanks KCgirl061!

I will definitely cut out sugary! In the recent past I did the Whole 30 diet, so I think cutting some things won't be too hard. I am already a pro at chewing my food as this surgery will be a revision from a VBG to bypass.

Thanks,

Lynda

Ah! So you have a good handle on preparing it sounds like. I live on the Kansas side of KC but will be enjoying a family vacation at Lake of the Ozarks this time next month.

Me too. Went to my first three appt and was told not to lose ANY (stressed) not to lose a lbs of weight. Ugghh! This is hard to do, kinda. I want to start practicing to eat like I will have to for the rest of my life. I am proscribing chewing my food well. I am also learning to be mindful when I eat. Any other advice??

The funny thing is that when I went to my last pre op appointment they told me I was okay because I was having the surgery for other medical reasons so my weight didn't matter, ugh! I stressed so much trying to keep the scale from going down (it was hard) Turns out my gallbladder was not helping at the time. When is your surgery?

      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.
