My RNY is 8/19/19 and this week I’m doing 1 meal & two shakes a day. 2 days before surgery... full liquids

Pre-op diet programs vary all over the map from many months (!) of liquids to nothing special at all; some will vary depending upon procedure or patient's BMI. Your doc only requiring for the VSG may indicate that he is quite comfortable doing the RNY, but less so doing the VSG. More typical is something on the order of what Chiptress is doing - a low calorie meal or two (lean meat and veg, or low cal frozen dinner) and a Protein Shake or two; the all liquid seems to be less common, but we hear a lot more about them because they are so objectionable.

My surgery is in October and I have 6 months of monitoring first. I haven’t really lost any weight. Am I suppose to lose weight before surgery?

Yes I've been told 3 weeks only liquids. shakes everyday to help the liver and lose a little weight as well for best chase of success with surgery but also it prepares you for when you have surgery and have to live on liquids for few weeks post op!

Yep. I have a 2 week pre-op diet and I’m RYN. 1st week is 2 Protein Shakes, 2 Snacks and a “lean and green” dinner, (3-4 ounces lean Protein and a cup or two of non-starch veg and of course Water. 2nd week is 5 protein shakes, plus the 64oz water.

I keep hearing everyone talk about a 2 week pre-op liquid diet. I was told by my Dr that is only for sleeve patients. Is anyone else scheduled for R&Y on or around Aug 29, and not on a liquid diet ?

I had a pre op liquid diet for my sleeve and my surgeon said it was to shrink my liver for the surgery because they did it laparoscopically.

Idk if that helps at all lol

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
