I am on my first day of the pre op diet. I am so proud of myself, I haven't cheated and I've wanted to multiple times. I know as the 2 weeks move along may get a little more difficult but hopefully I'll adjust. Anyone else with surgery date 8/28/2019. I have about 150 pounds to lose! Any advice or tips would be welcomed.

the first couple of days were the worst for me. Once your body goes into ketosis, it's not as bad.

Hi ,
I'm on my first pre op day and scared as hell weather I'll manage this .
My surgery is planned for 30.8.
I'm just two days behind you [emoji847]
I have a feeling that beginning won't be hard - first few days - but later on it will get difficult
Hopefully we will be successfull on this pre op journey

I agree with @catwoman7--the first days are the worst! Hang in there. Stay busy and drink busloads of Water, decaff black coffee, decaff green tea and your Protein Drinks. Also sugar free popsicles and a sf Jello per day. :)

It is not so bad , at least it wasn't today .
I'm allowed to drink Soups and Protein Shakes - but must keep my calorie intake to 1200 .
Right now I'm bothered by headache but I guess it is normal untill my body gets used to this
I will start taking Biotin and some good Vitamin and mineral combo tomorow just to keep my immune system in check
I even walked a few hours with my girl
We went in parks and she had fun
Hopefully tomorrow will be a success like today [emoji2]

The headache might be from carb withdrawal. I think i had one for the first couple of days

Yes , you are right
I have noticed it is normal in first days cause it is a huge difference in calorie intake and in makros it self .
But overall I'm holding quite well
Had no crisis so far or need to eat more than this
I'm struggling with Water ..
It is so hard to drink enough .
Thanks [emoji8]

Well my surgeon requested diet woth calorie intake 1200 - as long as I stayed in that range I can eat anything I want
But cause of easier calorie counting I'm in a full liquid diet with one meat - low or no carbs meal

It is hard in the beginning. I have did full liquid diet for first three - four days.
I had headache and felt weak in those first days
Good luck with your surgery and your journey

It is madness - just two more days until going to hospital - and four days until surgery [emoji27][emoji1] is it even possible that days are going by so fast [emoji23] good luck to you [emoji8]

I won't be going to the hospital until the day of surgery, and most likely will get discharged the next day.

Best of luck to you!

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

    • Crystalmoon

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
