I knew i was not a great candidate for sleeve because of reflux but I was thinking RNY because I didn't understand what MGB was. My surgeon suggested Mini Gastric bypass. I believe he prefers it because there is only one anastamosis and I'm thinking any time you can do a simpler surgery there is less risk of complications and that seemed like a good thing to me. After I researched it a bit, I was happy with his recommendation.

This was a great idea! Thank you for posting this. :) Just curious, anybody not doing the liquid diet before surgery, what kind of foods are you eating to prep for the surgery? Just wondering if it's better to go ahead and start incorporating the Protein Shakes, etc now. I'm 14 days from surgery, feeling excited and nervous.

My nutritionist has me doing liquids 2 weeks before (mostly shakes but allowed one small meal of 3 oz. of meat, cup of veggies and 1/2 cup starch). They tell everyone to do it, regardless of weight, in order to shrink the liver. I've been watching what I'm eating since beginning of July because I didn't want the liquid diet to be a crazy shock. Now that I'm 5 weeks away, I'm all of the sudden fighting the urge to have McDonald's and other things. I say (on no authority, lol), it couldn't hurt.

Best of luck :) We'll all do great!

@Cherylmilla It probably can't hurt to have mcdonalds, lol. Just get it out of your system. For the past two weeks I've done the liver shrinking diet the surgeon gave me. It does allow for 1 cup of veggies and 4 oz of lean meat. Doing powdered shakes the rest of the time. I I had to have taco bell a few weeks ago and that was when I thought I was denied. I started eating wtf i wanted but last Tuesday I got the go ahead and now sticking to the two week pre-op.

@Msbosse I started the liquid diet last Wednesday and messed up the first day by choosing a yogurt with too much carbs. Got back on it. My other mess up but it was sort of planned was last Friday was hubbys birthday. we went out to eat. I did have a 4 oz steak and a side salad. It was a little more than the 1 cup of veggies and 4 oz of lean meat my pre-op diet allows. Yesterday I had a handful of nuts. Tomorrow is officially one week before surgery going to really work to not have one slip up.

I'm more upset is that I still have this cough that won't go away even after medicine. I have bronchitis and doctors won't give me antibiotics which I know will help and have prescribed me prednisone which has made me feel better but still coughing up junk.
