Hi, I'm new here. I'm scheduled for 2/19 but am still on the fence about which procedure. I need to make up my mind really soon!

That’s awesome! We are surgery twins. I am having the RNY here in Richmond,VA. Where are you located? What is keeping you from deciding?

Hi :) Suburban Boston. I've been with my bariatric center for a year. I think its fear. I've had a few co occurring medical issues I was focusing on and those have mostly been addressed. I really need to do some deep thinking over the next few days...

So what is yall's Pre-op diet? I feel like mine is weird. They just said low cal, low carb, and high Protein for 10 days prior and nothing to eat or drink after midnight the day of. I just think it's weird cause almost everyone else has to do some sort of liquid diet prior to surgery.

I was also told this too. This is the only part that I’m actually worried about. Surgery and post surgery I’m not the least bit concerned..I just want to make sure that I eat properly within the post op guidelines.

I keep reading about people that cheat during their pre-op which impacts their liver not shrinking down, and will be denied surgery at time of operation.

I plan on doing 2 Protein Shakes a day and small low- carb meal in the evening.
And lots of Water lol.

@Puffy-no-more I have to order certain products form Protifoods.com and start that 2 weeks prior to surgery. Hope it tastes okay!
