5 Days before surgery (in Turkey)



Recommended Posts

Hi to everyone - never been part of a forum. American living in Brussels, and have found that much, good Medical Tourism, for my type of surgery, in Turkey. Surgery scheduled for Staurday, 11 January 2020. Seeking any last-minute advice, particularly best dietary advice that may have helped others, in the days before surgery. Doing mostly Atkins shakes, and Soups. FYI - total cost of surgery and seven days in Turkey (US$4,900). Surgeon has done over 700 gastric bypass surgeries.

Thanks AJ - looks like you have achieved a lot. Your advice is well taken. I think the moral support is mostly what I need, as all of this is new (except for the longstanding frustration over multiple failed diets).

How was your experience getting bariatric surgery in Turkey? Who was your Dr and what procedure did you have?

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
