Hi all 🙂
I need to prep for a revision for next week. I have my old “sleeve” paperwork... is it different you think? Surgeons office said 2 weeks liquid but I did not do that last time with my nutritionist. 🤦🏻‍♀️ (who I’ve called and emailed and don’t have time to go see her again).
My surgical coordinator is on vacation, so can’t ask him.
Process was started 8-10 weeks ago and day before pre surgeon testing, last Thursday, they denied my revision. I appealed it and 48 hours later it was over turned. Thank God. But now I’m behind The eightball with the liquid diet. This GERD and hernia is horrible. All day non stop GERD. Doing double dose of meds per the surgeon for months now. So, here I am. Unsure if I should start Vitamins again, good ones etc.
I chew on some gummies when I remember (I know, my bad).
Unsure if they are going in lap or endo to do revision. I guess I could call and find out. Suggestions?
I have Protein Shakes and broth. Jello and pudding too. Ice pops.

If your surgeon has said 2 weeks liquid then you do 2 weeks liquid. They are the one that is responsible for keeping you alive , following the instructions they have given you should be a no brainer

What are you talking about? I’ve left the band??? What!? Just a worker in the office, due to the coordinator being on vacation, she said 2 weeks.
You don’t need to be rude “no brainer”.

Don't assume rudeness when none was intended. You did say "Surgeons office said 2 weeks liquid" which is easily construed as the surgeon's instructions. It looked like you were trying to avoid the liquid diet. Sorry we misinterpreted your post. Good luck with tour revision. I hope they give you very clear directives going forward.

May I recommend a book to you? Success Habits of Weight Loss Surgery Patients by Colloon M. Cook.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
