How long do you have to be on the pre-op diet? It really seems everyone has something different. I am having a last big meal. My birthday is june 13 and I won't be able to eat so my family is coming over, we will order in and I'll have one piece of cake. A combo celebration of birthday/finally getting surgery and managing the pandemic as best we could.

Only three days liquid liver diet. It's odd how all the pre and post op instructions vary. Just finished chatting with a bypass patient who is allowed to have Peanut Butter 14 days post op. I thought that sounded a lot better than my clear liquid week, full liquid week, pureed food week, then soft foods for 2 weeks etc. Enjoy that cake!! That's something I really need to get my head around. No sweet treats ever?? Or you dump? OOf.

I had to cancel my surgery for unseen circumstances. Now I have a new date. June 6th leaving the 5th..going to Mexico bariatric clinic...i believe things happen for a reason. So far they seem to be more thuro on their process which makes me feel more confident in my decision.

How exciting! Bypass or Sleeve? Do you get to relax by the beach afterwards?

Woo Hoo! We're getting quite a group. Would love to know a little about each of you! Stats,Hopes. Fears and how you're preparing. etc I find youtube videos very helpful. There a woman called Minnie Me In Tennessee who did a video once a week from her pre-op appts to several years out. She tells it like it is. All the ups and downs. SO INSIGHTFUL. Check it out.

I love her too! Very honest about the process.

I’m 37, 5’7” and 285. I’d like to get back down to 160, which I maintained with ease in my 20s (before kids and a crummy thyroid).

The pre-op diet sucks, to be blunt. 5 Protein Shakes a day while I still cook for my kids and husband has been a true test of my willpower. Only 3 days left and I’m proud of myself. I drove home yesterday with an order of mozzarella sticks on my passenger seat (for husband) and my brain was literally screaming at me to eat them. 😂

I’m in Tiajuana right now. Have my VSG tomorrow. Very excited, not really nervous. Time to start this new life. I quit caffeine a couple months ago and dreaded giving up my Decaf coffee with cream, didn’t think I could do it. Started Clear Liquids yesterday, no problem. No problem today either. It’s all in the head. I had to do the 1 week pre op diet but I actually started it about 2 weeks ago and then got perfectly strict 9 days ago. Keto stripped my urine this morning and it was large meaning I’m in Ketosis which is very good because it means my liver has used up all the glycogen stores. I’ve been hungry these past two days due to the liquid diet and when my stomach starts grumbling I just down some Jello and hot tea or my lemon Water. Just an FYI for everyone when you do the liquid pre-op, absolutely make sure you get Bone Broth which has 10 grams of Protein. Protein is Very important for preventing muscle wasting, promoting healing and keeping you a little bit fuller.

How are you doing?

Good luck to the Class of June 2020. I had mine in July 2019 and it was the best decision I've ever made! I was almost 73 at the time and now 100 pounds down, no C-Pap, and knees are all better. Just go into this with an open heart, and I approached it as if my life depended on this, which it did and never looked back. Good luck on your journey.

Good luck sweetie.. Keep us updated please. I was originally scheduled for 3/25 got my little mind prepared for it and then boom, COVID. Was rescheduled for May 12th but couldn't get the time off from work so now I'm scheduled for 6/24. I'm nervous, scared and excited at the same time. Good luck and blessings to all of you.. Big hug from Puffin.
