Today is day six of the two week pre op diet and I a have to tell you I don’t think I have ever gone this long with out Peanut Butter! I am craving it so bad. Ice pops are definitely not Peanut Butter. I think if I see one more tv commercial about Reese’s peanut butter cups I may come unglued. I am waiting 15 minutes for my show to record a little bit so I can fast forward the commercials and then I will be in happy land for a little bit watching YELLOWSTONE. I loooove this show. I am Team Rip all the way! Lol. 8 more days to go. Hopefully they go fast! Hopefully everyone is doing good and managing there diets. Stay safe all! Good night!

It is almost July! Let the countdown begin! I go back to my hematologist tomorrow for a second round of Iron infusions. Never thought Id be excited to see my hemoglobin levels.

I do not have a preop diet. However, I will begin one about 2 weeks before my surgery on 7/23.

Good luck everyone.

My VSG is this Thursday! July 2nd. This is day 5 of my liquid diet and it gets better. I've had a constant headace that I've been chasing around my head since Day 1. I have a question. I did the swallow test last week and the radiologist told me that I had reflux. I'm so worried now. I have read that VSG post op can struggle with reflux and I'm just scared that I'll have a lot of post op problems. I'm wondering am I signing up for life long problems? I've called my doctor's office and will hear back after they read the report today.

If anyone has this experience please let me know.

Also is anyone having this surgery with a lower bmi? My BMI was 35 at the beginning. I've lost 6 pounds in 4 days so it is a little lower now. Some people have said I don't need this... Well I started 5 years ago at 245 and now I'm at 202 but I haven't been able to lose below that for over 2 years. That's why I'm having this surgery.

I guess I'm in a little bit of a panic right now.

I hear you. I also have gerd and they did find I have a Hiatal hernia that moves up and down in my chest so they need to fix it also and I asked my surgeon the same thing and he said I should be fine. I think that I will just go with it and see. Worst case I have to go for bypass surgery. I choose to think positive about this one. Only time will tell . 🤞

I was also down 10 in the first 6 days of the pre-op diet! Embarrassing confession...I made my husband hide the scale yesterday so I would stop obsessively weighing myself. I *might* have OCD. 😂

Look into peanut butter Protein powder:) it is awesome when mixed with the protein shakes... may help :)

down 7lbs in day 5 ... never thought I’d make it past day 2 after Diet Coke caffeine withdrawal. But thanks to the posts here I pushed through it. Preop on Wed and surgery next Wednesday. Finally here and I am so excited!

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
