I am sorry to hear about the folks who had their surgies cancelled. I worry it may happen to many of us, as this month progresses..Crossing my fingers. Hang in there........

I hear may foks have two weeks of liquid diet. my surgeon and dietician has a reduced preop menu but not all liquids. 6oz of cook meet all white. 2 servings of vegetables with 3 meals and can have 3 more servings of fruits and vegetables. Perhaps folks that are cancelled can try that to stay on track. ( suggestion)\

I have my date the 21st I am so excited and scared.have any of you asked yourself.Why couldnt I do this without surgery?

I heard of all the cancellations and got worried, but have been assured by my surgeon that I am good to go. He stated he was fixing a hernia at the same time as the Gastric Bypass, so I won't be cancelled. 11 more days till surgery, getting excited to start this journey. The Pre-Op is not so bad when I think about it one day at a time and make the decision everyday to stay on track. Good luck to all. Keep Smiling.

Scheduled for RNY on July 8th. Start my liquid diet on June 24th, which I'm dreading 😬 My birthday is July 3rd, so I'm slightly bummed about not being able to do my usual dinner and cake, but that's part of the journey. Makes me wonder where I'll be at for my birthday next year. I'm so nervous, but so excited at the same time!

Happy birthday!

Hi All...new here..from Australia

Booked in 23 July 2020 for sleeve

Commence the 2 week pre diet Thursday....so much want to turn my life around but I'm scared as hell which I'm sure is normal.

I've had major bowel operations so i cant see it can be worse than that!.

Live on my own but still hoping i cant find support

I have employed a consultant who does this stuff and having weekly meetings with her which is great.

First day of bowel prep and 24 ounces in and I am regretting all of my life choices. I made the choice to not add Crystal Light to the Golytely and think I made a mistake. I was concerned about ruining Crystal Light for me for life if I did it The lemon flavor packet the pharmacy included is not even remotely sufficient.

Also, my lap band is making this process take longer because I can't do 8 ounces every 10 minutes.

Oh...and this is officially my worst birthday ever.

There is nothing “lyte” about golytely. That stuff is a bummer. Strange on the bowel prep as well. I don’t know if any of the rest of us have/had to do that. Try to remember this is part of the best birthday gift you will ever give yourself. Sending good vibes, positive thoughts, and wishes for a great year ahead on this less than stellar birthday!

My new date is July 22nd! My original date was May 18th but they canceled the day of my preop :(

I was provided that date two months prior and they flew by. Here I am waiting another two months and hoping it fly's by again! :)

Wow that’s my birthday lol they offered me July 21 as a surgery date but I turned it down. Now I’m wishing I had took it the sooner the better because all this waiting is giving me anxiety. I just don’t want them to cancel because if coronavirus before the end of this month

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      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).
