I start my pre-op diet tomorrow. I just hope I'm prepared (as in, that I have enough stuff). I'm super worried about sticking to it, esp. the no caffeine part.

I actually have been weening myself off of caffeine...I have 3 pods every morning and cut back to two caf, one Decaf and now I'm at two decaf, one caf and next week, no caf at all. :( But Premier Protein makes an awesome coffee creamer substitute! Good luck!!

I started mine on Sunday, first three days were not easy. Especially the headaches. I am in my fourth day today, and feel better. I chose no to do decaf today at all, and I have been k all day. Good luck!

I have completely gone to Decaf, but thanks for the idea about the shake as Creamer. Great idea. Just had my first cup. Fantastic. My surgery next week. Let the journey begin

My sleeve surgery is next week 7/15. I'm on day 7 of liquid diet. Every day is up and down emotions. The pain in my stomach from feeling so empty is bad but the cravings are just as bad. I want a real piece of food so badly. I have an amazing supportive family but how could they truly understand how I feel? Just need some realistic conversations with people going thru the same thing.

Hi Team July and visitors! I had my bypass surgery on Monday. I have been doing quite well, but the pain in my left shoulder really ramped up last night. My surgeon’s PA said I would have referred pain from my diaphragm due to a hiatal hernia repair. I am hoping it feels better soon. Other than that, I did manage a short walk yesterday along with getting my Protein and Water in. All in all, I feel like I’m doing well and would consider myself as doing great if the shoulder pain would reduce a bit. Oh well, Tylenol is my friend. Hope all of you are hanging in there as your surgeries happen. Please let us know how you are doing.

Got my new date after waiting since March .... my day is now July 28 .....praying the hospital continues to do the bypass..... any thoughts on how long people will be out of work? I am wondering if due to the virus doctors are keeping people home longer after surgery?

My surgery is booked for 15th July! I'm on day 10 of pre op diet! It's been up and down and haven't done too well on the pre op diet. Feeling nervous as it gets closer. Has anyone else struggled or struggling through pre op ?

Hey. I'm same surgery day as you. Why so long on pre diet? I thought my 14 days is hard. I'm only allowed shakes, broth, Jello, and popsicles. I'm more excited than nervous now but have been pretty nervous earlier in process for sure. You can do this! We got to stick together!
