Covid messed with my Pre-Op

Recommended Posts

I am being revised Band to Bypass and have been dreading the pre-op diet.

I was 3 days out when all elective surgeries got cancelled due to Covid. I had followed the diet well and was rescheduled.

Date of the reschedule was coming up, was on the shakes and doing ok, only slipped once... again 3-4 days out was re-reschudled due to Covid.

I am due to go in tomorrow.

I really struggled this time, Firstly I missed the start day for the shakes (I work in government and between drought, fires and Covid I barely know what day it is), then I got in my head and have only successfully managed to do 4-5 days VLCD.

The VLCD I was given was: Brekky: shake, Lunch: shake or bar + salad, Dinner: Shake + Veg.

My diet has been Brekky: Shake or bar (if I remember), Dinner: Salad.

Im just super worried about starting late.

I was 123kg a week ago, 117kg ealier in the week and 120kg this morning (that time of the month due tomorrow for my op - Yay for me)


I just needed to get that off my chest as it's really been stressing me out

Hope you had your surgery and are recovering nicely. My surgery was rescheduled twice due to covid-19, and am now slotted in for August. It's been very stressful, but on the plus side there's a lot of pre-op weight loss due to multiple liquid diet adventures...
