I got the call today and mine is scheduled for August 11th - assuming Cigna insurance approves. Anyone else have Cigna and know how long it took to get your approval?

1 week semi liquid (Protein shakes twice a day, lean protein/veggie dinner) pre-op diet.

8/3 for me I’m having gastric bypass! It’s to fix my hernia after gastric sleeve 3 years ago. My surgeon put me out for 6 weeks to recover

YoouniqueNY I only have a liquid diet for the day before. I was sleeved 3 years ago and they will fix my hernia and do a gastric bypass on 8/3. I drink a Protein Shake everyday so as soon as I can I will continue that it’s delicious and filling

My liquid diet is for 2 weeks before. I bought a bunch of the Atkins Advantage shakes. They're the best tasting ready to drink shakes I've found so far. I'm so excited for you. That's so soon!

@YouniqueNY I'll be using the PremierProtein - I seem to like them the best. Found a new flavor (Apple Cinnamon) last week that is fantastic for Breakfast. On the sweeter side, so I tend to drink it slower. Also experimenting with some of the flavored waters. A good friend of mine said to make sure I also get some broth as the sweet drinks will start getting old after a couple of days.

Congrats on your surgery date and birthday! Way to start off a "new year" with a "new you"!

August 3rd, revision from VSG to RNY due to reflux and esophagitis. Feels so weird going through all my pre-op steps again!

A friend of mine gifted me some Unjury broth Protein Powder. I'm nervous to try it because I'm such a picky person when it comes to taste. But I've definitely been thinking about how sweet everything is and I can imagine its going to be a lot.

Does your diet allow anything like vegetables or oatmeal? My surgeon is very strict and the only wiggle room is for no sugar Jello.

Unjury broth remains one of my favorites, and I ordered a bunch for my second surgery. I'm sensitive to fake sweeteners (more so after my VSG) and the savory Proteins are free of it!
