I'm booked in for 22nd October in London UK! I'll be starting the pre-op diet on Sunday - slightly earlier than the 2 weeks by Consultant's advice. I'm very nervous about the operation, but definitely glad to have found the site. There's very limited information available from my dietitian - and a lot of gaps which I'll have to query with her - so am delighted to have so much experience to access on this site!

same date. ill start my diet on Mon i need this weekend lol

Super excited for all of you!! I was G Bypass back in August and I’ve seen so much change in myself and learned a ton from being here.

Take care and stay hydrated 💜

Same dates for me too! It's crazy to be drinking soooo much and yet so thirsty at the same time. I feel like my bladder is hating me right now but feeling great overall.

I feel you! Does your program allow meals at all? mine lets me eat 4 oz of lean Protein and veggies for dinner, and an egg or turkey slice for a snack. What I do is 3 shakes, space out 120 oz of liquid throughout the day and then dinner.

what are you bringing in your hosp bag?

Yes, one meal of 3 oz Protein, 2 1/2 cups of non starchy veggies and 3 Protein Shakes throughout the day and around 100oz of Water. I've been doing that same, three shakes and then dinner for my solids.

Gosh, I haven't even thought about that. Lol! My surgery center is 125 miles away and have been waiting on the insurance approval (which should come today as it's been two weeks since it was received).

What are you planning to bring? I suppose light weight clothes, phone and charger, bathroom stuff....I'm sure I am forgetting more.

Chapstick, YES girl! Totally would have overlooked that important necessity.

Where are you located? I'm in Nebraska.

Is anyone doing outpatient? I’ve read all these posts where people are staying overnight for days and I’m supposed to get up and walk out after my surgery is done! Is that weird or what? I’m less than 2 weeks away and I’m getting nervous!
