I live in Bellevue! Having surgery in Kirkland. Not scared but I am scared! Anxious nervous all of those things wrapped in one! I thought of moving to Lynwood.

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!

My surgery is outpatient as well. My doctor doesn't keep folks in the hospital/ Part of me is OK with it because i would rather be in my own bed.

The best advice I got pre-op and again post-op was to take things day by day. If I got stressed or was hurting, take things hour by hour. That really helped me get through the rough days when I wanted to focus on being healed and past liquids and such.

You’re gonna do great.

Anyone else feeling foggy on the liquid diet? I am on Actigall and it’s not a side effect, but I am having trouble finishing a thought and feel drugged. I’m having a Gatorade Zero in case it is electrolytes (I have been peeing like crazy!!!). I can have only Protein Shakes and raw veggies. What has it been like for you all?

I hear ya! I am on Protein Shakes and 2 egg whites a day. The first 3 days were the worst. I ended up taking off one day because I felt so tired. I am on day 6 now and feel much better. I run out of energy by the evening but during the day I feel pretty good.

Foggy for sure! I was drained/dazed on the pre diet and the 2 week post liquid as well. Purées is when I gained clarity and energy. Soft foods felt like rebirth.

Hang in there.

Hey there ! I have one week of pre op diet left too. My surgery is 10/13. I just had my call with the OR and it feels so real now ! There were so many instructions I wasn’t expecting. It was so thorough which I liked.

when is your date

I had my surgery 6 days ago and I am doing well. I am kind of over the liquid diet but oddly the liquid diet does fill me up quickly. I think my brain is just confused as to how this is even possible 😂 I have 2 more days before I move on to the puree phase. As for my surgery, I haven't had any issues. My incisions are healing well. No vomiting or nausea, and my pain is minimal. The doctor wanted me to get up and moving asap. After I woke up in recovery I began doing laps around the nurses station and again once I was placed in a room on the floor. I was nervous going in because of Covid I wasn't allowed to bring anyone into the hospital with me, but my medical team took great care of me. I am so happy to start this new journey. Congratulations to everyone who made the decision and is doing the hard work.

I am 2 days away! I have done well on this liquid diet much to my surprise. Today is my last day of work before Wednesday’s operation and tomorrow I am having the EGD done. I am thankful for this forum.

Good luck!!

I have to stay overnight but I don’t have to do a pre op diet. Anyone else doesn’t have to be on a certain diet before surgery?
