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?

I had my surgery yesterday. I also did not have to do a special pre op liquid diet. However, my surgeon did want me to stick to a stage 1/2 diet the day before surgery.

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
Mine is on the 13th as well! I'm meeting with a nurse and a physiotherapist tomorrow to go through everything during op and post op [emoji16]

I had my VSG done yesterday. Have to say it has not been easy for me. I have so much gas and have barely been able to release some. I hope they let me go home today. I have tried walking a lot to release gas but hasn’t helped much. Other than that I am fine. Just super uncomfortable.

The gas pain is pretty rough! When I was in the hospital I barely passed any! It wasn’t until the night I got home (day after surgery) that I was finally able to release some.


What felt good to me was continuously adjusting the hospital bed to lay flat for a few minutes, then sit up the next few, then back down. I feel like that helped move the gas around in my body so it wasn’t just sitting at my shoulders. I hope you feel better soon!

Why taking off? they cant make you. I pay way to much. They can get you oxygen from your ear.

That’s the hosp rules they said it’s hard to get oxygen read sigh.
