Hiya!

My surgery is November 10th and I started my journey in August of 2019. I can't believe it's (surgery) is finally getting close! I start my liquid diet 3 weeks prior to surgery so on October 19th. I'm prepped and ready to go. It has been an extensive process to get to this point. I'm in Canada so things are a bit different here than in the states. I wish you the best of luck on your journey!

Hi Ladies,

This is what I have done to get ready so far.

1) Purchased my pre-op liquid diet shakes called Optifast and I will be starting them on Oct. 19th

2) Bought the required Vitamin supplements recommended by my bariatric team for the 1st two months after surgery.

3) Purchased Premiere Protein for my Liquid Protein supplement for after surgery

4) Purchased a small single serve blender "Ninga Bullet" to help me with making my shakes yummy and my pureed food yummy (I'm hoping)

5) I'm telling my office on Oct 19th that I will be having surgery on the 10th of November

6) Joined a very local WLS group so I can connect with people in person. I think I am going to initiate some group walk events so we can meet outside safely. We are in a rural area so that will be easy for us.

That's it so far....

I'm scheduled for Nov.2. So far I purchased 2oz plastic cups with lids so I can make and freeze small portions of pureed foods and broths. I also got some plastic medicine cups to portion out liquids. I see my surgeon next week for my pre-op visit and will learn what kind of diet I'll be on before hand. I also bought one of those medication organizers so I can track of which Vitamins to take daily.This weekend I'm going to make a big batch of beef broth to freeze.

I am having my lapband removed and laparoscopic bypass surgery on 24 November. I am excited, but also nervous about the removal part of the surgery. I really hope it is a smooth operation.

I feel much better prepared this time around because I have been working with a therapist since February who specialises in emotional eating and uses a mindfulness approach. She has helped me unlock the why and I have had several Aha moments in discovering why I have been an emotional eater since I was a child.

Surgery Gastric Sleeve scheduled for November 24th. My doctor told me to start liquid diet on the 17th of November, just one week prior to my surgery vs the 3 weeks I've seen some posters say. Also I was told I had to stop smoking at least 4 weeks prior to the surgery, any smokers with help on this?
