Preparing for VSG surgery in 3 weeks!



Recommended Posts

Hey all!! I have my vsg scheduled for Nov 6. I feel like I need to be preparing, but I have no idea what to prepare for. I am flying to San Diego on the 6th and having surgery the same day in Tijuana at Hospital BC. I am so nervous and excited! I could use any advice you have. What to bring, what to prepare at home before I leave, anything! My Dr put me on a 3 day liquid diet. What did you all drink during that time? What did you love to eat afterwards? What should I buy now to stock up for after surgery? Please help!

Welcome to the forums.

Hopefully, you've learned what your post-op program looks like and how it works. Depending on the requirements it will make sense to have at least a few options available for the first week. Your tastes may change a bit for a while, so variety may help find something you like.

Have a comfortable chair/recliner, or minimally pillows that can prop you up. Sitting up was often more comfortable than laying down.

During your 3 day liquids, Protein Drinks, broths, Soups (only liquid part), are anything comparable. I was never on a liquid diet preop or post-op, but when I do such I go for big flavor.

Good luck.
