Nearly time for surgery



Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just signed up today as I feel I need some support and guidance. Not had my surgery yet I was given the 18th jan but due to work I could take it but now wishing I had. So I’m reading the Bariatric Bible which is very helpful but to hear from any of you guys would be great. I’m not knowing what type of food processing machine I’d need the 2 wks diet prior is concerning me a little.

If would be helpful if you filled in your profile, particularly the surgery type if nothing else, this helps to provide context for when members respond to your posts.

I only have a blender, I am not big on appliances, the blender did me fine. I was able to blended Protein Shakes as well as puree Soups, etc for the puree stage.

I assume you have a pre-op diet to undertake? They do tend to vary from surgeon to surgeon / dietician to dietician and some aren't required to do a pre-op diet. Look at it as opportunity rather than a challenge or torture. It will reduce your liver size, help you focus, cut out foods that won't be helpful to you post-op (so you don't have to contend with that while recovering from surgery), good practise for immediate post-op where likely fluids/liquids will be your main sustenance.

Hi, I’ve filled in what I can I’m opting for the gastric sleeve. I was given the 18th jan but I couldn’t take it as my work is still very much up in the air from Xmas and I didn’t know where I’d stand with the 2 wk self isolation with regards to using A/L of sick.
Anyways thank you for your response it was very helpful.
