You can do it! Dr Miles & Schmidt in Bham would not have required this I do not believe. Don't give up. If you are having the Sleeve when you wake up and leave the hospital no more hunger!

Thank you!! Do you know what the best kind of Vitamins to take after surgery?

I am told Bariatric Advantage. Your Doctor should have a calendar of when to begin taking what.

When is your surgery and how long have you been on this pre op diet? What surgery are you having?

My surgery is on 3/22 i am having vertical sleeve done. i have been on just shakes for 3 days now but have had celery in-between shakes cause i get so hungry. I know im not supposed to. I am 5ft and 288 pounds as of today i have lost 30 so far 🙃 that was the goal he gave me to get approve my surgery. I am also Self-Pay and this past friday was my last weight in and he gave me the green light to have it done and thats when he said i have to do the shakes 3 times a day and nothing else till the day before surgery. Then only Clear Liquids the day before and nothing the day of. I will be in hospital for a day and half because i have factor 5 Leiden (blood clot disorder)

I am scheduled for surgery on 3/15. For two weeks I am supposed to do 2 Protein Shakes a day and a small meal for dinner. Struggling with Protein shakes though. They taste horrible! Am I allowed to drink it super fast just to get it done? It doesn't taste as awful right after I make it.

I buy the Body Fortress or Premeir Protein at Walmart, pre mixed. If you have a bullet put in your Protein Drink or half of the Body Fortress, a scoop of whey protein on top, scoop of Collgen protein and half carton of triple Zero Yogart. Fill the rest with crushed ice and blend. I think they are delicious. I drink 2 of these a day but dont put the Protein Powder in the second one.

I started my preop diet last week. It is for 4 weeks, a Protein Shake in the am and I can have a cup of fruit or veggies, then lunch is the same Protein shake and a cup of veggies or fruit. dinner 3 oz lean white meat, a cup of veggies and a serving of whole grains. I can also have a snack of low fat cheese anywhere in there. The hardest part I have is the Protein Shakes. But I am just forcing myself. I have lost 5lbs in this week so it definitely motivated me to stay on the diet. But man does my head hurt and energy is low. I tend to choose to eat veggies rather than fruits because of the calorie count. The diet is meant to be 800-1200 calories per day. I have sat at 950 to 1100 calories pretty much the whole week. But I have set a goal of 800 to 900 for this week for myself. Surgery is in 22 days and I am excited and scared all at once. I am so glad I found this sight because it really helps to remind myself that I am not alone!#wegotthis

How long do you have to do it for? I did 3 days and even that was tough! It did get easier by the third day. You got this!

I have been on liquid Protein Shakes and Clear Liquids for 3 (1/2) weeks per surgeon's orders! I so want to be free of them, but must admit, haven't been hungry! And, since surgery, have only lost 13 lbs! Anybody else?
