Well... my doctor said I only needed to do pre-op for 5 days but... I am so nervous something will go wrong I am going to start the pre-op on 3/29.

Wow 5 days...not bad. My pre op testing is on 04/05. Hopefully mines wont be too long either.

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here too :). I was looking for an online support community, and this looks like a great place to be. My surgery date is 4/13. So far I have the Protein 2o drinks.. 15g of protein. I also got some bariatric Vitamins on the recommendation of a friend.

My doc only requires a 3 day pre op liquid diet.. but I was thinking about starting early and making it a 5 day.

Best things people told me to bring were pajama pants (forget a robe cause all the wires make that impossible) you will want to cover up when walking around and phone or iPad. I watched Netflix and played games while awake but slept a lot as well. You don’t need much more than that. Seriously. Good luck. 🍀

I was totally going to bring a robe... and like a nightgown type thing. I didn't think about the wires at all.. this makes so much sense.

Yea and you will have all the wires attached after surgery in which you must wear their robe so no point to bring that either unless you want to ask them to unhook all that so you can change gowns which most people don’t feel up to all that.

Trust me. I bought a new robe and two nightgowns even. But didn’t use any of it. Brought pajama pants too based on someone’s comment on here and it was all I needed.

My surgery is scheduled for April 6th. I started my preop diet yesterday on March 23rd. I’m surprised I’m not starving. I’m definitely hungry but it’s doable!!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
