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.

Hello and welcome. You will definitely find advice, support and motivation here on this site. Second to the surgery, joining this site is the best decision I have made for myself. People are so kind and helpful. Congrats on your surgery date and don’t be too nervous. We all were but it’s a good decision and the day will be here soon enough. Best of luck.

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!!

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
