Thank you!! I had heard of him.

what is the pre-surgery diet like for him? Two weeks liquid+250calories in veggies?

My problem is I need this done in the next two weeks due to life circumstances (kind of now or never) and my own surgery was cancelled here, otherwise I'm fully ready. I was thinking about continuing my liquid pre-surgery until I get a chance to speak with him and the other surgeon I'm considering so that won't be an impediment at least.

Any advice there?


sorry for the delay in responding. From my research pre op diets just like post definitely differ from surgeon to surgeon. Mine was a 10 day plan. Basically includes 2 Protein Shakes, 2 servings of non fat Greek yogurt 1/2 cup), 2 servings of berries that I typically add to my yogurt and 2 servings of cream Soup (no chunks) 1 cup each. And 64oz of Water. Add in 2 servings of glutamine as well the day before is just Clear Liquids which is the day I travel there it will take me three flights so will be a long day

have you picked a doctor and gotten it scheduled?!

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
