its called millies. I have a Thai one and Lemongrass. I will also bring Protein Powder and glutamine to add to my liquids and I should be good for the time at the quarantine hotel.

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?!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
