How is everyone doing with their pre-op diets? Mine is honestly much better than I anticipated although I am one of the lucky ones that is not restricted to only liquid. I'm definitely having some head hunger and cravings but I'm not actually hungry most of the time.

Question for the ladies: anyone else due for their time of month around surgery? I'm praying mine comes soon and is done by the time I go in. I don't want to have to be dealing with that on top of everything else.

JUST realized my 1st cycle day is surgery day 🤦‍♀️ NOT looking forward to that As I usually have SEVERE cramps. I was looking at other people's posts about it and they've said there is a lot of support during the hospital stay when you're on your period. I hope so!!!

Hope it goes well for you and it's not too bad.

Well, at least you'll get pain meds. That's something to look forward to with bad cramps ;-)

I just had my pre-op appointment and pre-op diet starts tomorrow. I can’t believe my surgery is 2 weeks from tomorrow! I feel like the last part of this process has gone by so fast, I’m excited and a bit freaked out!

Hey y’all I literally just started my 2 week pre op diet today and I’m already experiencing some head hunger lol I’m super excited and nervous. I saw some ladies talking about their cycles and I was scared on that because mines supposed to start a few days before my surgery! Any tips? Lol

Nice! I started mine yesterday as the surgeon's office wanted 14 full weeks of liquid + the day before surgery Clear Liquids. Yeesh!

The only thing I'm struggling with is caffeine withdrawal! I was a HUGE fan of caffeine - I've had a foggy headache since this weekend when I quit cold turkey :(

How is yours going? Can you have solids?

I was not looking forward to this liquid diet lol I’ma huge carb lover unfortunately for me. Only solid I can have is a hard boiled egg!! My mind woke up hungrier than ever today. & I felt that on the caffeine cause a coffee a day keeps the headaches away 😂

It's weird going into the weeks leading up to surgery. I still have my pre-op appointment with my primary care doctor. That's the last thing I have to do. It's going quickly now!

I'm hoping the brain fogginess lets up soon.

I had the same issue with caffeine withdrawal. I had some green tea the first day, but it didn't help at all. I broke down and had a half cup on day 3 because I had such a bad headache, but I've been without since then and feeling a lot better. Hang it there!

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.

      Just stumbled across this and had to think of BP immediately. I know this is something people simply don't want to think, let alone talk about but it's one of the reasons I'm limiting time on here.
