Hi everyone,

Anyone else having the surgery on the same day as me?

My work colleague is also having it done, 5 days before me.

I am so excited to be doing this!

I'm May 12th as well! My pre-op diet officially starts Wednesday as well but I've opted to start today. Thursday I go for my endoscopy. I'm excited but I'm also super nervous especially with how real it's all starting to feel now.

This is great! Four of us with the same surgery dates. My surgery is also on May 12th and I started the pre-op diet today.

Starting day 5 of the pre-op. I have more energy, though still fatigue easily. I've had a low grade headache and broke down and had a cup of green tea this morning because I'm pretty sure it's a caffeine withdrawal. (Already the headache is subsiding). The diet DOES get easier with each passing day so I'm feeling confident that I'll be able to manage the after-surgery diet restrictions. I'm noticing my weight dropping and joint pain easing, a big bonus.

Hang in there, all. We can do this!

My surgery is May 10. Started the diet yesterday. Staying pretty hungry!

It took about 3 days before I started to lose the hunger feeling. As much as I get sick of the Protein Shakes, I just force myself to drink one when I start getting a hunger signal. Right now, my cravings have diminished (I'm sure it comes and goes) and I actually walked through the grocery store yesterday without being miserable looking at everything I couldn't have... that seems like a milestone. Every day there's improvement. Hang in there!

How are you all going with the pre-op diet? I started my 3 shakes a day today. I can have veggies in between meals so I think that will help reduce my hunger... we shall see.

We have a week to go!!! Yay!!!

Mine is going well for the most part. I'm lucky in that my diet is easier than most I see on here. I get shake for Breakfast, mid morning high Protein snack, shake for lunch, afternoon high protein snack, dinner is 6oz lean protein, veggie, and small carb then another shake at night if needed. I'm super grateful I have the meal and Snacks built in it definitely helps. I did have a hangry moment yesterday where I ate one of my son's 80 calorie pirates booty bags (I think it's PMS) but I'm back on track now and confident one snag won't destroy my liver shrink.

I'm in a place where I'm feeling less nervous lately but we'll see how it feels when it's only 1-2 days left.

I have been drinking two to three Protein Shakes a day and some days eating two scrambled eggs. I screwed up last night and ate a cookie. My surgery is May 9th.

Excited to finally be at the point I've been waiting for but also increasingly nervous. Like I know rationally the risk is relatively low but I have a small child at home and I'm still nervous about something going wrong, or recovery being worse than I'm anticipating. I'm trying to mentally prepare to feel like crap for a week so then if it's better it'll be a pleasant surprise.
