Anyone Schedule for Surgery in June?



Recommended Posts

My surgery date is in June 3rd! My current weight is 109,4kg but my highest weight was 117kg.
I spoke to my surgeon on Monday (May 17th) about liquide diet pré-op, he said in France this is not necessary. It’s done in US countries. So no liquide is required for me.

No not really, I had to follow up with a nutritionist for 6 months in Order to sort out and rebalance my eating habits. By doing so, I lost 10kg by watching what I eat. But surgeon said no liquid diet required. Just no food in my stomach 12 hours before surgery

Congratulations! Mine is June 8. If you can try to cut back on carbs and sugar before surgery! I’m finding that cutting back has helped a lot and will help after! Your sooo lucky not to have this miserable liquid diet lol.

How are you doing now that you've had your surgery? I'm in FR as well and will have my surgery in October. No liquid diet for me either. You are correct in that they do not do that here in France. We do still have to eat very light in the pre-op (no sugar, no carbs, no more than 150 g of lean meat, no fats or oils), but we can eat. I wonder why it's not the same in the US?

I’m so happy I had my surgery, I don’t feel like a new person as yet but so glad I can fit into some nice looking clothes that are not leggings. My surgeon said that the reason they do liquid diets in the US, it’s because it allows the size of the organs to shrink so during the operation there are less risks.
I hope that all goes well for October. I had to be operated in February but due to COVID, it was pushed back twice.

I know what you mean when you say it's nice to fit into clothes that are not leggings, as that is pretty much all I wear these days. :( :lol: Wearing nice clothes is probably at the top of my list of things I want to do once I lose this weight...even if it sounds vain!

Glad you're recovering well. :)

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
