Quiet thread, but I'm sure others will join. My date just got moved up to August 11th because of scheduling drama at the hospital. Suddenly that seems VERY soon!

I think most people have been posting on the other thread with the Sleevers. I was hoping more of us bypassers would post on here since it'll be a little different for us.

So we're all within a few days of each other. EEEK. I'm excited but getting more nervous as it gets closer. Start my pre-op diet on 7/26.

Exciting!!! I haven't heard anything from insurance. Next week I have to go for pre-op labs and EKG. I'm hoping to hear approval before then. Or maybe I should put them off. Not sure what to do there.

Thanks PennyKay!! All my regular testing has been done for quite a while. My surgeon requires the last set of labs and EKG to be done within 30 days of surgery.

So excited to be joining you all! My surgery is scheduled for August 23rd. It’s been a long six month wait but now seems like it’ll be here any day!

I started my pre op diet today. I have a couple of questions. Am I allowed to have an occasional cough drop? Do Protein Shakes count towards my daily liquid goal? I am allowed non-starchy vegetables. Am I able to make a small salad and use olive oil for the dressing? And lastly it seems like everything on my list of things to eat is sweet. OK not everything, but Between the shakes, and the pudding, and the Jell-O etc. it’s just a bit much for me. Anyway…day one completed!

EEEK!! Exciting!!! LOL Congrats on day 1! I start on Monday.

It seems like each surgeon has their own idea of what a pre op diet is but for MY program on one sample day they have 4 oz fish/2 cups salad/90 calories light Salad Dressing. Then they have a food exchange list and it shows 2 T low fat salad dressing is 45 calories and 1 t olive oil is 45 calories. Since I'm allowed 2 fats - that also lists Peanut Butter, avocado, olives, and some nuts. I guess it depends on how your program is set up.

I don't see anything too interesting on my "Free foods" - just the SF Jello, pudding, popsicles, etc. Everything is sweet like that except maybe herbal tea, broth, bouillon.

Edited to add: My plan allows me to count Protein Shakes toward my liquids for the day. Not sure on the cough drop though (maybe if it has no sugar?)

Thank you for letting me know… did your nutrition tell you to be on a Keto diet for a year after surgery. I just made up my own food selection. I better look at the paperwork… I don’t want to gain anything back.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
