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.

I had all of my pre op appointments before I received approval. I think you should go ahead with them .🙂

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.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
