Anyone having their surgery in September? I got my date today 4th September - can’t wait!

Any prep tips? Think the pre op diet is 2 weeks before - just after my 40th birthday. Phew. 😊

I'm scheduled for 9/21, but hoping I can get bumped up. I've been tracking all my food, trying to hit 70g Protein a day, taking my vitamins/calcium/collagen every day, and using Parodontax. My dr has recommended a 2 week pre-op liquid diet, so I'm slowly stocking up on shakes, broth, Jello, etc. I'm soooooo ready to just do the dang thing!

I know I felt a pang of disappointment when they gave the date as had hoped it was sooner! Pre op booked for 25 August and Covid Test for 1 Sept. I was given the option of a milk and yoghurt diet or a low cal (800) a day - 10 days pre op. Starting to stock up on Vitamins. Like you am sooooo ready to get this done! X

I just scheduled mine 9/7/21 here in San Antonio, TX with Dr. Pilcher. I'm racked with guilt and have felt sick about it all day. I feel like I'm going to bust out in hives. I'm cash pay and I feel so guilty for putting the family in a financial situation. But I fear I won't be here for my kids if I don't! How does one get over that!? - sorry for the pity party. I thought I'd be happier.

I'd love some tips on the food. I am allowed two shakes Snacks (sf Popsicles and sf Jello, celery) and a small meal at the end of the day.

I know the feeling. After I scheduled mine I couldn't eat or not feel like vomiting for days. Now when I do think about it, it hits me but not as hard. I feel like I'm saying bye to food [emoji1787] it's like bittersweet! Keep us posted on your progress!! :)

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
