My VSG is scheduled sept 10. I have a one week liquid pre-op diet. I’m so excited but scared at the same time.

I'm excited and scared too. I talked to the surgeon yesterday and he said it was normal, and that he wasn't scared, but he was excited for me. I liked that. I'm glad he wasn't scared 🤣

VSG Surgery September 13th in Portland Oregon Does anyone else have an iodine allergy? I cant seem to find many options as of shakes and Multivitamins that don't contain Iodine and that meet the low carb, low sugar, low fat requirements for post op diet, anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions would be great!

what are you using for liquids other than shakes and Water? have you tried the Protein waters? I'm trying to find some sweetened with stevia not sucralose. Sucralose gives me a stomach ache, makes me pukey. Looking for suggestions!!

Everyone on here is doing so amazing. So glad I joined this group!

Try this one, it’s powder form and tasty like crystal lite, it uses Stevia.

      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 🥲

      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.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
