November Surgery Buddies!!!



Recommended Posts

Started our PreOp 10 day diet today. It is going smoother than I imagined so far. I have been drinking my Protein Shakes sips at a time trying to get my body used to what it would be like after surgery and it has helped me feel full throughout the day. November 8th can't get here soon enough!!

I have had my surgery back November of 2019 and it feels like it was just yesterday!! I will post up a trend in the post op regarding my experience and the ups and downs if you would like to take a look. ☺️


Any tips on things we should take to the hospital with us?

Hello Stacie! I'm having my band removed but going to bypass on the 6th too! How long have you been banded? I've been banded since 2005. Thankful to have this 2nd chance. Best of wishes for a safe, speedy and total healthy recovery and WL journey!

Oh amazing wrre are you having it done? I've had my band since around 2009. I'm hoping there is not too much fatty tissue and they are able to do it in one operation. All the very best to you too ♥ xx

I'm scheduled for November 1st... 😅 I'm getting nervous but I'm glad to be taking this step in changing my life for the better! This liquid diet really sucks- but I'm committed and I keep in mind that it is temporary! It's also a little stressful going to the hospital during the pandemic... I'm praying for a successful surgery and to remain Covid free... 🙌 Please send positive energy and prayers! I really appreciate it! Wishing everyone the best! 🌠

My surgery is Nov.3 I just found out 3 days ago because it got bumped up because of a opening. I’m nervous because it’s not many days to do the liver shrinking diet

I think you should be OK they wouldn't have you in so quick to have it done if the liver shrinking diet made a real big impact. We're are you having it done? I'm really nervous more so about being put to sleep xx

Hi all! Got my date after being on hold due to covid.. Nov 11th!
I am so afraid the preop diet won't shrink my liver enough, so even though Dr says to do just low carb, I feel I may do 2 shakes a day and 1 meal of Protein and veggies from here on out. Don't want to take any chances.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
