Hi NeedtoLoseWeight

Yay! Same date as me!

I don't have a liquid diet prior to surgery mine is 2weeks of 1000 calories a day.

I'm apprehensive about the post op 4 week liquid diet though!. Has your surgeon team given you an idea of what you can have liquid wise that will still fill you up?

Oh yay. Can’t wait!
No they haven’t but I’ve got an appointment with dietitian next week and hopefully get an idea. I have bought some Protein Shakes and Meal Replacements to help with liquid diet.

Hello everyone, I just got told today my duodenal switch surgery is April 5th. I finally got my surgery date. It may be a while. But it will be here before I know it. My high Protein low carb diet starts March 22nd. Can't wait to get started. Can't wait to get to know all of you.

I dislike having to get my ducks in a row yet before surgery. Setting up my time off with HR, doing the last minute stuff that needs to be done. Otherwise, very excited to start a new chapter in my life. I've been overweight since birth, quite seriously. I was 2 ounces shy of 12 pounds. To be honest, I don't hold out much hope of never being overweight, but getting out of obese and morbidly obese categories thrills me. Don't get me wrong, I am in this 100% and plan to do my very best. Just hard to imagine me not being "me" if that makes sense?

I'll be praying for you that you get yours done in April. Where are you from and what surgery are you getting done for your weight loss? Congrats on getting this far pre-op!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
