Don't stock up too much before surgery; I did, and found that after surgery I couldn't stand the same drinks I chugged before! Ended up giving 3 12-packs away. Also-Ramen broth (of course, don't eat the noodles) was on my list of pre-op, and for some reason, it really, really helped.

Im confused, are we talking of Ramen noodle seasoning packets or the actual 32 oz box of Ramen broth you can get from Walmart?

Adding a serving of Benefiber to Protein Shakes helps some people feel fuller longer. The Fiber is filling.
I don't use Protein powders after discovering Fairlife Protein Drinks. There's no comparison.
I tried a failure shake today and it was the bomb compared to the Premier
My surgery is on the 29th. I started my liquid diet today a day early. I'm having the sleeve put in. I have a question? Will I be strong enough in 2weeks time after having sleeve surgery to have surgery on my foot? They have to.put screw in broken bone.

Yes as long as the podiatrist is ok putting you under so soon. After 2 weeks you should feel pretty normal, just lighter and more hopeful about the future!

I’d have your orthopedics surgeon and your bariatric surgeon maybe talk? Or let your Bariatric surgeon know about your foot repair. He may recommend you wait. What kind of surgery are you having? What did you break?

LOL I didn't know you could buy Ramen broth by itself. I am talking about the cheap "cook in the styrofoam cup" ramen noodles. Threw the noodles away. Made me wish I had a dog.

My all liquid diet starts tomorrow! Mine appears to to be even more restrictive than yours (I will put an * by what my liquid diet consists of).

Needless to say, I am not looking forward to this ha!

Hahahaha well -- we were put on the SAME restrictions now because they removed ALL dairy products since we discovered I'm lactose intolerant! So at least you get the pudding which used to be MY FAVORITE SNACK!!!!!! :( Good luck on it. Honestly, it's hard but once I made it past the first week the rest of it seemed to be a lot easier. I'm almost done. Just need to make it to Monday as my last day before surgery on this liquid diet but then I get to add Soups to it after surgery!

      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.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
