Surgery 9/1 and pre-op liquid diet started today. Man this sucks! Lol. Keep being told it gets better after a few days so I am hanging in there

Sounds like your program is more like mine. Best of luck and let us know your you're doing!

We got this! I’m excited/nervous…there’s got to be a word for that. Excivous? Nervited? Anyway, good luck!

LOL, my vote is for "nervited". Excivous sounds more like what happens when your surgeon gets in a hurry!

Anyway, whatever it's called, I'm sure we're all feeling it!

I started on the pre-op diet on Wed so this just my third day. I get 2-3 Protein Shakes, 3 oz lean meat, and 2 cups veggies per day. I want to try this: 2 cups ice, 1 vanilla Protein Shake and 1 single packet of sf orange drink. Sounds and looks good on the video. She used a Ninja Bullitt.

So are you hungry or is that enough to fill you up? That drink does sound yummy :)

I’m going to do the grocery part closer to the date. But I’m doing research and which Vitamins I want. It’s so hard to pick. My doctor gave recommendations but still hard 😂. Which are you guys planning to take. My date is the 9/12

I actually bought several different Vitamins, from several different companies, and in a few different forms (capsules, chewables, soft chews). I've heard some people have issues with one or the other post-surgery. I'd rather have them now so I have choices if I end up needing them. I figure eventually, I'll be able to use them, even if I can't stomach some of them early on. I doubt I'll waste entirely them unless they are just really terrible.

One thing I have not done is compare standard off-the-shelf vitamins to these supposed bariatric ones. I really want to know if there's a difference?
