I can only do so much because if I do too much I will be below the requirements set by my insurance. I feel like I am just stuck with no forward movement as far as goals…

That's the place I'm stuck at as well. The nurses at my clinic said to be careful even going to my regular Dr because if I'm under that cut off line on any official paperwork then they can deny the surgery. So I'm just in waiting and planning mode which is why I plan and buy too much lol.

New here! My surgery is scheduled for 9/2. I joined here on the suggestion of someone I watch on YouTube. They said it was really helpful to have a place to discuss things with people who are at the exact same stage you are. Good luck to us all!

Maybe! Around 5 years ago my liver numbers started to look troubling but I got it under control. No one has said anything, and I'm not getting blood work specifically from my surgery center for another two weeks, but I think back when I started the process my primary ordered labwork and probably shared it with the surgeons office. So yeah maybe that's it.

My surgeon doesn't require a pre-op liquid diet, either...just the day before.

Honestly, it's not very intuitive. Click on your name at the top right and look for "My Surgery". Most of it's in there.

I've clicked on everything and can't see a way to edit the My Surgery tab.

Make sure you are clicking on your name instead of the picture. It should be a drop down list and my surgery is towards the bottom after tickers. Tickers are neat because you can count down to surgery or the weight you have lost. Fun to me at least lol :)

Forgot to say that I just spent the last few hours making a list of dinners for me and the family to cook for 6 weeks. Its for the 2 weeks before and 4 weeks after my surgery. I want this as easy as possible on me, so for the liquid diet weeks I have the dinners being something I would not want to eat. So hopefully there will be less torture and temptation. That's the goal at least, fingers crossed.

Found it...finally! It was in the only place I had not looked for it...hehe. I will add a ticker as soon as I start dropping weight. This pre op stuff...well, I have lost and gained and lost and gained the same few pounds since I started the process. Its looking like I may be 3-5 lbs. heavier than my first visit. Or perhaps not. I still have a couple of weeks.

I'm new here and want to be included as a Sept surgery buddy! I'm scheduled for sleeve surgery 9/19/22. Still learning how to post all the info about me. I can't have any products with aspartame or sucralose due to they cause Migraines. So far only been able to use products with stevia or Monk Fruit.

My last pre op is on the 23rd! I find out what my liquid diet days will consist of and y’all I am nervous! A friend at work and I have started eating better at work and as I said before I can’t loose much weight or I will be knocked out… So far I have lost nearly 5 pounds and have been watching very closely to make sure I just maintain that. I am telling y’all if I get this close to my surgery date and get knocked out for a pound or two cause I started eating cleaner at work I am going to be so upset!!!!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
