Hi Jim! Was your surgery confirmed? How did it go?

Hello rokse23, thanks for asking! Yes, it was confirmed yesterday! I'm very excited and told the surgeon as much. I've lost 34 pounds already on the pre-op diet and ready to lose a lot more (hopefully). It can't come soon enough, ready to roll...

Hello,

New to this group. I got my surgery date last week, I go in on April 12. Will be starting my pre-op liquid diet on 3/29.

Welcome! Not gonna lie, it's good to see another guy on here going through this process. We're only two days apart in surgery dates so it will be fun to compare notes. All the best!

April 5th here and I'm a nervous wreck! I have found several Better Than Bullion flavors that are absolutely AMAZING. I'm day 3 on liquid diet and am trying to get creative so I don't get bored with the same things. I haven't got a clear answer on spicy vs plain broth. Anyone have any input? I only ask because the spicy chipolte version is to die for and I want to make sure spice doesn't affect liver shrinkage.

April 5th! I started my low carb pre-op diet a few days ago and have been having the worst headaches. Anyone else have that happen? Will it go away?

Mine is April 5. I'm also excited.

Do you only have to follow one week of pre-op diet or have you already done a week and have one week left?

Veggie-wise, I've been having a lot of salad greens, mushrooms and some canned green Beans.

My biggest struggle has been with the headaches, fatigue and fogginess from the low carb diet. I'm having a hard time working.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?
      Thanks

      Well recovering from gallbladder removal was a lot like recovering from the modified duodenal switch surgery, twice in 4 months yay 🥳😭. I'm having to battle cravings for everything i shouldn't have, on top of trying to figure out what happens after i eat something. Sigh, let me fast forward a couple of months when everyday isn't a constant battle and i can function like a normal person again! 😞

        I may have to have gall bladder surgery during my weight loss surgery. Not thrilled about it either but do not want 2 recovery times. Just want it over with.

        Thanks for your post. I may need to rethink my decision... :(
