I am three years post sleeve contemplating revision surgery and I am trying not to do food funerals this time. I still don’t have a surgery date though so let’s see how I feel as I count down the days. . I am thinking I am going to have the SADI so I really May have stuff I can never tolerate Again. Now I’m thinking…maybe just one last meal, lol. But if you are like me and carbs make you crave carbs maybe stop these a few days before your scheduled to start the pre op. Otherwise the preop will seen that much harder. Just FYI also, With the sleeve I was able to tolerate anything post surgery and I’ve heard the same from a lot of people who have had bypass (although they can sometimes only have very small amounts of certain things).

After reading everyone's comments I have decided not to go too mad with it haha. I will be mildly restrained!

I think the LRD is going to be helpful in weaning me off of sugar and other things that I tend to binge on, so I am just preparing for that!

What is LRD? I do not “binge” per say but I do tend to eat because of emotions and it’s always bad choices and more fhan I should eat is LRD a type of surgery or a Medication or something else?

LRD is the liver reduction diet that most people are required to go on before surgery :)

Ooh okay. I just never heard the acronym. Yea. If the carbs make you crave more carbs but you can do a diet once you get going (until you’re tempted with something or you have a stressful day or whatever) then try what I did. I just ate healthier the couple days before. Basically lower carb but as much of it as I wanted so I wasn’t hungry. Then, MY preop diet wasn’t bad at all. I’m all fairness, though, I was allowed one low carb meal a day so mine was a little easier than some. (I’m not sure if this was because I started at a lower BMI or just because my doctor has a different plan).

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
