Good Luck Everyone,

Hi Lisa,

I'll have my surgery at North Shore LIJ Syosset Hospital. Yes, I have to do a pre-op diet for 1 week prior (liquid diet) which I'm actually happy about because it will give me a good jump start to losing weight. How about you? From what I've read on this site, most people have to do a liquid pre-op diet. Some have to do it more than 1 week. That must be hard because we also have to do the liquid post-op. For me, post-op is 2 weeks and then move to mushie foods. Tell me about your pre and post-op procedures.

Lisa :cursing:

Hey Lisa,

I have to do a pre-op diet also but the nutrionist gave me different information than what the surgeon gave us at the seminar. I am suppose to receive a package from the surgeon by the end of this month so I hope it will clarify what I am suppose to do. I did buy some samples of Protein shakes and unflavored Protein powder and also Calcium citrate 400 mg as per the nutritionist.

How about exercise? At the seminar we were told 45 minutes aerobic exercise daily. I am trying to get on my treadmill for 15 minutes 3 days per week right now and will increase each week.

Lisa

Hi Kimaly

I know I thought 45 minutes was insane too! Maybe months from now I can build up to that but right now I can barely do the 15. Good luck to you

HEllo there ladies (and gents out there :biggrin: ) I am so hoping to be banded in July actually I want to on June 30th but my father just got out of sextuplet heart surgery and I was debating if I am going too fast and should I wait till his FULL recovery. Thing is I feel I am being very stingy and selfish if I go ahead and get this surgery something I have been wanting to do for months now. I had pre-op scheduled in March, and my MOM passed away all of a sudden two days prior and then my dad starts to go down hill from then on and now I have done everything and passed all test and now they are just waiting for me to give them the GO. What should I do? Will I or can i be there at least 80% of the time after my surgery for him? Gosh I am so confused!

I think your parents would want you to do whats best for you. I'm a parent of 3 grown children and all I ever want is for them to be happy.as far as your father goes sometimes that happens when one spouse loses another the other goes down hill. just be there for him best you can but don't put your life on hold I doubt he wants that. good luck hun, do you have sibblings that could help?

Just got my surgery date today! July 22nd! Still not quite sure it is for real...but I'll bet that changes when I pay my insurance co-pay on July 11!

I'm getting banded! I'm getting banded! I'm getting banded!

Am I the only one who can hear that music?

I hear that music too. 16 more days. YAHOO

Hey Choromom, I too had to pay 15% of the surgery cost or up to 2,000! Of course the cheapest is 2,000. We had room on our flexiable spending acct so I put it on there.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      08/20/18 - weight 165.5 / bmi 25.9 / bmr 1602 kcals / fat% 17.4% / fat mass 29 lbs
      08/16/19 - weight 149.5 /  bmi 23.5 / bmr 1500 kcals / fat% 16.7% / fat mass 25 lbs
      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
