"nothing is forgotten, only left behind"-Robbie Robertson
I just finished... and in 13 1/2 days I lost 27 pounds. We did the sugar free clear liquid diet. Ours included anything clear & SF (sugar free clear soda, crystal ligh****ER.. and tons of it!!) Sugar free jello, sugar free popsicles & broth. All vitamins that we are to take post-op and 2 - 30g proteins shakes daily. I was afraid that I was going to be a raving "B" while doing it! But, I was so pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. And I could totally tell a difference in how my body was moving. (with the 13 pounds I'd already lost, 40 pounds down makes moving around a LOT easier!!)
Best of luck on what you're doing. My surgeon said that following his SFCLD made his job yestersay MUCH easier on him.. and it went perfectly! Hooooray!!
Revision band to DS.
At goal!! Now I'm researching plastics.
