I have not had my surgery yet, close I think... possibly in the next two or three (at the latest) months. I was advised the first day (day of surgery) you may not get anything... only possibly tiny sips of water. The next day jus****er and I think only one day of clear fluids... after that you are on liquid diet for two weeks (any liquid, cream soup strained, jello, boost, I have even heard carnation instant breakfast. You can make whey powder shakes to get your protein.) Two weeks after is pureed foods, and then two weeks regular food (soft) this is what I was told and I am going for the VSG surgery. Where are you having it done? What type and have you been booked yet?
Go to the hospital light, they have johnny shirts you can wear, take slippers to walk in and loose clothes to go home in. Whatever toiletries you need such as deodorant, toothpaste, etc
Here is the list of the things I plan on taking with me:
Loose fitting clothes to wear on the way home.
Small firm pillow
Chargers / Cords
Reading materials -
Stuffed Animal (for bracing when coughing)
Belly Binder = $ 60.00
Toothbrush / Paste
Heating Pad for pain relief
Take care, and good luck, Danielle
