im on my 2wk liquid pre op diet, day 3 and notice I run out of energy quickly. I'm assuming this is normal?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 1 week, 1 day ago

OK, this is getting REAL! Tomorrow I start my two week pre op liquid diet. Hard to believe just 10 days ago this seemed so far away. 14 days from now I'll be anxiously awaiting my new stomach........OH MY GOSH!

Since I got such great suggestions when I asked about vitamins, I'd like to know which unflavored protein powder has worked best for y'all in both hot and cold items.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

Will I be able to wear my bra immediately after surgery? Will it matter if it's an underwire?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 1 month ago

looking for recommendations on chewable vitamins. I take regular needs daiLynn and chewable vitamins when I actually take them. I'm pretty sure after surgery I will not tolerate vitamins in pill form.

counting down until my surgery. 3wks and 3 days until I start the pre op diet and 5wks 3 days till surgery. I'm excited at this point but can feel my anxiety level creeping up.

Does anyone know of any companies that give out free samples of their protein mixes?

any suggestions on what I should do in these 6wks waiting for my surgery


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 1 month, 1 week ago

I know this is an odd question, but with 6wks till surgery the strangest questions pop into my head randomly. What did you do about clothing as you lost? Seems like it would be expensive to keep up with.

It's looking like June 29 will be my day!!!!

anyone taking the drug Contrave after surgery? Wondering if it would help with head hunger/cravings


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 1 month, 2 weeks ago

has anyone tried to ease into the pre op diet ahead of the 2wks prior to surgery?. I'm trying to do only protein shake and liquids for breakfast trying to get myself mentally capable of tackling that phase. Am I crazy?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I have both a milk allergy and gluten intolerance can any of you recommend a good protein shake or powder that I can use after surgery

I am having a lot of anxiety and a very short fuse and I've not even gotten my date yet. I'm worried it's gonna get worse and was hoping some of you would have some good ideas/pointers to help me chill out some.

I have one more test before my second appt with the surgeon. If all checks out well we will be scheduling my surgery sate. I'm so excited and anxious at the same time

What was your BMI pre op? Anyone have the sleeve with a BIN over 50?


LMTSC posted a discussion topic 1 month, 3 weeks ago

I just started this process a week and a half ago. Because I work for the hospital I'm being 'fast tracked' and have already been cleared by Psych and Pulmonary. Monday I finish the cardiac clearance and will only have the EGD left. Talk about a whi
