I have to be on a 2 day liquid diet, wondering about the chicken/beef broth. Can I use boullon to make broth or buy chicken noodle soup and strain the meat/noodles out? The plain broth I bought is not very good/bland. Any tips how to survive lol

Got a phone call from the surgeons office, they left a voicemail saying they want to switch my surgery on 4/20 from gastric bypass to the gastric sleeve based on the results of my endoscopy. Its too late for me to call them back but I will call tomorro

My family and I were discussing our Easter plans. Our holidays have pretty much always revolved around eating too much and having a few drinks. This year I will be on soft foods and unable to have a drink. Obviously, I need to find a new way to enjoy s

2 weeks until surgery & starting to feel nervous, anxious, and worried that something will go wrong.

Im also trying to figure out what things I need to buy which is confusing.

Any advice is helpful.

My surgery is scheduled for 2/20 and I realized that they had never said anything about this liquid pre-op 2 week diet that Ive heard so much about from others. So I called the surgeons office and asked and they said there is no pre-op diet but just do

My family and I shop at costco a lot and often times we all stop at the food court. (Im pre-op btw) My favorite item is the chicken bake or the pizza which I know are both not the healthiest. Wondering though if it will be ok after surgery (on occasion

Did you make any posts on social media to anounce that you're having wls? If so what did you post?


Lyds85 posted a discussion topic 6 months, 2 weeks ago

I had my abdominal ultasound this morning, which wasnt bad at all. Next week I just have to do my physical and endoscopy, then I will be officially done with all of my pre-op appts, yay! I also recently completed my medically supervised 6 month diet. I

How long after gastric bypass will I be able to drink coffee again? Can I have decaf? What am I allowed to put in it cream & sugar wise? What can I order at Starbucks? Would love to hear what you all drink as far as coffee goes.

Even though Ive managed to lose a lot of weight on my own, I will still be over 400lbs at the time of my surgery. Has anyone here had surgery being that heavy, and how did it go? Im a little nervous.


Lyds85 posted a discussion topic 6 months, 3 weeks ago

I also meant to ask earlier if anyone has had an endoscopy done pre op, and how it went? I have to have one because on my heavy use of ibuprofin previously and i guess they need to make sure my stomach is good.


Lyds85 posted a discussion topic 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Its been a few months since I have been on here and I still have not had my gastric bypass due to other annoying health stuff that came up. It has been so INSANE but slowly I am reaching this goal of surgery. My highest ever weight was 535 and now im 4

Im still pre-op, doing the 6mo diet and going through all of the process to make this surgery happen, but if all goes well I should be having surgery in Nov just right before the holidays. I know this probably sounds like a stupid question, but what wi

So i am just beginning this 6 month process to get gastric bypass and so far only my husband knows. We share a home with my mother and it is coming up to where I need to tell her so she can help drive me to appts (im visually impaired and dont drive).
