I tried the Nectar last night and got very sick again (after getting sick the night before after drinking a Premier drink)...appears that I might be allergic to whey isolate. I can drink the soy and pea protein. This is very disheartening to me, as I w

I was doing just fine on my first day of liquid diet...until I decided to drink a Premier drink. I ended up getting very, very sick. I’m going to call the office tomorrow, but I wondered if anyone had a similar experience?

It seems like this has been a very long process that would never end, but here I am, my last day of eating "normally" (which obviously wasn't very normal). I'm nervous and excited and more nervous.

What advice do you have for the liquid diet?

So I went to the doctor today and was told to wait 2 weeks for insurance approval. I got a call this afternoon that the insurance had already approved it and we could schedule (almost) immediately.

I'm so excited! I don't know how I'm suppose

I did a search on here and found multiple threads, but nothing in the last two years. I go tomorrow to submit the paperwork to insurance for my RNY, so I hope to have a date soon.

I've joined a local support group, and they all laugh and joke

I take 4 pills every day for depression. Does anyone have an experience where they still took capsule form medicine immediately following surgery?

I admit this is one area I feel like my WLS has brushed me off.

Any advice welcomed.

Since I last posted, I have been cleared for surgery by my cardiologist, went for my psych evaluation (passed), had a barium swallow test and now am scheduled for an upper GI on Wednesday (to see if my gerd is bad enough to warrant RNY). I think if ev

I just left my visit where they went over the liquid diet. I'm scared to death that I'm going to have an accident at work. The liquid diet scares me, and I'm afraid of developing chronic diarrhea after surgery (I read a thread about this on here once

Sorry to post again so soon, but I just got off the phone with the psychologist who has agreed to do my evaluation, and he told me to study up. He said he wants me to be able to list all the potential complications, changes to lifestyle that must be m

I just got home from the grocery store and I was very disappointed by the soup and broth options. Super high in sodium and almost no protein (I know I can add powder). What did you eat on all liquid diet before and after surgery? What brands? Thank

I met with the surgeon last Friday and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how thorough and down to earth she seemed. I was afraid I would be intimidated and forget all my questions but it wasn't the case.

The biggest problem

My coworkers just ordered Olive Garden and I declined. Also, I'm still hungry from yesterday.

Instead of OG I ate my little turkey slices and swiss cheese, along with some apples. My first appointment with the surgeon is Friday and I don't wa

I went to my allergist today and discussed my concerns about the nut allergens in most protein shakes. She advised I'll really have to do my homework (which I've been trying to do). Overall I did not leave with a positive feeling about pre-op shakes.

My nutritionist completely eliminated grains from my diet, except on special occasions. I've been following her advice for 2 weeks, but I am having problems completely giving up bread. I have switched to wheat, and majorly cut back otherwise, but am

I am pre-op but trying to eating something every 2-3 hrs. Is this grazing? Should I stick to set meals and snacks instead?

I'm in the first stages of prepping for a surgery in 6 months and I want it to work, but the thing that worries me is a lot of the protein shakes/protein powders, including unjury, have a warning about allergens. Am I going to prep for nothing? I tol
