My surgery hasn't scheduled yet. The procedure may take up to 6 months to fix a date. I tried different kind of meal replacement drinks to see what's better to use in my 3 weeks liquid diet before surgery but it seems like i am lactose intolerant because i had a cruel abdominal pain every time i drank these shakes. Today i went to the nutritionist, she replaced the liquid diet with a regular low calories fat free food plan. I thought i wld die of happiness when she showed me the menu plan, i can have eggs and bread for my breakfast, chicken with baked potatoes for my lunch and veal steak with vegetables for my dinner. although I should consume food in small quantities but it is still food not just drinks. I got some relief because i was very worried not to follow my liquid diet for three weeks. I was very discouraged because I heard a lot of bad and sad stories abt this pre-op liquid diet.
In my first topic i mentioned that i didnt have the chance to meet the main doctor who will do the surgery for me, instead i met a doctor in training so i wasnt very confident abt my decision to do the DS surgery, today i spoke to the nurse n asked her whether it's possible to give me an appointment with the main doc not the one in training to speak with him abt my all concerns n doubts, she was very helpful n gave me an appointment for the next week.
This time i will go to the doc with a long list of questions hopefully i will be more confident n relaxed with my decision. I wld really appreciate every question u may add it here so i can include it in my list.
Thanks for all of u
yea it is DS, it is written on my papers, Not SADI
Shorter is better? i was thinking to tell him to make it a little bit longer to absorb some vitamins and minerals LOL.. Good question, i will ask him.
Usually the length is not really a discussion point. Most surgeons that do a fixed length might discuss 25 mm shorter or longer but if they do the HESS method the length is whatever the length is.
I have yet to see any real data that says people do better or worse with minor changes to the length.
yea it is very good.. this is what i m doing also.. but i heard that giving a big shock to the body could have a great result on the wight lost result
