I know that it will be worth it....but for today the caffeine (diet coke) withdrawl stinks! Im on all liquids for 2 days before sugery, Im ok with the lack of food but the diet coke part is hard. After day 3 I should be good...

Yay we are entering the loser's bench on the same day! What time is your surgery? I was way addicted to caffeine so I made a deal with my NUT to cut back a little every other day until I was caffeine free. I haven't even had any decaf coffee yet. That didn't stop the headaches though but I know that was r/t to lack of food.. only 2 days of liquid diet? I am on Day 8/10. I wonder why surgeons vary so much?

I go in at 6:30 a.m. How about you?? Yeah only 2 days pre op liquid diet, thank goodness! 2 weeks after though. Are you nervous for Monday? I'm overall excited, but have a few of those thoughts of "should I really do this". They are short lived, but I do have them.

1030 AZ time; arrival @ 0830. I will be full liquids for 2 weeks.. I have never been more excited about cream of wheat!  I haven't had moments of should I do this but I have briefly thought maybe I should get the sleeve...but then I remember the reasons I selected RNY. Its just the nerves. I am excited and anxious. I have been busy cleaning and packing the kids stuff that today has flown by. I will be getting a mani/pedi tmrw in an attempt to stay calm.

We will have to keep in touch for our updates :) I thought for a short while about going with the sleeve, but decided that RNY was best as well :) I just hope and pray for no complications. Im ready to get into the gym and attack this new journey!! Woot Woot.

I waited about 3 weeks after my surgery and I was good to go on my coffee. I gave up alot of things but I must have my coffee. Or someone will pay!!! LOL I kiss my diet coke too but I haven't gone back on those.

I had to do a 2 week liquid diet before surgery, that sucked so bad!!!  Your caffeine withdrawals will taper down.  I started on coffee (decaf) shortly after surgery, now 5 months later I have 1 - 2 cups of regular coffee everyday........yum.  Good luck on your surgery, it will all be worth it soon.
