My surgery is scheduled for June 16 2015 and I have been working on losing some of the weight before the surgery and it is not going well whereas Im not gaining I havent been losing either I have changed my eating habits cut out the carbs more protein and more water and exercise I am scared that if I do not lose the surgery will be cancelled although I wasnt told by the surgeon or office that I must lose first several people I work with that has used the same surgeon have told me if I don't prove I can lose he wont do it.
Sounds like you're making the effort, which is what they want to see generally. Maybe you could log your food and beverages for a few days to show the NUT. If there are other things you could be doing, s/he can give you some advice. Best of luck! Mary
Thanks everyone I emailed my NUT yesterday she emailed me back this is the response....
"Hello-I'm glad you emailed-that is an important step:) Don't worry so much if you don't lose-the hope is that you don't gain more than anything. It sounds like you've made some positive changes-I will share this with Dr. Gluck. Don't worry-see you the 28th:)Erica"
I am relieved but am still going to work on losing before my preop appt on May 28
