Hi all! Hope everyone had a healthy Thanksgiving and didn't eat too much! Quick question: I know I need to get the chewable versions of the multivitamins and supplements at first, but when do people start transitioning back to the regular pills that

I’m meeting with my surgeon on November 14 to schedule my surgery date. I was wondering everyone’s thoughts on whether I should do it during the holidays or after Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thoughts?

I'm in the final stages of completing my pre-op requirements and am meeting with my surgeon on 11/14/18 to schedule the surgery. I'm curious what others have done in preparation for surgery BEFORE the 2 week pre-op diet? So far I've cut out caffeine
