Apr 04, 2010It's official....April 23rd is the big day!! I have already started the pre-op diet, I'm actually 4 days in and not bad so far, plus I'm down 6 pounds already! Of course the diet is not great but I was so prepared for feeling like I want to die on it that it hasn't been as bad as I prepped myself for, but I still have some time before surgery!
I went to my pre-op last week and it seems my dr is more favorable for me to have RNY than lap-band. I never, ever considered RNY and was dead against it for myself. After talking to the dr and getting family/friends support I am now leaning more towards RNY. I have an appt with my nut tomorrow to talk about diet after RNY to make my final decision. I have also solicitated advice from friends that had RNY and would be happy to hear others after RNY daily eating habits/meals.
I will post when I make my final decision on RNY vs. lap-band.
