Pre-Surgery

11 posts in this topic

Today is just the beginning. I am beginning my 10 day liquid diet today, pre-surgery. My surgery is on May 25, 2017, so I still have a long road ahead of me. I am concerned with surgery and the first few weeks after surgery. Just wanted to sign up for this page so I have somewhere to look at when I am feeling down!

Welcome to Thinner Times Elaina!

The pre-op liquid diet can be tough but once you make it through the first 2-3 days, it does become easier so hang in there and follow the programme.

Dear Elaina, congratulations on the decision to go forward and the journey ahead. There was just a posting by Raeme - 2 years before and after pictures. She looks healthy, strong, and in great shape now. My wife was really wowed by the difference.

I'm only 8 weeks out from my VSG, and have found the insights and bits of advice here very helpful. With any luck you'll find some of the same.

Welcome to the forum!

I have to agree with the above statement. The pre-op diet suddenly got a lot easier (for me at least) from day 3. Just hang in there!

Welcome, Elaina. There are so many great stories to read about here on TTF. I spent the several weeks leading up to my surgery poring over the blogs, before and after photos, and Q&A here :)
