  6. Hi everyone! I am an Australian woman who is booked in to have a gastric bypass on the 11th April......yes three weeks and two and half days away (not that I'm counting!). I am a nurse who has gained a lot of weight over the past five years due to medication I have been on and always being hungry which is not fun. I am so excited about having the bypass done and cant wait to get my life back.....but also very nervous not so much about the surgery (as i trust my surgeon completely) but the pre and post surgery requirements Luckily I have a husband who is a nurse also and a very supportive friend and family network. I have been looking at the before and after photos here in the forum and it inspires me. Take care Shakira x
  7. Hi everyone, I am booked in for a gastric bypass for the 11 April 2016 and very excited. I am just in the process of organizing my Optifast and Chewable vitamins. I was given two vitamin names by the dietitian which were BN Multi and Nutrichew and have been researching them online. I am in Australia and the postage is quite high even from Australian sellers and the tablets are also costly. I was told I need to be on them for one week pre op once daily and then twice daily post op forever. I have also done some research and a lot of people say they taste horrible! I was wondering if has any experiences with taking these or other vitamins? Any recommendations and suggestions would be much appreciated Thanks so much x
