I've been lurking here for awhile. I joined this forum when I was trying to decide if I would jump in and get wls. The positivity and support I've found on this site, as well as all the information I've found helped me to choose RNY. It's taken about a year but here I am, looking forward to my newest journey. My surgery date is May 21st!

So, I was going to start my pre op diet Friday, (it's a 10 day diet, followed by a 1 day liquid diet the day before surgery) but... they pushed back my surgery date a week. It's now the 28th. They didn't schedule around the surgical assistant. :mellow: I know in the long run its not a big deal. It's only a week. It could be a lot worse, or I could have not gotten my insurance approval. It's still dissapointing though. I'm thinking of starting the prep diet on Friday anyway. Get a jump start on weight loss.

That sounds like a great idea !!  Sorry you have to wait an extra week, I am sure it is disappointing.  Welcome to Thinner Times and good luck on your journey

I'm sorry you've had your surgery bumped back a week but it sounds as if you've got your head in the game.
