Surgery scheduled for August 22, 2013

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have my gastric bypass surgery scheduled for August 22.  I am so excited, its unreal.  I start a three week liquid diet in 2 days, I have lots of determination so I know I can do it.  Anyone else here, having surgery on that date?

I am having the sleeve on the 19th. I have a mandatory class I have to take on Wednesday that is going to be a pain to go to since it is right in the middle of my sleep time. (I work nights).

Great, there are others here going through this around the same time.  I started my pre-op diet, which consists of nothing except 5 bottles og Ensure-high protein, 1.5 cups skim milk, and 5 glasses of zero calorie beverages.  I am now on day three and its not too bad.  Yes there are times I want food but I think of the upcoming surgery and that stops me from cheating.  I lost 9 lbs in two days on this diet.
