Default Surgery in a couple of weeks

As some of you may know, I am going to have bariatric surgery, February 8, and I begin a liquid diet for 2 weeks prior to my surgery. I am trying to shrink my liver as much as possible, so the Doctor can take 2/3 of my stomach out. For the last 5 years, I have really started putting the weight on, a lot of it is due to my Lymphedema. I am in so much pain in my lower extremities, lower back, knees, feet etc. So, I have been research on this, not going to be fun, but need to do something. Tired of not being able to enjoy life right now. Wish me luck for my success.

Praying for,you Dennis! I think only having liquids for 2 weeks is the worse part! My step dad did 2000 of those surgeries over the years. Amazing how thin most of the patients became. You will do fine. I'm dreading my fasting and prep for my first colonoscopy next month

Prayers sent. Hang in there and keep a positive outlook about your surgery.

Have had a few family members do this. The most successful ones are the ones that had lots of food counseling before and after the surgery.

Follow the Dr and dietitian instructions, pray and hold strong. You will do well!!!
