My op is on Wednesday. I’m nervous as I’ve never had surgery before, but I’m trying to look past that and look forward to how things will be once I’ve had it done. 🙂 I’ve found the pre op diet hard this weekend as we’ve been to stay with friends who had a party. I told my close friends I’m having it done but not everyone else who was there. I found it really hard being around a large buffet and not having any and having to make excuses as to why I wasn’t drinking (I told them I was on antibiotics). I plated my food up prior to everyone arriving for the party so it didn’t look as obvious trying to prepare something later. It wasn’t easy by any stretch of the imagination but I got through it. Only 2 more days of it then I’m in for my op! 😀

Hi Lynne!!
Firstly please don’t worry about having surgery. I’ve had surgery and it isn’t as bad as it seems. I do understand your point though as I feel the same. However I’m a nurse and I can tell you the complications from surgery can happen though are rare. You’ll be in the most capable hands that have done this time and time again 🙂 I’m super excited for you!! Only 3 more sleeps!! 🙂 I can’t remember what they told me the diet would be after the band insertion. Do you know what you’ll be having?
You did sooooooo amazing at your party!!! Well done you!! I bet you’ll have lost loads of weight from the pre op diet alone!! How excited I am for you! 🙂 I’m back to clinic tomorrow to get weighed and start my pre op diet too so wish me luck 🙂 Will be thinking of you loads!!! The very best of luck on Wednesday…here’s to a brand new you!!!
