The date is set!

Hurray!!!!!  The date is set!  April 23rd!!!!!!

I went to the office today and picked up my pre-op diet shake mix, and I have to admit a feeling of total dread set in.  This is it.  This is what I have wanted for so long, and now it's about to come true!  And soon...two weeks...

I am so glad that I have an ubber supportive husband and a wonderful therapist who will help me work through all this...but is there really any good substitute for a Large Diet Coke and a McDouble?


  1. I didn't have to do a pre-op diet, I am curious what kind of shakes did they give to you?

    I had my last diet coke the day before my surgery......thought I'd never be able to give it up but I tell you there is life after diet coke lol June 19th will be three 3 years since I've had one. I'd say it took me a solid year before I didn't crave it anymore. =)

    You can do it! Congrats on the date!


    1. Breane,

      I am using Bariatric Advantage...they sell for about $53 on for a 35 serving bag. I got Chocolate and Vanilla (there is also strawberry and banana) because I was told that those two flavors allowed for the most flavor combos....chocolate peanut butter, white chocolate raspberry, creamsicle...I can add fruit, nuts, or protein bars to them and should have 4-5 a day along with 60oz of H2O...I am drinking two more diet cokes and then that will be that! Fingers crossed!

  2. OMG! How exciting! :) April 23 will be here soon. Don't cheat on the pre-op diet. Its super important to shrink your liver before surgery.
