I started my pre-op diet last week. My surgery is scheduled for next Tuesday 4.10.12. I am scared that my surgery is going to be postponed because I didn't lose enough on the pre-op diet.
I met with the surgeon about 3 weeks ago. I weighed 288. Last week I went to see the nutritionist and I was 297!! I really didn't overdo it eating. I stopped taking the phentermine that the other doc put me on to help me lose weight. In my preop diet booklet that my surgeon gave me it says that I need to lose 10LBS while on the preop diet or my surgery will be postponed. So here's my problem. Do I need to lose the 10LBS from when I saw the surgeon last or when I saw the nutritionist?
I have been busting my butt this past week. I have gone to the gym everyday, on Saturday I went twice. The pre-op diet is not liquid, but I need to stay below 1200 calories. I've been eating between 500-800 calories including my protein shake. The foods I am eating are high in protein, low in calories. I am just so frustrated because I have been trying so hard and I'll be devastated if my surgery is postponed. Today I weighed myself and I was 288. PLUS I think that time of the month is coming up.
