I just made my final decision to go with OCC now waiting to see what dates are available! Super excited! Typically how long do you have to wait for your surgery date?

I had a passport (you can get a passport in a few days, if you pay extra, at least in Canada) the earliest appointment I could get was 1 month away from the time I emailed that I was ready. I go March 23rd!!

Hello, I am just now booking my surgery. Hoping the 4th or 5th of April. I am 50 and just a little nervous. Has anyone received the pre-op diet? If so what does it entail? 

Hi 

I'm scheduled for the 5th. I've got giant butterflies!  You will get are email from the nutritionist it tells you how much weight she wants you to lose before surgery.  She told me she wants me to be in ketosis and recommended Atkins phase 1.  I'm following low carb diet with 1-2 shakes, but the ones I have are too high in carbs so  I have ordered the Vitaleph products and they are in the mail now.  Lots of veggies, no fruit, no carbs, and very little fat.  

Im also tracking everything I eat with MY Fitness Pal which really helps!  4 weeks to go!

I am arriving the 3rd. Surgery on the 4th. At this point i just want it all done. The mental side of this is really interesting. Admitting I'm addicted to food is very embarassing. I am a very successful confident woman. I am very disciplined in every other part of my life but food. The mental torture routine I have down to a PHD level. So this is the last option to get control of this part of my life.
