Expected basket of approved liquids

Recommended Posts

The OCC's web site has the following information on it.

"We will provide you with written instructions from our Nutritionist and Surgeon along with a basket of approved liquids, oral medication for pain control and an acid blocker."

I didn't get the basket nor the acid blocker when I got banded last month. Has anyone else received these?

I had my surgery last year and at that time people were seeing that also and not getting it. That information is old and hasn't been updated on their website. I and many others did get a small fruit basket though. I believe it had like 3 pieces of fruit in it. Like I said...small. ;) That was nice, but unless you ate it the day before surgery, you kinda hope your companion will help themselves...lol ;)

I inquired about this prior to leaving and Carolyn told me

"Mrs. Ortiz, Dr. Ortiz's mother, used to give a little basket with goodies, but it got to be too much and that has not been done for a long time. "

Their web site is just way outdated.
