girl_barrie Posted July 19, 2004 Report Share Posted July 19, 2004 Hi there everyone! I am sooo excited, and a little bit nervous, as I am 3 days pre-banding. I have tried to go on a liquid diet (Ice blended Mocha's are liquid, right???), and have made some mediocre soup, and froze some for after my surgery. I couldn't stay completely away from solids, and have had some really good food - but then again, if I had any kind of control over my eating, I wouldn't need the band - now would I? I've read alot of the posts on the bandster groups, and my mom is 2 years banded, so I think that I have a good grasp on what to expect post - op, but I have some questions about pre - op, and during healing stuff. 1. What are some really beneficial things that I can do to make my surgery go easier? I know about the liquids to try to shrink my stomach for a more snug fit, but are there other things? 2. What are the best tasting and most nutritional ready-made juices and soups for the post op period? I also like to cook, so if anyone has any favorite recipes, I'd appreciate them as well. 3. I use Shaklee vitamins on a regular basis, and know that I will have difficulty with pills - what are the alternatives, and for how long will it be an issue? 4. What should I pack to bring with me? Thanks so much for the benefit of your experience. Barrie Dr. Ortiz 7/21/04 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
