I started the pre-op diet 3 days ago ready for my band to bypass revision on the 20th December. Starting weight 17 stone. 11lb gone already! The dietician said it wasn’t ok to use a mixture of diet products. I want to use CWP choc shakes x 2 and an Exante noodles. The pre-op book says 3 of these products can be consumed per day. The dietician said to use one or the other per day because of varying carbs etc. However, the carbs are lower in the noodles and both products have a third of daily nutrition requirements. My BMI is 35 and my patient coordinator was surprised I was advised to do 2 weeks of pre-op instead of 1. I didn’t see it as a bad thing as I was stuffing my face prior to this having the ‘last’ of everything as if I’m never going to eat food ever again. Received my pre-op assessment and was quite surprised to see all the tests that are required: ECG, chest x-ray, urine, breathing test and blood tests. Not had all of these with any of my previous ops! Hope I pass them all... I’ll be gutted if the op doesn’t go ahead! Feeling a mixture of emotions and nerves at the moment!
