Consent signing

All the consent forms have been signed, and I am going to participate in a research program that they are doing. It is going to take 5 years of my progress, but I am really interested in how the post op progress goes.

I also have my pre-op instructions. Liquid diet starts on August 19. 6 carnation instant breakfasts a day (sugar free). Three for meals and three for snacks. The only thing I find wrong is that I have to use 1% milk. GROSS. I drink Skim. But with it being flavored, I can and will do it. No food can pass my lips during that time. WOW...writing that just hit me, no food. I will become very crafty during this time to keep my mind off food. I can also only drink one cup of coffee a day. Thank goodness I have cut out the caffeine.

Well I will let you know how the diet and pre-op stuff goes.

Till tomorrow, 23 days until my surgery

Good luck with the diet and then the surgery! You are incredibly brave to go through with the surgery. HUGS. My thoughts are with you.
