    It doesn't have to be Optifast. There are many other very low calorie diet options that you could choose from. Maybe talk to the dietician who consults on behalf of your surgeon?

    I didn't mind the optifast, it was so much better than I thought it was going to be lol. I hate the vanilla one though, I think I overdid it the first few days. Strawberry was my fave.

    Optifast is gross to be honest. When i hot my band out i had to do something similar buy it was food based. ..I lost 7kgs in 2 weeks.
    No pre tests but I did just have complete blood work and liver ultrasound done by my gp and the results were all on the referral

    What's the difference between the sleeve and bypass. Can I be rude and ask why you've chosen the bypass over the sleeve?

    Sleeve works via restriction, bypass works via restriction and malabsorption.
    Sleeve isn't recommended if you have reflux already as it can make it worse.
    Bypass is not recommended if you have malabsorption issues already (like brittle bones, osteopenia etc)

    Default Choosing a Dr for gastric sleeving

    I had the sleeve 2 years ago. Best thing I ever did. I lost 52kg and have maintained for a year.

    It's a long story but I am happy to share my experiences with anyone. Please feel free to PM me with any questions.

    But it is definitely something I do not regret at all !
