    I am due to have an operation in September and mentioned it to my CDC who told me that I would need to come off the diet for 3 months after to heal properly.

    I know my health comes 1st but I am really worried about coming off of the plan so early into my weight loss with so much to lose. I am also really worried about regaining some of what i have and will lose up until that point :(

    It is not a major op, it is for the removal of a Parathyroid Adenoma from my neck using the minimally invasive technique and when i asked the nurse how long until I would be healed and up and running again and she said a couple of weeks after.

    So...I was wondering, if just a 2 week break from CD whilst healing then a return to a higher plan like the 1000cal one, would be ok? Or if anyone else has any experience or knowledge on this.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks, Claire :)

    I think CD are pretty strict about the 3 months thing. Your CDC is really far better qualified to answer it than people on here in this case. If she says 3 months you should really go with that. Besides its unlikely she'll entertain you within that period. You could always ask her about the possibility of 1000 plan but please do go by what she says.
