    You'll certainly need to stop SS but I don't know the whole answer.

    But in replying here I'll be bumping your message up so that someone more knowledgable can help you!

    Hi,

    You need to be on 1200 cals 2 weeks prior to the op and cannot restart any CD plan until 3 months afterwards.

    However, depending on the op and your post op assessment the restart time could be shorter. Discuss this with your CDC.
