    Hi does anyone know how long you can ss before an operation, I am due for a circumferential tummy tuck in 3 weeks and have been away and put on a bit weight which I would like off before my op and just wondered if it was safe and if so how long before my op would I stop ss. thanks x

    ask your CDC bish I think they'll say surgery is surgery I'm afraid. I may have to have keyhole surgery soon (gallstones) and I was told 3 months.

    It is 3 month after surgery because I had breast uplift and was told no ss after surgery. But not sure about before so I need help on that one please.

    Hi

    You should be on 1200 cals minimum 2 weeks prior to surgery then you wait until three months afterwards.

    There are some exceptions to this.

    Your CDC can contact the medical department for guidance as each case can be different.

    Yeah I had my gallbladder out (keyhole) and used ss to lose weight for the op. Then afterwards I couldn't re start for 3 months as your body needs time to heal x
