Sorry to hear this. I've been dealing with colitis most of my life and it can get exhausting and confusing. I'd ask my doc if this weight-loss aid is safe. Does your GI office have a nutritionist on staff? That could be a good resource to help you get to a healthy weight for your surgery. Sending good wishes for a speedy recovery and being flare-free!
