  1. Thanks everyone!! Don't get me wrong I have awesome friends!!! My friends are my family..but I just haven't told really anybody...I've told only 4 people..lol a friend who lives in Florida..I live in Chicago, and 3 of my other friends... the one person who would come with me to the hospital.. my bff...just left for london 2 weeks ago to go to medical school. Honestly I wish my 9 year old was allowed so he could just come with me.. I know I have support here and from my friends that know.. I just kinda wish I had someone to come with me....ya know?

    Hey does everyone have a scale at home?? Mine broke years ago and I never got another one.. do you think I should get another one or does that make people become too obsessed with weighing themselves?

    I didn't know that there was something like that on here.. hmmm... I wonder how we find it on here or set it up? That would be so much easier than this!

    Hopefully he will give you a fill! I have a friend who just moved here who needs to get fills so I'm trying to find a doc for her to do her fills..hopefully I will find someone because I heard my doc doesn't give very many fills...so I'll go elsewhere if I need too! I can't wait to hear what he says at your appt!!
  21. SMOKEY2112

    Is this stupid...?

    I'm seeing this late...but what did you wind up doing? Personally, if my doc didn't require it.. I sure as hell wouldn't have done it! Goodl luck with surgery tomorrow hon!!

    stressing out on my pre op diet

    Seriously...I'm on day like 6 and I just couldn't take it anymore... I'm cold all the time, I'm hardly drinking any Water..whereas before I drank water all the time.. I'm miserable..and it just sucks.. period! So I feel ya sister girl! So...I did a ton of research myself... read about everyone else's pre op diets on here and another site and googled "liver shrinking diet", etc... at the end of the day..the main focus of the diet is to shrink your liver...and the what of the diets have are high Protein, no carb, no sugars, etc... I even found some post where a woman's husband had the surgery a week after hers so he was on whatever day of the liquid diet when she had her surgery and he or she told the doc that he hated the liquid diet and then the doc said that he could cheat but don't eat any cheeseburgers..lol The woman said after that.. her husband had tuna sandwiches with mayo and cream of chicken Soup everyday until the last 2 days before surgery...he did only liquids for those..and he was just fine... So you know what.. after reading all that.. You do whatever you think is best for yourself.. but I'm not gonna lie.. I'm still doing my Protein shakes but I've also been having a few slices of ham and a few slices of cheese.. for the last 2 days. I'm sure I'll still be fine.. 2 days before the surgery.. I'll do just liquids... I understand why we have to do it.. but it just sucks when you see other people that their docs let them at least just do a low carb diet for 2 weeks or some only 2 days of a liquid diet..ya know. I feel better I got that off my chest..LOL

    WOW you're doing really good hon! Doctors sure do require different diets all for the same outcome...ya know? I wonder if anyone was supposed to do one diet..but from doing alot of research..just did something else and was okay?? Keep up the good work Lori!
