    four days post-op

    You are in the hardest part of journey for me! Stay focused on where you will be in 6 months! DO NOT CHEAT ON PRE OP DIET! it is extremely important to shrink your fatty liver as much as possible! Your surgery will go smoother and your recovery will be faster! you can and must do this to survive! IF YOU DONT CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE YOU WILL DIE AN EARLY DEATH! I hate to be soo blunt and harsh but it is the true!!!! You will fight harder and stick to plan if you truly realize you are in a fight for you life! I've been there!!!!
