  1. You'll probably start the liver shrinking diet soon, which can be difficult, but start to write some reasons down to help you through the mental side of that process. Your team will tell you exactly what you need to do. Make sure you follow it closely as much as you can.
    Also please know that everyone experience is different. After my insurance approved me and my surgeon gave me a date I started the liver shrinking diet and then a week before my surgery I had to have a day of testing. I had an EKG, blood work, and upper GI imaging. After the results I was cleared for surgery.
    After that I paid the initial surgeon fee which was around $500 something and then I paid the hospital a down payment of $2,700 and then after that I had my surgery a few days later.
    Does that help? More questions?

    Yes I start that tomorrow, luckily I don't have to pay anything and they did all that testing
