Okay, so this is the second day of my pre-surgery liquid diet. I'm actually doing fine on the diet itself--come up with some really interesting ways to get plenty of fluids and still drink stuff that tastes really good. What's driving me absolutely insane is the headache.

I often wake up with headaches in the morning anyhow--not something that is due to caffeine dependence, either--but my usual remedies are not working, mostly because of the fact that I can't take over-the-counter headache remedies.

I've tried sleeping through it all, but I've had a non-stop headache since Sunday morning. It's not a migraine--I already tried my prescription-strength Migraine medication, and it didn't even provide temporary relief. I just can't kick this blasted headache, and my doctor's office was closed today for the holiday.

What I'm finally doing this evening is treating it as a 'classic migraine,' and I've caved in and made some really strong caffeinated tea, and taken some Tylenol (both no-nos on this diet), but I'm in so much pain I have to do SOMETHING. :)

I'm sound-sensitive and light-sensitive, and every time I stand upright or have to bend over, I feel like I want to scream--except that would make the stupid thing worse.

Has anyone else run into this, and if so, how did you deal with it? I'm going to call my doctor first thing tomorrow, but I've got to sleep tonight. :eek:

Hope you got some answers from your doctor's office. I had a headache early in my diet. I took an excedrine Migraine and no problems since. 5 days to go. Hang in there.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
