Surgery Scheduled!



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!! I've been lurking around here for months while I've been going to all my appointments and getting everything ready for the big day. Finally, I've been told that I have the insurance approval and they've scheduled my surgery for Feb. 9th. I'm excited, hopeful and very nervous. My doctor doesn't require a liquid diet (except for the day before the surgery) but as I've been reading, a lot of doctors do require it... so I figured I start a liquid diet as well, just to make things easier for him during the surgery. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the great posts. I have learned so much from all of you these last few months.

        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.
