How Much Weight Did You Lose On Preop Diet?



Recommended Posts

I was lucky just had to do 2 days and the last day I had to take a laxative just to clean myself out. I had to drink this gross stuff. I don't know if I could have done more then 2 days. dr said he did not think I had a big liver. I had to do Clear Liquids for 2 weeks and mushies for 3 next week I can eat regular foods next week not sure what to.start with. I have not deviated from any of his instructions afraid to hurt my sleeve I am proud of myself that I have not been tempted to try something there is really nothing I am craving. I used to love sweets no desire now

@mina- the doc wanted me to start right away when I did my pre op class. It comes out to 16 days. I have co-morbid conditions (PCOS and type 2 diabetes)' date=' and before I started the liquid diet I was 347. My doc felt it was best to do the liquids to minimize any liver damage and to try and reduce any fatty liver issues. I met someone else here in St. Louis that had the same surgery, same doc, an she didn't have to do liquids. I have seen ppl do 3 days, 7 days, 14 days, and even 21 days![/quote']

I have PCOS. Too and I'm looking forward to a reduction in symptoms after surgery ..i hope it does help ...

Thanks for the information. I was given 6 boxes of New direction with seven packets in there so that will cover 14 days pre-op. I see the doctor next Thursday and get my surgery date. I was hoping for May 21st, since he's out of two hospitals, and does surgeries at my hospital on Mondays, but that would mean starting the liquid diet on Friday the 11th and it would be only 11 days of shakes (we're not allowed anything but the shakes & Water & crystal light). I was 299 at first appointment and I am 240 now. They estimate most people lose 15-20 pounds on the two week pre-op shake diet. I have actually been on Pure Protein 100% whey shakes for Breakfast for six months now, and I am on a low carb diet and I keep my calories between 800-1000 a day. Unfortunately, the following Monday is probably out since it's Memorial Day, though I'd be fine having it that day. I suppose patience until next Thursday and I'll know whether it's 10 day or 14 day pre-op. (I'm really praying for 10 day).
