2 Days Before My Surgery-And I Cheated



Recommended Posts

I agree with icox they probably won't ask and it most important the night before surgery to prevent the possibility of aspiration from vomiting

I wouldnt worry I cheated every day of my pre op diet and I told my surgeon he said not to worry about that usually enlarged liver is in men and the last 5000 surgeries he's done he only had to stop once cause of the liver and it wasn't do to nutrition!!! however since I've had my surgery August 1st I haven't cheated or broke the rules once the possible outcomes are far more dangerous just make sure come surgery day your ready to comply 100%. Good luck and I wish you a speedy recovery!! :)

I am so thankful for all the support guys. When I woke up in recovery room, I thought I was dying. I feel much better now but I am still in a lot of pain.

Pain is temporary. You're life is changing and it's time to enjoy the process. You will feel better soon. Don't be afraid to take your pain meds as prescribed. Your body needs to heal...toughening through the pain is NOT the way to help your body. Take it easy....good luck!!

Don't stress yourself out like I did! I cheated and was so nervous about telling my surgeon. I cheated the DAY before! I was so mad at myself. I was still down 15 lbs from the start of the preop and apparently the liver is rarely a problem. It makes it easier on you and the surgeon if it's small as possible during surgery. My surgeon was very understanding. If you cheat, don't go off the deep end and eat just because you cheated. Once you realize your mistake, get right back on the liquid diet and exercise would be more beneficial than a laxative. Not everyone will admit they cheated. We are all human and no one is perfect! Good luck to everyone!

Started my preop liquid diet on aug 9th, and I have to admit the first 2 days I was on track but since then I have cheated. I really thought that I could do it but this is extremely difficult. Surgery day is on the 23rd and I'm so nervous but also disappointed that I did not follow the diet. All I can do now is try my best to follow this liquid diet for the next 5days and just hope and pray everything goes well. For all of you up and coming sleevers...I wish u much success throughout your journey;-)

You will be fine, but just so you know, the smaller your liver the easier it is for them to do your surgery, so go put on your walking shoes and walk it off :)

Hi Everyone,

So I am 3 days post op and all went well. Both Wed and Thursday I had a lot of pain, but today it seems to be getting better. I did tell him I cheated, he was ok, but told me for the post op diet liquids onl and no cheating the staples and stomach need to heal. So I worred and worked my self up for nothing, Thanks for all your support

I am four days out and have been in a lot of pain. Everything stinks to me, even cigarettes and I was smoking pretty much up to a week before surgery. I can't get enough liquids in I have no idea what to eat. Uhgg I'm a hot mess.
