Dr. Kelly's Patients Pre-Op Diet



Recommended Posts

I started my pre-op diet today since I was able to move up my surgery date from December to October 6th. I'm starting a little early becaue I'm hoping to lose 15 lbs to get my BMI under 50 and save $500.

I notice most other patients were able to have Protein drinks but on the Pre-Op diet sheet I received from Omar, I didn't see them listed. I emailed him just now but was hoping to get some feedback from you all in case he doesn't get back to me before tomorrow.

Thank you!

My surgeon, Dr. Kim, requires 2 weeks of liquid diet. The Protein shakes must be Meal Replacement. I am using GNC Lean shake 25. Dr. Kim has me on an 800 calorie diet. I am allowed to have sugar-free popsicles, Chrystal Light, Jello, one serving of low fat-low sodium chicken broth a day. All that goes in my mouth must be sugar-free.

I'm finishing day 3 tonight. I lost 7 lbs. Mostly Water weight, I'm sure.

Good luck!

I got sleeved by Dr. Kelly 3 weeks ago and Omar said I was allowed to have 1 Protein Shake a day on my pre-op diet (even though it didn't say it on the diet paperwork). Good luck with your surgery!

I thought the pre-diet was similar to the post-op but I have heard that you receive the post-op stuff before you leave. I'm gonna email Omar and ask for it. I have also heard that it's kind of vague. I found the pre-diet kind of vague and confusing too.

I did my pre-op diet with Dr Kelly from the 1st week in May to May 25th. My BMI was over 50, so I was on the mushies. Mashed cauliflower, mashed potatoes, chicken broth, sugar free Jello, low sodium V8, apple juice, sugar free pudding, cinnamon applesauce, basically any veggie or fruit pureed without added fat or sugar. I lost from 310 to 285 3 weeks on the mushies. The last 3 days was only Clear Liquids though.

I too have a BMI of over 50...how long were you on the diet? My surgery is 10/6 and I need to lose 14 lbs. So far I've lost 2 lbs and I'm having short term memory loss (forgetting that I got gas, purchased things etc) and after a trip to the doc, she said it was diet. Did you have any problems?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
