Does Kaiser Require Pre-Op Diet?



Recommended Posts

Hi, I began the WLS process with Kaiser in the beginning of August. I'm still a long ways off from surgery, but was wondering if Kaiser requires a pre-op diet? I need to lose 7 lbs. I was able to lose 2 pounds last month, but stress eating has got me putting the weight back on and then some. Is it a requirement to lose the weight prior to the surgery?

I had my surgery at Kaiser South San Francisco and my surgeon required me to lose 20 pounds before he would schedule a date. I didn't have to do a liquid diet but they did give me a pre-op diet plan. It may seem like the process takes a long time but it's over before you know it! Best to you.

I have kaiser. And during the options class they want you to lose 20% of your weight when you start the class..you are put on the scale before every class.

They want you to lose 20% of your weight. Many times the surgeon will NOT do the the surgery if you gain. They want to see that you are serious about weight loss. You should be able to lose some while you take the options class. I only lost 15 during options class but should have lost 45. Like I said, as long as you dont gain any weight you should be ok...but ultimately it is up to the surgeon.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
