What did you enjoy as your pre-op liquid diet?



Recommended Posts

Since my doctor will be putting me on a liquid diet one week pre-op, what should I stock up on?

What did you like to Drink?

I'm a couponer, so hoping to find good deals on stuff & put aside until the dreaded day comes. So far I have purchased three 4-packs of Muscle Milk. My store had them on sale & I had a $2 coupon, bringing the price down to $4.99 for a 4 pack (which comes out cheaper than Sam's Club cost.)

I only noticed the regular Muscle Milk at first & purchased the vanilla flavored one, it has 3 grams of sugar. Is that a no-no?

Yesterday I returned & found two 4 packs of coffee flavored & it was a light muscle milk & has 0 grams of sugar, so I purchased both of those...but I'm afraid to buy anything else yet, till I get some reviews on what else I can drink & if you've liked it.

Can you please share with me what you had 1 week post op in liquids & what you tried/liked/didn't like? Thank you!

Well..."like" is a strong word. Today was day 1 of 7 for me. I have Premier Protein, and the nectar Fuzzy Naval (tried first time today). This isn't fun, but I'm still alive. My husband just brought home SF Jello cups, and that tastes like heaven right now!

So depending on your surgery date-- I emailed a bunch of different Protein Shake companies and told them that I would be working on my health and would like to try their product. I had about 4 or 5 companies send me samples. One company sent me about 20 packets and recipes of things to make with their powder. It's a great way to try. BEWARE--- What you like on pre-op liquid diet will more than likely not be the same as what you like on your post-op liquid diet. I didn't like a lot of things post-op that I kind of enjoyed pre-op. Your taste eventually comes back, that's the good news :) Good luck to you!!
