Terrified that Surgery willl be cancled



Recommended Posts

So I have been on my pre op diet aka liver reduction diet since almost 2 weeks ago. I have only lost about 9 pounds but gained one back (mostly because an all Protein diet can block you up.). I am so scared that I will go through all of this and be told that my liver is too fatty and they can't do the surgery. Has anyone experienced this or heard of it happening. I have not cheated on my diet once and have only gone over 30 g of carbs a couple of times and that was by very little like 5-10. I am sorta freaking out.

I am on day 11 of my pre-op protein/Low carb diet. I'm down 5 1/2 lbs and have not cheated either. I've been allowed 40 carbs and I have been very diligent at keeping it there or below. Try not to worry, I'm sure your surgery will go off without a hitch! I'm so ready for Monday. I haven't heard of anyone's surgery being stopped due to the pre-op diet unless of course someone were to keep eating the carbs and fail at following the diet. Good luck!!

Stick to it. Also take a Fiber capsule or stool softener. Maybe that will make a difference. Good luck.

I'm on my 4th day of preop and have lost five pounds. My doctor didn't mention anything about watching my carbs, just Protein and calories.

What pre-op diets are your doctors recommending? Mine will have me doing the opti-fast for 12 days (I think strictly 4 shakes and 1 bar, or 5 shakes---plus sugar free clear liquids)...then the 2 day clear liquid diet.< /p>

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
