Thanks @@Liv2Ride

Mines Is April 10th I'm 3 days in my 2 week liquid diet, And it is harsh lol


Hi ChrysChry89

You can do it!! Stay focused and keep the end goal in mind. When I feel hungry I'll read success stories or look at before and after pictures for motivation.

My doctor has me on a one week diet consisting of 2 Protein shakes and 1 sensible meal with SF Jello, SF pudding or SF Popsicles as a snack. Today is my 6th day into the diet. It's rough at times. It seems that everywhere I look I see pictures of food or advertisements of food.< br />One week from today on Monday April 6th is when I go on a 48 hour all liquid diet before surgery.

Thanks so much I would keep that in mind...I AM NOT A QUITTER i can do this lol

April 15th here. Excited and ready. Thankfully no pre-op diet for me. I asked and was told no, not necessary.

Hello everyone I am brand new to the forum and I am having a gastric sleeve surgery TOMORROW! I am feeling good about getting the surgery over with but a touch apprehensive about how difficult "eating" is going to be afterwards......also my surgeon is not sending me home with any pain meds .....ZERO I will be spending 2 days in the hospital but after that he says tylenol is all I'm allowed because he wants me to feel if anything is going wrong and he says pain meds could tempt me to eat things I shouldn't while healing.....any words of advice or encouragement would be great :)

My surgeon said I would be spending 2 nights in the hospital as well. Although I have pain meds prescribed not sure I will be using them though if I really dont need to. Pain meds can constipate you. At my last visit I did ask about pain and they compared it to my 3 c sections. They said the pain would be less than the pain I felt from them. My first c section hurt a lot and I took pain meds but my incision was infected. My 2nd and 3rd c sections where not too bad. There was pain but tolerable pain and i did not take pain meds. I have heard other who have already had their surgery say the pain wasn't to bad. So I think you will be fine with tylonol. Just think postitive. You will be okay and you will do great.

RammerJammer, EricF

Congrats on your upcoming surgery dates. I think we're all feeing a bit overwhelmed at this moment.

Can't wait for the new "us".

RammerJammer, have you started your pre-op diet yet? How are you doing?

EricF, your the first I've heard of that doesn't have to be on a pre-op diet. They say the whole purpose of the pre-op diet is to shrink the liver & make surgery safer.

I'm still 3 weeks out (April 21st). I started my own pre-op plan a few days ago. Protein Shakes for Breakfast and lunch, then small dinner of whatever I'm fixing for my family. So far it's not been too bad and I'm down almost 2kg since Sunday. Of course I'm still exercising about 1.5-2 hrs 5 days a week. This is encouraging since I've not seen the scale move since December.

Roughly how much weight did people loose doing a 2 week pre op diet? Good luck to all ????

I'm on day 13 of 14 of liquids (surgery Thursday) and as of this morning I'm down 8.5 lbs. I'm a relative lightweight, though... I've seen some people say they've lost 15+ on the 2 week liquid diet. Good luck!

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
