Liquid Preop Diet



Recommended Posts

I'm trying to locate what is actually allowed on the preop liquid diet. Can anyone share this with me?

Everyone's preop is different (unless you know someone who has your surgeon).

Even that isn't a reliable source as many of the surgeons who require such diets will vary the requirement for different patients.

Yes, check with your surgeon's team as only they can tell you what they want. Such diets can vary from only Clear liquids to "full" liquids (whatever "full" is) to some compromise plan of liquids for some meals and some form of healthy real food for other meals to no particular requirement at all. My doc's plan, for instance, was for Clear Liquids (including Jello and the like) the day before surgery.

My surgeon requires a 2 week pre-op diet with 3-4 Premier Protein shakes a day and 1 cup of skim milk. Check with your surgeon or your nutritionist. [emoji3]

Clear liquids, anything you can see through. Full liquids, all other liquids.

Some programs include all kinds of gloppy things like puddings and yogurts as a "full liquid" while others go by a more classic definition (such as you can drink it through a straw....but don't use a straw!) So, it's another area where one needs to defer to one's surgical team as to what they want. It's an area where things like that never came into question on my doc's program as it never had a liquid only stage.

Hi, I see your a KBI patient, they require their Protein Shakes prior to surgery, as well as a cup of low sodium broth each day, sugar free popcicles, sugar free Jello, propel, and lost of Water and work on getting off the caffene. You will learn all of this in your pre-op class. After surgery you can use any Protein Shake as long as it meets the Protein, sugar, calorie ratio. Good luck!
