My surgery is tomorrow Tuesday May 17th so I too have been on Clear Liquids for the past week.

It really sucks.

Why do some have no clear liquid diet and others have 2 weeks? I've read the purpose is to shrink your liver so shouldn't it be the same for everyone?

My surgery was May 17th also.

When I am at home comfortably sitting my mind starts planning all the thing I think I can do. Because I don't feel tired in that moment my planned activity turns out too be way to much.

For example, this afternoon I drove 20 mins to my primary care physicians office to get a (non related) issue treated. Stood in line at counter for 5 minutes, sat in waiting room for 5 minutes then moved to exam room. Time spent in exam room was probably 15-20 minutes then I started to feel pain in my stomach. I sipped some Water but it didn't help much. So I went straight home without doing the 4 other activities on my list.

Took a pain med and sleep for 2 hours so I didn't make it to an evening support group meeting.

So I'm not sure if your body weakness is the same. I don't feel all the time like my body is weak, only after a physical activity when the pain flares up.

I hope this helps you!

I had surgery May 18th as well and I only needed to do the clear liquid diet the day before. My surgery was moved up all of a sudden so I didn't really do the liver shrinking diet but apparently since I am so young and do not drink, they didn't really see it as an issue.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
