the liquid part is the hardest part! I would imagine harder preop - but plenty hard post op too.

hang in there. I don't know what criteria doctors use to make that call - but you want to follow their instructions to have a safe surgery.

I'm on Protein shakes too for two weeks (this is middle of day four for me). My doctor said I could add some low-sodium chicken broth if I needed to. Day one was hard - hence the looking into broth. But mostly I'm doing okay except today I have been craving a soft pretzel like no one's business. I just keep telling myself to focus and stay on track.

Good luck!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
