No Pre Op liquid diet?



Recommended Posts

Hi I am having my sleeve tomorrow! !! Lol I am using a very reputable and highly rated surgical team I am just curious, I was never requested to follow a 2 week liquid diet just told to keep my intake light the day before. Did anybody else here experience that?? It seems everyone I read about had to do 2 weeks liquid pre op

I am currently on my pre op diet. I am only required 7 days of 2-3 Protein Shakes and 1 small serving of lean Protein with veggies daily. Im having a sleeve surgery in Tijuana and am self paying. I, too, question my pre op diet plan as most people on this board are required to do a longer liquids only diet. My BMI is 35. I guess I need to trust in my surgeon and hope for the best. Surgery date is 9/2.

Good luck my BMI is 44 and I am having surgery in the states. After some further digging I found a few comments on here saying they also had no liquid diet just an 8 hour fast before surgery like I am I guess. But yes I guess we can only trust our surgeons.

Not having to wait for insurance approval will make it quicker but there are still things to be considered. How busy is the surgeon? You may have to wait a few weeks to get on the schedule. Also, some pre-op testing may still be required like blood work. It totally depends on the surgeon. Good luck to you!

My surgery is Tuesday. Only Monday is liquid diet. Then nothing after midnight. Not too shabby!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
