Tips for Surviving Pre-Op Diet


4 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I'm brand new here, but I can think of no better crowd to ask: Do you have any tips or tricks that got you through the pre-op diet? It's only been three days, but I am so hungry and my energy levels are in the basement. I can barely focus at work and I know that my normal activities, like playing tennis, are going to be severely hindered in the run-up to the surgery. Any advice that anyone has to keep this under control is appreciated.

Keep yourself busy! I scrubbed my house from top to bottom which had the added benefit of being one less thing to worry about after I got home from surgery but also kept me distracted during the pre-op diet.

The good news is that you're right on the cusp of the initial carb withdrawal symptoms easing up. Keep pushing - you've got this!!

Thanks! I've been keeping myself busy like you said. You were also right about the withdrawal. It's much more manageable now, but my energy level is still really low. I ended up skipping tennis practice yesterday because I still felt pretty weak. Maybe I will be in better shape for my Saturday class.
