I am scheduled for surgery with Dr. Gomez at the mayo Clinic in JAX on June 29th. I am nervous about staying on a liquid diet for 4 weeks. I am not sure why the liquid diet duration is longer at Mayo, but that is the standard. Any and all advice is most welcome. Thank you! Karen

Wow four weeks that is a long time. You will be well and truly over liquids by your surgery date!

What variety in your liquids are you allowed?

Thanks for your reply. Clear Liquids for the first two days then full liquids until day 31. High Protein, low calorie, low fat, low sugar, no caffeine. So Protein Shakes, skim milk, broth....

How is your liquid diet going?

Hello 2shea, Thanks for asking. My ESG was moved out to 7/5. I was on clear liquids until yesterday. I was nauseous and crampy with a sore throat due to the tube going down my throat. I am able to drink the Protein Shakes with little to no discomfort. I feel satisfied with the shakes and have not had any cravings. I will let you know how I feel at the end of next week.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
