Today I'm on a clear liquid diet bc ds surgery is tmrw. May sound silly but, I wanted to check and see if Bone Broth was ok to drink vs chicken broth? I know bone broth has bone marrow and pureed organs in it. I just had this sinking feeling come over me that I should check before I drank some. Thanks so much!

No residue or remnants. The sodium is 90 mg too much?

That's fine, its not high at all. If you are using it for clear fluids after the surgery, you probably won't be able to drink too much of it any way. I had three clear Fluid days after my ESG, I started with 1/2 cup broth for day one, then for the next two days I had 2 x 1/2 cups broth per day along with my other fluids.

Good luck, hope it all goes well for you

My surgeon said I could go to town the night before surgery; have any kind of "last meal" i wanted. It wasn't going to make a bit a difference. The reason they put you on such a strict diet pre-surgery is to shrink your liver so they have more room to move around in there. But your last meal isn't going to enough time to change things one way or the other, so don't worry about it.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
