Pre-Op Liquid Diet - In Full Effect!



Recommended Posts

So, I waited until today, Day 3 of the liquid pre-op diet, to post. Yesterday was awful. Total lack of concentration at work, perpetual Headache, hunger....Then today. It's like a switch went off. I feel energized, positive. Still a bit of a headache but nothing like yesterday. I can do this!! How did everyone else do on their dreaded pre-op diet? Did you ever want to cheat? If I had been asked that question yesterday, I think I would have answered differently. Today, I know I can stay on course. I need to do this for me. Cheating would only be hurting myself and this whole journey is about finally loving and respecting myself! WHOOHOO!!

The first 2 days were definitely the worst for me! Since those are done for you, you should be sailing smoothly into surgery! Good luck!!

I was sick as a dog on the second day, then miraculously all the icky feeling went away on Day 3. Just hang in there. It will get better. Hugs.

Same here... by the end of the first week, I was drinking beef broth and feeling like I was having a filet mignon :-). The first two days were definitely the worst.

Please do it. It definitely helps you prepare for when you are out of surgery. I just had mine on Nov 6 still only consuming Clear Liquids , ice , ice pops , and Jello . Avoid anything with sugar it can give you dumping syndrome.

The pre op diet has made me very ill. I go back and forth between awful headaches and suffering from nausea. If I have a small amount of food head and and stomach issue goes away. Not talking full meals here by no means. so now I find myself 4 days out from surgery and not having successfully transitioned to liquid diet. I have lost 6 pounds but worry that it is not enough for the liver shrink thing. Stressing over pre-op appointment today. Ugg do not want to mess this up. my total weight loss so far before surgery is 33 pounds but sense first visit is only 18 in 5 months.
