Remember your bowels may not work right after, get your fluids in, it helps things stay soft enough for the day💩comes.

I heard it’s good to have a stool softener at home for when you need it. I would also say broth and cream Soups for post op diet. Oh, and a strainer.

We are on the same day! When do you start your pre op diet?

I started my pre OP diet on the 22nd. Pickles usually do the trick for me and I was told I could have them during the liver diet and could even sip Pickle Juice during my liquid phases.

Hi Fabulous February Folks! I have a question about what you think is OK on the liquid diet (all-liquids). Did you hear or get info from your nutritionist that these are acceptable when on liquids ONLY: chocolate milk, Vitamin Water Zero, and any Soup (for example, Progresso) as long as the soup is drained through a tiny wire strainer? I was at the grocery store today trying to acquire a few basics for the liquidification 😀and saw these items. I thought I'd ask the group before I buy them. Note I do have some Unjury chicken broth, but I figure wouldn't the other Soups just be broth as well once strained? Maybe more flavorful? Thanks!

They are letting me eat meat for mine. No sugar, carbs, fruit. Then two days prior, liquid only

Wow, that's pretty liberal. I have two weeks of liquid only, including broth but not strained Soups.

I have been making my own broth with a whole boiled chicken in the crock pot with vegetables and fresh spices. Then I strain everything and only use the broth as my Soup. Taste great and filling without carbs and sugars. Sodium might be a lil high but you can control that.

You can put an egg white or Eggbeaters into your boiling broth and make egg drop Soup. Progresso Soups, I would go with only the Light varieties, wouldn't want to go over maybe 15 carbs and try to stay under 100 calories if possible. That's why making your own is so good, you can control what goes in, and spice it if necessary yourself.

My surgery is on February 11. I have seen a couple others with the same date! I have been on Optifast liquid diet since January 26th until February 8th, then only clear fluids until surgery. The first 3 days were hard, the hunger was significantly less yesterday and I am hoping today is much better. Other than the hunger I have been so tired so I have spent the last 3 days on the couch sleeping on and off all day. 4th day now and I haven't been on the couch yet! Progress!

My surgery date is February 8, 2019. I am super excited. I thought I was going to have to start over because of new insurance but they were able to get a prior authorization so I could still get it at the hospital that doent have a contract with my insurance.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
