Pre-Op Stage



Recommended Posts

So I started my preop diet today... never did I think my body could give me so much pain.. and those darn hunger cramps and headaches and I have to take supplements too. Any advice on getting through this stage.I find that I'm hungry every four hours and after taking my Calcium supplements the hunger gets worse. I am taking my daily intake of Water.

I'm on day 2 of pre-op, I know what your feeling all too well. The headaches are the worst. I just keep drinking more Water and carrot chips are my new best friend lol. We'll get thru it like many have before us and many will after! Positive thinking!

Think about the end goal. The surgery. The new life.

You can eat potato chips.. lucky you all I can eat is four scoops of Vega all in one Protein Shakes and low glycemic index vegetables.

No not potato chips, carrot chips. Just raw carrots cut like chips lol. I can have raw raw and steamed vegetables and Protein shakes, and one "meal" a day.

My friend used the patch Vitamins during her pre op diet and until she was eating more at 2-3 months. She couldn’t stomach the pill/chewable vitamins will that little in her stomach.

I just started the pre op diet aswell and totally know the feeling you're going through. I just try and take it a day at a time and just figure it'll get better/easier as time goes on.

When I started my pre-op diet (back in Dec.), I drank a lot of Water also, that in itself helped my hunger pains. Ladies you both have this. The end is so worth it. Hang in there you've got this.👍👍👍
