My sleeve is in may. I have been waiting since september. My weight has been up 7 Lb and down 6 Lb. Nothing changes. . so i ask my surgeon to give me the pre_ op liver shrinking diet now so that i can loose some weight. So he tells me that he doesnt require that liquid diet. He said only to stay off fats n carbs. I would like to know if anyone can put a copy of their liver shrinking diet menu up so that i can follow n begin my process n see. I need to know if this works for me since i have tried everything n nothing is working.. Thank you in advance if anyone can help

I had two Protein Shakes (breakfast and dinner) and cottage cheese and deli turkey for lunch out of this pre op.

Thanks so much. I will try it n see how it goes. Scared to go into surgery without this diet. I have read that many sleevers have gone into surgery n the surgeon had to stop in the middle of the procedure because the liver had too much fat n it would be considered high risk. thanks again

My surgeon did not require the diet either. He is a veteran at this surgery. But I was also wanted to do the diet just in case, so I just had low sodium broth, sugar free tea, coffee, Water on repeat for about 5 days prior to the mandated two days of Clear Liquids only .

Good luck !

my doctor didn't require a pre-op diet either. i wish he did - that would have helped "push" me/force me to eat better before WLS i know i should have had Protein Shake,

or any other better foods. But since doc didn't tell me i, choice not to!! I had a few funerals instead and gained 5 lbs!!

@PALOMA

yep, i guess i'm doing ok. 7+ sleeve PO - 105 lbs down w/fluctuations like i mentioned i never

had a liquid diet, did a food funeral instead, and gained 5 lbs!!! You could eat/drink better now

in preparation for your sleeve. You might end up losing a few lbs. too Do as i say, not as i do.!!!

good luck in April

speedy recovery☺️

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      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

        Congratulations. I remember that day for me: May 13, 2014. I thought it'd never happen (especially after a 7-day stall at 200.2!!), but it was a "Hallelujah" day! Now...stay on program so you can stay in Onederland. After five years, especially...when ghrelin returns. So stay on track.

        CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Onederland is a GREAT place to be.
