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!!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through
