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
