Hi everyone I’m new to this app but I have going through all the requirements to get my date I’m on my nutritionist class this month. But I do have a question when do I start my liquid diet?

Hi Jenn!

I am a newbie here too, so there are many, many, people here much better suited to answer your question. That said, I believe once you get your actual date your Doctor will get you instructions for any liquid diet you need. (Not all of them require them and they vary quite a lot.) You can always call them to be sure.

Anyway, from one Newb to another, welcome! Keep chipping away at it!

I just want to say Welcome and congratulations. Well for me I don't have to start a pre-opt diet and my surgery is the 19 of March I just can't gain no more weight. I'm very excited right now!

Thank you Odia! Congratulations on your journey, I went through the process twice and gave up this time I’m going through with it so I’m excited to get a date 😊But good luck with you surgery and your journey.

Welcome to all of you!! Very exciting times 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Yea, pre op AND post op diets vary greatly. As you progress and read more posts it may / will make you question the plan your surgeon has laid out for you. Especially when you’re still on liquids and someone who had surgery the same time as you is already eating, like EATING EATING! Lol!
Congratulations to all and good luck on your prospective journeys 👍🏻

If you're talking about the pre-op diet, it's the two weeks before your surgery date. I didn't have to do a liquid diet pre-op, just restricted to 1500 calories per day. Then of course post-op you do two weeks liquid diet right after surgery as well.

It depends on your doctor but a 2 week pre-op diet seems to be pretty common.

I'm having my surgery at The University of Vermont Medical Center, and their program requires a full liquid diet for 2 weeks prior to surgery. I started it on March 12 and my surgery is on March 26th. I hope that helps.

      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
