Me. I did the 2 week liquid pre-op diet and my liver didn’t shrink enough. Put me back together, had to loose 30 lbs and did it again.

Oh wow!! I never thought about the recovering aspect of it! Thanks so much for the info!!! I figured it was rare because I haven't seen any posts about it and I have scammed thru alot of posts on here.

Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

My doctor just has us do a clean eating diet for pre op … I was shocked!

I'm terrified that this is going to hapen to me. Both my liver and spleen are enlarged to the point that I've been seing a hemotologist/oncologist for the past year and was worked up with them thinking I had lymphoma. Thank G-d that they believe that it's obesity related and not cancer.

I cut out soda on Jan 1 of this year and have been trying to eat better but have not lost a pound. We have a -45F windchill and 6 inches of snow right now so walking is a non-starter.

What do ya'll do when you're trying but that number on the scale is not moving at all?

I used contraive to loose the weight after my first attempt. My dr asked my hubby if I had a drinking problem due to my liver.

Low carb would probably bea really good option for you, as it will give you satiety from Protein and there's the added benefit of Water weight loss getting it all started if you keep your carbs sufficiently low :) If you can manage the first 2-3 days, I used to find low-carb eating the most 'doable' diet. I did it for my pre-op phase, too (only had to lose a bit, fortunately).

Welcome!

Portion Control is key. Start logging everything you put in your mouth in an app like Baritastic or MyFitnessPal.
Aim to stay below 1,000-1,200 calories a day, making sure you get at least 80-100g of Protein a day, and 80-90oz of Water (or non-calorie drinks) a day. You'll see the scale move, guaranteed.

If you still have a few good months until surgery (6-7 months) and you want to ease into the weight loss, start by measuring a "normal" meals day now, and then reduce 100-150 cal/day, each week, aiming to get below 1,000 cal/day at least 4 weeks before the actual surgery date.

Good luck, and come back here for support and advice. You can do it!!!
