Hello All! I'm Peach! 👋🏾

My surgery date is 6 count em.. SIX DAYS away. I was put on a 3 week ALL LIQUID pre OP diet. In the first week I cheated but I have been trying my best. So far I have lost around 10lbs.

I see alot of people say that if you are not successful in the diet and your liver doesnt shrink enough, the doctor could sew you back up and not operate.

My question is: has anyone ever been sewed back up and not operated on due to their liver not shrinking?

Tips, stories, &advice are all welcome.

I'm sure it does happen, there was a guy mentioning that when I first joined Bariatric Pal. Then last year there was a girl that they did go ahead and the surgeon leveraged her liver, suspect,it happened when trying to move,he4 liver out of the way. Oh she recovered pretyu,goood but it was a miserable recovery. that she had. So Yeah very very rare , but it could happen. The fact that you did your . sinning" early in this process and went on to lose 10 pounds should work. out to your benefit. Looking forward to an update posting when your surgery is completed!

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.

I think if someone's surgery was denied they wouldn't be hanging around on a WLS support website. You're not going to get many responses.

Why not?
I'm sure the doctor would delay the surgery until the patient was compliant

I remember reading someones story that she went under thinking all was fine and woke up to be told they were unable to do the surgery because they didn't feel safe with the size of her liver. She was told to lose more weight I think. But like frust8 said, because you did it so early you've had plenty of time to recover. You should be fine :)

Thanks! Yes they are submitting and in the mean time I am not on my liquid diet. I'm sure I will have to go on the 2-3 week diet again once finalized

Not that it's a necessarily a thing but just think, you'll be an old pro at the liquid diet part for post op.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
