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.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
