Hi all! I need a general consensus on adherence to the pre-op diet. I’m on day three of just liquids, my surgery date is May 6th. The liquids bite, but it is what it is. My bff and I would really like to go out for one last sushi night on Friday and I’m wondering how much damage I’ll do if I stick to just fish and veggies? Is it worth it? Please send help!

Do you really think it’s a good idea to ask a bunch of strangers with no medical degree if it’s OK to go against your surgeon’s instructions? There’s a medical protocol for this surgery for a reason.

Just trying to gather opinions from others who have already been through this step and may have been in a similar place. I thought we were all here to support one another through this journey. Thanks for the input! 👍🏼

I don't see any problem with eating fish and veggies. My liquid allow Protein 4-6 oz protein with veggie or salad. Just make sure the fish is steam or baked and skip on the sauce or gravy. Its not like you are going to eat a big mac, or a pizza.

Good luck!

My pre-op was 2 shakes 2 Protein Bars and one small meal. I lost 16 lbs that week and we ate at Applebees. I just ate small amounts.

Good luck!

Ultimately, it is up to you on what you eat or not eat. Your success on this path you have chosen will be determined entirely by the decisions you make :) Good Luck!

I was too afraid to not follow surgeon's instructions to the letter, so I stuck with my pre-op diet.

The whole idea of a pre-op diet is to help shrink the liver plus shed a few lbs but also to set yourself up for your new life and new regime and to kick start your weight loss.

It is shown if you cheat during the honeymoon period post surgery it can have a huge effect on future weight loss because surgery resets everything inside for a new life and starting small with liquid and so on but some people seem to have issues grasping the whole seriousness of this surgery and that they have to change everything if they are to be successful not cheat here and there then wonder why Joe blow lost double you did! The people who commit to this mentally before surgery are the ones who lose 100lbs in 6 months and keep it off not the ones who decide to put 50% effort.. in the end it's your life.

PS if youre eating actual sushi rolls they are full of MSG and carbs and Salt but Goodluck!

I’m actually doing liquids of my own volition. I was given the option to do two shakes and a meal or just liquids. I felt that liquids are more regimented and I’m already down 7lbs. But thank you for the info on the sushi! It’s not my first time having it, I’m aware of the carbs and sodium in regular rolls.

Hey Surgery twin!

Im on pre op now and i just got off the phone with my nurse and she stated i can have unlimited seafood veggies and fruit but i have to make sure i hit my liquid goal. But honestly everybody bariatric office is different.

If i dont eat seafood she said i could have 4oz of lean meat everyday.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
