My surgeon only required the clear liquid diet 2 days before surgery. I’m supposed other people are doing it for so long. My surgery date is August 20th!

What does your post-op diet look like? How long will you be on clear liquids, then full liquids, etc?

My surgeon requires two weeks pre-op of the clear liquids and Protein Shakes, but only 2 days post-op will be clear liquids, then two weeks of full liquids, and then purées. I do think this is good prep for the post-op diet, plus I’ve already dropped 9 lbs, so it’s a good start :)

2 days of clear liquid pre op. Then 1day of clear liquid post op. Then full liquid diet. He said I should leave the hospital on a full liquid diet. Full liquid is usually for 2 weeks depending on how your doing.

We are officially in *my* (and others' of course) week! Very excited. Today is my last full day of work, tomorrow will be a half day. I am supposed to get a call tomorrow afternoon with the time for me to report to the hospital. I am very much over the liquid diet and I am ready to have the procedure done and really get on with it!

I bought a cookbook on Amazon for me to use for all of the various stages. I'm very excited to get my hands on it, dog ear and start planning for the rest of my life :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
