Getting Sleeve Done in Two Weeks



Recommended Posts

The pre-op diet is rough, no denying it. You really need to power through and focus on the long-term goals. Even if you struggle with the liquids, try to pack them down. It helps to calm your hunger. Also, try chewing on sf popsicles or frozen Protein Drinks. They (at least) make you feel like you're eating. Good luck!

You can do it! It's just two weeks and it shrinks your liver and it's so worth it.

Try different flavors. I found it helpful to alternate flavors. chocolate, vanilla, caramel, clear fruit protien drinks, a lemonade drink, beef broth, chicken broth. Sweet, sour and savory.

Hang in there. Try to remind yourself of the reasons you are here.

I wish you the best.

Yesterday marks two weeks pre-op. I am getting nervous and struggling on the all liquid. I feel so hungry any advise?

We are almost sleeve twins, my surgery is July 30. I'm so excited! I start my diet this weekend. My doctor said Protein Drinks except for one tiny meal and he gave a list of what I can eat. I will probably stick with cottage cheese. Good luck!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
