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!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
