Having surgery tomorrow and I cheated



Recommended Posts

I’m having surgery tomorrow and i was not good at the liquid diet but here is what happened. I was to have the sleeve a month ago and then i followed the diet. I lost all the weight I needed to loose and i was going to the gym. Then I rescheduled and went on vacation and couple of celebrations. I ate but not bad. I was conscious and being careful. I have followed the diet to a t for the last three days and I do feel fine. I don’t feel deprived since this is a gift to me and for me. What I’m worried about is what if they cancel my surgery. It might also just be nerves and my anxiety kicking in but I have no one to talk to because most people won’t understand. What do you think?

Good luck tomorrow even though you won't need it. You've got this.

I think that you will be fine. The purpose of the pre op diet is to shrink your liver.

As long as you didn’t go too crazy, your liver should still be smaller from the first pre op diet.

Those are my thoughts good luck and keep us posted

My surgeon didn’t even have a pre op diet. Just nothing to eat/drink after a certain time. You’ll be fine. Also, July 10th will be my one year anniversary. It’s a good day! You’ll do fine

I had a last hurrah when I probably shouldn't have but surgery went off without a problem the next day.

7:30pm the night before I had a personal sized flatbread pizza with bbq pulled pork & banana peppers plus a peach margarita. My surgery was 11am the next day.

When I was waiting to get rolled into surgery I overheard a guy getting prepped for his own surgery tell a nurse (after she asked him when he'd last eaten anything solid) "I cheated......A LOT" and the nurse said to him "oh that's okay people cheat on their pre-op diet all the time, you'll be fine".

Nancy, i'm super certain you'll be alright.

Did you eat while on the clear Fluid day pre surgery? Or was it before the clear fluid day started?

This is uncalled for. Don’t post if you don’t have anything positive to add.

I didn’t eat 3 days before. I ate some food prior to the 3 days. I was super careful and didn’t eat junk. I have some boiled eggs and some chicken. Things that healthy. The 2 weeks prior to my original surgery I was good. I think I cheated because I had already lost more than what needed to loose.

Good morning

my update...I had the surgery!!!! It has been painful but I feel good. I did have some chicken broth and 1 Jello. I have been getting up with minimal help and walking with a walker because I get dizzy. I think I go home today but I think I would benefit from staying one more night. Thank you for your support ❤️
