Hello!

My gastric sleeve is tomorrow, and I’m unsure if a food I like is able to be eaten today. They said I should be on a liquid diet, but I’m wondering if yogurt/pudding counts as a liquid? I ask because after my mom’s surgery, they had her on a liquid diet and gave her jell-o.
Help! I just want a yogurt!

There are many variations

But

Not likely especially if they didnt specifically say you could have yogurt/pudding during your preop liquid diet. What does your info package tell you?

It said “bariatric liquid diet 2 days before surgery, with clear liquid the day of, stopping 2 hours before surgery”

Usually it's just liquids but since your instructions are vague, go with your best judgement

Good Luck Tomorrow 💜

If surgery is tomorrow it is usually clear liquids.. No pudding. Nothing after midnight for the anthestia. If u have an online portal for your hospital check and see if they emailed you instructions. They told me only a small sip of Water in am to take my syntheroid. If you need to take meds and are unsure take them with you and don't take before. Definately no blood pressure meds.

I was allowed to have clear liquids only. sugar free Jello counted, but not pudding.

I think the Jello would be okay, or even sugar-free popsicles, but not the pudding.

Clear liquids are very very specific.

Clear liquids are:

black coffee

black tea (or black green tea ;) )

clear liquids (non-red or non-orange or non-purple): sugar free drink mixes without color, sf drinks that are see-through in nature and not colored

sugar free pop-sicles (tropical fruit flavored, no red, no orange, no purple)

Water

sugar free Jello (no red, orange is probably ok)

broth of all nature as long as it's clear (beef, chicken, pork, seafood, veggies--no Tomato, no cream soups)

And that's about it.

Good luck with surgery tomorrow!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
