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 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!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
