It seems kinda surreal (the pre-op diet)! Good luck! I didn't think about Forums/groups before surgery (think I would have been more prepared! If you haven't gotten Dr. V's book, do so! I am almost finished reading it and it is great!

Yes! I purchased Dr. V's book and asked my asked my surgeon tons of questions from his book! I need to get his recipe book! I watch his videos every Tuesday's - AWESOME! Trying to get my cousin to go with my to one of his seminars. Waiting to see if Atlanta will be on his schedule soon : ) Will be checking up on you lady - KEEP WINNING/LOSING!

So I ended up going to the ER on Wednesday due to dehydration. The ER doctor did a blood panel on me and found out that my Liver Count was 232 and said that it's supposed to be less than 50.

He was concerned and called the surgeon. No one gave me any suggestions on how to fix it, but told me to come back today and get another blood test ran.

On Wednesday and Thursday, I made sure I drank no less than 32 ounces of G Zero and I doubled my Protein Shake to 16 ounces and did that twice that day. This would give me 64 ounces.

I noticed on Thursday that my urine was getting lighter, it was dark but it was lighter than before. On Friday I noticed that it was even lighter.

I was tested Today and my count was half what it was on Wednesday.

The Surgeon said I'll be fine.

I physically had his nurse on the phone and I was very complete in explaining my whole experience to her. She was shocked. She stated that she thought something was up with the recent patients and blamed it on lack of training to the nursing staff.

I'm going to be watching Dr. V's videos tonight etc

I really thank you guys for all the helpful tips and replies. I studied a lot to make sure this will be successful, I love these forums they are very helpful!

You will be Ok. We sorta expect our bodies to act up a little because we have taken more than half of it's stomach away. I'm so proud of how you made your own adjustments with the liquids!! Yes, go watch Dr. V's videos - he has so much knowledge regarding what you are going through. Keep us posted please.

I am angry to hear this! This partly happened to me (but I caught it and my NUT did too -- they gave me the wrong food/bev tray twice. I refused and actually got my surgeon in trouble.). Check out YouTube for "Dr v weight loss." He has an awesome set of videos (A LOT of them). Not sure if it will help you to figure out the "hydration" issue, but search :). He is hilarious, but on point for so much. Good luck! I just took my time and drank from little small cups until I got more down!


Thank you for the Dr V suggestion. He makes so much sense & it’s very helpful

Stay hydrated. I would also suggest Protein 2o Water. I love the grape one. It might go down easier than plain water since you can’t handle it. I had a different experience, so after my original sleeve I couldn’t swallow an ounce of anything because my sleeve had swollen shut. But you sound so much better. Also try the chicken broth Protein Powder, if it’s warm it might go down better. Good luck.
