Sept surgery people



Recommended Posts

Surgery is 9/17. Pre-op started this past monday 9/2. 2-3 Protein supplements, regular Snacks (pickles, deli meat, cheese, veg w/dip, etc...) and a meat and veg meal. Also allowed 1 cup of fruit.< br />
First night I had a couple spoonfuls of baked Beans, and have been consuming probably closer to 1.5 c fruit. I'm tampering down the fruit to 1c tho, and haven't cheated with anything else that I am aware of.

No calorie limits. I weighed in at 313 Sunday morning. Today I weighed 305.

Mine is Sept. 16th. My LSD is for 3 days and is 5 to 6 shakes a day, depending on which

shake variety I chose, I can also have other Clear Liquids and up to to large dill pickles a day.

HI KohakuSeuda,

There’s actually a warning statement on the bottom of my pre-op diet sheet that says dizziness is common during the diet . Because the shakes are so low in sugar, it’s just enough to keep us above hypoglycemia. I’m on Day 2 of full liquids. Last week I had a meal and 2 shakes. Now, 5 shakes plus Water like you.

I will say from my memory when I had my lap band, day 3 is the worst. For many it gets a little better.

Since sugar free Jello is considered a clear 0 cal liquid, I’ve added those as well, just to feel the little bit of weight in my tummy. It seems to help with the hunger.

Best of luck!
