Pre OP clear liquid diet challenges.



Recommended Posts

I am on Day 4 of clear liquid diet because surgery is on Oct 3. I really wanted to know what others when you need to grocery shop and cook for your families. I have been working but now have 2 days off to get chores done and am worry about keeping to the diet.

That's a tough one, as medically the most that one needs to do such things is a day or so to clean things out (beyond that it's one of those "what are they thinking..." things.

When I have had to do them for things like colonoscopies, I have used some of the clear Protein Drinks (Isopure, Premier) to provide some Protein satiety, and I generally make Jello with them (if that is allowed) so that there is something solid-ish to have. One can also alternate with some unflavored or chicken flavored Protein Powder in broth to counter the over-sweetness of other protein drinks and Jellos.

Good luck! (what are they having you do post-op if they put you through this pre-op?)

No shakes allowed , just doing Protein Water, broth and water. I am not a Jello person. Thanks for the replies.

No, but I wouldn't eat anything like that again. Please stick to the diet as you're trying to shrink your liver. Good luck.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
