Just wondering why you are starting the liquid diet if you don't have a surgery date yet. Until you get a date, you can still prepare by eliminating foods you cannot/should not have after surgery, such as sugar, refined carbs, soda, caffeine, and alcohol. Cleaning up the general diet even before the official pre-op diet is very helpful so you don't go through withdrawal while dealing with the hard parts of liquid diet and recovery.

I’m on day 6 of my preop liquid diet. Things I have learned.

liquid in means liquid out. Be aware.
chicken broth makes this even worse!
Don’t trust farts
You’ll be tempted to cheat. Don’t do it. Find something else to distract you.
Plan on hiding from people. It’s too hard to be around food.
Stock up before your diet starts. It’s too are to be in the grocery store.
Good luck!!!! You can do this!

Azhiker reason being is that my doc wants 4 weeks on the pre op diet and as I stated I’m just easing into it. I’m just waiting til my appointment on the tenth to set a date...I’ve already cut out the other foods, soda, alcohol and caffeine and just want to be successful. Thank you.☺️

Are you expecting a surgery date soon? My preop diet was only 10 days and I definitely wasn't starting any earlier lol but that's just me. I get it though, it could be good to get a jump start so that if you "cheat" now it won't effect the actual preop time.

Stock up on as much as you can now. Nothing worse than running out of the few things that you can have lol

      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.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
