What was your diet pre op like?



Recommended Posts

Mine is a clear liquid diet for three days + milk. I'm in my second day and honestly I'm so hungry. I was losing weight prior to surgery but with the amount of milk I'm drinking I've been stuck on the same weight these 3 days. I prefer to eat a tuna salad that actually fills me up at lunch, than a carton of milk that does nothing for my appetite. But I know I have to stick with doctors' orders. But it sucks.

Pure liquids yes it sucks a few tips

Bone Broth fills you up drink it often and find something to pass the time to get your mind off food

TV, Movie, Work, Sex, Dog, go outside, Totally do stuff you never do and then when it gets really bad sleep just got to sleep

Also going to get yelled at by this one but Vodka and WIne are liquids - Really helped me

I did 2 weeks of 3 shakes a day (Optifast powder + water).

The second and third day was rough, but was smooth sailing after that....hang in there!

No Pre-Op diet here. My group recently changed protocol due to no evidence of any long term success/failure based on pre-op diet. Your sensation of hunger, and fill will be completely different post-op, therein making pre-op plan, little more than a nuisance.

Interesting, because the pre-op diet is all about shrinking and softening the liver, not about future success rates etc

The pre-op diet is low calorie which helps the liver shrink very quickly so when the surgeons try to get to the stomach which sits behind the liver they can move it out of the way and this practice is used world wide as people do get on the table and then have their op cancelled because their liver is too big or too stiff to move out of the way making surgery very high risk.

remember it isn't for weight loss it is ALL about your liver being pliable and smaller :)

Mine seems so much more complicated. I do 2 Protein Shakes per day; One with more Protein. 2 Snacks, which can be another Protein Shake, but can be 2 eggs, or 1/4 cup hummus and 1/2 cup non-starch veg; 3/4 c. cottage cheese, etc. They are slightly different from each other. Finally 1 meal consisting of 4 oz protein and up to 2 c. non starch veg (raw) or 1 cup cooked with 1 tbl salad dress or mayo or tbl avocado.

Black coffee or tea (can have caffeine until after surgery) plus at least 48 oz of Water or sugar free liquid.

I'm on day 1 of 14; pretty hungry to tell the truth; I have the "meal" and 1 Protein Drink left.

So far I have taken in 390 calories today; protein shake 120; Protein Bar (snack 1) 200 cal; 2 hard boiled eggs, 70 calories. No wonder I am hungry!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
