Ugh, I hated the pre-op all liquid diet and so happy that part is over. I switch to full liquids tmrw. I’ve been living on Protein Shakes and sf popsicles and sf Jello for a week now. 7 days post-op today ❤️

How long were you all supposed to do the liquid diet? A friend of mine only had do to three days but I'm having to do two weeks. Did you doctor give you a goal to lose by day of surgery not counting what had to be lost for insurance approval? My bmi is 51 and my doctor told me he wants it down to 49 by the 17th for surgery. It's kind of stressing me out because I'm a week into the liquid diet and have only lost 6lbs since my last appointment on the 28th. I'm afraid if I don't reach the goal he set he will think I cheated on this liquid diet.

Hi!! I’m scheduled for March 23rd. Day 2 of my pre-op diet. Today was a struggle. But, I figure it’s worth it!

Hey guys! Wow it's been a little over a week since my surgery and what a roller coaster it has been! I'm recovering ok and am finally able to get in about 5 oz an hour. I know it should be more but this is huge for me. For the first few days drinking anything was difficult and forget about taking meds. I can say I didnt expect the contraction like spasms when I wake up and at odd times during the day. None of the videos or blog post talked about this and i thought something was really wrong. So I wanted to put it out there for all peeps on here so you wont be alarmed or surprised. I'm currently at my post OP appt and plan on asking the surgeon about it when they call me back.
On the bright side my incisions barely hurt at all and moving around and getting out of bed has gotten soooo much better. What a difference a week will make! I'm down 8lbs since surgery and 23 lbs since starting the liquid diet.

Hey Slimmy-mommeee!!! Glad to hear you're on the upswing! Personally for me, my incisions are getting itchy! Still the right side is most sensitive but definitely improving. 😊

@Slimmy-mommeee I had terrible contractions and spasms at the top of my new stomach the first few days after surgery. I would sip, drink and I would feel it hit the top of my sleeve—it would bubble and then it ached and pulsed; it contracted I guess that is what it was for a few seconds. It was crazy! I only get that feeling now like 3’times a day instead of after every sip! Thank Goodness 😅 so happy to hear you’re recovery is getting better! I’m also at my follow up appt right now!
