If you DIDN'T do Liquid Pre-Op what DID you do?



Recommended Posts

They usually ask to do liquid because you're meant to be on liquid immediately after surgery anyway...

Personally I decided to stay my pre-op rather early I was lucky to find a Protein Shake I actually enjoyed and it kept me going for months..

After I had my bypass I literally has no desire to eat real food for months and I'm glad because I'm now below my goal weight and feeling amazing...

Most surgeons will say it is best to change your eating habits prior to surgery otherwise the surgery won't work...

I did not have a pre-op diet because my surgeon told me that my BMI put me at a lower risk for an enlarged liver. He confirmed this with my pre-op tests. Thus, I didn't need a liquid diet to reduce my liver size. I was and continue to be on the same diet since I began my journey which is no bread, rice, potatoes, Pasta, sweets. I did have to stop eating and drinking at certain times before surgery.
