I just got off the phone with my surgeon for my pre-op appointment and he's set my pre-op diet for 1 week before surgery (nothing but Protein shakes). When I had my lap band surgery 9 years ago, the pre-op diet started 2 weeks out and most of the info out there also talks about pre-op diet starting 2 weeks out (which was liquid and veggies). Has anyone else done just the 1 week pre-op diet? Is this something more common now?

It's totally up to the surgeon but nothing stopping you from starting early if you want...

Pre-op diets are all over the board from several weeks (even months!) of nothing but liquids to nothing special at all depending upon surgeons' or program preferences. Our program only the day before.

My doctor did NOT require any preop diet -- just nothing to eat or drink past midnight the day of surgery.

I was shocked by it, but I had tacos the day before. If your doc says 1 week, then you should be fine. He knows what he's doing.. but if you feel more comfortable doing 2 weeks, then go for it.

I only had 3 days pre-AP diet. Full liquid diet. Premier shakes are you best friend. I had surgery on the 10th. I too am a lapband revision. Post op so far is similar to the band. But with a lot of nausea. Nothing I couldnt handle. Also, I found cold drinks like ice chips and cold Water made nausea worse. I drank warm water and broth the whole time in the hospital.

Good luck! You can do this!!
