Preop liquid diet. Cheated [emoji21] no judgment plz!



Recommended Posts

I certainly won't judge you!!! I'm not to that stage yet, but I can only imagine drinking liquids only for days when our stomachs are still regular sized! As long as you keep to liquids only now, I think you'll be a-ok as long as you don't have a fatty liver. Otherwise, I'm not so sure. Good luck! 😊

If you search the forums you will see that it’s a common thing. I know I did, so definitely no judgement here. Try to stick with it from here on out though because it’ll give your surgeon and you the best possible outcome on surgery day.

Don't beat yourself up...I felt the same way. The reason why you do that before surgery is to shrink your liver. They kind of have to move it out of the way before they do the surgery. I had to do the diet for 2 weeks and that was painful lol

But I worried about the same thing and was fine.

You will be perfect. Best of luck to you...so worth it

Thanks everyone!!![emoji173] I think I was stressed because I didnt have the money to buy the Protein Shakes I needed, because it was my daughters birthday, so I spent my money on her instead if the shakes. But I was trying to just drink Water and stuff and when I did eat it was very small amounts, so now I got paid again and got the shakes! So no more cheating!! thanks for all your support and input everyone!! I appreciate it!!

I'm still in hosp post OP. I was on 10 day liquid diet, my surgeon told me I could cheat with little bit lean Protein, chicken, beef cheese, etc. But only if I felt I had to. That along with my shakes helped so much. I had lean beef day before surgery & nothing was said to me. But always follow your surgeons orders. You got this! Def no judgements here! Keep us posted

Also be kind to yourself, that is so important! And don't push yourself physically during the liq diet, I did & I regretted it, I felt real weak on day 5 & 6. Take care of you!

I cheated a few times. You're only human. My husband felt sorry for me and I nibbled on a few things they were eating during lunch. I had to drink a Protein Shake for b and l and dinner a small meal. Well, in the beginning it was hard. Plus, I think I ate sunflower seeds. I doubt my doctor is going to say anything about my liver not shrinking. Surgery was still a success and I am down almost 15lbs in 8 day.

My surgeon didn't even require a pre-op liquid diet! It might be because I was at a lower BMI though?!? I am not sure... Regardless - don't think twice about it.. just try to continue on the liquid diet. Good luck!
