12 days out from Surgery and I’m tired of the liquid diet



Recommended Posts

I’m 12 days out but getting really tired of the liquid diet. My head hunger seems like it’s getting stronger and stronger. 4 more days and I can move on to the purée stage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I started the pre op diet 4 days ago also and I feel for you also. I made a vegetable Soup with all the free vegetables that I am allowed and seasoned it with all the seasoning that I can use. This is a FREE food and I can eat this whenever I want and how much I want. There is no recipe...just make some broth (or buy some) and just keep adding vegetables and spices until it tastes good to you.....

I was given go ahead to start puree part at week one surgeon visit. I am having mini egg salads etc it is way better. I was regurgitating that shake stuff all night. It will be hard to get all the sixty in without a shake though still trying to figure that one out since i regurg the shakes

I know that I will be moving slowly on my increase for the food intake since my surgery is more complicated, but I sure hope the broth works for me. I also find that the shakes, if I make them myself with almond milk, go down better, and stay down better, so I will be doing that for now. Surgery is on 9/16, xFatBoy how are you doing...any better?

I called my doctor's office after10 days and they approved me to move to the puree stage.

Yes I am much better! I’m about 90% back to normal with minimal soreness on my right side of stomach. I’m able to get in my Protein for the day (70 g) and Water goes down easy. I’ve been sticking to chicken broth and Protein Shakes. I have 4 more days before I can move on to purée stage and I can’t wait! Thanks for checking in😊
