I’m suddenly panicking. Surgery is the 15th. I’ve been on a liquid diet since Tuesday. The nutritionist told me that I could have a banana during the day if I needed sowmthing. Now reading other things, I’m afraid doing that has messed up my liver shrinking?? I’ve had one to two bananas a day since Tuesday. Please tell me I haven’t messed up?

You will be fine the pre diet is all about your surgeon preference. Most drs allow you some real food at least once a day. A banana should be fine or they wouldn’t tell you you could have it. This was my pre diet. You will be fine

I did the preop diet. Four days prior to surgery i had little ceasars pizza and breadsticks. The remaining 3 days i went liquid shakes only and the doc said my liver looked fine.

I had the same worry. My pre op diet was extremely strict 2weeks. Two times before surgery I had about a half cup of rice with a spicy oily Tomato sauce. I was so scared. Hospital said was fine. My Surgeon told me before I went under that there is no silly question or anything that will make them mad & not to be afraid to ask them ANYTHING! I’m glad because I asked more than I may have after surgery had he not said that! Greatest luck to you!

I know what you mean. By the time I went in for surgery I felt like I could have eaten a burger the size of a car. Lol then I had surgery n really didn’t want to eat but by the Time I went through the three weeks of liquid n then full liquids I was going crazy to chew something. I felt insane at times then you eat like three bites and your full. Now I am almost 2 1/2 months post op n I get hungry now. I really wish I was like most people that are not hungry at all but I still cannot eat more than 4oz max. But just get through it its horrible and it’s all a mind over matter game. Stay strong and remember the long term goal. You got this congratulations you are in the home stretch for the new you!
