Pre-op liquid diet woes



Recommended Posts

Today is day 2 of my 2 week pre-op liquid diet. I'm to have four shakes per day. To be honest, I'm friggin hungry. And I'm consumed with thoughts of food. My surgery is on 10/26. I figured this would be the hardest part, but man it sucks. Anyone else out there?

Hi there! I am currently in the preop diet phase and my surgery is scheduled for the 19th of this month. I am new here. Maybe we can chat with eachother since we are close to the same stages?

I used to make a big bowl of sugar free Jello and eat the whole thing. Using a spoon makes you think you're eating and takes your mind off of the fact your not.

A quote I heard often comforts me at times like this: "Life sucks, then you die."

Wait, that may not be it. Oh, yeah: "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

Well, it's better, but still. Oh: "It's always darkest before the dawn."

Yeah, that one works. You have some dark times coming for the next few weeks, then it starts getting better and better, with new surprises around every corner.

Welcome to cliche hell. ;)

Good Luck

That's a good idea. I just added sugar free jello to the grocery list for tonight. Fingers crossed.

They call it hell week for a reason. It’s always a challenge to break a habit & at the moment you’re trying to break so many - sugar, carbs, caffeine, fats, sodas, alcohol, etc, etc. & likely suffering withdrawals as well.

But you can do this.

It will be soooo worth it.

Great! Sounds like a plan. I have no idea how to use this dang app so you'll have to bear with me while I figure it out. :-)

To add to Tek’s cliches:

“When you are going through hell, keep going.”

”The first few days are the worst, and then it gets better.”

“This too, will pass.”
😂😂

I will be sending good vibes and hopes for a speedy two weeks!

I'm on day 4 of two weeks. Do you get to eat? I know different docs have different plans. For me it's just the stupid HPMR shakes. I've been drinking a ton of beef broth though to try to feel less starved. Seems like the hot liquid helps a little. I hate the shakes. I've been mixing them with frozen fruit but it doesn't help the taste. I'm gonna try some fresh fruit in them.

I'm 4 days post op but on my 2 week pre op diet I was allowed 2 cups of veggies a day along with my shakes. I'd have a cup of raw broccoli and cauliflower with a lite fat free dressing and in the evening I'd do a small salad with lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions or I'd saute fresh green Beans with onions. I also got to choose my shakes, I did failure. Hope it gets easier for you. I could also have sugar free Jello if I felt hungry.
