So my surgery is on Thursday, and Im on day 2 of my pre op clear liquid diet. I have made and eaten so much Jello and chicken broth, but im still so hungry. Plus the rest of my family has to eat and stuff that normally wiuld just be ok smells and looks like a meal at a 5 star restaurant. Any suggestions on what other Clear Liquids I could have? Or just words of encouragement, cuz im seriously ready to just say screw it, if i feel like crap on day 2 then 2 1/2 more weeks is gonna be hell

Usually, the first 2-3 days are the most challenging. Hang in there, and your body *should* get used to it and it won't be as annoying. Try to stick it out to the end of day 3 at least...otherwise you may have to "restart the clock".

Of course, this only deals with the physical responses, any mental ones will have to be dealt with accordingly.

Suggestions: drink some Water, go for a walk, take a shower, do some chores, do a jigsaw puzzle, meditate.

Good luck!

I have my surgey the morning of day 4 so hopefully im good. I figure after surgery there will be alot less stomach *to feed/fill* so hopefully then it won't be so hard

It will be MUCH easier after, at least it was for me. I wasn't hungry, just trying to get my Water and Protein Shakes in 2 oz. at a time.

My preop liquid diet was for 2 weeks, and it was definitely rough, but after the first days it got easier. I just kept reminding myself why I was doing and and how important it was for shrinking my liver, which was already enlarged from NASH and hepatic fibrosis. It was tough, but I got through it.. You will too!
I agree it's really hard when you have family eating normally. My husband made his and my son's meals during that time, but smelling them was hard. Even pizza, which I don't like (crazy I know lol), smelled amazing! Sometimes I would just go paint my nails or take a hot bath when they were eating so I wouldn't have to be around it.
Good luck to you!
