Yes, but only for 5 days, They had to rush my surgery because of the Covid, Dr said he wasn’t sure he would be able to do it, if he didn’t do it now. So just liquids until Thursday. Normally it would be a 10 to 12 day pre op with my Dr. he said he wants that liver to shrink pretty good before the surgery. I don’t think with 5 days it’s going to shrink much lol

actually, there are some surgeons who don't require a liquid diet at all - just Clear Liquids for a day or two before surgery - so you may be fine...

In any case, the sleeve is so far my fav procedure I've had. Please don't worry about it. You will be fine. I know you will.

Just had the DS with SIPS done on the 3rd. I will admit straight away I did not do as much research as I could have but after following my "local program" for 6 months and the 2 meetings with the surgeon, this seemed like the best option for me. 50yr old male, lost lots of weight in the past before via various fads/programs. Quit drinking and smoking 4 years ago and naturally chose [insert fav crap food here] as a sub. Also.. after turning 50, my metabolism seemed to really slow down. My starting and top weight was 345. After doing the 2 week liquid diet and now about 10 days post surgery i'm at 306. I walk between 3 and 5 miles throughout the day. I think my biggest challenge is and will continue to be the drinking 30 mins before and after any food intake. The fact that I still haven't had anything "solid" still throws me off. I think the real clue-by-four really hit me in the head last night that this decision I made is definitely the big hammer and I've also realized I will never eat the same again. This is messing with my head a bit but it's far better than to have the chronic obesity related conditions in the long run.

Apologies for the rant... I'm a noob here.

Let's me see if I got this right. You had a sleeve then a SADI and now a DS. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer but no matter what type of surgery you have it is going to fail. You are not mentally prepared to do what one has to do to be a successful WLS patient. The surgery is the easy part. The hard part is changing one's bad habits FOREVER!!! Unless you change your thinking and habits, you will eat around the DS and won't be successful. I think your best bet would to try therapy. It may help to get you in the right mindset to be successful.
