Pre-op liquid diet is Bullsh*t!!!



Recommended Posts

It's not that I'm hungry, I'm not much, but OMG I JUST WANT TO CHEW SOMETHING!!!Particularly something CRUNCHY! 8 more days of this, then weeks thereafter. *cries* I hope my surgery doesn't get rescheduled because they said I have to stay on liquid diet until surgery if it does. 😩

I know this feel. I want to crunch, too. Day 5 for me over here. Surgery 12/30! Can you do sugar free popsicles? The cold of them right now isn’t satisfying, but the crunch is, and then shortly after I have some warm broth to warm my lip back up. Lol

Yep. It was bad. Then my plan had me for two more weeks after surgery. My teeth were hurting after a month of liquids. Couldnt wait to chew food again. Hang in there. Before you know it, it will be over. If I did it, you can do it.

I start the liquid diet on the 28th. I’m petrified. I have been eating for 10 people this entire month. I’m pretty sure I have gained weight, but I am not going to look until the 28th. I have actually seen where people are trying to start the liquid diet early?? HECK NO! I will eat everything in site until the 27th. I only have one week pre op. I do not think my hubs could deal with a hungry fat girl with no caffeine!! Good luck to you. I keep hearing it gets better. I’m just going to hope for the best.

I'm there with you, I'm scheduled for surgery the 28th I completed week 1 of Clear Liquids going on my second. For crunch I get my satisfaction from Ice it's really helped me get by

That’s a great idea! I never thought of that. Thanks for the tip!

I wish I had read this before re: the ice trick- I totally cracked and ate food. 😓 Ah well, back on the wagon. One of my nutritionists told me (off the record) that if I ate a little bit on xmas it'd be fine, so I think so long as I'm good from now on it'll be ok. Oof.

I chewed gum! and I had never chewed gum. Doc said chew on some peanuts then spit them out so i chose to use sunflower seeds. The shells kept me busy and I just spit them into a jar. They said you can not eat nobody said you can not chew.

I know exactly what you mean about just wanting to crunch something. I did end up doing gum and a few ice pops. I am now post-op and still on liquid diet. Luckily not Clear Liquids so I can have cream Soup and stuff like that. My wife made me an enchilada soup tonight and blended and strained it, but holy crap it would have been amazing with the tortilla chips my kids were making nachos out of!!!

After Thanksgiving I made some super high Protein turkey broth by cooking it over and over for three days and hammering the bones. Result was a super-thick gelatenous broth which I froze into quart-size freezer bags. I am planning to use those whenever doc says it’s safe after surgery.
