My doctor just said to try and lose weight to try and shrink my liver before surgery. Watch what I eat. To stay away from carbs and sugar. He didnt even say that I had to due a liquid diet before surgery.

Mine didnt say anything about a liquid diet either... to be honest this is the only place ive seen anything about liquid diets my brother and a couple of friends have had the surgery and none were placed on liquid diets... i just hope there was more clarity...everything is so unclear

liquid diets may depend on each individual case (how overweight they are etc.) in addition to the program/surgeons preferences.

The not going in order thing does make sense. My weight is also a huge roller coaster, but since I cut out sugar and carbs I am consistently losing. I haven’t weighed myself in a few weeks .....my last was 294. I may be in the 280’s now which hasn’t happened in two decades.
I would be furious going through all that and losing the weight only to gain it back during the pause. Ugh. Worst nightmare

Yay! Congrats!!!!!! It makes me more excited too. You and I were on a similar schedule for finishing classes and labs so hopefully I’ll be getting a call soon as well 🥰

I had my appointment with Dr Kim at Kaiser South Bay so I’m pretty sure that’s who my surgeon will be 🤷🏼‍♀️

When they scheduled with you do you have to go in a week pre op to meet the surgeon and do more blood work etc? Or will you do that appointment by phone?

I have 2 appointments this week by phone...one with the surgeon again on Wednesday and one with the nurse friday... when he called me this past Friday it was short i think he was just working on scheduling.... just asked me if i was ready to go we talked about work time off ...i also never did the psychological assessment

They aren’t saying that you have to do it now are they?

I wish they could just call and say “we have an opening in three days” 😂. I would do it in a heart beat. My weight has been hovering at 290 for a week. I was hoping it would drop a bit more before they call. I ended up taking my kid to the beach (anyone who has kids knows this is totally considered exercise).
mil until now I’ve not really exercised much, I’ve gotten my eating under control (this is where all the weight loss thus far comes from) and I am now at a point where my knees and ankles aren’t in as much pain. Since I can do more... I’m now trying to improve by fitting in exercise where I can.

I hope they dont make you do the psych visit now.
Did they say you have anything else to do like blood work? I hope not and you are all set to go.
