What was your pre op diet?



Recommended Posts

I have read so many different things about pre op diets. Mine was 7 days liquid with the last day being clear liquid. I am ok with it but seems a bit more than others have done and again less than some others. As long as you clean your belly out for the surgery . I get it and will follow my surgeons guidelines but I was just wondering why the big variances from doc to doc.

Mine was two weeks of clear liquid and Protein Shakes only. It sucked, but I got through it. The hardest part was I don't like sweet stuff too much, and I don't like broth either lol. I survived.
It was actually harder for me after surgery because I had to do 3 weeks of clear/shakes, then one week of full liquids. My taste changed and the Protein shakes tasted disgusting and it was hard to get them down, but somehow I got through it all!

Mine was 10 days of Protein Shakes only, with the last day being Clear Liquids. It was probably the hardest part of the whole process for me.

Mine was a week of lean and green, then a week of 5 shakes a day.

surgeons seem to have different opinions on a lot of things, as you'll find out if you hang out here for awhile. And yes - pre-op diet is one of them!

I only had to do Clear Liquids the day before surgery.

I'm on the last few days of my program's pre-op diet: Protein Shake for Breakfast and lunch, veg or fruit for Snacks, and a dinner of lean meat and veg. The day before surgery I am only allowed full or Clear Liquids. Post-surgery I will be on the full liquid diet for 4 weeks.

Our program in Seattle (Swedish) just requires low carb two week liver-shrinking diet, then clears day before. The nutritionist says you lose the same amount of fat and your gonna be stuck with liquids for weeks already and gate it, so why double it.

I ate under 20 grams carbs per day. They said my liver was tiny, they only had to do 4 of the 5 incisions.
