This Pre-op diet is a b$@!:



Recommended Posts

I started my preop diet yesterday and it’s hard for sure. I have a Protein Shake for Breakfast and lunch and 3-4oz. meat and a non starchy veggie. My Snacks are 2oz meat or cheese or boiled eggs and one no starchy veggie plus a healthy fat. 64 oz Water and 4 dill pickles or 2 cups broth per day. The bad news is it’s for three weeks! Surgery date is March 23 for SADI.

I think it’s so interesting how much variety there is in the pre-op diet from doctor to doctor. I absolutely had no solid foods during my pre-op only 3 Protein Drinks ( 20g of Protein no more than 5g sugar) plus 64 oz of Water and sugar free popsicle or Jello and chicken broth. No solid food whatsoever. And that’s what I had 2 weeks before and two weeks after. So interesting....

Same. But mine was solely Protein drinks, no Jello nor popsicles for me.

It's so different surgeon to surgeon I didn't even have a pre-op diet, just had to fast from midnight the day before.

I never did the popsicles and I got sick of Jello ( cuz I could only eat half of the serving which what was allowed) But, what I couldn’t keep down by phase 3 was Protein Shakes. What really helped was Water infusers and I Am in phase 5 part two so 3oz. Protein 3x a day. I’m still having to supplement. I used protein2.0 water and Isopure Water Infuser powder instead of protein shakes.< /strong> That made it tolerable and palatable for me. Now at week 10 post op and I’m still supplementing at least 20oz. But I can live with it.

Just focus on the goal. It’s hard I know. I kept thinking I wanted my liver to be shrunk really small so it would make the surgery as smooth as possible. I just wanted to minimize any risk I could. But it’s worth it. My health is so improved, I’ve lost almost 60lbs and I’m at week 10 post op. I walk and swim and workout and I can even cross my legs now. Hang in there.
