I'm April 13th too! I don't know if I'm relieved or concerned that I don't have to do a pre-op diet. My surgeon doesn't require one! Hmmm....

The purpose of the liquid diet is to shrink the liver so they can get in there to do what they have to do. If I were in your place, I think I would do it for the week before, just to make sure. My surgeon only requires 1 week of Protein Drinks but at least it's only week. GL

I am the 27th also! What is your pre-op diet like? I am only required Protein Shakes for one week with the exception of Clear Liquids the night before.

Same! Protein Shake for Breakfast and lunch. For dinner 3-4 ounces of a lean Protein and veggies. Day before Clear Liquids only. I’ve been doing this for a week so far and lost 8lbs!

For what it’s worth my surgeon said I did a really good job on my liver shrink diet and I had very minimal pain post op. I like to think it was cause I shrunk it down so small there wasn’t as much to retract and therefore I had less bruising and stuff on my Insides?? Or they didn’t have to pump me full of so much air because the surgeon had room to get in there. I could be wrong but I stuck to it 100% and had minimal pain (just felt like I did a bunch of crunches).
