So here it is the final step before the rest of my life begins :) So nervous but yet excited at the same time. Starting my liver shrinking diet now. Dr said only need to do it for 2 weeks prior, but want to make sure I am following it so I am starting early. I have so many thoughts and feelings right now..kinda overwhelming. Things seemed like they were dragging on and taking forever to get to this phase...but man when the team decided I was ready I feel like I was grabbed up and SPUN on an axis and just now catching myself. I do remember when the Nutritionist said I was ready & they have submitted my name to the team I immediately said " WAIT, WHAT? NO TAKE BACKS NOW" lol She laughed and said "NO take backs, you are good to go and remember I am here for you if and when you need me".
So who is ready to walk this path with me starting the 20th of May! I am in GA btw.

My surgery date is also 5/20! My doctor wants liver shrink for 3 weeks. Im on day 2 and have to drink 5 Protein Shakes a day! They are so sweet wish there was an alternative! Good news is I just got all my pre op approval appointments so hoping those all go smoothly. Best news is Im off of insulin for the first time in years. Im ready to walk this path, grateful I found this blog. Good luck!

Greendragonfly, I have the same issue with the sweetness of Protein shakes... I have found a Flavorless Protein Powder that I really enjoy, it's GenPro2. I get mine at GNC, but it is also on Amazon. I also have found that if i pour the premade Protein Drinks into popsicle molds and freeze them then i can tolerate them better. I have already done my hospital check in just waiting for the same day surgery nurse and anesthesiologist to call for the "interview" with them for the day of information. :) Looking forward to walking this path with you ! One day at a time !
