I am finishing day 1 of liquid diet and it wasn’t so bad. I am kind of use to sugar free and artificially sweetners because I have done Keto on and off for awhile.
I am to drink 3 shakes and 2 Protein Bars and unlimited broth, sugar free Jello and popsicles. Oh and a boiled egg if needed. Why boiled egg I don’t know but I ate it!

I haven’t felt deprived but I will prolly get bored soon. Just hoping the next 13 go by quickly!

Good luck all!

Day 11 of my pre-op diet and VSG on Monday 10/11. I’ve actually been really good and have enjoyed the Premier Protein shakes and have added the vanilla flavor of Premier Protein to my coffee. I should have done that years ago! I’m down several pounds so I’m sure this liver shrinking diet will lead to a successful surgery. I’m stocked up on broths, Isopure protein unflavored, sf popsicles, Jello and cases of Premier. Let’s do this! 😆

I’m two days post-op. I’m struggling to drink enough liquids bc of how long it seems to take my stomach to digest these stupid pills. So many pills! Anyone else struggling with this?

So I am starting my preop diet a little early, I'm really concerned about the size of my liver. I feel focused right now but I am at work. I ended up just getting frozen meals because I love to cook and I tend to overeat big time. I'm so excited and nervous. Ganbatte everyone! Fighting! Let's Go!

Just had a gastric bypass on Oct 7th. Recovery is going very well. Still not hungry. I have been getting my liquids and Proteins down. I just have pain from my one incision where they removed my gallbladder with a huge gallstone in it. I walk everyday even though its painful but i know i have to stay strong for recovery. 👍🏾😌

I was sleeved on October 8th.. has some complications (passed out when I tried to stand up) so I had to stay in the hospital half a day longer but now that I’m home, I’m doing better. Got lots more Protein down today and about 45oz liquid. Doctor told me not to count, just pay attention to urine color and whether mouth is wet or dry.

I think my biggest complaint is a headache that I get when I’m really tired or when I was up from sleeping. I have my post op appt on Wednesday, so I’ll ask, but has anyone had to deal with a headache after surgery??

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
