Started liquid diet today

Recommended Posts

The first few days are the hardest! After day 3 I was a lot less hungry. You can do this! It’s only two weeks. Just count the days. :) good luck 🍀

It truly does get easier. Just grit your teeth and get through the first few days.

The liquid pre-op is tough. Mine was just 10 days, so yours is longer than what I had to do! Try to keep busy, distract yourself, if allowed eat sugar-free Jello or sugar-free popsicles to give the illusion of eating solid food, drink broth when you want something savory and just hang in there!

first off, i'm super proud of you!

the next few days are going to be hard - but you've got this! you've made this huge choice for yourself, and even getting to this part has been a journey, this is just one of the suckier parts of it!

i had to do four weeks of pre-op with my surgeon, so can promise it's going to get easier and you've got a whole community to build you up if you struggle!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
