Hello, I'm new here. I'm scheduled to be sleeved on May 17th and I'm excited, nervous, anxious, well everything under the sun. Any tips to help me finish these few days of this liquid diet. Any surgery twins out there?

You just have to get through it, its tough everyone who has done the pre op will tell you it stinks. The thought of being opened up and the surgeon being unable to continue with the surgery because of a huge liver kept me on track. You have only a few more horrid days and then if you are anything like me you will run to the theatre just so you can finish this torturous diet. { mine was 3 weeks } There will be a thread for May surgeries, you will find a buddy there. Good luck

Yea unfortunately you just have to tough the pre op diet out. For me (I didn’t have much post op pain) the pre op diet was the worst part of the process. The liquids post op was easier because you aren’t hungry at least.

My surgery is Monday and this pre op diet is killing me. I’ve been doing it since May 1st and i broke down and cried because I’m over broth, Soups, Protein Shakes (i can’t stand the taste)…I’m actually looking forward to the surgery because my practice has you on puréed foods once discharged from the hospital.

      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 .
