11/28 is my birthday. Its a good day.

My surgery is Nov. 8th. I am scared that even though i am following the prescribed diet, I must be doing it wrong and my liver wont shrink right.

It is a good day! I am sure you are doing it right, I think as long was we don't eat anything we are okay LOL! I am really trying to be positive about the liquid diet thing. I just had to do it for one day for another procedure and I did okay so my thought is one day at a time. You are almost there you can do it, keep me posted on how you are doing.

Anybody out there? I haven't scheduled yet, but it will certainly be in November. I'm still doing a little research, a bit nervous about traveling to Mexico by myself.
Can't wait to hear from others. Thanks and I will keep you posted.


I’m having mine in November! Very nervous

My surgeon doesn’t require the pre-op liquid diet. Only light eating for 3 days prior. I’m definitely getting nervous. Trying to stay positive. We’ve got this!

I am allowed 2 Protein Shakes, 2 small approved Snacks, and a lean cuisine type dinner per day up to 5 days prior, then im cut to 1 snack.

I am seeing others who aren't required to do the two weeks either but then there are others who are required to do it. So I am just following what my surgeon told me to do which is the two weeks. I think either way is going to be good, just depends on the surgeon.

Hi all! New to the site. Scheduled for surgery on Nov 1oth in Dallas (I live just north of Dallas) - Super excited and nervous. I'm on day 5 of the 2 week liquid...Sometimes it's way easier than I thought and other times it's way hard (when my brain starts it's madness about what I 'want' or 'deserve')

Glad to have others at the same stage as we go through this.

FYI - the fruity pebble Protein Powder is absolutely fantastic to me :) makes me feel like i had naughty Cereal for Breakfast instead of being on my liquid diet this week!!

one more day of liquids to go before Thursday surgery!!

Wednesday night I have a special bottle of pre surgery Ensure to drink along with two tylenol to prepare. Then Thursday morning I have to take an anti nausea med on the way to the hospital…..

so nervous!

Hi everyone. My surgery is on 11/23 with Dr. Fok in TJ Mexico. I start my pre-op diet on November 14th. My pre-op diet consist of Protein Shakes and salads with a Protein. I'm getting anxious as surgery gets closer. I just want to make sure I have everything I need when I return home.

I love the fruity pepples! But i buy the premixed shakes from alani. They meet my requirements but i feel guilty each time lol.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
