I'm assuming your liver must be smaller than most of us? The reason they give for the preop diet is typically to shrink your liver to make the surgery safer for you and easier for the surgeon.

Maybe! Around 5 years ago my liver numbers started to look troubling but I got it under control. No one has said anything, and I'm not getting blood work specifically from my surgery center for another two weeks, but I think back when I started the process my primary ordered labwork and probably shared it with the surgeons office. So yeah maybe that's it.

I use MyFitnessPal

I found it using my pc and started testing it. It seems pretty nice. I tried to put it on my phone and it keeps giving me an error, so I'll try that later. I do like the recipie adder, it was super simple. I compared the caleries and fat etc to what the baritastic app says and what the actual food says and it was way closer. I have been eating canned chicken sandwiches lately and the can says it has 2.5g fat for the 5 oz can. Fitness pal said 3g and baritastic says 10g. I got scolded by my dietition for eating too much fat and I found out it was the app being wrong instead of what I actually ate so I'm careful to check that now lol. Now if I can get it to work on my phone, that will be great.

Had my last dietitian appointment today. Its weird that it was my last of any type of appointment until my actual surgery date. He just went over my 2 week pre-op diet. They had never mentioned a calorie limit in any of the classes, so I was surpised to find out that they want me to only have up to 800 calories per day for the 2 weeks. Mostly they expect this to happen because of the limited food and low carbs. I was planning on eating cream Soups though, strained like they allow on their list but he said to be careful of carbs and to not go over the calorie limit. I think I'm going to have a tougher time then I thought. I have to just keep reminding myself that its temporary:)

I just got my clever fox wellness planner! It looks awesome. I'm almost scared to write in it though. Like if I put things down in writing that it'll jinx things. I know I've done all the steps, meetings, insurance approval,paid all dues and I have a surgery date set, but its been such a long time (dec/jan) that it almost doesn't seem real.

I'm thinking about getting one. Haven't quite decided yet!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
