Liquid Diet Suggestion?

It occurred to me that Slim Fast would make a great addition to a liquid diet and would at least do something more for hunger pangs. What do you think Sisters? Does this qualify? I am working right up the day before surgery and didn't want to be faintin' on the job.

Liquid Diet Suggestion?

I have a feeling that it will not qualify for the liquid diet, too much protein for one thing. Do ask your doctor if it is okay and let us know, I could be wrong! Best wishes!

Liquid Diet Suggestion?

Yeah, I thought about the protien, etc. Probably why I haven't seen it suggested. Hmmm....I suppose lots of Dr. Pepper will help. LOL.

Liquid Diet Suggestion?

If you are talking about a clear liquid diet, then not allowed. If you are talking about a full liquid diet, I would suggest asking your doctor.

How long are you to be on a liquid diet?

Liquid Diet Suggestion?

Dr. has not mentioned liquid diet yet. I see him on 1/18 and I will discuss then. Nurse already told me he does not do bowel prep. I am going to stress that I want to do bowel prep and liquid diet because why in heaven's name would I want anything left in there to stay there and turn to concrete with the addition of the narcotics? Makes no sense to me to put myself through unnecessary misery.

Liquid Diet Suggestion?

Hi, I didn't have to do a liquid diet before my tah/bso. The only bowel prep that I had was an enema that was given after I got to the hospital the morning of my surgery. I some gas to get rid of after my surgery but no extra problems - no constipation. Each dr has his/her reasons for whatever pre op prep they order. The best thing is to follow whatever he orders exactly.

best wishes.

Liquid Diet Suggestion?

I also did not have bowel prep or the liquid diet. All I had to do was stop eating at midnight the night before surgery. That was it. Period. And I did not have the gas/constipation issues many have had.

Please follow your 's orders for you and your surgery. If you choose a liquid diet and bowel prep that has not been ordered, you may compromise your system and cause dehydration that can affect your surgery and recovery. Best wishes to you.

Liquid Diet Suggestion?

I will do what the Dr. advises, but I am going to discuss my concerns with him. I know my system and I know narcotics will constipate me up to my eyebrows and I really dont' wanna go through that if I dont' have to. I have my list of questions all ready for the 18th. :-D
