Pre-Op Liquid Diet

June 19, 2011 in Uncategorized


I started the Pre-Op liquid diet yesterday. Basically it’s an atkins shake every 2 hours plus water.  That’s it.  I spent the last week eating anything and everything I wanted.  By the time yesterday got here I was pretty much sick of eating.  That made day one easier.  Unfortunately today was not so easy.  By 3 pm, I was beginning to feel sick.  By 5 pm, I wanted a foot long philly steak and cheese deluxe from Charley’s so badly that I thought I would go crazy!  I thought about skirting out and getting it on the sly but I didn’t do it.  Why? Well for one thing, my brother, is voluntarily subjecting himself to the 10 day liquid diet with me.  Every 2 hours he texts me a pic of him drinking another shake.  Also, I know that this diet is supposed to help shrink my liver for the surgery which will make it easier for my surgeon.  Plus it’s only 10 days.  I have to think positive and remember what my brother tells me.  Hope in the future = Power in the present.  Where does the power come from? Jesus Christ.  He is the only One that can give me any ability at all to stay away from a Charley’s Philly Cheesesteak!
