From what I've read in the binder, Dr B puts his patients on a liquid diet for 5 days before. That way it shrinks the liver, he has to lift the liver to get to the stomach. When doing it lap, if the liver is too big, it could give him reason to go open!!

Thanks. Yes I am aware of needing to be in a losing state before surgery so the liver is smaller. I was just wondering if others have had this "diagnosis" and if it should cause me worry. I'm at least 3 months out from surgery so I will be losing a bunch of weight before on my multi disaplinary prep diet. Thanks Tom

With the DS: there is no stoma, so no stoma strictures; there are no limitations (other than volume) against drinking before, during or after meals; 80% of ingested fat is malabsorbed; 98.9% of type II diabetics are CURED of this devastating disease, with data showing stable cure over 10 years out; there is the best average weight loss and most durable (average 76% excess weight loss going out 10 years) of all of the bariatric surgeries. That's why I had a DS!
