How long do they put you on optifast for an 18cm liver span?

I'm currently awaiting my consent appointment in Hamilton (was told I should hear from them within the next few weeks) but I'm bored and anxious for more knowledge. Curious how large your liver was and how long you had to go on optifast for it.
Hi Waxwing for me I was 300 pounds when I started opti and they put me on it for four weeks. I think it goes by your weight rather than liver size.
For example, if you are 300 pounds they put you on for 3 - 4 weeks, 400 pounds, 4 weeks, 500 pounds, 5 weeks. A friend had the surgery too and she was just under 600 pounds and she was on opti for 6 weeks. Hope this helps.
