Day 5 of two week liquid pre-op diet....

on 8/17/12 5:51 am - NC
 I just wanted to post this for the upcoming pre-op diet folks.  Day one-not so bad, day two and three I thought my head would crack open with a massive 48 hour headache.  Day 4 I felt tired but today i feel wonderful and hope it lasts.  No hunger to speak of.....

 I am day four today. It is wild how our bodies respond to detoxing it!  My major symptoms were headache day one & two and light headed and dizzy day 2 & 3 (more so on day 3). Today is good so far!  Blessings on your journey!  We must be close on surgery date! Mine is 8/27 (was 28th but it got moved up one day).

I'm on day 7. I do pretty good all day but the evenings I still get hungry. I just drink tons which makes for not a very restful night! Good luck to you all.

 Lucky you. I am on day 8, and I am pretty much constantly hungry. CONSTANTLY. I really do not know how I am going to make it through the next 5 days, especially not the two days of clear liquids. I feel like garbage :(

I am day 5 post -op and remember that dreaded pre-op diet like I had it yesterday. I learned that keeping myself busy was the best way for me not to think about food. I spend 1 of the 2 weeks of my pre-op diet shopping for my kids back to school clothes. (at the mall....ahh!) Anyways, what a distration. It worked. The only bad side to this was that I was very wore out from staying so busy, that I was kinda tired before surgery. But it all worked out & doing good. good luck to you all - you can do this!
