Hello I just had my surgery done on Monday 10/28/19 and I think I have been doing alright sticking to my diet. Mainly the clears. I might be shorting my self a little on water intake but im try to work that up as much as i can. My meals have mostly consisted of about 2-3 TBS of Beef Bone broth and today i added a small dash of garlic powder. My faience brought me home some Propel drink mix witch has helped me get more liquids down.

I actually found my self here doing a google search on if i was crazy for having a massive craving for pickles and pickle juice. Mind you pickles with homemade sour cream based ranch dip was one of my favorite snacks pre op. And i also had 1-3 drinks of pickle juice with 3-5 slices of pickles for my snacks up till 4 days before my surgery i know i was cutting it close >

Thank you for the response. its been rough trying to get my liquid let alone my meals down this past week since my surgery and the cravings have been up and down sometimes they are there sometimes not at all. except for the pickle juice haha thats been pretty constant

It did not bother me. I mixed it in with my tuna and mayo sometimes. Everyone is different though.
