Day 1 of Liquid Diet

14 Dec

I now officially feel like I am going into a pre-op tunnel, getting more and more focused on what is to come with this surgery, with this whole thing occupying a lot of my background processing at any given time. 

Today is day 1 of my pre-op liquid diet, and I am fully prepared for this to be a bitch.  I am currently sipping a Costco Premier Protein shake for breakfast.  I have guidelines for what I can have, but I don’t have a calorie guideline to shoot for.  I’m going to have to check into that today to see what other people have as calorie guidelines.  The only sample schedule that is included in my guidelines shows a 4 oz protein drink for breakfast, lunch, dinner, evening, with 1-2 oz of other full liquids at breakfast, lunch and dinner. That is a ridiculously small amount of calories for someone pre-op, isn’t it?  Is that really what I should be shooting for?  Craptacular. 

Today I have my pre-op education class at the hospital.  I’m not sure what to expect at this class, I think its pretty focused on the surgery/hospital experience and immediate post-op experience.  So it should be interesting.
