Surgery Pre-op Diet Starts Tomorrow

Hello Everyone, so tomorrow really starts the next part of the rest of my life. I've made lots of changes since starting prep for my surgery since I first saw the Dartmouth Hitchcock team.

The purpose of the diet is to make the liver release carbs. When this happens the liver gets softer and easier to work with. This is important because the surgeon needs to lift the liver to get to the stomach. Calorie amounts are between 800-1000 a day so as you can see I will drop weight before the surgery.

I'll be sure to post to let people know. I'd love it if you decide to follow my blog.

Surgery is two weeks from tomorrow on March 3rd.

Andrea
