Re: How much weight did you lose on the pre-op liquid diet?
I was supposed to lose 10% of my body weight by surgery date. That was 37 pounds. By the time I went in to start my pre op diet I was down 15 pounds already.( I had a long insurance wait.) So in three weeks on the post op diet I dropped 22 pounds to weigh in and dr.s and on surgery day I was down 5 more pounds below that so a total of 27 pounds on the three week post op diet. My doctor was very happy. My weight was up 5 pounds post op but today on day 4 post op it was back down to my preop weight. Boy did that make me happy. Good luck and stick with it. You'll make it to the required weight before surgery.
