Meal Plans for One Week for the Pre-Op and Post-Op Liquid Diets
Your surgeon may put you on a low-calorie liquid diet before or after surgery. A pre-op liquid diet can help you lose weight and shrink your liver for a safer surgery. A post-op liquid diet can help you meet your protein and nutrient needs while you recover. Remember to always check with your doctor before starting any new meal plan!
Aim for AT LEAST 64 ounces of fluid each day. That will keep you hydrated so surgery is easier and recovery is easier. Drink water, flavored water, or another calorie-free beverage that is caffeine-free and non-carbonated.
