I totally screwed up my pre-op diet. I was given a 2 week pre-op diet on my very first visit to the clinic. Nothing was ever said about it again. Then at the class I went to last week I was told to do fluids 3-4 days before the surgery date with the last day being clear fluids. As is that wasn't easy enough I screwed up and ate when I was not supposed to. Then I found out that I was actually supossed to do the 2-week pre-op diet. Here I am 4 days until surgery and completley freaking out. I have so many things already planned and scheduled around my surgery that I am just a mess right now......I called the office today and told them what I ate today. She told me not to do it again and I should be ok. "Should"??? What if I am not. How will they know if I am ready without cutting me open. Will they open me up and say oh well she obviously didn't do the diet so we are going to have to stop and reschedule. Does that happen? How do they know if my liver has shrunk enough before actually opening me up??? Is this a sign that I should not be doing this surgery? Have I royally screwed myself??? (sorry for the whinning)
