Pre-op diet dizziness or light headed

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

 

My surgery is is scheduled for Monday 8/14/17. so I am like on Day 11 of the pre-op mostly liquid & veggies (some fruit) diet. I have lost like 15lbs/7kg but I have had recent bouts of a feeling like I am going to pass out a few times. I have checked blood sugars (lower but ok) and blood pressure. Anyone else have this?

Secondly, after tomorrow I am liquid only. I was thinking of slightly cheating tomorrow with some lean meat. I don't want to but I am feeling deprived and obviously a little weak and hungry.

What are you doing when the bouts occur? I get them just from standing up sometimes or in the shower (blood pressure) and when working out (blood sugar). But you've ruled these causes out. I'd definitely mention it to your surgeon.

James, put a call into your surgeon's office.  They're the best to give you advice.
