    Thank you, everyone!
    Bland liver shrinking diet is getting boring now. Just til Wednesday evening though. Then liquid diet after op til I've healed more. But with little hunger rather than my low carb hungers which caused higher calorie intake for my often immobile body.
    Cheese and nuts are great liver dumping cavaliers but very heavy on calories. I ended up eating more and more which stopped any weight loss. I couldn't win. Reduced my insulin by half too. :)
    Liver shrinking diet not as good as that. Reduced insulin but fbg 16s.

    Im sure they will call my specialist who is very supportive.
    I'm working on keeping active and LSDiet rules, obeyed.

    All set to go, then, @ickihun?
    Hope you can relax today, and all goes well. You have been in eager anticipation of this for so long.
    Best wishes for the op, smooth recovery, and the outcomes you have been longing for.

    Thanks @Pipp. I'm ready.
    I've kept off the weight I needed to qualify. Shame my bgs haven't improved though. Roll on Thursday as my operation morning. :) :) :)

    I haven’t been paying much attention to this thread as I’ve never had anything much constructive to add, but good luck with the op @ickihun.

    Best wishes.
