    Firstly, STOP worrying! I went to a talk with a bariatric surgeon once and he said that they have no idea how much your liver shrinks becuase they don't check how big it is to start with! Stick to the diet (I did the food based liver shrinkage 2x) and both times was told that my liver was tiny, so it does work with food. Most importantly don''t cheat, and do not have a last supper the night before your op otherwise you will undo all of your hard work. Some people naturally have big fatty livers, and sometimes this does hinder the op, but most experienced surgeons can deal with this. So, just stick to the diet you have been given to give yourself the best possible chance of a straightforward op, and good luck!

    PS - I didn't lose any weight at all on my liver shrinkage (food) diet, so 8lbs is fab!

    Hannah huney,
    Not everyone takes to the milk diet, quite a few go onto a tight food diet.
    Both methods prove to help shrink the liver in preperation for the operation.
    It is just that the liver is such a soft tissue, it needs to be moved out of the way to assist the operation, its very delicate.

    So even on the instructions for the diet you have been given, you will shrink your liver considerably.

    No-one will be pointing the finger, this is just a little self doubt creeping in.
    Please dont be so hard on yourself.
    Stick to the plan and hopefully things will go well...

    Your probabaly at your friekiest a week or two before surgery.... Keep calm, stick to the rules and you will have done all you can...

    All the best, looking forward to hear about your progress.

    Hi there Hannah I did the milk diet for 5 days and then moved onto the low carb diet as I was not coping with the milk very well. However, I lost 10kgs on the diet and my liver was still big they still did my op, took them a little longer. I am now nearly 3 weeks post op.

    Take care Ellie xx
