It’s complimentary.

I had my dietician appointment yesterday, I start my pre-op diet on Monday and boy am I nervous about that as my husband is away the whole week I have to do the diet which is

5 x Slimfast shakes
3 pints water
1 salty drink (how necessary is this? As much as I love marmite not sure I can drink it!)
3 sticks of gum
up to half pint of sugar free jelly (can I buy the ready made ones?)

I then have my pre-op on Wednesday 6th March.

Yes and yes to both your questions. The salty drink is very important to keep your electrolytes in balance (see link)

As for your husband being away, I would see that as a blessing – no-one else to worry about! Good luck with it: it’s the first step of your journey 😉
