    Hi hon

    As far as I understand the advice is to come off CD to a higher calorie intake 2 weeks prior to surgery (your CDC will be able to advise you). It's so your will be back in non ketosis state and you will have had sufficient calories for optimal post op recovery and ongoing healing which will be essential in your case!

    Have you got a date for your pre-op check yet? You need to let your surgeon know you've been on CD too.

    Check with your CDC. I know for obesity surgery many places put you on CD type diets pre-op and the person stays on it right up to surgery but they have probably weighed up and pros and cons of the health risks of coming off plan versus risk of obesity related illnesses etc.
