    Banded on Feb 1st

    I really like the Designer Whey protein powder! I made shakes with it back in the day when I did low carb. That was the best one I ever had back then... Now I really like the Muscle Milk RTD shakes so I just ordered 2 flavors of the Protein powder of Muscle Milk... cake batter and brownie batter..:bananapartyhat: You didn't have staples? Lucky! Did you just have stitches??

    High Protein/Low Carb

    When I was looking at flights to Tampa..it did say Tampa Bay! lol I got my staples taken out on monday...I go back in 6 weeks to get a fill..then I guess I get one every 6 weeks supposedly after that... depending on how well or not well you are doing I guess... I've heard that my dr is very conservative on the fills so we'll see what really happens. Aww...thanks for the kind words hon! I'm really trying to make this year about myself.. I've had a hard...really hard..last 5 years so I really want my wants and goals to come to fruition...I'm trying to have a really positive outlook. I think it can only help!

    High Protein/Low Carb

    Otay..so after we get to point where we are eating normal food after the surgery... we're supposed to do high protein and low carb.. is anyone gonna kinda do atkins and if so.. is it gonna be like the original one where you eat however much cheese, meat, etc... or are you gonna do a "lighter" version where you are watching the calories more?? Just curious what everyone is gonna do...

    Glad to hear you are doing good hon! Which of the staples bother you the most? Where the port is bothered me the most...and then when they start to itch...not fun!! Did you get your staples out yet?? How is work going? At least the week is half over already!

    Good luck tomorrow to...

    Good luck tomorrow everyone!! I think the ones from last week are just recovering... I saw a couple of them posting on the Post Op board.

    Pre Op

    THey just weigh you...give you instructions about your post-op diet and what you should do if certain problems arise...how do take care of the staples, etc... You'll talk to your Dr. and he'll go over the whole thing about surgery day..what exactly is gonna happen..at that time you can ask him any questions you have. If you think you're gonna have questions, write them down so you can take them with you so you don't forget to ask something. Then you should prolly be meeting with the nutritionist so you guys can go over your post op diet and ask her any questions you have. That's about it!! Good luck hon!!

    Day 2 of my new life...

    Yah, I think it's seems to be only real food protein that makes you not hungry! Lots of people did say after day 3 it wasn't so bad.. never happened for me..but for you hopefully it does.. I never did stick to the full liquid thing.... but I wound up losing 8lbs since the first day I had my doc's appt... so that was good..especially because when I had some class thing and they weighed me..I was 6lbs more than what I was on my first day..so it's almost like I lost 14 since I had to relose those 6lbs. How is that ISOPLEX stuff? I lused to like Designer Whey the best..but it's been years since I've had it. I really like the Muscle Milk RTD ones... Wait so you only have to do the liquid diet for a week?? Girl, you'll be fine.. I think the 2 week thing is just wrong...and just not American!
  21. Just curious to what everyone's favorites are? Back in the day when I did low carb I really liked the Designer whey Protein powders.. are there any other ones that are good? GNC is having a sale buy 1 get another 50% off.. since I'm on the liquid diet.. for real now.. I bought 2 of those Isopure drinks that have like 40G of protein.. it was okay..not bad at all... that's an awesome amount of protein for that one drink...and it has zero carbs and zero sugars.. and I kinda figured it would be a good mixer for rum and vodka. I also like the Muscle Milks and the Atkins RTD are okay..but I'm soooo sick of chocolate..lol I'm not a sweets person AT ALL! I rather have cheese and crackers, guacamole, a steak, etc...

    Otay..I wrote this last night on another thread but I figured I'll make a new one for it.. I'm just copying and pasting from last night... here we gooooooooooo Otay I can't sleep.. so I'll tell you guys about my day..got here around 10:50...I was supposed to be here at 10:30..but I'm always kinda late..lol I can literally get here in like 12 minutes I guess I push that "time to leave" envelope sometimes.. Besides, when is a hospital ever on time.. NEVER! Got here, signed in waited, preregistered, etc. There was a girl who came in after me that was at my info session and in the same class day as me so we chatted a bit. It was nice to see a familiar face! I got called back about 11:20 or so...met my nurse...she was VERY VERY nice... she explained a bunch of stuff..asked a bunch of questions, etc. I had to get completely undressed and had a gown and slipper things to put on..when she came back in..then a medical student came in to ask me a bunch of questions too.. he was really cool...then the nurse came back in and they both asked a TOOOOOOOOOOON of questions...then I got in the bed and she gave me a heparin shot for the blood thinning...and then she did my IV..which wasn't bad at all...and I hate needles...I asked about getting a beer in the IV but no go..LOL then they turned on the tv for me and left the room... I got to watch All My Kids(Children) so that was cool!!! Then dude Tyrone.. that name is hilarious! came in to take me to the operating room...oh yah.. during the time I was waiting.. some took my bp, I talked to the anesthesiologist, talked to my Dr..surgeon.. etc...he had already done 3 surgeries so he had 5 more to go...he was really nice and in good spirits... oh yah, whenever they asked me what I was having done.. cuz they ask you a MILLION times... I told each one full body liposuction they all got a kick outta that.... I got wheeled into the surgery room.. then I got a little nervous.. everyone introduced themselves... and they got me all ready to scoot over on the surgery bed/table.. then the undid the back on my gown and they all checked out my tattoo...lol they put some warm blankets on me.. told me that I'd be taken good care of... I told them I just wanna wake up cuz I have 2 kids at home and they assured me that of course I was gonna wake up! they then put on a mask over my face to help me to relax..or is that what puts you to sleep? then...I woke up in recovery... not sure how long I was in recovery...don't really remember what even went on there.. they brought me up to my room.. got me in my bed and got me all situated.. it was prolly around 4:45 at that time.. they gave me some morphine..met my nurse.. she told me to call her when I had to go potty.. and then I've just been hanging out the rest of the day... seriously it's been a really good experience..everyone is nice here! I have a nice big room with an awesome view on the 10th floor.. I can't wait to drink some damn Water though. I call the nurse when i need more morphine...cuz she's my pusher... and it's actually really nice just to be relaxing...honestly the only bad thing is the gas pain..that's the worst part..everything else is no big deal at all... So I guess that's my story.. if I missed anything or left anything out.. just ask... Who's next??!! lol

    GOOD!! I'm glad it's gonna work out for ya!! That's awesome! Yah girl you can just get some Children's Tylenol...I like the grape flavored..lol or if your doc allows you to swallow pills after surgery..then take the pills.. you really won't need anything stronger than that! As for the puker dude...:puke: his name is Ralph... LOL Just click on more emotions or full editor..he's toward the bottom..called "puke" lol he's always been one of my favorites!
