    What Is Your Beverage of Choice?

    For me warm water with bullion cubes went down well. I couldn't tolerate sweet very well after all the shakes. I added unflavored protein as well.

    205.2 bleh! Wrong way ????
  7. How much soup/broth did you have a day? Did you have any issues with dehydration because of the salt from these? Immediately post op I would make 8oz of beef or chicken bullion at a time. I would pour it into a shot glass and sip one shot per 15 minutes. This way I could easily measure and track my intake. Early on I had to keep sipping as late as 10 or 11pm some days to meet my Fluid goals. I watered the cream of Soup down and strained it as well. I purchased the low fat version and you can get low sodium as well. I never had any issues with dehydration. I worked at it like it was my job.
  8. I saw mine once before surgery, and at every visit since surgery. In addition I joined the support group that is sponsored by my surgeons office and my NUT leads and attends the monthly meetings. You may find your surgeon does the same and could take advantage of free council that way.

    Hair loss

    Just wanted you to know you are not alone. I am 4 months out and it rolls across the bathroom floor at my house like tumble weeds if I don't sweep or vacuum every day. BUT you know what? I would do it all again knowing the success I have seen so far. I am not sure the Biotin helps other than making me feel like I am doing something,, but I take 5,000 per day. Good luck on your journey, and we will be growing our locks back in no time. ????

    I am so jealous of your cruise and I am glad you went. This tool will be with you for a lifetime and it seems you managed to navigate it pretty well. You were not perfect, but neither is life. ???? Best of luck on continued success!
