  1. 11 pounds is great!!!! I'm sure you will be fine! Good Luck!
  2. I would call the number on your release instructions, you don't want to get dehydrated. I would start drinking water. Hope you are feeling well otherwise.

    Day 7

    I'm day 5 postop, still on liquids and my instructions say liquids for another week, then puree... it is interesting how the instructions vary post and preop. I'm just ready for mushy, soft food...
  5. I am on day 4 postop and have had a few cravings, but, I do not want to get sick. I still have the traveling gas that moves about inside my chest cavity and causes me to stop what I'm doing until it subsides, so painful. I have been drinking lots of water, no sugar tea, sf popcicles, sf jello.... I would love to have something like really mush soft refried beans, or mushy something.... but according to my instructions I still have a week to go on liquids. Honestly, not sure if I can make it another week without something mushy..... suggestions?? Please and thank you!
  6. I am on my 3rd day postop and wish I could say I didn't have much pain. Pain is better today but wow much more pain than I anticipated. the gas pressure in my chest has been terrible.....I've been taking my liquid pain meds and sleeping alot..... glad to know it gets better as each day passes.

    Just Had Surgery Oct 25

    I am getting banded tomorrow, from what I have read you won't feel very restricted until after your first fill. But sticking to the liquid diet and following the postop diet instructions is probably best. Good Luck in your journey!

    Pre Op Diet

    Today is day 7 of the preop diet, we had a family reunion yesterday and I did eat 2 meatballs and a tablespoon of hashbrown casserole. Up until then I had been sticking to the strict diet. I felt a bit guilty even though the portions were so small, but boy did it taste good. The scales show that I have lost 5 pounds so far so that is great motivation. Back on track for me, it hasn't been easy but the band is a tool and will keep me accountable.

    Pre-Op Diet?

    It is amazing the different pre-op diet variations, I think it just depends on each facility and doctor.
  23. i would love to have some bacon....lol... I am on day 4 preop and feeling very proud of myself so far!!!
  24. Good to hear all is going to well so far!! I hope I don't have much of the gas pains... I had my gallbladder out in 2002 and didn't experience much gas discomfort. Please keep us updated!! This is a great forum, each time I start feeling hungry on my pre-op diet, I login and become inspired!!!!
