  1. Thanks for the update on your tummy. Makes me feel good about going. You are moving right along. I am so excited for you. Now get your arm healed!
  2. Yahoo! How is your tummy feeling?
  3. Barbara continued prayers for you!
  4. What an odd thing to happen. Will keep you in my thoughts. Please keep us updated.

    Yeah Keys! Keep us posted!
  6. PM sent. I see our start weights are about the same. I want to get back to 135. I was there 2 years ago and it was a perfect weight for me.
  7. Please let us know how flavorless the stuff is. I have the Bariatric Advantage brand Meal Replacement powder and hate it. The taste isn't too bad but its so thick I have all I can do to drink it pre-op. Even added to double the Water its thick and foamy. unjury unflavored is fine mixed with Crystal Lite. The Profect etc tubes are ok because they are a small amount. I bought some 50 gram Profect too. I only have to drink 1 1/2 ounces (half a tube) to get the 25 grams of Protein. They work out a lot cheaper too. I feel like I am almost prepared for surgery. All I think I need to get in are popsicles and more Jello. Thanks everyone for the tips and encouragement. Keep them coming.
  8. Nina said the stuff in tubes is ok. So we are all set now. I still like the unjury best. I ordered the strawberry Sorbet flavor last night. This was really helpful to me. Answered questions I hadn't thought to ask. Thank you!
  9. Barbara my Wal-Mart didn't have them either. Other people in my area have found them at other Wal-Marts. Try drug stores too. CVS carries Profect. I bet Walgreen's carries another brand but I haven't looked. Fry's grocery has them so another grocery might as well. Thanks I'll look for the Isopure at CVS. I haven't tried that yet.
  10. Thanks! I'll let you know when I hear about the Profect. Its pretty easy to find in different brands. It will be by the body building stuff in the pharmacy section. At least that is where i have found it. I like the unflavored unjury and have just ordered more. I'm supplementing with it now. I have the chicken Soup but haven't tried that yet.
  11. I did find this thread. Scroll down to see what Vegas Angel posted. Unjury unflavored is ok. That is great in Crystal Lite and Jello. I'll ask about the Profect. I'm sure its ok because its clear. 25 grams of protein in 3 ounces. http://VerticalSleeveTalk.com/pre-op-post-op-diets/340-clear-liquids-only-stage-2.html
  12. So Dr. Aceves does not allow even the clear proteins like Profect?
  13. Glad you are home and feeling better! These 2 products can help a great deal with your Protein needs. The Profect protein in tubes can be found in CVS. Other brands of tubes at Wal-Mart and Fry's. The unjury unflavored is just fine in a bottle of Water with Crystal Lite. I am pre-op but have been sampling everything. It can also be mixed in Jello which is tasty. The directions for that are on their web site. Happy healing!

  14. Maybe I'll get over there on the 3rd. i'll be in Mexicali on the 3rd. Just not sure if it will be a reasonable time.
  15. I'll be having my pre-op testing on the 4th.
  16. Hi Barbara! Wishing you a pain free trip home!
  17. Yeah! Thanks for the update. I have been thinking about you both. :001_tongue:
  18. Yeah! Speedy recovery wishes for you both.
  19. He is having me do the same thing. Not a problem. I'm so excited I could do most anything now.
