  1. I also had my surgery on the 21st and I drank diluted apple juice and lots of Popsicles. I bought Protein Drinks can't stomach them. Tried the Unjury chicken broth made me nausea and the unflavored Protein smelled and taste ungodly. I feel fine with just drinking. I went for a walk today had a little bit of chicken broth from chicken soap that I could stomach and I felt great no problems. I've already lost 8 lbs. woohoo!!! You'll be fine just stay hydrated and walk as much as you can. Good luck:)

  2. One thing I've noticed is that I really do need to be sitting up very straight' date=' or at times kind of lean back when drinking. I realize now how badly I slouch right were my esophagus meets my stomach. The right wound where they took out my stomach hurts more if I don't stay on top of the Tylenol. (which is really wierd, because I never thought Tylenol worked at all). Don't let yourself get dehydrated! You WILL get through this!!!!! You were tough enough to have this done, you can certainly handle these bumps/ mountains in the road. Keep us posted. We're here for you.[/quote']

    Thanks for the encouraging words and support. I'm so happy I found this site it has made my journey so much better :)

  3. I feel the same way! I feel normal again like it never happened. I thought my insides would feel a bit different but they don't

    You two are truly lucky. I'm not in intense pain but I'm in pain and it feels like something was pulled out of me in the right side. Still adjusting to everything. Trying to get the fluids in which is hard and the Protein yea I'm lucky if I get in 10 grams a day.

    I don't have any regrets. I thought long and hard about my decision and im in it for the long haul. No one said it was going to be easy. Thanks for all the support my VST family:)
