    Bigger sips today...concerned

    Well said Dixie...I'm 9 days out today too and I searched the same keywords and found this is normal. That said its such a big site...so repeats are fine. However you nailed it by saying "any advice" being a blanket question. We need to not be so sensitive here...take the advice or don't. Butter is the picture of true success!!! His discipline is crazy and his results show that. I'm ALWAYS looking for his replies because he lives it and I personally need to hear the truth. I feel if someone takes his advice as offensives in any of his posts or replies, then maybe they weren't ready for this.

    I myself am giving up the crap that got me to where I am. I'm 8 days out and stopped bread, starches a month before my pre-op diet even. I felt so much better and don't want to go down that road again. A little hear and a little there eventually adds up. Again that's just me and dedicating 110% to this lifestyle change. So if you're gonna do it just try as everyones different...ive known some 4 days out...some 4 months.

    December Surgeries?

    Hi everyone...4 days pot op. OMG I think ill live. I really questioned myself days 2-3. Not much pain but the GAS was unbearable. I felt it start at my sternum work up my esophugus just to cause massive nausea and dry heaves for 1 tiny ass little burp..WTH? So not fun. Every time I laid on my back, sat up or stood up to walk it out, I doubled over. My family would burl/rub me like a baby which did help. Gas x helped a little as did liquid gaviscom (ick) and big deep breaths' It is passing. The gas is minimal now...and burping not as painful...just my story in case anyone else feels this way, it is normal and it Sucks! But its getting better. Lo
  5. WOO HOO...happy new B-day to me. I am so excited, and anxious...leaving in 25 min for the hospital!!! I'll be on later to update everyone. If all goes well, mine is an outpatient surgery. XOXOXOXOX

    Yeah!!! Congrats...keep us updated.
  10. I still pre-op...but I to have small 4oz glass storage bowls with lids that I bought to prepare. Also using this small child size silverware for smaller bites. And we have small teacup serving size plates I plan to use as well. My NUT said when eating with family, keep the food in the kitchen rather then at the table ( like we did ). This way it's not right in front of you and easy to grab. The family can get up to the kitchen if they want seconds.

    Pre Op Diet Weight Loss

    I dont think there is a normal...every pound gone helps you in the end. Today is day 3 for me and I am down 8 lbs. But I am 5'8" and started at 333...and I drink LOTS and LOTS of water...and try to walk .5-1.0 mile a day.
  12. I am so glad you are OK...and I am very glad your surgeon was behind...even though you were in agony, had he been on time you wouldnt have had the BM, and that's a scarey thought...

    This Is Just A Bump In The Road...i Hope!

    Thank you Catherine...you're so right! I too was supposed to have the bypass in 05...was 2 months away. Then my ex husband and I seperated, and I moved out of state....I think I was not supposed to have that then either.

    How did yours turn out? My wonderful boyfriend told me not ot worry...worse case is the hospital is out of network, so after insurance the hospital fees will be 30%...and MOST hospitals take a small down payment and bill you the rest, as they cant get an exact cost until after the procedure. I'm hanging onto that right now.
