    I bought three pairs of size 8 petites. The scale hates me, but it felt good buying a single digit size.

    losingit2013 got a reaction from dork in Researching doctors...   
    I chose Dr. Kelly and am schedule for June 10th. I work for a company that makes surgical medical devices. I researched the docs who use those tools first, but could not afford the hospital stay. So, I asked the surgeons:
    1. Does the hospital have a blood bank and crash carts in the rooms
    2. What type of tools they use. How often do they replace them. Staples misfire...some brands more than others. It was astonishing that some were reluctant to answer the question!
    3. Credentials. I insist on have a surgeon who is a FACS because that is not easy to obtain.
    4. How many surgeries performed with percentage of complication rate. If they dance around this subject, RUN.
    I actually took my finalists to our engineers and surgeons. Dr. Kelly has professional credibility among the surgeons in the States. That mattered to me. It means he's actively involved in his profession.

    You've gotta give some credit to all these fat women having sex 4 days after surgery. I would have sliced off my partner's willy if he had tried anything at four days out.

    OMG, I thought the same, on both points.
    I have increased my intake from 25 cal to 200, but it's really hard. I do a lot of walking to move things down. I don't want to stretch my stomach or get a leak, so I can't imagine eating fatty solids. I bought this thing out of pocket-Im not going to waste my $$.
    Although, I cannot lie, egg whites or a puréed egg sounds delightful. cheers to next week!

    I downloaded an app on my phone that is a stopwatch, and all day long, I set it at 10 minute intervals to remind me to sip my Water. It has really helped me to get down the right amount of fluids every day. If I am drinking plain water, I find that I can take a sip every 7 minutes, but anything other than water I set for 10 minutes so I don't ever feel too full. I am probably only at about 300-400 calories a day, but my Dr. told me to focus on fluids before Protein, which is what I do. Most days I can get in both my fluids and my protein though, but only by supplementing my food with Protein Shakes and using the timer to remind me to sip.

    I know it is hard. I went through the exact same thing. When I came home from the ER I decided - no matter what- i will get my fluids in. So for 2 weeks - literally non-stopped sipping Water, light V8 juice, the low cal gatorade , broths and 2 Protein Shakes a day. I became very well hydrated. After that 2 weeks - I felt so much better and by that time was able to increase my calories. You are in a fragile post-op stage. Just concentrate on your fluids for the next 2 weeks- it will get easier. Doesn't it blow you away when you see people write that they eat pizza in week 2 or 3??????? I can't even imagine having pizza now and Im 5 months out. Keep us posted.
