    LIver Shrinking Diet

    I start my 2 week diet on Jan 5..I have 4 protein shakes a day plus sf popsicles..jello..yogurt..low sodium soups/broth..and I get unlimited veggies. My surgeon says they added the veggies because patients missed the "chewing". I am going this week for my supplies

    Post-Op Fatigue

    Great view from your seats. I too have season tickets but mine are for a minor league team in the ECHL. I am having bypass surgery on Jan 19. I'm hoping to make it to the annual Teddy Bear toss on Jan 24. Its always a great game. I hope everything surgery wise goes well so I can attend the game

    Did I lose enough weight?

    I haven't had surgery yet but think about this..when is the last time you last 21 pounds in 2 weeks (aside from perhaps your preop diet) I can honestly answer never..great job
