    Hey guys!!!! Just wanted to update u on my 6 days post op! Theres really no big suprises, except.... How not hungry u are lol!! Im shocked, its such a weird feeling. So ya, theres pain, and dizzies, but as long as u are on top of ur meds, its pretty do-able. The gas is going to be ur enemy. But like everyone says walk walk walk! Everyday im feelin abit better than the one before. Today im feelin great!! It really a task to get the 60+ grams of protein in per day!! It takes me 4 hours just to drink one shake, but each shake is 30 gs so i only need to do that twice before bed.. I suggest u get a shake u like the taste of because thats wat u'll be tasting alllll day long, and the higher the protein the better, that way its easier to do. Im using the premier protein chocolate 30g pre mixed from costo!! I think its the best bet! Anyway guys and gals... Goodluck, cant wait to start hearing bout your surgeries!!! Talk soon
