  1. If you're having trouble with your shoulder it's definitely gas. It's such an annoyance! I've been lucky enough not to get shoulder pain. My surgery was on 11/10. And every since then my shoulder has been in pain! It never goes away.... ???????? nothing is helping me. ???????? Everything except of that is great! I'm able to drink 26-30 ounces a day. Which is good I guess, I have been able to do light workouts, and I haven't been in pain minus the shoulder issue. I just want the pain to go away! ☹️☹️ Have you tried a heating pad? Yes! I tried that yesterday. And it seemed to help for the most part. I also tried the chewable gasx but that didnt help me.

    Any November surgeries?

    I agree!!!! My battery is dead in my scale, and it's killing me???????????????? I'm gonna get that darn battery today! And see what the results are. I did notice since yesterday was my first day wearing jeans since the surgery, that I didn't have to tuck and roll, struggle, and there wasn't a need for a belt for my pants to stay up! But I opted to put the belt on because it felt weird! ????????????????

    Any November surgeries?

    I picked up some yogurt ice pops from target. I had some yogurt yesterday. I haven't touched not one ounce of chicken broth ???????????????? cranberry juice is all that I have been drinking besides Water. Lollipops have been delicious because I was sick of ice pops and cold stuff makes me get chest pains.... Weird. I have apple sauce too. My doctor said anything that is milk based I can eat. He also said that I could eat some oatmeal as long as I use milk to mix it up. Hopefully that will help! ????????

    Any November surgeries?

    So my surgery was November 10. I remember nothing except for the doctor asking me if I was ready and I agreed. And then I woke up! Sore as hell. But I was able to tolerate the pain. For me the pain is like giving birth to a baby! My hospital didn't provide a belly band they offered a pillow. However I went to Walmart and bought one! The darn thing was $10 and it's a life saver!!!! I have worn it everyday since I left the hospital ???? now don't get me wrong it was painful the night of the surgery I had a button that I could push ever 10 minutes for a narco but it made me so tired! So I opted not to use it at all. I am not able to drink the 15ml of liquid hydrocodone I feel like it keeps getting stuck in my throat! So far since being home I haven't had a bowel movement but my doctor said that I could eat a banana! I only ate one bite and handed it over. I'm not hungry! And I keep feeling like when I drink something I feel it sitting right there in my throat and it's barely making its way to my stomach! Now that the surgery is over I'm back on this liquid diet ???? I'm over the chicken broth, apple juice makes me sick, sugar free Jello taste horrible! But I have a new love for cranberry juice! That's all I have been able to manage since Tuesday and a bite of ice cream. I have stayed away from the scale although I am eager to know what it will say in two weeks!
  7. So I'm currently on day 3 of my liquid diet.... I have no interest for the Protein shakes, the ones that I have are disgusting! Any suggestion? I do love the Soup, and the sugar free Jello, and the sugar free Water. But I need protein..... November 10, isn't coming fast enough for me :-( All suggestions are welcomed.

    My surgery date is November 10! I am super excited!!!! It's not coming fast enough ????☺️ I was nervous at first when I started my liquid diet. But being on it I have noticed that I'm not hungry at all. So I'm guessing that I was a mental thing! I just pray that the 10 gets here soon because the wait is driving me crazy ????????
