    Hi Everyone!
    I am very new to this site and have never posted a topic here either.
    I am half-way through the process to have my WLS Surgery and could always use friends who have had the surgery or waiting like me. I haven't told any of my friends at all and am a bit lonely right now. My parents know, but they don't count. LOL. I live in the Scarborough Area and will be having surgery at Humber River Hospital probably around the middle of October - Yeah!!
    Anyone out there wanna chat.

    elisabeth1968 got a reaction from lily3 in Since your surgery, what are some of the things you struggle with? How do you cope?   
    Hello friends, where do i start...i am in my 5 th week. I eat too fast which makes me throw up; i wake up nauseous every morning due to being dehydrated. I hate throwing up because it takes me the entire day to recoup. ok what is with throwing up foam!!
    I can tolerate cheese, very limited quantity of eggs, it is hit or miss with meat. Chili works for me, sweet potato and potato dumplings but only a few. Soft meatballs, Peanut Butter on 1/4 english muffin.
    It is trial and error at this point i think. Just when you think you have it figured out you throw up lol.
    Good luck everyone

    elisabeth1968 reacted to soontobehealthymom in Pen Pal Goodie Boxes?   
    So, I was thinking, how fun would it be to have a monthly pen pal? Someone new each month to send a box of goodies or things that you have found helpful. It is something that I have been thinking about for sometime now and would like to get started. There would of course be a spending limit and some general rules but I wanted to get a feel as to if anyone would be interested in participating.
    If you are interested reply with an email that I could send you more info to. I would love to get this started!!

    Hi everyone!
    Today I started Purée Phase. I was excited this morning, but it's so hard to eat slowing. My nurse told me to get a baby spoon that that would help me with bite size!
    I had stage 2 baby food with seasoning and my pouch hurts a little. A friend told me its because I ate it too fast! Don't know how much slower I am going to eat.
    Had cottage cheese for Breakfast and super hard to chew it to applesauce texture.
    How should I proceed!

    My surgery date is March 23rd. My surgeon requires a two week pre-op diet which consists of four Protein Drinks daily and only Clear Liquids. Well I have three days till I start and let me just say I am eating anything and everything I can. I'm so excited for this life changing surgery and I'm scared. I know I will be able to eat things I want in moderation again someday. I just feel like this is the time to eat whatever guilt free! Anyone else experiencing this "last supper syndrome" ?

    What should I pack for the hospital? My doctor said I will be in the hospital for 4-5 days. Is that right? Is just preparing me for worst case scenario?

    i had my surgery on april 2nd, i was not in too much pain after. i think it was just the soreness but they give you pain meds. take the pain meds to avoid needing them asap and then taking an hour for them to kick in. I had alot of ice chips which helped.
    good luck

    I'm from Brampton too! There isn't a 4 year wait though, my first appt at Toronto Western was June 5th 2013 and my surgery day is May 28th. I have to say the wait was worth it, in those few months they prepare and educate you for the surgery and life after. The time went quickly and I feel prepared now

    elisabeth1968 got a reaction from OregonTeacher in 5 days post-op   
    hello everyone, my name is elisabeth from toronto canada. i had surgery april 2nd 2015 and am craving eating with a fork and knife. It is very hard on the brain considering we have gone almost 1 month on liquid.
    i am feeling a little grumpy these days. cant wait to start the pureed diet in order to gain a little variety.
    i freeze yogurt and then add 2% lactose free milk in the blender with a scoop of Protein. it is very refreshing and a change.
