  1. Woohoo!!!
    I had my VSG surgery on Thursday, 11/15...
    Some of the things I've learned in the last couple days:
    Applesauce is the devils food. (It's the only thing that's made me vomit so far).
    Getting enough fluid/protein in is a challenge... Any tips?
    (I'm vegetarian, so bone broth is out...)

    Walking has always been my favorite form of exercise, short of swimming, but it is now a necessity... get that gas OUT!

    & I LOVE nurses!! I was in intense pain post-op & the nurses were amazing.. they were amazing throughout my short stay.
    (& they are the only people on the planet that can tell you: "I can hear your intestines moving!" & make it sound like: "& the Oscar goes to...") :D

    Thanks to everyone on here who has helped get this journey started.
    I'm incredibly excited for the next phases moving forward! :)
