    It sounds totally normal. I am 9 days out and the first few days you're only supposed to sip Water. Approximately two tablespoons every 15 minutes, so just keep at it I had the bottle of water beside me 24/7 constantly sipping sipping away. And it slowly gets easier and you can drink more at what over the next five days or so

    A drain could be needed but the over whelming majority of the time it will be surgeon preference (ie that surgeon likes to put a drain in all their patients). Easiest way to find out is ask

    I had to have a drain and it stayed in for a week. It was a pain in the butt and make that side of my body not heal as fast but it was so simple when the Dr removed it, I didn't even feel it, no joke there is no reason why your family dr couldn't remove it unless your surgeon just insists on him doing it.

    Misskar reacted to Sherry Rice in Freezing protein powders   
    Freezing whey Protein has no effect on it. It can change the original consistency of what you had frozen though. Cooking Whey protein depends on how long and at what temp you cook it. Whey Protein begins to break down the amino acid bioavailability when the temperature hits 167 degrees Fahrenheit. That breakdown makes the protein much harder for the body to digest. As an example: if you cook it at 194 degrees Fahrenheit for over 5 minutes you still have 80% solubility, so you only lost 20% efficacy. What bodybuilders do is mix it in after its heated and eat it right away. Also, don't always cook it. Make shakes, stir into pudding, applesauce, etc. Hope this helps [emoji106]

    If you have a pre-existing condition of GERD (aka acid reflux) than you should seriously consider Gastric Bypass over VSG. Please discuss this fully with your surgeon next month as it is crucial for determining the right surgery for you.
    I also disagree with the previous poster's statement of "so many fewer complications and long term complications seem better." Not an accurate assessment of RNY versus VSG. Again, work with your surgeon on getting the facts for your situation.
    Good luck!

    I had reflux before visa and did the sleeve with no problems at all. My hubby had rny 11 years ago he had reflux before and after. His recovery was awful with lots of complications. I am biased. Vsg wins hands down for me. So many fewer complications and long term consequences seem better- i.e., Vitamin absorption and medication restrictions aren't a problem. That's my 2 cents.

    Hi, I don't have a date yet, but nutritionist has given me a pre-op diet to try. it is 1200 calories. designed to shrink the liver, so it is out of the way. it is low fat low carb. I believe I need to do it for 2 weeks prior to actual surgery.
