    We don't really talk about calories much but are you supposed to be consuming a certain number of calories? I had my 3 Month post-op meeting with my surgeon last week and he reminded me that I'm supposed to be consuming 1200 calories or less everyday.

    Also happy to report that I'm officially down 63 pounds as of today!

    Ask the dietician attached to the surgical team for a meal plan. and stick to the level she suggests. so free fluids first, then the next level. then soft food - I had low calorie jellies ready and pureed fruit (baby puree level). For me she suggested that I get in plain yoghurt as she knew I liked it. and eat Protein first. my protein was mainly chicken, fish, eggs, and cottage cheese.
    But my greatest help was fresh unsweetened pineapple juice, to sip. It helped rid me of all the foamy mucous phlegm that was making life a misery for the first three weeks at home. Fresh pineapple juice really saved the day. My Doctor suggested it and it worked a treat after three hours of sipping it , a little at a time, I finally gained relief from all the vomiting of foamy phlegm.
    Here is why - fresh pineapples contain digestive a digestive enzyme in them called, "Bromelain".
    Bromelain helps break down hard to digest Proteins in our digestive tract naturally so we do not end up with gas, bloating, nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, burping or constipation. - enzyme bromelain is known to reduce phlegm and mucus in throat

    Yes, it has been worth every moment since my surgery date of July 26, 2017. I just wish I would have done it sooner. It's normal to get cold feet as this is a big lifestyle decision. You still have a few more days to research, talk to others who had the surger and most importantly pray that you will have no regrets. It will take a few adjustments afterwards, but it's durable. I love my sleeve. I've lost a total of 80lbs and feel great. No more knee pain. Diabetis and high blood pressure is gone. You will do fine I wish you all the bes in the new and excited journey. Keep us posted. We're here to support you.

    @Paloomino78
    struggles? what struggles?
    YES, YES, YES for me it was
    definitely worth it.!!
    I had a very easy recovery
    you might have some pain, gas,
    other normal side effects right
    after surgery.
    but in the long run, for me, (and
    many many/most OP) the WLS is
    totally worth it!!
    when/if you read bad stories/posts
    they stick out in your head - you don't
    see the posts about how wonderful
    things have gone.
    as far as your cold feet? - put a pair
    of socks on silly head
    common phrase many people say,
    "my only regret is not doing WLS sooner"
    good luck on monday
    speedy recovery

    Someone like me who's extremely nervous and scared due to surgery but it's normal feelings really dislike that you posted this comment because we're all here for the same thing and that's support and tips. Common sense when considering this your considering the whole package which is healthy eating and working out and living a healthy life. Unlike you who jumped into it by running to Mexico should have thought more about everything!!

    I used pre-packaged broth and also made my own using cut beef bone from the Asian market, carrots, celery, onion, salt and pepper. First I braise the beef bones then add a few cut up celery stalks, chunked whole carrots and onion. Boil for a couple of hours and salt and pepper to taste. Then strain out the solid ingredients. I also add a little fresh lemon juice and a little finely chopped fresh cilantro and jalapeno just before serving. The home-made broth made the liquid diet far more palatable and I looked forward to having it for dinner.

    Really well so far. But I have to admit when I get home from work it's a struggle. At this point I make an effort to go outside or to the gym. I have to admit just having another person like yourself doing the same thing makes it a tad bit better. Good luck !
