    Non Scale Victories

    I love boots so congrats on that!!!! I’m hoping my boots (wide calf) will fit better soon. I can get them zipped but it’s like compression socks.

    Non Scale Victories

    That’s awesome!!
  3. I had surgery on 11/29 and I’m trying to not focus too much on the numbers on the scale or on my clothes. My non scale victories since 11/29 Had to have a spacer put on my wedding ring I’m wearing a coat I haven’t worn in 2 yrs I got rid of my pre-surgery work uniforms I’ve cleaned my closet twice already What are your non scale victories?!

  5. They need to get your pain under control now. I was on a PCA of dilaudid for the first 24 hrs. I could push the button every 10 minutes. After I was off of that I could only get Tylenol because I had an allergic reaction to lortab.
  6. Genepro is an awesome unflavored protein powder. My RD recommended it. I stir it into yogurts and I’ll blend it into my Premier Protein shakes (brings the total protein up to 45 grams). I will blend it into my soups as well but I make sure the soup isn’t too hot. Genepro is only 1 tablespoon vs. some protein powders require 1/4 cup. It’s pricey but so worth it!

    I hope it all went well for you!! I know it’s hard at first but things only get better from here! Like others said walk walk and walk some more. It will help you get stronger and heal.

    November sleevers here

    I had my sleeve on 11/29. I’m down 24 lbs and onto a purée diet. I’m so glad to be off Full Fluids. I just went back to work today and feel great. I also hit the gym this morning at work. I haven’t been there since my pre op. I’ve been walking at home. The gals there stopped in their tracks and told me I looked amazing! They have no idea I had surgery. I didn’t share with a lot of people.

    Breaking some rules

    The cream soups made me so nauseous couldn’t do it. I’m have tomato tomorrow for sure.

    That actually sounds really good. I’ll have that for lunch.

    3 months Post Op .... Hair Loss

    Fish oil? The docs put me on that but I’m still fairly new and nothing has happened as of yet. But my thyroid makes mine fall out anyway.

    PostOp newbie

    Yes!!! I know it seems odd to celebrate a poop or fart but nice work!
  13. My own comfy clothes, iPad because the tv they have stinks, little samples of soaps I love, lotion, shampoo and conditioner. Anything that made me more comfortable. 10 foot charging cable for my phone. Mainly I slept and I got one shower but the RN commented how much she liked coming into my room because it smelled good and I have “Mean Girls” on.[emoji23]

    Genepro protein powder. It’s a tablespoon of powder for 30 grams of protein! I mix it into pudding, sugar free hot chocolate, water, crystal light, oatmeal. It’s unflavored. Works great! I got it on Amazon
