    I’m sorry that yesterday was tough. I hope today is a bit easier. On a side note, I think you are an excellent writer. You crack me up!
    Another person recommended a book and I just started it. It is very insightful and offers some good tips. You should read it. If nothing else, it’s a good destruction and reinforces the positive changes you are making during this Pre Op phase.
    Keep up the good work!

    This has been a rough week. I caught a virus and have been throwing up/ dry heaving all day Monday. I ended up in the ER where I was able to get two IV bags and some Phenergan. Yesterday, I was able to get about 50 oz of fluids down. This morning, I’m back at work and tried to get some Protein in. I don’t think my stomach is quite ready for it yet. The good news is that I’ve been able to keep Water down today. It’s hard to stay hydrated when you can only sip between bouts of nausea.
    Hopefully, things will get better from here

    I’m on puréed foods until 3/23. I’m having a hard time getting in Protein unless I drink a shake for every meal (and by then I’m too full to even think about anything else). I’m averaging about 400 calories each day. I’m doing okay with Vitamins and my energy level is good. I went back to work a week after surgery. I just struggle with finding puréed foods I can tolerate that have sufficient protein. Hoping the soft food phase will open up some options for me.

    Im so glad you’re doing well! I’m also happy to hear some positive recovery stories My surgery is Thursday. I’m not too nervous but it seems all I see lately are horrible stories about recovery. It’s refreshing to hear good stuff.

    Today is my Day 2. Today, has been harder than yesterday. I have a mild headache that won’t go away and I feel like I’m in some kind of brain fog. It’s hard to concentrate. I’m hoping tomorrow will be better.
    On a positive note, I tried some chicken bouillon Soup from BariLife and it was yummy. It was a nice break from the other clear Protein meals.

    Hi all, had my Gastric Bypass yesterday at 8:30 a.m. went really well. No pain except where the drain is (it will be taken out this morning before they release me). The hardest part was them trying to take blood for labs this morning) The best part, a healthier life to look forward to.
    Good luck to everyone already recovering this month and all of you that still awaiting your surgery.

    My doctor didn’t mention anything about Magnesium Citrate. I am on a clear liquid diet for 10 days prior to surgery. Does everyone do the Magnesium Citrate?

    I’m so very sorry. What a mess. I wish I could do something to fix it. But hey, it sounds like the sleep doctor might be able to write a note for you. Don’t give up yet. No matter how difficult this process is, you’re stronger. Just think, a year from now you will look back and think how all of this was worth it. Sometimes, the greatest adventures in life are those that are the most difficult in the beginning. You can do this!
    I am very sorry all this is happening. Feel free to vent anytime! We’re here for you!

    I’m so sorry. That stinks! Maybe, they’ll move the surgery up if anything.

    I think they are actually Popsicle brand LOL. I didn't know that was a brand. Maybe it's like the Kleenex/Crockpot phenomenon. They have two sugar-free boxes, one is regular flavors (cherry, grape, orange) and one is tropical flavors (pineapple, "tropical" orange lol, and fruit punch). I like the regular flavors the best - taste like childhood!

    Stats for yesterday: 855 calories, 92g Protein.
    Stats for today: 910 calories, 94g protein.
    Feeling extremely nauseated for the last couple of hours. It started right after I had my "last" Protein Shake at 11:30pm - I say "last" because once I started feeling sick I chased it with a Premier Protein premade (unfortunately non-vegan) shake to see if that would help the nausea. It did for a bit but now it's back. Have had around 16 oz of Water since then with no relief from the nausea.
    Could be from the weird temperature of the protein shake (mixed it with warm broth but took awhile to drink it so it was kinda lukewarm and gaggy toward the end), could be coincidence, could be from the 36+ hour headache I've got going, could be anything really. I remembered I had some dramamine in my purse so I took one of those and I'm going to eat a couple sugar-free popsicles to give my belly something small to do.
    Still not much hunger - hardly any hunger today. If I hadn't had that Premier Protein shake & these popsicles, I would have only been at 720 cals for the day. Brain fog is worse, moods are more stable but generally lower than yesterday (had some good highs yesterday that upped the average lol). I enjoyed talking with my therapist but unfortunately she's not available 24/7 for the next 12 days. Can't imagine why not!
    I've gotten lots of good support from my 2/15 RNY buddies @TexasGal40 & Misty (I can't recall your exact username, Misty, sorry!) as well as my non-WLS friends and my mom. My husband has been a bit less supportive, not on purpose, I just think he's mystified and doesn't understand what I need. I'm usually excellent at telling him what I need - but as I said 100x to my therapist today, this just sucks and there's nothing to do about it. (He's also forgotten about the liquid diet a couple times... the ultimate betrayal when it's consuming my life LOL.) I've tried distractions but I'm not interested in anything. Netflix, reading, YouTube, even BP (sorry you guys, I still love you!), none of it is really holding my attention.
    In better news, I was watching some of Dr. Weiner's videos earlier today and commented on one about the pre-op diet. He replied and told me good luck on my surgery! *swoon* Celebrity status, y'all! Now if only I can get a shout-out from Dr. Greger and Dr. Barnard, I'll be set for life! LOL
