  1. If you are scheduled for surgery in March, start sharing those dates. Make some friends with people who are having surgery on the same day
  2. I am scheduled for February 18th. I will be first in. Wow, this process takes forever.

    You can look at it that way. But what if you do not lose the weight. It could lead to heart attack or other health issues if we continued going down the same road. I do agree that it is a huge change mentally and physically. I am 40 years old. We have eaten one way for so long and now we have to do it another way.

    Has anyone recognized their temperament has changed. I tend t be bothered easier or might make a snappy comment. I cannot say that I miss food that much, but if feels like the adjustment from 40 years of eating can be challenging.

    Med28thmed. I am doing fairly well. I have been back to work for two weeks now. I just moved from purées to moist meats and an egg. All of my incisions have healed but one. I am down down 19 since surgery. I ordered a food scale to weigh the meat. My eyes cannot completely estimate how much is there.

    I just ordered a food scale to help prevent over eating. My eyes are way bigger than my stomach. I felt so bad because I ate a bit to much. I am learning that when I start to burp a little that I should probably stop. Recidivist you should try ricotta bake. Its yummy. This last week I dropped 4.5 pounds. I think I will continue do protein drink each day.

    Emz, last night was the first night I had a problem with this. I am still trying to get used my signs of when my stomach is full. I accidentally over ate and I got some foamy and spit up the applesauce I ate with it

    Has anyone else’s surgeon sent samples taken during surgery to pathology. I was unaware they were going to do this. Just wondering if it is normal

    I was feeling bloated and could not take in that much. I took some Gas-x and that started to help and my intake of protein and water doubled. Each person is different

    Gabybab. Yes. Nutritionist said prior to surgery that the first 4 days should be clear protein. However the hospital had me on protein shakes. Sugar free popsicles and fudgicles

    Advice to those having surgery this week. Don’t rush to get on and post the first day of surgery. Sleep the say away. We will be here the next day

    Question. I have tried chicken bone broth and did not care for it. I am in my first two weeks. Could I strain chicken noodle soup and strain the noodles and chicken from it
