    My hair loss started this week as well. I don't always get my protein and vitamins in but most days I do. Hopefully it won't last long.

    10/23 here...no pain meds since first day and doing well. I am really looking forward to purée which I can’t start until Tuesday. At my one week appointment I was 16 lbs down since surgery. BTW I was too afraid to take pain meds thinking I may throw up so I could have used some for a few days but just didn’t do it. Congrats on doing well and getting off meds! Being healthier is the true goal!

    Left shoulder pain is from the hernia repair. My surgeon warned me about this several times. I have not had an issue with it. I do still have gas pains and just hoping it will work itself out soon.

    Had surgery Tuesday the 23rd...still have discomfort on my left side. I am getting some liquids in. Just wishing this next month would go by quick so I can actually eat something.

    Surgery date is the 23rd...two days and I am beyond nervous! Thanks to all that have been posting updates. At this point I just worry that I will never get to eat again...I know it sounds silly but after a week on liquids I am starving and I just want a piece of pizza.

    My surgery has been moved from 10/9 to 10/23. Started the liquid diet for a day and a half when I found out it was moved. Just another hurdle but it will be okay!

    I am scheduled for surgery on October 9th! I am beyond nervous and excited at the same time. I will only be off from work for one week so I am a little nervous on how my return to work will go. I start pre-op liquid diet on Tuesday. I look forward to hearing from everyone as they start this new life. Good luck to you all!
