    I still stand by that the gas pain in the shoulder was the worst part of all of this!!!! It was horrible! Heating pad was the only thing that got me some relief!

    I’m 10 days post op today and I still randomly get the chest pains... sometimes I’ll take a gas x and that helps, but it does get better! One of the worst parts for me was the chest pains. Each day it gets a little better.... after exactly one week and day, I woke up feeling “normal” again! Still dealing with that darn head hunger and desire to chew. I have 3 kids, so I’m often making them and my husband dinner and it’s hard!!! I don’t feel hungry, but I’m missing food! One more week till purées... never would’ve thought i would be excited about that! 😂

    Yes the head hunger is awful!!! Gotta train our minds! I don’t really want the food, but it looks so dang appetizing and I just wanna chew! And I have 3 kids, so I’m always cooking for them or preparing them food!!! I’m a week and a day post op and today I woke up finally feeling like myself! Can’t believe I’m already a week out, it’s going fast!

    I’m almost one week post op and every day i feel more like myself! I’m def dealing with head hunger/urge to eat (chew!). But I know that’s mental! Really right now my hardest part is sleep, I am NOT a back sleeper and my back is killing me lately!!! Other then that, I’ve been trying hard to get all my liquids in, it’s hard!!!

    How’s everyone doing? I’m 4 days post op and starting to come around! Today i got out a bit, so that was good. Struggling with my protein and liquids!! Nothing tastes great. But I’m feeling a little better each day! No more nausea or dry heaving! Ready to get back to normal though— or my new normal!

    I brought a neck pillow— like one for flying and i think it really helped in the hospital! The beds are not so comfortable and it really made me a bit more comfortable there!

    Well it’s my first night home, 2:30am and I woke up super nauseous... and in pain. Gonna take the pain meds I have and try to go back to sleep. So much of my day is ok and then sporadically i will just feel horrible out of the blue.

    The hospital gave me a bag of them, I also ordered on amazon before I knew they were going to give me. Back home now, feels good to be back in my bed— less good to walk in exhausted to whiny kids! 😂 There was an error on my pain meds, dr wanted 150ml, but the script only said 15ml, so when my husband went to pick it up tonight it only had 15 ml— one dose in it! Dr can’t do anything else tonight, so i have to wait until tomorrow! Hopefully i just sleep and don’t feel any pain!!!

    Update: Nausea seems to be gone for now, pain is at a 2... they did finally give me some drugs which helped! Right now the gas pain in my shoulder is the worst part, it’s trapped up there and it makes laying down super uncomfortable!!! Other then that I feel ok right now!

    Glad to hear there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! My night in the hospital was ok, The chest pain has seemed subside now my incisions are becoming painful. I haven’t taken any strong painkillers so that’s good, just a lot of anti nausea meds. Sleeping, walking and ice chips seem to all help. Also, I randomly brought a neck pillow to the hospital (like the ones you use on an airplane) and it has been a lifesaver!!!! Highly recommend. Honestly my back hurts the worst from laying in this bed so much!!!

    Ok guys, surgery is done. Today has been ok overall, I’ve had a lot nausea and dry heaving (I have nothing in my system to throw up!!) every time I sit up or move. For me the worst part has been this insane pressure and tightness in my chest, they say it’s reflux but it’s so painful for me!!!!! When I sleep it goes away, so I’m heading to bed for the night at 6:35. Surgery itself was a breeze, I remember nothing. One day at a time!!!! Here’s to the new me!

    The day before surgery, is anyone else on a clear liquid diet? I’m missing my protein shake already today! Surgery tomorrow, I can’t believe it’s already here!!!!

    I’m struggling too. I’ve been eating protein and veggies in addition to shakes but feel like this last week I need to just cut out everything else and just do shakes! I’m nervous about something getting in the way of surgery, I’ve come this far for it to be cancelled or postponed!

    I’m on day 5 of my liquid diet and I called the dr because I’m really not liking all the shakes, it’s too much liquid! They said i can have one mean of lean protein and green vegetables. Today I had my second meal (yesterday was my first) and have my first headache!! Now I’m thinking maybe I need to go back to no food, but I’m not a fan of the shakes and 5-6 of them a day was WAY too much!!! I was chugging them so fast because i don’t like the taste/texture. Oh boy. Almost there... that’s what i keep telling myself, almost there.

    Anyone else starting pre op diet this week? I just picked up my stuff for my shakes— only allowed liquids for 2 weeks!!! Then surgery! This should be interesting... 😬. I’m starting Friday! Just did my UGI X-ray and bloodwork yesterday. Surgery is dec 7.

    Hi I’m new here, my surgery is scheduled for dec 7! I feel very overwhelmed at the moment— with all the prep and appointments I’ve been having just to get it all done! I know it’s the home stretch but it’s been a lot!! I go in between feelings of nervousness and excitment! Looking forward to chatting with you all!
