    I also bought six bottles. They are vile. And, they create a film on my tongue. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to stomach them after surgery since I can only drink so little at a time.

    I get the sleeve on July 8th. I am self pay, so hearing about all the delays and timelines you all have to follow is crazy! I also teach, so July is ok. I was hoping for the end of June, but here we are! Good luck to everyone!!

    I am in the same position. My husband and kids know. My boss also knows, but she won't say anything. I teach too, so I can imagine there will be speculation...but I don't feel like it's anyone's business, unless I choose to tell them!

    jennj got a reaction from ARMoma45 in Pre-op diet question   
    My surgery isn't until July 8. Two weeks ago, I started by drinking a Protein Shake for Breakfast. Last week, I drank one for breakfast and one for lunch. Next week, I will move to total liquids. I have gotten to the point where I am not hungry during the day at all. I "think" it won't be too terrible transitioning to all liquids because I've been preparing myself. Of course, that's what I think BEFORE I've done it! Who knows. I'm a little nervous, too.

    jennj got a reaction from FluffyChix in How many carbs?   
    So each shake should have no more than 5g of sugar? Darn! mine has 9g. I guess it's back to soy isolate for me.

    I got an unflavored soy isolate, mixed it with Water and crystal light. It’s not wonderful, but my stomach can tolerate it. Only 20g of Protein per serving, but at least I can stomach it.

    jennj got a reaction from ARMoma45 in protein shakes make me puke   
    My surgery is July 8. I just started trying to drink a Protein Shake a day, just to help with the transition. The first day, I drank a full shake and subsequently threw it up. Today, I drank half a shake, felt like throwing up, but I didn't. I have tried Premier shakes (bananas and cream and caramel). Any suggestions on what to try? I'm getting nervous that all shakes will make me sick.
