    How do you have your coffee?

    I use Premier Protein! I prefer the caramel or the cookies and cream.

    July 2019 Surgery Siblings Post-Op

    I’m on day 4! Learning how to deal with this new stomach. The only problem I have so far is dealing with pain from the incision that my stomach was pulled out of. I also made a “smoothie” earlier with whipped peanut butter, that was a big no. My stomach let me know right away. Other than that, I’m just sipping along 🤗 Hope everyone else is doing good!!!
  7. I’m with y’all, but mine is my left side. I was also worried about not pooing, but now I’ve gone three times. I’m starting to worry a little.

    Do you know your bougie size?

    My dr uses a 38F, I think he does that with every one.

    Liquid question

    I keep thinking something is wrong with me because I can drink faster. The first two days, I couldn’t. Now I can. I broke it, my sleeve is broken...🤦🏼‍♀️🤣 but seriously, should I count my blessings or be worried?

    Sore after surgery

    The only pain have is where he pulled my stomach out. It is so sore and tender! I’m going to ask how big it was and did he pull anything else out 🤣 I also have the gas pains in my chest. Those are getting better.
  12. I just had surgery yesterday and the spot where he pulled my stomach out, HURTS!!! I feel like there are muscles ripping and flying everywhere when I try to stand up. I want to lay on my stomach so bad 😣

    Post op

    I’m day two as well!! And had a hernia repaired!!! The only pain I have is the spot where he pulled my stomach out. I have felt sick at all. The weirdest thing is, my stomach will start growl and feel hungry, then it stops. I’m not hungry at all right know, but I want to chug a cold bottle of water 🤣 Hope your recovery is speedy!!

    Pre-op and obsessed?

    I’m the same way. I have been obsessed since I started thinking about it last year.
  18. I think the sodium has messed me up. I haven’t lost as much as I thought I would have. My surgery is tomorrow 😳 I’m so nervous!!

    2 week pre-op liquid diet

    I’m drinking two Premier Protein shakes and then eating the things that I got from him that I like. I’m not straying too far off. It’s around 800 calories, low carb, and low fat. I’ve lost 4 lbs since Tuesday.

    2 week pre-op liquid diet

    My dr sells us a diet and it is awful. I talked to a friend of mine who went to the same dr and she modified it a little, so I have too. I have been doing it since Tuesday. I messed up last night and am beating myself up right now. I have 9 days until my surgery. I am about to be so hard core. I have wanting this for so long and I am not going to get in my own way like I have for so many years.
