  1. I sip one throughout the day at work to try to help hit my protein goal. So I guess I use them as a snack.

    CHEWABLE MULTIVITAMINS???

    Can you maybe get them on Amazon? I have a friend in Luxembourg and I'm able to send him things from Amazon all the time. Not sure if that's an option for you. Good Luck! I know the vitamins are a pain some days!!
  3. I am really dreading this process because my hair has been very thin for a very long time - although I'm wondering if this is because of my other underlying health issues because when I was younger my hair was really thick. I think that I will have to go for a pixi hair cut once this starts but my nut already warned me that this would occur and when it started would last for about 2 months.

    CHEWABLE MULTIVITAMINS???

    I've heard a few people say they are taking vitamins that taste terrible and stink. Are you able to see if you can switch to Flinstones or Centrum? That has to be super hard to keep up the vitamin regimen eating something like that!!
  5. I've heard that eggs are kinda hard for most people at first (weird b/c they are pretty soft I know) but I'm a little farther out now - a month today and I too find that ground beef goes down the best and to me that's great because it has a lot of protein! I'm glad that you found some foods that you can eat without getting sick!

    Hi Everyone! Seems like everyone is doing really good for the most part. I feel a little frustrated that the weight came off SO FAST in the beginning but is starting to come off a lot slower - but slow and steady wins the race I guess! I'm having a hard time with fluid intake. It's more uncomfortable drinking stuff than it is eating..I find that ground beef goes down the best so I've been doing lots of ground beef and hamburger patties and just chewing chewing chewing! Also eating lots of greek yogurt these days and cheese. I love coming in here and reading everyone's progress. Keep it up everyone, we got this!

    CHEWABLE MULTIVITAMINS???

    I am taking flinstones vitamins 2x a day, b12 once a day, and viactiv 2x a day...I was given these on a list of approved chewable vitamins that I could start.

    I am experiencing the same thing. Drinking actually hurts worse than pureed stuff. So hard fitting it all in!

    Just checking in to see if anybody has transitioned to soft foods/pureed foods yet? I was cleared yesterday to start them..
  10. I am 16 days post off and on soft foods now. Cottage cheese and Greek yogurt have been working well. I tried some eggs with feta cheese and refried beans and I feel like those kind of hurt digesting in my stomach, although I'm back at work now walking a mile to and from train so maybe the increased activity is causing the uncomfortableness but idk. Anybody else feel painful in the lower belly area when transitioning to soft foods?

    I’m about a week out. Surgery date 9/18. Im so tired of protein shakes and sweet crap. I need more savory things to keep me full. I feel like I’m going crazy. It’s hard to choke the protein shakes down now but if I don’t I start dry heaving from empty stomach. Anyone struggling with the same thing?

    I am new here but surgery date is 9/18. Two days into my liquid diet and it’s a little rough right now but keep telling myself to hang in there.
