  1. Hey guys! So I finished the phase of full liquid and am now in the pureed protein phase. Looking for some recipe/food ideas. I’m basically still just having protein drinks, yogurt, soup and hummus. It’s just kinda boring lol. Thanks for the help!:)
  2. Hey all! I just had surgery on Wednesday. Surgeon said everything went great. I find now, on day 5, I’m out of breath and lightheaded. Also the cramping is still so painful. Any tips or recommendations??
  3. Thank you so much! Better to be frightened than dead😂
  4. Thank you all so much for your support! I went to the emergency room and they said the shortness of breath was actually just pain from the tube being down my throat during surgery, thank god! Got some morphine and resting now. Thank you all so much❤️❤️

    Pre-op cheating??

    You guys are so empathetic and kind- it is so heartwarming and encouraging! I definitely have better options to deal with low blood sugars and keep them on hand always. I think the combo of low blood sugar, and hunger and parental fatigue had me go nuts a little😂😂😂
  6. I’m on day 10 of 14 for the pre-op Optifast stage. I’m type 1 diabetic and woke up the other day low and confused and tore into a pack of wafers. I’ve also ‘cheated’ a few days with decalf coffee with almond milk or skim milk. The days I did, I had one shake less. Has anyone actually had their surgery cancelled for not following the pre-op strictly??
