    I had two days of bowel prep, but mine was Golytely, not Magnesium Citrate. My stuff wasn't flavored nearly enough, even with the little flavor packet they gave me. Yesterday was awful. I did end up nauseous after 2 glasses (had to drink a 1/2 gallon of the stuff), and ended up popping one of the nausea pills I'd been subscribed. It worked, but nothing could help having to choke that stuff down. Took me almost 4 hours to get through the 1/2 gallon.
    Today was easier, though still horribly unpleasant. No nausea and I just powered through it to get the 1/2 gallon down in under 3 hours.
    Also have to be at the hospital for 5:30am tomorrow. Going to try to head to bed shortly, but not sure how much I'll sleep.
    You got through the worst part of it, though! It's a downhill run from here on out!

    @Tamwell Wishing you safe travels and a generally boring surgery/recovery! 😊
    @IWantTheDream I am right there with you too! Today is my last day of work. I have been working from home since Mid-March, so I can quarantine post-COVID test (yesterday) and still work. Started setting up auto reply on my emails yesterday and writing my hand-off email in my head. Surreal!

    Oh my gosh, I'm feeling the same way right now, this is my last day working and tomorrow I board the plane and have surgery the next day. So, my stomach is doing all sorts of things and this is minor compared to what my mind is doing. But we'll get through this, there is a reason for it and it's why we are all here.

    IWantTheDream reacted to brian10x in I actually prefer not to die   
    I've been trolling this forum for months, and its been a wealth of information.
    Things are starting to get real, as my insurance company says I will have a decision within 5 days. My doctor says they kinda have to say yes.
    On my surgeon's web page,it says he's done over 3000 procedures. Now, I'm a man that isn't scared of a whole lot. I race cars, shoot guns, wrestle grizzly bears for fun (well, two out of three ain't bad) and I usually just duct tape my wounds and walk it off.
    But I'm 59 and I am thinking about death a lot.
    What is my surgeon gets bored and falls asleep?
    I guess I should make a will. I don't want the state to get my dogs or my guns if I die. Or my collection of studded leather BDSM gear.

    2nd day of pre-op liquid diet. Boy does that exhaustion come from out of nowhere. The headache isn't helping either. Feels like dehydration, but I am downing Water like it's going out of style.

    Push thru.. by day 4 you will be feeling much better. You are probably dealing with some withdrawals from sugar or caffeine:) That was my worst day. Today is day 7- down almost 10lbs. Have good energy and finished all my preop testing this morning. Except COVID that’s Monday... you got this. I was allowed to take meds for the headache like Tylenol and allege but sure if you are but it did help.

    I'm having RNY on July 15th! Somehow the date seems so much closer on this side of July 1st 😮

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one freaking a bit out due to gaining 5-7 Corona pounds. I decided to start my liquid fast early as well and dropped about 11 lbs in a week. The past few days no change on the scale though. Hopefully it will pick up again so that I'll be sure to have a nice and shrunken liver 😅

    I was also down 10 in the first 6 days of the pre-op diet! Embarrassing confession...I made my husband hide the scale yesterday so I would stop obsessively weighing myself. I *might* have OCD. 😂

    Today is day six of the two week pre op diet and I a have to tell you I don’t think I have ever gone this long with out Peanut Butter! I am craving it so bad. Ice pops are definitely not Peanut Butter. I think if I see one more tv commercial about Reese’s peanut butter cups I may come unglued. I am waiting 15 minutes for my show to record a little bit so I can fast forward the commercials and then I will be in happy land for a little bit watching YELLOWSTONE. I loooove this show. I am Team Rip all the way! Lol. 8 more days to go. Hopefully they go fast! Hopefully everyone is doing good and managing there diets. Stay safe all! Good night!
