    Diet soda

    No, I've also given up all carbonated drinks. I haven't had a beer or soda in about 10 months. Honestly I really don't miss them.

    High fats

    I can tolerate mayo and butter in small amounts. The transition to solid foods was pretty seamless for me. I only threw up once when I ate one to many chicken wings.

    Constant heartburn

    I was prescribed omeprazole by my doctor and it looks like it's going to be a "rest of my life" thing.

    What can I eat

    I ate eggs everyday at that point. Scrambled, Hard boiled, omelets, etc. A great source of protein.

    I had decaffeinated in the hospital the day after surgery. I started having one small (8 ounce) cup of regular coffee in the mornings about two weeks out with a splash of sugar free creamer and a pack of Splenda. I'm now 7+ months out now and drink two small cups every morning. I also have the Cafe Latte flavor Premier Protein shake for breakfast most mornings and that also has caffeine in it. I was an crazy coffee drinker before the surgery. Usually 40-60 ounces a day. What I was told is Coffee is a diuretic and right after surgery you can get dehydrated easily. I was just very careful to get enough H2O.
  8. I also have Blue cross PPO and they only required three months where I filled out: How I was exercising, What I ate and how much weight I lost. Then I had to have my doctor sign it. Of course that's on top about 10 different test.

    Protein Shakes

    They are my favorite too. I order mine on costco.com. I think they have them at wallmart.com too.

    Feeling weak/rubber legs

    I agree it's your H2O. I use EnduroPacks Liquid Electrolytes spray in my H2O. I was getting bad leg cramps at night when I was first out of surgery. This knocked them out. It's a small bottle and you put 10 squirts in your water. Good stuff. You can get it on Amazon.
