    kellym1220 got a reaction from WishMeSmaller in July 2020 Surgery anyone?   
    I'm back in the July surgery club! I was postponed due to Covid, but when I called them today to follow up, they said they could take me on THURSDAY!! So I am now doing a three day CRASH liquid diet vs. the two week liquid diet originally required (I made sure they knew I had eaten food this weekend!) I am soooo excited!!

    Oh...my muscle is pretty limited (and kind of soft and squishy LOL) so I won't have that trouble!

    So now, I am scheduled for THIS Thursday, I told them I ate last weekend and they said, just be very strict until Thursday!! So nothing but Protein Shakes and Water until surgery day!! So thankfully, only a three day all liquid diet (vs. two weeks the doctor's orders were!)

    Dear New and Improved,
    When you have been a 5’ 2 “ female - who is 64 years old - I and other will take your opinion more seriously. Have you ever had a hysterectomy ? Had to make the choices between adding Synthetic hormones that might help balance Weight gain and loss against a high risk of breast cancer ? Have you given birth to a child ? Or two ? Or had degenerative disease ? Or just been over 50 ? I hope that you remain healthy and never have to deal with medical issues. But growing older is not for the faint of heart. Another good thing about being long lived is the ability to know when to be insulted and when to just be amused. I remain the later

    Good luck to everyone! I will still be following your journeys and hoping for the return of elective surgeries, and testing some of the maintenance recipes to continue a low carb, low fat diet, until I can get rescheduled. I think this is truly the best decision...I am a bit of a wimp, so if things did NOT go well, I wouldn't want to be around me!! Take care and keep posting!!

    I think god is telling me it's not my time. Last night, my daughter (24) who would be my primary caregiver, chauffer, etc was lighting the grill and it blew up and gave her second degree burns on her hands and burned her hair (honestly I think she feels worse about that!) We called 911 and she spent the night in the hospital. I know she will be fine, just not sure she's up to caring for me in 7 days. I called and told them I will be available as soon as the hospital's re-open/ Meanwhile, off the liquid dirt and back on low carb!

    Honestly, I think you made the right decision. Everyone's case is different and you could very well do absolutely fine! I had quite a bit of nausea and pain for the first 18+ hours. You may do absolutely amazing with minimal, even no pain or nausea! But, why take that chance? I will be praying that things will open up very soon and you will be able to have an uneventful surgery!! Also praying for your daughter's recovery!!

    I actually have been weening myself off of caffeine...I have 3 pods every morning and cut back to two caf, one Decaf and now I'm at two decaf, one caf and next week, no caf at all. But Premier Protein makes an awesome coffee creamer substitute! Good luck!!

    Thanks for all of the information! I'm getting a gastric sleeve on 8/17. I am learning so much, pre-op, post-op and what to bring to the hospital. I need to find some comfy pajamas and a body pillow! I will definitely prep the SF Jello and Protein shots...I ordered the little cups for them today. I am a researcher and planner (although it's usually cruises and vacations...not surgery!) so I want to read and know everything. Good luck everyone!!

    Hi gang. Making an attempt to check in again. First let me say I know that I’ve had a rougher time than most so if you’re reading mine and it concerns you don’t think that my experience is the normal. I still find getting on electronics makes me queasy and I’m thinking that’s because of all the meds I received in the hospital. So I’m dictating this on my phone please forgive the grammatical errors and wrong words.
