    July 2020 Surgery anyone?

    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!!
  2. Surgery (sleeve) was Monday, 7/6 and today I finally feel a little more human! I've battled headaches, nausea, soreness of course, and I can't sleep more than 2 hours at a time! I am still sore, especially up in my ribs! I'm also very tired and my energy is extremely low. I have a business I work from home but I don't even want to think about it right now! I'm so grateful to have this behind me and finally feel like I am actually on the road to recovery! I'm still on clear liquids until next week. Hopefully then my energy will pick up a bit!!

      Hang in there, Judy! I am suffering along with you from a distance. I am hoping that I am turning the corner today. I could really use a good night of sleep too. Cheers with sugar free jello! 😬

      Hi there! I had my surgery on 07/08 and feel the exact same way minus the nausea (thank God!). But my energy is low and hard to get a good night's sleep. Good luck on your journey!

    I have Nectar unflavored protein powder that I made some protein jello shots with! It has no taste at all! The jello is a little grainy but not so bad I can't eat it. I taste the flavor of the jello actually. Oh! Sugarfree jello that is. My surgery was the 6th and just now starting to feel a bit better. I pray you feel better soon as well!!

    On the advice of my dietician I am using Dimatize protein powder and it is honestly very good! I chose plain vanilla in case I didn't like it so I could add flavoring of some sort, but the vanilla tastes just like a vanilla shake! The next container I buy will be the cookies and cream flavor!
