  1. I haven't had surgery yet but when talking with my surgeon they originally suggested 2 weeks and 7 days off of work minimum. I explained that I work from work and am not on phones or required to be at my computer at all times leaving me freedom to get up walk around, drink, etc... They seemed to be ok with that but still emphasized how important it is to take time off work to get accustomed to the new you and rest.

    start stocking up on Protein powders like Premeir Protein. You will go through a lot of that between pre op diet and after surgery. I would also stock up on Bone Broth for sipping that first couple weeks after surgery. It goes down nice and has protein in it. A nice break from plain Water.

    What is the best Protein Powder? I have been having some difficulty finding affordable protein that is gluten free/ dairy free.
