    November Surgery Buddies!!!

    I'm still on a soft diet as well.. I only eat the fruit cup with no sugar added. They're very soft and easy to mash. I found out this weekend that I can no longer digest egg yolks. That is very sad bc I love hard boiled eggs. Technically I'm only supposed to have egg whites at this stage though.

    I am also in week 4 and experiencing the stall. I think I'm out of the ketosis also which is probably cause. I could definitely improve my water intake but I've also began eating fruit almost daily.

    Hey there. I was the 29th also. I'm having a hard time eating and drinking. Always concerned I'm going to do something wrong. The amount of mood swings makes me crazy too. I feel like a basket case bc I can't eat what I want and when I want.

    That's an amazing amount of loss! I fasted 24 hrs prior to surgery. I'm only taking my normal meds and vit c. I have been taking meds whole since surgery. I did have to change from Premier Protein to Fairlife Protein which made all the difference! It's so strange how every doctor has different pre/post op instructions.

    I experienced a small amount of this. Slept in my recliner. Stayed on top of alternating pain meds and Tylenol and wore a snug belly binder. That seemed to help out.

    Hi TJ! I was Nov 29th also! So happy to have my follow-up tomorrow! Woke up this morning feeling like my stomach (internal) is swollen. So far the worst pain has been psychological but I think I'm mostly past that. Didn't even realize how attached to food I was. Never in a million years would I have thought I'd breakdown for not having chips. I seriously thought I was losing it! Even through all the "buyer's remorse" I can see improvement! Just keep going!
