    Hello everyone

    I am in the exact same boat. I am not eating enough and definitely not getting enough protein. I know it sounds gross, but I made chili for my family and blended some for me. It was really good and I had no issues eating it at 26 days post op.

    Mine is definitely an allergic reaction to something....just keeping clean and dry and ice packs work best for itchiness Same here. We have to just give our bodies some grace. It probably is in shock and thinks it is starving. We just have to stay away from sugar and be patient. It will come off!

    I had my surgery Jan 18. I am feeling great except for the unbearable itchiness! I have been using ice packs. Added in a Claritin this morning. I know it is a normal part of the healing process, but I can hardly stand it. Anyone found any way to relieve it?

    Yes. By day 6 you aren't hungry anymore. I have even been making meals for my 6 year old. The food looks good, and I want it, but I am not hungry. So hang in there!

    Cleaning up the house, trying to get things in order before I head to the city 2.5 hours away where I will have the surgery Tuesday morning. Excited, scared, all around nervous, ready to have it done. I will be staying in the city until Saturday to rest up before someone drives me home. Any tips on what I should pack? Thanks Kristen

    I am super nauseated. Did you end up taking something?

    Jan 18th here and it's my first one as well. I think we will look back on it as a good decision

    That is wonderful! Why are you being postponed? Covid?

    Wondering how you are doing following surgery? I'm nervous of the pain and dehydration as well. I am only on day 4 of my 8 day pre op diet and I am extremely nauseous from the protein shakes. I just keep telling myself that I am going to feel so much better once I lose this 100 lbs that is putting so much pressure on my body and mind. I have been through hard things before. This is going to be a big commitment, but I am doing this for myself.

    After you early Jan patients get your stomachs transformed (congratulations!!!!) And are feeling strong enough, I'd love to hear your recommendations for what I should have on hand for my first week at home.
  22. Thank you. That helps
  23. This is good info. I know my hormones play a huge role in my weight even now. I have an unrelated question, if you don't mind me asking, when were you able to drive?
  24. That's scary! Glad you're feeling better
  25. Hi there. Hope you are feeling well! How are the protein shots treating you? What is the brand name please?
