  1. I used the same shakes from GNC for pre-op and only used 2 scoops of powder at a time for 40 g and like 4.3 g carbs. I love the banana cream flavored and even froze it and ate it like ice cream for a change. I can't start back on my shakes until like Friday, I'm still on clear liquids, but I'm sure they'll still be there when I'm ready :scared2:

    Surgery done on March 12th, 2010 in Juarez MX, no real significant post-op problems. Absolutely NO appetite, not sure what I think about that! Drinking clear fluids and trying to make sure I don't get dehydrated. Jello, broth, and water are okay I guess. The doctor sent me home with antibiotics and Toradol for post-op and I found out that my band is Lapand VG system, which is the newest one I believe. I have the card and the box even it came in :wub: Anyways, fluoroscopy showed that I have reallly good restriction from the inflammation, that could attribute to no hunger whatsoever. So far so good, port is a bit sore, tired, and having to force myself to drink!!

    From what I hear, muscle milk is one of the tastier shakes, but I can't say because I haven't ever tried them. I know that they are a bit more carbs then I'd care to take in so I drink 0 carb isopure, which is horrible, but I mask it with coffee in the morning. I drink GNC WHEYBOLIC EXTREME banana cream with only 4.3 carbs and 40 protein for lunch or supper, depending on what time I have a meal. I really like the banana cream flavor a lot, and I blend it in the magic bullet with ice and it seems a bit more palatable like that.

    GREAT!!!! I was hoping that you'd find a solution, you were so close to getting it done and I hated to see you being held back because of money issues!!! I'm so excited for you, I bet you feel relieved!
