So how did it go Nean4488? Your surgery was yesterday. Was it uneventful?

Mine was monday... it went really well. The only problem was I couldnt pee before surgery... hello they tell you not to drink after midnight and then I pee when i wake up.. there wasnt much going on after that... so after about 45 min of trying they had my sign something that said I wasnt pregnant and there was no possible way I could be.

I was there from 6-11am.. I am so glad i didnt have to stay the night, I was ready to get out of there, when i woke up they told me to take a nap, i laughed and made myself stay up, i was ready to go home!

I was having a lot of shoulder pain, it was really bad, it had me crying. It pretty much went away though, right now theres a consent pain in my shoulder and im not sure if its because of gas or its because I lay on it at night.

I dont need my pain meds, although i do take tylenol at night so I get a better night sleep. My port is a bit troublesome. It feels like its ripping everything inside my stomach! blah.... I just hope that goes away soon. When i sneeze, cough, or laugh, omg pain pain pain! Other then that everything is going great! Not hungry at all though, having to force myself to eat and drink and when i do my stomach feels like its going to explode.

Ok- so today has been extra hard. I'm on my last day of mushies… and starving.

( I have braces and got them tightened yesterday… that does not help)

I've been having tons of Protein but still nada. Still hungry! What the heck is going on. I know I hvnt had a fill but still I shouldn’t be this hungry. I get full pretty quickly but an hour later I'm hungry again.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I start reg foods tomorrow. I'm hoping that I will be able to stay fuller longer. I know I'm only supposed to be eating 3 times a day. But man this week has been so hard. Mushies was a horrible stage for me :w00t:

I'm going to GNC to weigh myself tonight. I like to go there because they give me a print out of my weight and BMI. I like to keep them for my records :wink:

But I need suggestions seriously.

I guess I know what they're talking about when I read on threads about BANDER HELL! I hope I'm not a permanent resident here:eek:

The port will become less sensitive and the pain in the shoulder and the surgical soreness will go away with mobility. It worked for me. If you shoulder is hurting, there is gas that is still trapped. It's common but I didn't have it on this surgery. Other surgeries have been awful though. Good luck and move around as you can. Chat soon. Mikissa

I wasn't told to do a liquid diet or anything before surgery. My surgery is on Monday. I wonder why??

Some Dr.s don't have you do it. The reason behind the pre op diet is to make the liver shrink. This makes it shrink about 25%. Some Dr's. have gotten away from the diet these days. Be glad if yours is one of them. I know you probably feel lost listening to everybody whine about it on here. Ha ha ha

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
