My surgery is next Monday. Other than the stock stuff I was told to get (Protein powder, low-fat broth, Snickers bars, and SF jello), are there any other suggestions to be offered? I want to get stocked up before I go in so I do not have to worry about going out. And not just food. Any creature comforts I should consider? I have the belly dancers planned for my arrival back home on Wednesday.

Smile, people. Life is good!:001_tongue:

If I were you, I would double up on the snickers bars and go for a stripper in lieu of a belly dancer, oh and get some sf popsicles

Definitely SF popsicles - the crystal lite ones are awesome. The belly dancers may actually cause you symptomatic pain in your belly, so perhaps the stripper would be the better bet. You might want to get some dark chocolate M&Ms - you can suck on them and dark chocolate is good for you.

Bearded says go for the stripper too - much more fun than the belly dancers.

Definitely SF popsicles...I would also say some tea( ex. peppermint/chamomille...etc... I never heard of snicker bars, what are they for? I had sx on 8/27, but this is my first time hearing about snickers bars.....I would also be sure to have a heating pad and gas x strips handy because you may experience some major gas pains :-(

Sorry, I did not realize the original post date. I guess I'm late.

I just came across this. M&M's really? candy? Is that really a good choice after having the sleeve with the sugar and all?

I'm only 5 days out - drinking Clear liquids and truly feel hungry. I feel like I need to have some substance - not sure I can last 2 more days for full- liquid stage.

My starting BMI was lower - 32.6 (185 lbs) - only 178.5 now...but I understand lower BMIs lose slower.

Hoping I can hold on.

Hi Coco

I was sleeved on the 19th and am on full liquids - my doc only kept me on Clear Liquids until I could tolerate them very well - then let me try one ounce of full liquid and see if it went well. It did and I moved to full liquid.

BTW - had my favorite food since the surgery tonight - my hubbie took one can of cream of potato Soup and made it with fortified nonfat milk, added 2 T of grated cheese and melted it into it and added 1/4 tsp of liquid smoke (to taste like it had bacon in it without the bacon or fat) then strained it. I had 2 oz of Soup for dinner tonight. Took an hour to eat - 1 oz in each 1/2 hr and it was wonderful! :thumbup:

Good luck!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
