Does anyone going to See Dr. Aceves know if there are any stores within walking distance from the hospital?

I am here in El Centro California just waiting for the pickup on Sunday. Can't believe that it is almost time. I have completed my shopping except for those Protein samples that everyone is talking about. Will do that the day I leave the hospital. It should only take a couple of days to come. Looking forward to meeting everyone see you soon...........Teri

If I am remembering correctly, there is a drugstore/pharmacia close by, and some other places.

I only recall 2 drug stores - one right on the edge of the Hospital parking lot and one across the street from the hospital - I don't recall any other stores within walking distance from the hospital; however, if you ask Dr. Campose or Dr. Aceves, they can tell you for certain.

Beth, This is what I read on another thread:

1) For the first 10 days following surgery, nothing other than Clear liquids and a Protein supplement should be consumed. ABSOLUTELY no solid food!!! Clear Liquids consist of Jell-O, sugar-free Crystal light, Water, and broth. A high quality Protein supplement such as Isopure or whey protein should be used in order to obtain approximately 70 grams of protein per day."

But seems I read something different elsewhere, I'm gonna look. I remember reading something about day 1 through 5 being something, and then you could ad stuff after that.

Ok thanks! Thanks what I thought, I started drinking my Protein Shakes today to get used to them...I haven't had any in over a year, gosh I remember now how much I hated them when I had my lap band. I think i need to find a new brand, or maybe mix it up so I am not drinking the same one every day.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      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 .
