For someone that's leaving, you sure do post a lot. Either leave or don't - no one is going to beg you to stay here when you're as rude as you have been.

yes. I think you were extremely rude and unhelpful. Just because you have the account, doesn't mean you have to use it.

No, Anderson, I have not turned nasty to you. I am stating the facts as I see them. If I were nasty, I would have said something negative about you. I didn't do that; I simply didn't agree with everything you said. One thing I learned in counseling is that "We can disagree and still be friends".

After your posts that I took to imply you thought the surgery patient was lying, I looked her up to see if she had ever posted before and she has. Her posts have been about various things, so I'm inclined to believe that she is posting her personal experience.

There are other forums out there besides this one that are just as good. I have been using a second one and do not have issues like this one.

Dont let the door hit you where there Good Lord split you.

Mr. Anderson seems to have multiple personalities and I have FIRST-HAND experience with that.

Unlike people like YOU, I am here to support and be supported and not to boss people around and be rude.

Gotta love the BLOCK USER tool. :)

This is just a suggestion when replying to someone elses post. Just possibly when replying to someones post you could just respond to the post. Some feel the need to "quote" others posts to make their post seem more important. Each and every person who posts in this forum is entitled to their own opinion without others picking it apart. It is theirs and not yours so try and be considerate of others.

Post you own thoughts and leave the others opinions alone.

How does using the quote feature make another's post seem more important? It clarifies the exact thought that is being referenced. It makes for more clarity.

If you don't like it, don't use it. Or perhaps ask what it is for instead of incorrectly assuming?

This whole entire thread makes no sense at all.

People use the quote feature so that they can refer back to what they are posting about.

Hi everyone. Let's remember we're all human and we all make mistakes. Sometimes I think my posts can seem kind of harsh when I re-read them. I never mean to be rude, but can come across that way when I'm in a hurry. I think that can happen to every one of us.

I do quote others from time to time but that's because I want people to be certain what I'm replying to. We're all here for the same reason (I think)... we want support in our journey. So let's lift each other up instead of tear each other down. There are plenty of other people out there in this world willing to tear us down.

Love y'all!!

I think quoting someone in particular is actually a really effective way of getting a point across to the individual you are referencing. Sometimes when a thread is extremely long and I say something but don't quote who I'm talking to, its always a sure thing that the last person to post before me will think I'm talking to them... true story.

:wink1:

In the interest of protecting everyone from potential harm, I just wanted to let everyone know that andersonlj is back. His new handle is IowaAndy.

Irene, on other forums, when you ban someone, you can block their IP. Is that not possible here?

He responded to my inquiry with a nasty private message from this post. I guess he didn't like that I recognized him after his rant about what a terrible site VST was and how there were much better support sites out there. Yet, he is back.

Just be careful, y'all. I can handle his poison, but others may not.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.
