You'll do find. By the time you read this you will be in recovery and have your room, so..

I had to report for mine 7 AM (getting up at 5 AM after fasting the previous 24 hours was ...new). In the hospital surgical waiting room they had to put up signs reminding patient's family members that everyone in the room has not eaten, resist the urge to bring in that Macdonald's Egg McMuffin (I would have added that, they might get attacked).

The surgery went smoothly, but I had 3 roommates in my 4 day stay. The Hosp. didn't have a family or day room ready. The first night as I am chewing ice chips, my roomate's (in with leg injury) family brings in pizza. The second day they bring in subs AND pizza for lunch. I don't usually wish anything bad on anyone but, after lunch he bought lunch (and a little part of dinner) up... I guess prayer DOES work... :unsure:

Good luck....I discovered some new words when the nurses came to get me to walk within hours of the surgery...you probably will also.... it's just 'part of the healing process'. :D

hey actnup

wow, surgery is over, and you are still around to listen to us talk about it. Really not taking this lightly, this has been a scary venture, i don't know if you ever had surgery before so this could have been extra difficult. This is quite an undertaking, but a great step towards happiness but more importantly good health.

this is a very hard yet bold step you took. i don't think "observers", family and friends realize what a big step forward this is, what a hard decision you made, your new eating situations that will lead you to a new and healthier and happier you.

so, try and shed your tears - you might hit some little bumps in the road, but remember - you'll get over that big hump (hope i said that right!)

good luck with your journey ahead

best wishes

kathy

That sounds like it was difficult. I had a room with four people but at least they were all Bari patients with the same Protein drink lol

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
