Just packed my bag for the hospital. I have to be at the hospital at 8am, so glad that it is so early. This clear liquid diet is a killer and I was afraid I would be waiting around till the afternoon. I was really nervous but I just got off the phone with a friend that I don't see very often, she said "the next time we get together you'll be a skinny Minnie" .... Just the thought of that being a possibility made me very excited!! Still so glad I found this forum a few Weeks ago, I,have learned so much and knew exactly what to put in my hospital bag!!

Thanks everyone!!! I'm hoping the clear fluids post op is a little easier and I am not completely famished. Someone on here posted that after surgery she had to wait 33 hours after surgery before even getting a sip of Water due to a delay in her leak test. So, I am preparing myself for the worst but hoping for the best =)

I too had to wait to have any liquids. Ask for ice and swabs, but don't drink it! Once you get through the dry mouth....swabbing often..... It's tolerable. Msome places have flavored swabs, my hospital did not or did not give them to me :)
