In Preparation For Post Surgery



Recommended Posts

I've been trying to make little changes. Little over three weeks without having a coke. That is a big one for me!!!! I'm very proud of myself for that!!!

Trying to chew food 30 times is very difficult. I find the food after about 15 chews just goes to the back of my throat and I can't help but swallow. The no drinking during a meal is killing me.

Maybe my bites are still too big and that is making hard, I don't know.

I don't typically use a straw so I'm not too worried about that but I still Don't see why once we are healed we can't use it.

Hi,

I think of the size spoon I used before maybe 4 years ago, I had always eaten from the largest spoon I could find just short of a serving one, I gave that up, but had one or another in my ktchen drawer for years and nobody did quite see it always when I used it. I was put off by the idea of baby utensils and have yet to try that one out but I'll have to do something just to be sure. I am thinking and may get some to seperate/cut the food into bite size portions before I put them in my mouth. It seems People also may just get slower because the lesser apetite and discomfort helps them to and you will get used to it. Keep thinking it and then it will become the thing to do.

It is getting close, December 10!

So excited and so nervous. Last night I said to my husband I don't know if I can do this. He in a nut shell said after all I have been through the last three months I'm not backing out now lol.

Thanks for the help!

Have you been sleeved?

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
