Has anyone tried the Vita-max liquid Multi-Vitamin? I just can not get the pill down even if I cut it in half.

I bought it before my surgery and could not get past the smell. Disgusting !

I too feel very hungry. I am on the puréed foods. I'm wondering if the amount of hunger depends on the size of our pouches...

I felt hungry all the time while I was on pureed foods and full liguids.Now that I am on soft food and able to chew I fill up and stay full easily. I honestly thought I did not have my stomach really sleeved, that the doctor had not done enough of a stomach pouch removal. Now I know it is for sure. I get full fast and I stay full longer.

Thank you sooooo much for sharing that!! I was really starting to think the sleeve wasn't going to work, that the doctor hadn't removed enough of the pouch- or that i had stretched it out- very comforting to hear that- i am in the pureed stage right now- hoping to move to soft foods next week :)

I too was sleeved Aug 12 and including preop have lost 30lbs. Just wondering if you are really weak. Sometimes it's even difficult to hold a blow dryer!

I was sleeved August 22 and yes I feel week now too. I was ok for the first 3 weeks this last week and a half I have been feeling run down. I drink my Protein since I still have trouble eating the Protein. But I think I'm not getting enough Water. Yet I drink all day.

I was sleeved on 8/12/13. I'm happy with the weight loss, but experience nausea most of the day. Any ideas what I can do or what may be happening? I also have diarrhea -- this started when I began the pre-op clear liquid diet and still continues. I'm 5 weeks post op now. Help!

The nausea is a bit concerning. Have you spoken to your surgeon? I was sent home with Zofran and took it the first week, I have no idea if I needed it but I wasn't about to find out. Besides a bad Vitamin incident I've never been nauseous.

I am nauseous every time after I eat. I put a very small portion in a very small bowl and eat slowly but still feel nauseous and have to lay down.

Oh and I feel hungry as well. To those that posted earlier.

      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.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
