Finally got my surgery date! August 17th



Recommended Posts

Well guys the date is fast approaching! It's my last day at work, trying to get everything ready while I'm out. I'm not worried - I work in a great office and I have several people who will be watching my desk while I'm out. This weekend I'm stocking up some things to have food wise when I get home on Tuesday....greek yogurt, Jello, SF popsicles, and broth! BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE!

It's my last day at work as well. Tomorrow I am making my trip to the store to stock up. Packing tomorrow night and since my surgery is about 5-6 hours away from home it's off to my hotel Sunday.

So what are your hospital necessities you are taking. I will be there 2 days and don't want to forget anything. I have a list made, just trying to drill it into my head before I go to the store haha.

TXTinana - I'm bringing my cell phone, IPAD, chargers, lip balm, brush, pony tail ties, face wipes (the cosmetic kind :) a pillow, and one of my softest throw blankets. Oh and my toothbrush! I don't think I'm going to need much else, I'm only there one night and whatever toiletries I do forget the hospital should have.

Yes that sounds like a plan. August 17th almost here. I spent the week making sure all the housework and laundry is done. Making sure that I have everything I need for when I come home from the hospital. I'm just waiting on my call from the hospital today telling me what time my surgery is and what time to report to the hospital. The clock is ticking.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
