Not surgery related but I just wanted to say hi from another South Dakota native! Born and raised in Sioux Falls but I moved to ND for college when I was 18 and have been here since! Glad to hear you're doing well, I hope my surgery goes that great!

I just had RNY on 6/21/17. I'm in Copperas Cove, Texas. I'm right near Fort Hood. Good luck with your surgery and I hope you get your date in August! Keep us posted!

Things are going good. I still have pain in my left side, but my doctor said that's normal. I had gas pain for about 8 days and walking is what helped that the most. I'm on puréed foods now and so far no issues. I'm limited on my diet per my doctor. It's a small list of purées, but it's not too bad. I can't have mashed potatoes, puddings, thick Soups, certain veggies, and certain fruits. I'm allowed to do cardio now, but no weight lifting yet. I'm limited on my cardio due to a broken foot, so I'm going to check out a gym with aquatic classes for my cardio.

Yeah, there are a wide variety of differences from doctor to doctor, from pre op to all post op stages of diets.
