Surgery Date April 27


10 posts in this topic

After what feels like forever, I have a surgery date of April 27 and I start my pre-op diet tomorrow. For the last week I have been eating small portions of lean Protein with steamed veggies and more Protein Shakes than I can stand.

Anybody else one week out?

I just found this forum but I am so excited to learn and share in each of your journeys.

Best wishes.

Good luck! Mine was yesterday. Its rough (it was for me anyway) the first day. Just walk, walk walk and sip on whatever liquids they allow you. Day 2 is a thousand times better!

Thanks! Surgery went well and I was pleasantly surprised I had no nausea!!! Back home now and struggling to get in fluids. Dealing with some serious gas pain. I've tried walking and gasx but am feeling minimal relief.

I've been walking and would welcome more gas relief as well.
I go home on Sunday. So far I've tad a cup of ice chips and it's been an interesting feeling. I can't wait to be home in my own bed.

I've found that for me warm, slightly thicker liquids are the easiest to consume. I had a tiny decaf soy latte and it was the first thing I consumed without feeling pain from drinking it.
