TODAY IS EXACTLY 2 WEEKS AFTER MY SURGERY. MY DOCTOR STARTED ME ON MY Vitamins & PRILOSEC AND STILL HAS ME ON A FULL liquid diet ( MEANING JUST YOGURT, BROTHS, CREAM OF chicken Soup (STRAINED) CREAM OF MUSHROOM (STRAINED), CREAM OF CELERY (STRAINED), Protein Shakes, sugar free Jello, SUGAR FREE POPSICLES, SUGAR FREE PUDDING)

I DISLIKE THE liquid DIET!! I'M SO GROSSED OUT BY EVERYTHING NOW. I NEED TO FIND DIFFERENT Soups TO HAVE, BECAUSE ALL THIS SWEET STUFF ( JELLO, POPSICLES, pudding, YOGURT, Protein SHAKES) IS ALREADY MAKING ME SICK :65_mask: I CAN'T WAIT TO START THE PUREE STEP.

I DO FEEL LIKE I'M STARTING TO HAVE MORE ENERGY THOUGH. THE FIRST WEEK I FELT KIND OF WEAK. THE TAPE ON MY INCISSIONS ARE BARELY STARTING TO FALL OFF ( THEY TOLD ME NOT TO TAKE THEM OFF, THAT THEY NEED TO FALL OFF ON THEIR OWN). THIS WEEK I WAS ABLE TO FINALLY MOVE BACK INTO MY ROOM ( I WAS sleeping ON THE COUCH, IT WAS SO MUCH EASIER THEN MY BED). I STILL sleep ON MY SIDE, WHICH IS TOURTURE BECAUSE I'M A STOMACH SLEEPER & CAN'T MOVE TOO MUCH ON THE BED.

I'VE ALREADY LOST 26LBS AND 2 PANT SIZES. I'M BARELY NOW STARTING TO NOTICE IT ON MY FACE AND MY WAIST. I WISH I WOULD'VE MEASURED MY WAIST BEFORE. ANY WHO, I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET MY GOAL WEIGHT! I WILL POST NEXT WEEK :)

Yes @BGOV1225 I am so glad things are progressing for you. Keep up the great work. Prilosec and my stomach do not get along.

I've been taking it off and on. I really don't want to take it at all. So far I haven't had any acid reflux, so I don't see the point ( but I'm not the doctor...lol). I'll continue to take it off and on.

Congratulations!!!! I take my antacid everyday. My DOC said it reduces the possibility of reflux but I think he was just blowing smoke because I don't notice a difference the few times i've missed it. But on the PLUS side I haven't experienced any vomiting or acid reflux.

I know exactly what you mean about the liquid diet. I couldn't wait and cheated and paid the price in stomach pains. Don't be like me. Stick with it one more week then make the move slowly. Glad the energy is up too. As soon as you get to the puree you'll get more energy to start making concoctions in the kitchen. :) I'm on the soft diet and started to incorporate regular foods. Was happy to eat some fish and chicken although it wasn't much. I still have Soup and sugar free pudding in the fridge. Not even going to touch it unless the mood hits. LOL

I haven't been taking it anymore. If I start getting acid reflux, I'll start taking it again. But as of now, I haven't been getting it at all. I hate taking meds that I don't need to. :oEeeek! I also started the puree step early. I did it real slow though. I didn't have any trouble over the weekend, so I'm sticking to it. It was heaven to my taste buds:D. I can't wait to try the soft foods!! hehehe! I have lots of sugar free Jello too.
