I wonder if these surgeons require different preop diets for different patients or if each program just has its protocol. Seems cruel to require pre-op liquid unless you need to shrink your liver.

Core Protein elite is delicious too. For a dessert treat I occasionally drink the strawberry banana which has more sugar but I just count it in my daily allowance.

I was sleeved 4 days ago. At the recovery room I was in and out but they let my parents see me and everything I remember saying is that it was hot lol... My incisions barely hurts, I do get chest pain from time to time so I take 20mg of Pepcid complete twice a day and for the gases I take Gas-X which has been very helpful...

This is my second day at home and I am under liquids, I have to make sure I drink 60-80 gram of Protein and take my vitamins... My appetite went away so I can see my family eating and I'm not craving to eat the same...

I am so glad everything went well and I believe that you will definitely have a speedy recovery. Thank you for the experienced information it helps to calm any possible fears trying to grow.

I am excited for you. I know that everything has gone well and you are resting easy. Thanks for the idea of having your husband take before pictures. I am going to use that. I can't wait to hear all about your experience. 😊

Well I'm a bit flustered. I Just got a call and surgery was moved to Monday. Talk about annoyed. So now my surgery date is July 17th at 9am. Causing some issues with time off and stuff. Ugh

Tomorrow is surgery day!!!!! Have to be at the hospital at 6 and surgery is for 7.
I am excited but calm. I am at peace knowing God brought me to this and He will bring me through it. I started on January 24, 2017 , that first appt that made 6 mo seem so far away......
This forum has been such a blessing. Everyone here always ready to give support, encouragement and advice.
I am on my way to the losers bench and will check in when I can.
On July 21, 2017 I will be giving birth to the bellydancer who lives inside me. I am so excited to watch her grow smaller and dance and move with grace and ease as I have watched so many times in my mind. I have always danced but my health declined and my weight have made it nearly impossible in the past 6 yrs.
Keep a spot warm for me....here I come!!!!!
