I'm two days post op. Have you tried gas x? A possible side effect of zofran is Headache. I'm still nauseous and having a hard time drinking but sip, sip, sip. Hopefully we'll get there soon......

forget the gas x drink chamomile tea it will get all the gas out

Good luck...I'm 9 days post op I did a lot of research and so far everything is going so well..only a small snafoo that I didn't see anywhere on this app was an allergic reaction around all my incision sites...other than that can't complain...I get to start puréed foods in 2 days..I actually brought the chamomile tea to the hospital...plus it also helps for bms [emoji119][emoji106][emoji817]

One thing that makes me worry is the fact that the patient information notebook they gave me is that there is no liquid diet and the only admonishment diet-wise pre-op is that (a) no eating or drinking anything after twelve midnight on the day of surgery, (B) you should quit caffeine because withdrawal is going to be a b***h in the hospital (got that down) and © you can't gain weight between the time you have your surgeon's consult and your pre-admit (or pre-op?) appointment.

I had a two week pre-op diet of low carbs/low sugar and then liquids only the day before. I think it helped me prepare for the 2 weeks liquids after surgery. I'm 8 days post op. I list 12 lbs on the pre-op diet also.
Good luck to you! [emoji4]

Yeah, I'm thinking maybe I should start up a liquid diet next week just to be safe. My weight is rollercoastering in spite of my adherence to my 1,800 calorie diet, so this may be for the best.

I'm on my two week pre-op LD right now. It has been a struggle but I'm only on day 3. I hear it gets easier as I go.

Hello everyone! Well i am now 2 days post op! Here was my experiance.
I was schedule to come to register & pay my $300 co pay at 6:30 am. We arrived 15mins early & had to wait for 20 mins to come register. Ok so that was done. After we register & finally go into the pre op room where they weigh you & take ur vitals. So after another 15 mins. I was taken down the to the other end of the room & given my surgerical gown & to put the IV in, that hurt btw, I think the RN was a little ruff because it was just routine for her do that. Now the other RN who gave me the blood thinner shot was very gentle. So all that was done. It took another 3 hrs to go in to have my surgery. Even though I was told I was Dr Fordorkas first patient it still took him that long to come get me. SO it was from 6:15-11am to get my surgery started. When I was waken up from that wonderful sleep it was about noon time. No here is the worse part: i stayed in the recovery room for 5 hours waiting for hospital room! My family was very upset because they were waiting for all that time with no one coming to update them on my status! It was 5pm when I finally got into my room![emoji35]
But after all that waiting my surgery went well. My pain stayed between the 3-4 mark on the pain chart. The,first thing I did before they hook me up with all the omitors & stuff I used the rest & walk a little! My nurses all thought I was their super star patient. They didnt expect me to go pee or walk so soon! They didnt know that my goal was go home in Less than 24 hrs in order to get some of my copay back. You see kaiser told me if i stayed in the hospital for less than 24hrs then my copay would only be $124. So if they didnt make me wait so long just get my surgery done I wouldve made & got some of my copay back. Plus I over heard that Dr Fordorka is a very slow doctor! But for me he did a very good job on me![emoji16]

Tomorrow's the big day. Really worried because just in the past 2 days I've come down with a cold. No fever, it's basically all nasal but the postnasal drip is irritating my throat. They said to proceed as normal and they'll assess me in the morning. Hope I'm well enough for surgery! I'm certainly ready!

Hello Jaejae79
How did ur procedure go? Im 2 days post op myself!

Hi Harmonylynn. My pain wasnt to bad @ first felt more like sore muscles.
After I got home yesterday the pain got a little more like mentral cramps or severe hunger pains! Cant wait till tomorrow when I can start back to drinking my protien shakes, Vitamins & yogurts.

Yes I agree about the tea! When I was in the hospital they served me camomile tea! It was the best thing I could drink!
Thanks for the reminder. Now that im home ima go fix me some right now!

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
