What is THE tastiest pre-op Protein Drink concoction you've made?

Mine is hands down my banana and cream Isopure drink made with 1/2 Fairlife fat free milk and 1/2 sf vanilla Coconut Milk with added powdered Peanut Butter. It tastes like peanut butter nana.

Now to finish the previous thought. I called back to schedule my presurgical blood work. Lady#2 well I don't see YOU in the surgical schedule so don't count on then. Sat and cried for 5-10 minutes then since it WAS Social Security day and I had bills to,pay I left the house. Couldn't just sit there and wallow in my misery and besides I needed a change of scenery. When ibreturned home 2-3 hours later there was a call on my answering machine for surgery scheduling, immediately called them back only to find out they had left at 4pm and wouldn't be back until Monday at 7am. Have been stewing since then and imagining all kinds of scenarios. Am I still having surgery the 15th? Only God in Heaven knows and he hasn't sent me " a word of knowledge" as the TV evangelists say. My guess is between then and St Patrick's Day but then WHAT DO I KNOW?

I'm sure you're good for the 15th - unfortunately it seems many times these silly systems take ages to talk to one another even though they're all in the same hospital. I would be extremely upset as well so I know it's easier said than done, but sit tight and try not to stress. Tomorrow you should get some answers :) Hope you're still in the 2/15 club, cause it's the best place to be! (Sorry Fluffy. 2/20 can be second :))

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
