Wow, I didnt even realize this was possible!:huh: I actually gained 8#s from the surgery itself, which I lost after several days, plus another 7#.

ETA, I just realized that I said 9# before -- it was actually 7#. Bad mental math on my part!:D

I gained 9 lbs from the surgery, but quickly lost it once I came home. I have been loosing approximately 1 lb a day since the surgery. I had my post op yesterday and I am down a total of 24 lbs. I am happy with my progress and working at tracking all my fluid/protein intake in the Baritastic AP.

Overall I am feeling really good, but I get tired super easy. Just keeping the house clean, laundry, and walking my dog or playing him and I'm exhausted!

It's good to hear everyone's progress and feel like we are in this together!

Mine was 3/19

hosnestly first and second day was a bit challenging. But I feel great. Just planning on haow to dribk 64 oz liquid and 60 Grams of Protein. Any suggestions?

My surgery was on 3/12 and I swore there is no way possible to ever get the liquids and Protein in. I realize that it takes a little time to build up to that and you have to be very strategic. I have been drinking the nectar fuzzy naval protein 23grams of protein and started mixing it with skim milk which has 8grams of protein. I have 2 a day and I love the taste (which helps). After surgery my stomach is not handling the premier protein(:.

Also trying the protein Water which has about 15 grams a bottle. Lastly I drink hot tea in the day and sometimes at night ( I love peach). You will get there but pace yourself. It took me 8 days after surgery to hit my protein. Also I sip all day long even if I don't feel thirsty. Your are 3 days in so popsicles and Jello may be your friend but trust me you will get there just keep pushing:)

I’m not sure. They couldn’t get blood for the labs. They are going to hang a bag of fluids with Vitamins once it arrives.

I am sorry to hear this. I hope you are feeling better soon. I know its a struggle to get in the fluids but we must! Maybe you should try putting yourself on a timer every 15-20 minutes and then have an ounce or two of liquids. I think Apple203 was having success with that.

Awww I’m sorry to hear that. I haven’t been meeting my fluid goals either but I’m trying. Get well. Are they going to release you afterwards?

Just got my surgery time of 9:30am Monday morning the 26th! So surreal it's finally happening, Doc only gave me a day of liquid diet however I feel I should do more to shrink my liver up. Debating with that. Exercising and practicing with my in spirometer (sp) every night. Just looking forward to this time next week when I hopefully am in a groove. Sip, sip, sip, walk. Etc.

Eeeeeeeeeeeee

I am home now. I feel significantly better but wiped out. With the added fluids I was finally able to have my first BM for a week (worst one of my life) but my systems are awake again. Surgeon said if I am still having troubles tomorrow he wants to repeat the upper GI to see if there are any issues/blockages.
