Congratulations on making it to Surgery Eve! I remember I too was so excited I could hardly eat anything before going NPO. Speaking of NPO, I will be joining you later this evening, I have an Endoscopy😷 scheduled tomorrow MORNING, this is either my 12th or 13th lifetime, and don't laugh, but before each one I have a few chilly toes if not a whole cold feet. I have had poor and slow healing from my RNY, a stricture showed up only a few weeks in. Have had gastritis, a structured stoma and ulcerations in my jejunem, the portion of my small intestine the pouch now connects with. Oh I am a rarity, there are only a few others on Bariatric Pal and mine has been the longest duration, it has been 9 months since my surgery, usually only takes a short while to be repaired, but ME I just got to be SPECIAL! So I am hoping there will be a noticable improvement, but I am not so certain. Still having my ulceration pains. But I promise, since my procedure will be mid- morning to🙏 pray for you that all will go well. It Will distract me from brooding about myself and my troubles.👈😛👉

Ok. So I have to be to the hospital in 11 hrs. I have not packed my bag (procrastinate much?) The nerves have been activated!! liquid diet today, and I am not even hungry. Just excited to alleviate the constant knee pain.

I'm totally going to be in the same boat, @onepreciousk . Hope your surgery went smooth today and that you're not in a lot of pain. I can't wait for the reduction in constant knee pain, too! NSV!

Well the Bruins are feeling a little " Blue" after the Game 7 loss tonight. That said I WILL CONTINUE to pray🙏 for PAPI, he was a great player but the times I saw him interviewed he was. a Total Gentleman, and that is a rarity among Sports Figures. I hope he will get stronger then heal for I believe God still has plans for him.

Gah. Pre-op diet is kicking my butt.

I've been nauseous all day. I've only managed to get one Protein Shake and 2 cups of broth down. I threw up 2 more Protein Shakes.

I really hope tomorrow is a better day.

Why are u having issues with Protein Shakes?

maybe it’s the kind, I had to try like 4 kinds, I couldn’t use ones with the fake sugar in it. I attached the one I use.

how much longer till surgery cause I’m worried if you having issues now, you’ll be even worse after with Naseau.

I had and still have at times Naseau issues post op.

post op about 3 weeks in, i wails have issues if needed to eat, I would be Nauseous. I learned I needed to eat. The worst was the morning. Going 10 hours or so with no food, waking up, a normal person would have food digesting but with sleeve, we have nothing in there but gastric juices. So I woke up and have a few crackers, mornings still stink, but better as time went on,

get a hold of this before you have the surgery

good luck

It's almost certainly the shakes, but my doctor doesn't allow substitutions, in general.

I'm only allowed to use HPMR Bariatric Advantage shakes.

They're awful. I hold my nose and do my best to get them down, but it's not working that great.

I'm going to call them first thing in the morning and see if they can help me!

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
