Oh...my friend warned me the bloodwork was "plentiful" lol...I guess they'll do that this afternoon?

What hospital are you using?

I'm not feeling hungry on day 6 of the preop diet, but I'm very bored with my options. I got some of the Premier Protein clear Water. It's pretty good! It's a nice break from the shakes, highly recommend :)

It is flavored! I have both the orange mango and the raspberry. If you are not allowed red dyes during your pre-op stage, steer clear of the raspberry. I purchased both from Amazon.

Today was my last day until September 16! I’ve never been out of work for even close to this amount of time. I’m excited!!! I’m also very hungry! Or I guess maybe it’s head hunger. After day just 4 more days on full liquids until surgery. This liquid diet has truly been a test.

I had my surgery August 1st. I’m 9 days post-op from the sleeve. I have a question. Does anyone have a burning sensation when they use their abdominal muscles? I’m having pulling and burning where they pulled my excess stomach out and I wondering if anybody else is experiencing that.

Well they should have stretched an opening instead of cutting all your muscles, but abused muscles and have a Way of Complaining when THEY FEEL Abused, so you get either pain or weird numb spots. Remember the definition of H.O.P.E.- Hold On Pain Ends- many,of us have walked that path with you- I was a Bypass but my Body was NOT THRILLED to be arranged and Let Me Know Also, see not only VSG have their trials- We All Do but We All Get Through and You Will,Too!

Ok my surgery date is August 27th and I'm trying a new pureed recipe I found under this site - ricotta bake! My grand daughter helped and she loved it too! I used 4 oz glass containers but once in this stage, I wouldn't use the full container - only half. I also added 1 scoop of GENEPRO to add more Protein. Anyone tried anything else that was good? Share pictures!

That's great that your trying things out now. I had my gastric bypass 2nd july. The ricotta bake looks yummy. Wishing you all the best on your journey. X

No problem - we need each other for sure! My dietitian will video call me on August 19th to go over my pre-op diet. Due to my weight, it will only be 1 week. I'm so excited! I have my anesthesia assessment appointment August 13th at the hospital I will be having surgery. So - I'm almost there!! I will be taking 3 weeks off, returning after my follow-up with surgeon 9/18. EXCITED!
