Surgery was on 5/13/2019 and came home yesterday from the hospital. Dr. said everything went well and no issues at all.. As soon as I came home I drank a big gulp of G2 not thinking of the ramifications of gulping. We'll I know the ramification now, straight to the sink and it is not very delightful to throw up with 85% of your stomach gone. So I got it now. Overall, feeling good but still some pain and still have some gas to get out. Popsicles, Premier Protein, broth, G2 (slowly), and Jello for the next 10days til I see my surgeon on 5/23/2019 to hopefully move on to Phase 2. But, let me tell you guy something, this ain't no joke pain wise when u wake up in recovery and you first night in the hospital. So don't think this is a joke and u will be running marathons any time soon. Just give yourself sometime to heal, that's what I am doing... Best of luck guys and if you have any questions let me know....

Keep moving and remember liquids in liquids out. The more you move the more the gas will leave. Good luck with your recovery! Keep us posted.

G2 may not be the best choice for a drink, as each serving of 12oz has 7g of sugar, 8g of carbs. Gatorade now has G Zero, it maybe a better alternative as it has 0 sugars and less than 1g of carbs. Another I love is Powerade Zero. Congrats on your surgery.
