Congratulations on your surgery! I'm still in the pre-surgery process. This is a dumb question but what's the difference between liquids and full liquids?

Hi, Clear Liquids are what you can see through and sugar free for liver shrinking diet. Sugar free Jello, tea, broth, sugar free popsicle.

Full liquids is no lumps, you can have sugar free pudding, strained cream Soups, milk.

I was allowed Protein Shakes and Tomato Soup on my preop diet. You will need with hour surgeon to check as others were not.

good luck

Thanks! For full liquids I was allowed Protein Shakes, yogurt drinks, thin creamed Soups, and sugar free hot chocolate.
Tomorrow I start full liquids, so pudding, pureed Soup, cottage cheese, and greek yogurt.

I was the same with nausea. I take Zofran and it helps a little. I’m 7 days out now, and it’s a lot better.

I’m starting my journey in getting the bypass. I have 6 months to get all my requirements done. That’s no problem. I’m just having a hard time opening up to my family about this. Anyone have advice in how to talk about what I’m doing?

It is your journey not theirs. When you tell them say that you appreciate their input, but you are doing this for you.

I've got 2 drugs to take to line my stomach and one I have to dissolve in Water tastes like bad chalk, not that I ate any. I'm better now after my first shower and I'm sipping my Protein Drink so I'm slowly making progress. I have no pain meds and I'm doing fine. I just keep saying one day at a time.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
