Hi everyone! Had my surgery Friday. I’m still a bit sore but not in pain or nauseous. Any ideas for week 1? I know is 2 oz every 20 minutes but wanted to know how you guys survived it.

My surgery date was 7/22/2019, so tomorrow will make my official 1 week.

i think I may be a (lucky) anomaly. I have not experienced any difficulty in drinking my Water & Protein Drinks. I haven't had much gas. While I was sore & swollen for the first 4 days, today most of the swelling is gone.

The best thing for me? I'm NOT hungry! I'm lovin' this! I hope it lasts.

Week 1 was the easiest because all you have to eat or drink is liquids and you're really not hungry and you're very compliant at that point. You've go this, you can do it! Just keep sipping, sipping, sipping. Incorporate sugar-free popsicles too.

I wish I COULD walk! My hip is so messed up. I need to lose the weight so I can go for a hip replacement.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
