Good evening. Congratulations my fellow September 23 partner. I totally relate to everything you had to go through I had very similar requirements. Only thing left to do is see the surgeon again this coming Tuesday and going for preop bloodwork and ekg on this Wednesdsy. I'm dreading that preop diet as well. Nothing I can do to change it's part of the process so why complain about it. Good luck with surgery and I hope you have a speedy recovery. Please keep me posted 😊

I haven't had the pre-op stuff done yet, but they said it would be about 3 weeks out from surgery. Of course, we had the holiday this week I see the surgeon on Thursday this week, so will probably get my pre-op diet info then, and schedule the bloodwork and whatnot. I did the paperwork last visit, so we shall see! And same to you! Good luck, and easy healing! :D

I have to do the preop diet for 10 days. 2 shakes a day and weight watchers dinner. I can also have up to 1 cup of celery & carrots🙄

Glad you are doing so well. How many nights did you spend in the hospital?

I had a strong reaction to the anesthesia. What should have been 1 night turned into 2. The anesthesia slowed my bladder function down. I wasn’t able to pee on my own, so the had to catheterize me. Just remember, this is NOT the norm. I had a more complex and invasive surgery in 2013, and came out of anesthesia feeling pretty good. Whatever they used this time just knocked me out.

Congratulations. I wish mine was over as well I'm scheduled on the 28th. I heard so many things about that gas pain that's what makes me nervous. But I also realize that everyone is different and so are their pain tolerance. Either way I have to go through it in order to have the surgery. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thank you Linda72. You’re surgery will be here before you know it!!!

Thanks Dee and Linda. I am doing good but there are many others who are not so lucky. There were alot of persons who lost their life. And many persons are still stuck in their attics and roofs trapped from the Water and storm surges. So we are all praying for them.

I started my liquid diet on Monday and that was ok but then today when it hit me that I could no longer go to food for comfort I started to feel a little anxiety. But after I spoke with a surgery twin of mine I felt better. Today I went to the store and got some more options so I am feeling a lot more positive. Also my surgeon said every other day I can have chicken breasts with broccoli or similar. But today was a real reality check because I was sitting at my desk feeling a little stressed and my mind immediately went to unhealthy Snacks. Then almost instantly I remembered I could not have them. Lol. I am definitely learning and pushing through. This will make me stronger and I will not give up or in.

So wonderful to hear you are ok. Thank Goodness. After going what you've been through with this storm your surgery is nothing. I couldn't stop thinking of you as I was watching the news. The photos & the videos were just heartbreaking. I love the Bahamas always have. Been there several times to several of the islands both big &.small. I wish you nothing but the best and a speedy recovery. 🙏🏻

So glad you are okay!!! My family and I were just in the Island a few weeks ago and to see what has happened has been so sad!! My family is praying for a quick and speedy recovery!! 🧡[emoji169]

I saw a little of the footage on the television. I wish there was more I could give besides thoughts and prayers to everyone. [emoji173]

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
