I’m on Monday, too! It seems like there are a few of on the same day. Wishing you all a speedy recovery! I catch my plane in a few hours. Definitely not looking forward to a week of wearing compression socks. I tried them out for a day and they roll down a little bit but mostly just make the eczema on my legs go crazy.

Good luck! Where are you having surgery? I was not told anything about compressions socks...Everyone seems to have somewhat different directives. Hoping you have a smooth recovery!

I’m having surgery in Toronto, so flying across the country (Canada). If I wasn’t flying, they wouldn’t have been needed.

Congratulations on all the February surgeries. Mine was Feb and successful the biggest issue I have for the las few days has been gas in my tummy. My biggest incision is really sore too. Otherwise, I'm very grateful for this 2nd chance at life to care for my health and body much better than I did before. Not only am I on a new journey. I'm on a mission for Positive change ❤️👌

Glad to hear you are doing well! Your positive attitude is showing through. I'd love to hear how the post op diet is going, etc. I'm so happy to have found this board and this thread of other people on this amazing journey!

I had my PreOp meeting with the surgeon yesterday and started my PreOp diet today, so far so good. Does anyone else have to do lovenox injections after surgery? That was something that I found out that I didn't expect.

Shots for 7 days for me, I guess better safe than sorry. I think you're doing it right...move, move, move. How is everything else going for you?

My after diet post op week one is all Clear Liquids. I have all my chewable: Probiotics, (3 per day) Multivitamin, (one per day and calcium citrate w Vitamin D.(3 per day) It was hard trying to so all this chewing and get them all down but I'm progressing. My fav part of the liquid diet is chicken noodle Soup broth, lime SF Jello, and Apple/melon Isopure drink Sipping away at the Water to try and get as much as possible to avoid dehydration. I'm up and moving and able to shower daily. Having to remember to do my physical therapy breathing unit to avoid pneumonia. They said it's better to be consumed with something other than your diet after surgery so you won't be totally obsessed with your diet. So, Netflix, YouTube, lifetime and CNN have kept me company. Hope this helps.
