Good luck! I am one week out and going in for my final preop clearance appointment today!

The week will go by fast! How is your pre-op diet going?

9 days post op! I start "smooth" foods tomorrow and my Vitamins. My hospital divides the 3rd stage in 2; 3A is egg whites, cottage cheese, ricotta, tofu, refried Beans for Protein, and soft bananas, cream of wheat, canned in own juice peaches or pears, sugar free pudding. I do that for 10 days. Then I add in more foods for 20 days (e.g. whole eggs, soft fish, etc.)

I am strangely kind of nervous! I am afraid once I get to eat real food I'll overeat. I am sure this is nonsensical, but it's funny how the mind works.

I had a stressful work related call today, and found myself, phone in hand, heading toward my kitchen thinking about crackers. It was one of those "AHA" moments. I have a feeling I have many more coming....

On the upside I feel really good! I got 8000 steps in yesterday, and all in all I'm feeling good. I seem to be able to drink my glass of Water more quickly, and it does not feel like a full-time job getting myself hydrated. I have been able to get over 65g of protein; the Bone Broth really, really helps. So we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Will be checking in over the next couple of days and weeks. So thankful for this forum.

Hope you are doing well! When you are up to it let us know how it went. I am 5 days out today...just remember that however uncomfortable you are feeling it really does get better each day. Thinking of you!

I’m also 5 days out and get cramps under the breastbone usually a few minutes after sipping something cold. They come and go for about 20 minutes but each time is like a small wave of pain that I guess is like a spasm. I had less today than yesterday so hopefully they’ll stop eventually. I’m still not getting enough fluids and nowhere even close with Protein

Yes that’s about where I’m at too with them. Maybe it’s the cold? I was eating a popsicle.

Good luck! I was nervous too. My surgery was delayed a week because I had the flu so my anxiety was really high. You got this! Can't wait to start reading your reports of post-op life.

Lucky! I’ll be on Clear Liquids plus Protein Shakes for four weeks post op! Sounds like you’re rocking it!

It's so odd how different everyone's pre and post op diets are. I have to say the post op Clear Liquids and Protein Shakes was mostly much easier for me than the far less restrictive pre-op; the loss of hunger hormones is real! I also must say chicken Bone Broth has been my new best friend. I hope I don't have so much of it I can't enjoy it after I get through this. I can see using this to up my Protein on a very regular basis. Good luck! Keep us posted!

I've been getting really bad cramps too. 3-4 times a day. Still not sure if it's just cramps or if it's gas.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
