Preparation for After Surgery



Recommended Posts

Also something to think about before you stock up on a particular flavour of something right now: often WLS patients find that their tastes change. So what like right now may not be the same afterwards.

The only thing I would add are those popsicle bags to make your own freezies (Amazon has 200 for like $9). I made mine with scoops of unflavored Protein mixed in with protein Water and added mio for extra kick of flavor

I do this with my Jello too . I bought those plastic 2oz food packaging cups off of Amazon. Been using those a lot

That is a *fantastic* idea for the protein pops. Does the powder make them thicker or are they just like regular popsicles?

In addition to what you posted I have:

  • a set of 100 2oz containers with lids.
  • I made a bunch of SF Jello w/ unflavored Protein Powder and SF pudding and pre-portioned them so they are quick for the first few days.
  • I also have a bunch of Premier Protein shakes in a variety of flavors
  • I have a bunch of nectar Protein in fruit flavors.
  • I made a froze a couple batches of pureed Soups and have a cup of each thawing in the freezer.
  • I bought Gas-X and stool softeners (my surgeon recommended I start the stool softners this weekend (Tue surgery) so I did.

My fridge and cupboard are both stocked and ready to go when I get back from the hospital.

Congratulations on everything. On a side note, your bathroom has the best lights...you are going to have great selfie updates, lol. Do great today [emoji16].
When I was building our home I went out with can recessed lighting and very glad we did! Good lighting threw out the whole house on dimmers. [emoji106]

Right now I’m getting the list of meds and Vitamins that my team wants me to have on hand. I don’t have a surgery date yet, so I’m not in a rush. I am “auditioning” clear Protein Drinks so that I can make sure my fridge is stocked with things I will drink.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
