So has anyone that has surgery tomorrow felt sick from having to drink the Magnesium Citrate for the bowel prep. This stuff is so sweet and thick n lemony I have been fighting throwing up for hours. I just don’t understand why we have to do this. This two week diet feels like some cruel punishment for being fat. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 Am and I feel like sh t and I have a crazy headache and I am tired of being tortured 😩and I’m freakin out a bit.

I had two days of bowel prep, but mine was Golytely, not Magnesium Citrate. My stuff wasn't flavored nearly enough, even with the little flavor packet they gave me. Yesterday was awful. I did end up nauseous after 2 glasses (had to drink a 1/2 gallon of the stuff), and ended up popping one of the nausea pills I'd been subscribed. It worked, but nothing could help having to choke that stuff down. Took me almost 4 hours to get through the 1/2 gallon.

Today was easier, though still horribly unpleasant. No nausea and I just powered through it to get the 1/2 gallon down in under 3 hours.

Also have to be at the hospital for 5:30am tomorrow. Going to try to head to bed shortly, but not sure how much I'll sleep.

You got through the worst part of it, though! It's a downhill run from here on out!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
