Hey. I'm same surgery day as you. Why so long on pre diet? I thought my 14 days is hard. I'm only allowed shakes, broth, Jello, and popsicles. I'm more excited than nervous now but have been pretty nervous earlier in process for sure. You can do this! We got to stick together!

My pre op diet is that same as yours pretty much.

Just checking in fellow July 2020 surgery frens. My surgery was July 7, was supposed to be discharged yesterday, however I was not passing enough urine to satisfy the requirements to go home. They had to straight cath me 3 times yesterday. After the 3rd one, I was able to go an acceptable amount.
Night 2 was much more laid back. I was not poked or prodded every hour, only when I got up or every 4 hours.
They sent me home on the full liquid diet which is much better than the clear liquid. 👍🏼
I got home around 2ish and I am still so tired, so I took a nap and just woke up.
Time for those pain meds. Liquid acetaminophen and codeine as needed. Pain isn’t as bad as I had figured it would be. 🙏🏼

I hope all of those who had surgery have had a fairly easy go like me.

I had VSG and Hiatal hernia on July 7th and at 7:30am and stayed one night in hospital. Some how in surgery or transferring they messed up my hip I could barely stand on it the first day. Now it’s starting to go back to its normal bad hip self. I have been in a crazy amount of pain. One of the cuts is really inflamed and it burns when I move. I can’t bend at all. I am drinking fine but I bought an unflavored Protein Powder and they lied it has a very gross taste to it. What kind of unflavored Protein powder are all you guys that had surgery already using

I have nectar unflavored Protein Powder that I made some Protein Jello shots with! It has no taste at all! The jello is a little grainy but not so bad I can't eat it. I taste the flavor of the jello actually. Oh! Sugarfree jello that is. My surgery was the 6th and just now starting to feel a bit better. I pray you feel better soon as well!!

Just a thought of “unflavored” Protein Powder is making me nauseated right now. I bought the Unjury on the recommendation of some folks on this forum and it is a whole new level of foul. It will be heading into the garbage. Next up, I ordered some genpro. Hopefully it will be better. Sorry about your incisional pain. Hang in there!

I was sleeved on the 7th. I had to stay an additional day since I wasn’t passing gas or taking in enough Fluid and was discharged yesterday. I’m still not taking in enough fluid as nutrients required ( 2-4 oz/hr) I’m getting 6-8 per day!
The pain was crazy the first two days, now it’s manageable with Tylenol. I’m also doing intentional walking ~25 min other than the moving around the house walking.
Chamomile tea with no sugar is a great way to get rid of gas! Make sure to have it
How is everyone doing so far?
