7 days and still on liquids, let me tell you it ain't fun at all. The pain from surgery is almost gone but the idea of continuing to drink liquids all day is really taking a toll on me idk, I feel no energy and sometimes get dizzy. Its mental strength that I need i am driving myself crazy, but I know this too shall pass.

Hang in there! It's only temporary. I have my surgery on Monday, the 14th. I'm kinda nervous. But I am thinking positive. It's our new start to a healthy new us! Update when you can :)

You've got this!!! You are currently going through the worst part, in my opinion. Everything gets easier as time goes on, you'll be so happy with the results!

Hang in there, but check with your doctor. Based on how you’ve been feeling, they may approve you to,move to the next stage sooner.

Yeah, eight days out and I just started purees. I do feel MUCH better. I have almost no pain now, A teeny bit, but not even enough to bother with Tylenol. I just put my heating pad on my tum and it works well manage my pain. So far I have made a pureed black bean Soup, whipped cauliflower mashed potatoes with chives and LF cream cheese, smoked tuna pate and sugar free Jello pudding, which I added dark cocoa powder and cinnamon, whipped it for 10 min, poured into 4 oz containers that i had spread 1TBSP of all natural no sugar Peanut Butter into the bottom and put it into the freezer to set. came out sort of like a mouse! I used 1% milk.

The tuna "pate" is a can of chunk light tuna in Water, undrained, 2 TBSP lowfat cream cheese, slices of red onion chopped, a couple of dashes of liquid Smoke and salt/pepper to taste. I threw it all into a food processor and ground it until it was as smooth as hummus. I thought it came out pretty good as well.

No, actually. The slices of onion are almost paper thin. But sauteing might not be a bad idea!

I was on Clear Liquids for 2 weeks after surgery, then full for a week. It was by far the hardest part of surgery for me, even more than the post op nausea and a kidney stone I had 11 days post op. It feels like forever when you're going through it, but it passes quickly and before you know it, it is over. Once you get past liquids it is so much easier! Hang in there!
