@Bwa, congrats! My surgery is scheduled for 10/27. I totally get where you're coming from! I've started doing what I call a "Brain Dump" in my journal. Sometimes the thoughts come so fast and furious its overwhelming. So I just write them as they come. Its not meant to be a coherent entry but a way to get what's swirling around in my head out and onto paper where I can see it. Sometimes I see things I need or want to do and other times its just ramblings of a mad woman. But it helps. At least it helps me. Maybe give it a go!

What a great idea! Thank you for the suggestion.

Mine is on Wednesday 10/21. Pre-op diet has made me feel sick most of the time & made gerd feelings worse. I have fallen off of it a little a few times but I’ve lost almost 20lbs in 11 days. I’m scared my liver won’t be shrunk enough. Also, Tuesday I have to drink a bottle of magnesium citrate. Hopefully that won’t make me puke. I’m extremely nervous and can’t sleep. Stomach aches all the time. I’m constantly hungry. Questioning a lot right now. I do love this group and I thank you for sharing your stories.

I had mine October 2nd! I'm supposed to stay on Protein drinks, Jello and yogurt until 3 weeks post op, but I was so tired of them that yesterday I had 1/4 cup of grits and today I am having horrible nausea and heartburn, which I haven't had since the surgery. Now I'm worried i damaged my staples.

I feel pretty good. Not much stomach pain, my back hurts more than my stomach. Sometimes Water feels like it's getting stuck in my chest but it goes way. Burping hurts sometimes too. But all in all I feel great, just sore

Burping finally feels pretty normal now, 3 weeks post op today. Hope you are doing good!
