That is amazing Luna! Gosh, my surgery date weight was 188.8 on Nov. 19th and today November 25 I am 184. Its not coming off as fast for me as you! Lucky girl! I am happy my weight loss is going down though...I have all the patience in the world right now:)




I bet switching to the pureed stage was great but also scary. we neve rknow how our bodies will react. I am looking forward to Friday to "try" something new other than Soup and Protein shakes!




Keep us updated with your progress and any new yummy foods you tried!






Thank you! I really think I’m one of those that was lacking so much in my normal diet, that the Protein Shakes actually helped me feel better. It’s kinda strange but I’m realizing now how many wrong foods I was eating. My energy level is going up even though my body is still recovering. Comparing my diet before surgery.. I can see why I was feeling so tired and miserable. I didn’t have anywhere close to enough Protein. I’m happy to be getting all this information so I can eat better and feel better. Good luck to you and that scale is going in the right direction!

I just tried tuna salad for lunch and it was great! Since we can’t add the vegetables/pickles, I used a tsp of the Pickle Juice to give it more taste. I think when I do fish I’ll use caper juice for flavor. Let me know if anyone else has recipe ideas.

I had surgery on Monday... everything went fine, I slept a lot the first 2 days, and really until about 1-2 on the 3rd day. It was like a switch flipped. I'm still in pain when moving, but not constant pain. Was sent home with Hycet, Zofran, and Pepcid. One thing I learned, do not trust a fart. TMI, I know... but seriously.

Today things are going ok... kids are gone to their grandparents for Thanksgiving, so I'm just relaxing and will probably do that the rest of the day!

Good to hear! I was hoping we would hear from you and Laine.

Relax and enjoy your time off! You do not have to do a thing! Just concentrate on you and healing. It sounds you are doing great!

Too funny! Lol , you gave me a chuckle. Something we all go thru with the surgery. My gas didn’t really start til day 4 but we are all different. Glad all went well for you, and you were able to rest. I can’t imagine going thru this with a young family! I admire you for that! Hope you continue healing, and hang in there for the rest. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Surgery on Nov 30th. Y’all give me the motivation to keep prepping. Though my self determination was definitely tested this Thanksgiving!

I know what you mean! There were so many yummy looking commercials and fb posts leading up to my surgery date. Luckily I'm not hungry, so while they look good, after surgery I no longer feel compelled to go into the kitchen and find something as a consolation prize. Just remember, it's TOTALLY worth it!

I didn't get the "I thought that was gas" moments. I had constipation actually. Nothing is flying out of me!

Well I’m through! I’m in serious pain. I have to have help to get up, down, use the bathroom... I signed up to be part of a study, it was for pre and post-op blood work and a few fat cells removed during surgery. I didn’t expect a few fat cells would turn into an orange size scoop out of my stomach! So advice, say no!!! to studies with vague language like few fat cells!!! I think this is the cause of all my pain.
My other incisions are almost no pain at all!! I finally was able to have a few bowel movements today. Whew! I haven’t thrown up yay! I’ve eaten and drunk Water way less then I should. But today, I’ve kept down 4Tbls chicken puréed with broth and Protein supplement. About half a Protein Shake and about 17 oz of water.
I didn’t expect the intubation tubing they did during surgery to cause my nose to be so gross. Which has caused sneezing = Pain. I was like why did I do this!! But I was able to step on the scale yesterday so 2.5 days post surgery and I’d lost about 5 lbs! It has helped to know this pain has a purpose.
I’m being very specific because I think the better prepared we are for surgery the better we will recover. Thanks for everyone’s support!
