Any April 2021 surgeries?!



Recommended Posts

I am scheduled for 4/9... nervous and excited all at the same time. Have been stocking up on supples. Still worried that something will go wrong and surgery will be canceled.

I was thinking about starting mine early also. I am suppose to start my pre op diet on the 2nd but, I might end up starting it at the beginning of that week. Have either of ya'll scheduled your pre op appointment with the hospital? I'm waiting on them to call me but, is making me super nervous! I have a pre op appt scheduled with my drs office but, they said the hospital would call me to schedule another one.

Best things people told me to bring were pajama pants (forget a robe cause all the wires make that impossible) you will want to cover up when walking around and phone or iPad. I watched Netflix and played games while awake but slept a lot as well. You don’t need much more than that. Seriously. Good luck. 🍀

After surgery I found that the Protein Shakes were too sweet. I have been drinking the clear Protein Drinks (premier protein) and am slowly going back to one shake a day since they are more nutritious. broth that you mix yourself is good so you can adjust it to your tastes which will change and for full liquid stage the cream of Soups were my go to (I mixed them with milk to make them a little creamier and I was able to add spices as tolorated so that helped). But definitely recommend having some clear Protein in case the shakes won’t go down as easy as expected.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
