Any April 2021 surgeries?!



Recommended Posts

I found mine at Target, not to expensive. When I was doing my pre-OP, I didn't like them that much but now post-OP they are pretty good I mix them with a lot of things.

@Blueslily how are you feeling,, surgery was a success im sure.

Hi there,

Thanks for asking. Overall, I'm doing ok. Tomorrow, Tuesday is my One Month mark. Crazy! A lot happens and changes in one month.

I will post a one month update tomorrow.

How are you doing ?

I will have to look for these. Amazon had them but they were super expensive and I have BOXES of Pure Protein and slimfast here that I can’t use right now. I’m going to save them awhile and see if I can stomach them in a month or so.

Not sure my last post went to the right place, so I will try again I found mine at Target not to expensive and I can mix with anything

That is good to know. Thanks so much. Maybe I’ll make a trip to Target then if I can’t find them at Walmart. I have to do something different.

I own a business and kind of forced to start working before most people. I was feeling pretty good after 5/6 days. but to keep up with the pressure of 8 hour days, not sure about that. there were moments i just stopped supervising and needed a rest. It is super important to let the body heal.

All of a sudden today I have crampy/dull pain on my lower left abdomen. Anyone have similar? Know what it is?

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
