Surgery was May 7th. I was released from the hospital Saturday evening. Yesterday was pretty rough with nausea and pain. Once that was under control I felt better. My mistake skipping pain pill and zofran thinking I could do without.

I took zofran first this morning and then took the remaining morning pills with 4oz of Protein Shake. That seemed to do the trick and keep me from wanting to throw everything up. I feel so much better today than I did yesterday. Just keep walking and sipping fluids.

First 4 days without caffeine were TRASH. constant headache. Since then, I've felt great! Full of energy. I've been doing 3 shakes a day, 1 big broth and a bunch of water/flavored drinks. I was worried it was going to be hell the whole time.

How's yours going and how are you feeling?

For the most part pretty good, I have been craving popcorn. The hardest part for me is just late nights when I usually eat are cut off. I’m not hungry during the day at all. My first few days were okay it didn’t seem hard to transition. I had pizza for the last meal

Ughhh I'm on day 3 of my liquid diet (4 shakes, 4 one cup servings of certain veggies a day) and the headaches are unreal!!! But of course the lack of caffeine, food and an upcoming visit from TOM will do that. LOL

OMG popcorn 😩 My 3 year old wants it every other day... So the house smells like it. Never fails.

I'm literally sitting in the car with my fussy toddler while my husband and brother in law order bacon cheeseburgers with fries. This is going to go ahead and be the hardest I've hit so far. I should've brought a shake with me! Other than that, all good.

So true! Nervous about my TOM starting on surgery day. I'm normally like clockwork, so... Yikes.

Mine is already late. Figures. Probably my nerves holding it back. It's happened before to me.

If I find myself going through something stressful I swear it come late. It's almost as if once I relax it's like, ok, here I am. LOL

        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 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.

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