I'm home after surgery and running a slight fever. The doc said to call him if I get to 100.3. I'm now at 99.7.

Also, crushing pills and mixing them with yogurt really ruins the yogurt.

Today's the day. 6 hours to go.

I didn't find the month long preop Optifast diet to bad except for the headaches on day 4 but after that I didn't feel hungry at all. I have really gotten into walking whilst on the diet and have lost nearly 15kg (33lbs).

I have had a few people say to me why bother having the op now that I have lost the weight and just continue on the diet. It did make me question my decision for a while but I new I wouldn't keep the weight off.

I'm now hoping for a smooth op with No complications.

Good Luck to all you other guys with ops this month.

Finally got the call today with my admission time (7.30am isn't too bad!) and got the go-ahead for the finance, transferring the deposit made me feel sick. It's real. It's happening.

Come on June 12th..

So exciting! I should be getting a call tomorrow to confirm admission time. Did my surgery payment with the pre-op appointment. Surgery is less than a week away. It hasn't set in yet for me though. Like, I'm aware surgery is coming up, but it hasn't actually "clicked". I have a feeling I'm gonna be one of the ones that has a good cry on the way to surgery the day of.

Two weeks away for me. Started the LSD today. I have my pre-op appointment with the surgeon next Thursday and I do believe just like you I will be tearing up like you from many emotions. Can't wait.

        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!
