For those who have already had surgery, any suggestions for what to bring to the hospital? Things to get ready for the return home?

I just brought clean underwear, a pair of gym shorts, and a T-shirt. I didn't even wear my shoes on the way home, because they put me in traction socks.

Maybe it's different for a woman.

My surgery is scheduled for Monday, June 7th. Just finishing up my 4th day on liquid diet. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

I'm on day 4 of my LRD now, have lost 6lbs WHAT?! I'm allowed milk, yogurt, fruit and vegetables on mine and it really isn't bad at all.

Yay! Which ones are you trying? I like the Premier Protein and fair life shakes ice cold. Is your stomach not tolerating it?

Just had my surgery on the 7th and I am back home. Seem to be okay with sipping liquids but doing it very slowly. I didn't take any of my Vitamins but plan to try and take them tomorrow.

Congratulations! My postop diet has me taking Vitamins a month after surgery. However I’m going to do the Vitamin Patch right after surgery. Are you feeling ok and drinking Soups and shakes?

So far I am drinking Water and a Protein elecrolyte drink. I will try some broth with Protein Powder tomorrow. I am relieved that I am able to stay hydrated but need to push my protein levels up. Still needing my pain meds but hoping I can switch to Tylenol tomorrow. I ended up having a hernia repair so maybe that is part of the reason my pain still lingering.

Just checking in. I'm at home now and doing pretty good. So far no real nausea. Drinking Water and Protein Drinks thus far. Had some cream of chicken Soup, yogurt, and pureed turkey while in the hospital. Pain isn't too bad. Heartburn is gone! Most the gas pain is gone, just have some pain from surgery itself. So far no hunger. Hope everyone else is doing well!

        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!
