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.

Hello, my surgery was June 1st so I’m in recovery stage. Doing good, but Protein Shakes are the worst!! Ugh!! Good luck 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!

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
