I just bought 4 cases of Premier Protein Water for post op. I couldn’t find any local so got it on Amazon $100 ouch

That scenario worries me as does the fact that bari Vitamins have also been up and down $12 per bottle in the last few weeks. I can see those going to $100 or more.

My surgery is December 7, pre op clear liquid is so hard. Best of luck to everyone!

Sams club had the Gatorade Protein Water the last time I was there. I also drank Bone Broth with protein powder — but keep the liquid under 140 degrees so the texture isn’t affected.

I am so happy to hear some of you guys have lost so much weight on the liquid diet, my dietitians said, I can have Soup and Protein Shake, she also said, I can use Atkins or Keto Meal Replacement. I am on keto shakes and soup. Jello and Vitamin Water. It’s working well. Good luck to everyone.

Your body is still healing, it has inflammation, you are likely still carrying a bit of Fluid weight from the surgery.

By the way there is nothing only about 5lb especially post op day 5. You may need to reset your expectations.

Fairlife is seriously the best! I have to agree

They really are! Have you tried the 42g Core Power yet? They're just as good!

My surgery was 12/3 and with the VSG/SADI & hiatal hernia repair - I was in surgery for 4 hours.

I'm doing ok but my pain creeps up after a while. i drink tiny little baby sips and belch immediately after. Bigger sip = stomach pains *and* a bigger belch or several small belches. Currently having a hard time getting down the 64 oz of fluids. But I'm working on it!!! I ate some strained cream of mushroom Soup yesterday with fairlife milk (13g Protein per serving) and Tomato Soup today.

I felt bad at the post-op class in the hospital - another woman and I seemed just fine but another joined us and she seemed so incredibly miserable. Painful, nauseous, etc.

Honestly don't worry LadyH - trust your procedure, the weight will come off when you've recovered from the surgery itself. 5lbs in 5 days is amazing actually! I am 18 days post sleeve and have lost 4lbs only. I know it's disappointing because we compare ourselves to others who sometimes seem to have lost lots more. Keep the faith, drink your Water and get your Protein - you'll be fine!

I don’t think I worded that correct I meant 4 pallets of the Protein Water from Amazon was $100

I just had mine in Viera on the 30th. A local person for me. I'm in Melbourne

Sent from my SM-A125U using BariatricPal mobile app

3 years ago I looked in to it with Dr. Tu (?spel) in Viera and decided not to do it. Then I had no high blood pressure problems and weighed 30 lbs. less. In August of this year I went to a Ortho doc and the doc had the sleeve done in Sebastian and referred me there. I live in Indialantic so for me, the drive is much better. Congrats!!

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
