I work from home but only 4 hrs a day. I started back but definitely can tell when I have sat for 4 hrs. I stand up and my stomach sore. It's better. Today I went to the grocery and did not drink enough before going and I got weak. Ever get behind on drinking fluids it takes a while to catch up.

Good luck to the 5/31 surgeries!
I’m off to the beach with my daughter for some of the Memorial Day weekend. DH is staying home with the dogs and her twin brother to do some fishing and golf.
My surgery is 6/8…5:30 am arrival to hospital and 7:30 surgery.
Thinking of all of you who are on deck for this week! You ALL have got this!

I had my post-op check up appointment today (at 11 days post-op) and I’ve been approved to move onto purées - I’m so excited!

Scouring this site and online generally for ideas; if anyone has any suggestions they enjoyed at this stage I’d love to hear them 😀

Yay! I'm still a week away but can't wait.

I am really looking forward to some refried Beans and the ricotta bake.

I just had my surgery on the 26th, so I’m fresh off the table lol it’s been a struggle remembering to sip my liquids and get some walking in. Especially because I felt so tired and lethargic after the first couple of days. I feel a little more energized now though! Good luck to everyone else.

Congrats on your surgery! The first couple of days were tough for me too, the key thing is to take care of yourself, rest when you need to, it’s so important for your recovery.

Don’t obsess about walking, as long as you are moving about periodically you’ll be great. Each day for me came with a little more energy, and it was easier to get fluids in, then it was easier to walk, which gave me a bit of an appetite etc, etc. I promise you it’ll get easier - keep the faith & trust the process 😊

I haven't had my surgery yet. It is scheduled for April 12th but this site and the people here are so great. There is so much information here! I thought I had done a ton of research but hearing about real people and things they have encountered both good and bad has been very helpful for me. Good luck to all May surgeries

I agree had mind on May 24

Hi May Surgery 2022 well tomorrow is the big day for me, so why I get Bun/Creatinine results back and it is a 25. I am thinking I'm staying well hydrated, I use 2 apps helping me to and reminding me to drink Water, so I'm thinking what else could it be? Like they say no news is good news because my doctor haven't said anything about it. Any feedback?

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
