Did you doctor prescribe anything for cramps? When I had my ESG I was given buscopan in my meds kit. It helped a little plus a heat pack can also be helpful. If you Clear Liquids are cold try warm clear liquids, sometimes people can tolerate warm over cold more.

Thank you for your suggestions. I didn't get that script. I got pepcid. I did try M.O.M this a.m. with mild relief. I will try the heat pack and keep the warmer liquids.

I was prescribed a heart burn medication for 30 days after surgery. Ask for a script or you can buy at the store if you want but a script is so much cheaper. Pepcid is to reduce the acid already in the stomach. The other medication is called a proton pump inhibitor. It helps stop the production of stomach acid. The most common is called Omeprazole and its available over the counter called Prilosec in 20mg capsules. Or what i was prescribed was Pantroprazole 40mg. and that one i believe you need a script. Typically these medications you take in the morning and wait like an hour or so before you start eating or drinking.

Following my ESG for the first several days whenever I tried drinking Water it would feel as if I was drinking battery acid. My doctor recommended drinking Fairlife fat free milk. He recommended Fairlife since it is higher in Protein per serving. I was able to drink it without pain and kept me from getting dehydrated.

      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?
