We had discussed "smashing pumpkins" because that emcompasses fall and halloween (and all things October), but I don't think we've set it in stone. :w00t:

Are you guys getting food etc together already for post surgery? I hate to wait until the last minute but it seems early. Guess I just want to do something to get ready. I am soooo ready!

I haven't been to nutrition class yet so am not sure of the post op steps, but I have spent a couple of hundred dollars trying different Protein Drinks. The GenSoy I took back as disgusting and stinky!!!!

I have bought the clear fruit flavored Isopures as I know that there is a week of Clear Liquids post op and I know we need Protein to heal.

(this will be my 4th time typing this, let's see if I can actually post this)

I've been putting off buying stuff until I went to the nutritionist, which was today. She brought me a bunch of literature and a card to be able to order off the children's menu. I'm going to go through it tonight and compare it to the lists here and get to shopping.

Just got the call, 10/7/08 for me. My daughter is devestated because it's a day after her birthday. I told her we can Celebrate it early, and she said its not the same :rolleyes:. She'll be 13. Maybe that explains ita all.

9/22 I go to the pre-op class...and 9/23 start the liquid diet.

Nice to see theres a few of us here...

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
