Good luck with your appointment. My dad had gastric bypass back in 89 and they removed his gall bladder as well.

30 days out and I am finally having my first cup of coffee.
Oh such a normal thing to do in the morning when I awake.
Tried it two weeks ago, something wasn't right.
Now it's Heavenly.

The 16 oz of water I use to make one protein shake of Nectar (Fuzzy Navel)?
If I had 3 of these shakes a day that would be 32oz of fluids .. do I add that fluid toward my 64 oz I need ?
Also: I drink a protein shake Premier that I consider a meal.
Do I wait 30 mins before drinking any water?
Or is waiting 30 mins only for food meals?

I am 9 days post op.
Starting to get heartburn.
Last night a Premier Protein Shake, waited 30 mins, went to bed
woke 7 hrs later and I could still feel like I just drank it could almost taste it
If I do burp it feels instantly okay
Very strange if I keep my shoulders back real stand up real tall, it seems to lessen.

Had my sleeve done my DR. Kuri in Tijuana 6 days ago on Aug 17 spent 4 days in hospital and 2 in hotel.
After reading all the posts on this site and U tubes I expected the worse.
I did have to get stuck twice because they couldn't get the vein.. my worse experience
After I woke up in the recovery room, I had no pain. I was rolled to my room and that day I did not get up from the bed..was not asked to walk and I slept most of the day. I was amazed .. Kept waiting

I am going to get my sleeve done soon... excited for my new journey and lifestyle.
One of the 4 pillars I learned here was exercise.
What do you all do? What type?
I'm 58 and already have had wrist surg and I hear I need to make sure I do not do too much/the wrong kind because I am older. Any ideas out there?
My minds is 45 though.
