    Talking Surgery is tomorrow 11/22/10

    Hello everyone,

    I am new to this site. I have lurked for a while and finally joined. There is a wealth of information on this site. And so much support.

    My surgery is tomorrow morning and I am nervous. But also very anxious. I have to be at the hospital at 6:30am.

    Looking forward to getting this done and will post updates on my journey along the way.

    Wishing everyone well.

    Thanks for the welcomes. I just got home a little bit ago. I feel pretty good. Other than the soreness. I probably could have come home yest but really didn't feel up to par, so my Dr said I could stay. Will keep you all posted on my progress.
    Thanks again

    I am feeling good today. The soreness is better every day. And the bruises have slowly showed theirselves and are starting to turn.

    Altho, I am not hungry. My mind tells me I am. lol Been doing pretty good on the liquids, thanks to jello. That helps with the boring broth. I am so ready for something with some more substance. Will venture out tomorrow to get the unflavored protein mix. Anyone have any they would recommend?

    I have my first follow up appt with my Dr on monday at 2:45. Will post as to what I find out.

    Thanks everyone!

    Hi everyone,
    I am feeling great. I am getting around just fine. Altho a little sore on the inside.
    I just told a friend of mine yesterday, If it wasn't for the soreness I couldn't tell I just had surgery. How awesome is that? I have noticed that I do feel the restriction when trying to drink. You def. have to sip. Not a swallow like normal.

    I hope everyone is doing great.

    @Always-How was the protein shakes? I went to GNC and got the Max Protein in Chocolate. It isn't too bad. I have also been sipping on the Boost protein from WalMart.
    Also I had Gallbladder surgery back in '97 and I was up walking around the next day. Only had the typical soreness. You will do great. You will kill 2 birds with 1 stone which is great! Keep in touch

    Have a great day,

    HI Rosanna,

    its really good to hear you are up and around. Ill keep in mind that sip thing..lol the only thing i ever sip is soup and really hot chocolate or hot coffee so this will be new thing to learn. I am going to my doctors office to get a medical clearance right now, and then
    TOMORROW is the day.. my work still has not got me the paperwork yet, and im stressing about that, dont want to lose my job. Ummm im straving to death, lol my stomach just keeps grumbling from being on this clear liquid diet.
    The protein shakes have been ok, i got the biochem, i found them a tad bit sweet but i am not a sweets lover.. so to anyone else that might be good. I got the vanilla and chocolate judge. I drank them both with no problems.
    I also picked up but have not tried yet, whey protein from Walmart - french vanilla carmel, and strawberry- i have had the strawberry in the past and its good but never had it with just milk, i always did a smoothie. so will see how that goes.
    thanks for the update on you, so happy to hear your moving around good!
    p.s thanks for the info on the gallbladder, i didnt know if thats gonna be extra add pain for me after surgery or not.

    Well, the Dr appt went amazing. They weighed me and on his scale I weighed 210 too. So that is officially 14 pounds gone for good! He checked my incisions and said they looked good. My next appt is in 6 weeks unless I have a problem before then. But I know as good as I am feeling I won't have to go any sooner.

    @Always, Doing both surgeries at the same time sounds like the way to go. Only got pain once. I had to have an upper GI before my surgery because one of my previous doctors said I had a Hiatal Hernia. Well the GI didn't show it. My surgeon said he would look while he was in there just in case he needed to repair it. But all was good. No hernia. Thank goodness.
    So, I guess the previous dr was just trying to get $ ?!? who knows. But like I told my surgeon I haven't had problems with it in a LONG time. But of course he just wanted to be safe.

    Post when you can to let us all know how you are doing. And best of luck!!

    Hugs,
