  1. 1st Post op visit

    My surgery was January 20 and today I went back to the hospital to meet my surgeon and also my nutritionist. From surgery day I lost 4 kilos.

    My wounds are healed but since I started pureed food I have awful acid reflux so the doctor changed my PPI, hopefully I will see some improvement soon.

    I really feel that going into pureed food was way too early anyway, and since I was very sick at the hospital right after surgery, those 2 days 1/2 of vomiting might have done ...
  2. Post-op

    Hello everyone,

    I'm finally back from the hospital, I was there since Monday for more exams, surgery was on Wednesday, my surgeon kept me an extra day, I was too dehydrated to leave.

  4. First day of liquid diet

    I already like the plain Sunwarrior flavor but it's a little grainy so I tried two new protein powders this morning, and it's a real disaster with the first one. It's called Naturade total soy, there is so much salt in there it actually cover the chocolate taste, and it's sooo sweet!!after one sip I couldn't drink it.

    So I tried the Isopure ...
  5. Introduction

    Hello everyone!

    I'm French, 43 years old, mother of three, married to my high school sweetheart.

    Our jobs make us travel, we left France 14 years ago, and we've been so far living in New Zealand, US (DC and Phoenix), Mexico City, and we are currently in Taipei Taiwan for an other couple of years before heading back to France. Both my husband and I were raised in families who love to travel too and we had a childhood partly out of France. Sometimes it's hard because ...
