    Hi Charlie, I saw where you said you made chicken salad from the canned chicken. I was wondering what you ate with it. I would normally eat a sandwich or crackers with my chicken salad.

Looking forward to puree foods this week

by Charlie47 on 07-21-2013 at 05:11 PM
I get to start puree foods on Tuesday. I will do this for 1 week. I am excited to see what I can come up with to put into the blender. I must say I am feeling good, the tiredness has pasted, I feel my energy level coming back I am 11 days post op. I have lost a total of 25lbs so far. I am happy but thought it might of been more (this is total of pre op and surgery)

I had some egg drop soup today it was really good a change from just broth.
Greg is home and I have been cooking

Got in all my Protein yesterday!!!

by Charlie47 on 07-15-2013 at 11:27 AM
I finally was able to work in all my protein yesterday and liquids. I am really liking the Unjury Unflavored Protein. I learned how to mix it in liquids with out it clumping and there is no added taste. I got in 72 grams of protein and was able to swallow all my meds (I take 3 BP meds & 1 cholesterol daily) First few days they were wanting to come back up are felt like they were stuck. Can't wait to be off of med's.

All in all I feel good, just still feel tired during the day.

I am now Sleeved!!!

by Charlie47 on 07-11-2013 at 02:45 PM
I can't believe its all over and I am feeling really well. Only pain I had was after surgery in the middle of my back. The pain medicine took care of that. I woke up this morning feeling good. I have some gas and bloating discomfort. Other than that I am amazed how easy this surgery was for me. I was able to walk out of the hospital today. I started walking since last night.
Working on my liquids & protein I barley got 24oz down so far today.

15 Hours...........tell show time

Surgery in the morning, can't believe it is here

Got my clearance from the Cardio office today. What a way to spend the last day before surgery.
