    I put this in the wrong place so I thought I would copy and paste.... and get your take on it.

    Thank you JMichelle. I do have some questions. I am worried about the pain... Do they give you liquid pain Meds after you leave? I also wonder if my husband can be with me after surgery? I just know this is going to be a very boring trip for him. How was your prep experience? I feel like I'm eating everything that I can get my hands on and I don't know why. Whew... Thats a lot, huh? I will be glad to be on the other side (Hugs)

    We made it to the hotel. It is nice enough. Our room is a little smelly! Lol. But clean. The beds are hard. Everyone is really nice. There are 3 of us having surgery tomorrow so I am excited that there aren't too many. They will pick us up in the lobby at 8 am. Safe travels.

Keeping up the positivity, but keeping it real too.

As of today, I can report that i'm still twaddling along. I'm feeling pretty good but one day, someone came along and dropped a ton of bricks onto my back! The dirty bastard . I've been going all day long as usual, but getting tired earlier. Between 7 and 8 i'm ready to shut it down for the day. It's not a bad thing as I know I need to get to sleep earlier anyway (before midnight).
I'm getting all of my vitamins in, but I gave up on protein shankes. I tried, I really did. I can't tolerate

Here I am, a week and a day post sleeve surgery and still feeling pretty good. I followed up with my doctor today so that we can devise our follow up plan.

I am now 4 days post op and i'm feeling pretty darned good! The first 24 hrs after surgery were pretty rough, but no one should expect a cake walk at that point. Dr. Almanza came in and told us that the first 24 hrs are going to be very rough, because hey, you just had surgery. He did take time to address any issues and answer uestions while we were in the recovery room. It got better and better as time passed. Those gas bubbles are quite painful at first, but I can say that today, they aren't
