    Re: Having cold feet 5 days from surgery

    You will. It will be real normal, not eat until I can't fit another thing in my body.........That's why we have/had surgery. I'm almost 3yrs out and it was best thing I ever did for myself.

    Re: Protein shakes. Yuk too thick

    I only like the chocolate premier protein shake 30 grams of protein, and the vanilla GNC 25 gram protein shake. I use the vanilla one in my coffee instead of milk and sugar.

    Be persistent. Continue seeing a Dr at least to check your weight. Some Drs don't charge for that. I had to track weight and BP. I would walk in and Nurse would check quick and write it in my chart....
