  6. Re: what do you wish you had known before surgery?

    Overall it has been a positive experience for me. I made sure I walked and walked as soon as I was allowed to in the hospital. I do think this helps you have a quick recovery. I'm doing things now I...

    Re: Husband has regrets :(

    I'm sorry you are both going through so much. What does the surgeon say about how he is feeling? Are they giving him meds? Would it help for him to stay on soft foods or even liquids longer?

    Re: Best advice for someone getting surgery.

    Best advice is to walk as soon as you are allowed to get up post surgery. And walk, as much as you can walk. I had a really easy recovery and I swear this is why.

    Re: How many carbs at 3+ months?

    The only carbs I really eat are green vegetable carbs. At 3-4 months out I don't think I was eating more than a forkful of a carb. I was still focused on getting in my protein and just didn't have...
