Other than the shopping list noted on here (thank you for that!)- is there anything I should be DOING to prepare? I've been eating fairly healthy and exercising 4 days a week. Is there anything else I should do? I'm getting nervous :(

I have major wheat, dairy, gluten allergies....so as far as fiber goes what do you all suggest I eat afterwords? I know veggies arent going to sound good??

Are you going to get a pain pump? My PS said it helped tremendously with post op pain...

Buon Girono!

There are SO many wonderful lists here on Real Self to follow, definitely peruse them. Like you, I was working out every single day prior to my surgery since i knew it would be a while before I could hit it hard again. I spent 3 hours at the gym the day before & it felt great. I also cut my food intake that evening before to have a "clean" system prior to surgery. That felt great too.

Try not to be nervous - you will be fine and you will love the results!

Ciao bella
