Okay So today with my pre registering I spoke to a hospital dietitian/nutritionist, a nurse, and my anestigeologist!!! I don't take any prescribed meds but my dietician did request that on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday my surgery day, I should take Prilosec OTC... Well ladies its another day closer and im about to go to bed.. 5 days and counting.. : )

Well I've had my sleeve gastrectomy surgery on...

Well I've had my sleeve gastrectomy surgery on April 1 st and today is 3 days post op!!! My biggest fear is that I won't be able to get all my fluids in plus 60 grams of protein... I'm just not hungry yet I am still continuing to sip on these liquids... Warmer liquids do seem to feel better that cool liquids. Of course there is pain and discomfort.. I am feeling a bit tired and week and to top it off Mother Nature decided to show up.. Smh.. Ill continue to keep an update.. My stats before 2 week diet I was at 297, surgery day 286, and now 3 days post op I'm at 281!!!
