Ladies, please do not give out personal information such as telephone numbers in a public forum. Not only is it dangerous but it violates RealSelf terms of service. I have edited out the personal numbers.

Thanks,

Kirsty

Glad to hear you're doing well Foxyy. If either of you ladies are interested, we now have a new area on RealSelf for WLS and there are some PDF guides, which relate to nutrition and diets after surgery. Here's the link if you want to check it out: http://www.realself.com/weight-loss-surgery/info

Thanks Kirsty,
I am trying to get together everything I need for post op. I want to be prepared. I have already started taking vitamins on a regular basis so I can have them in my system and get use to a routine of taking them. I have the biotin for my hair, B12, multi Vit, and calcium, I was taking iron but they was making me constipated. May start back but not take them everyday

awww, thanks for the concer. yes those shakes are mad expensive and for you to have to then put it in a blender adn mix it with what works for you is horrible. i rathr drink muscle milk seriously. it's already pre-made and all i have to do is drink it. please and by far it is the lease expensive per case. i go to sams to to purchase by the case. i pay $24.99 for a case of 18. so it's not that bade so, i spend $50.00 for 36 already made shakes and all i have to do is just drink it, rather hold my nose and drink it. yea, i have like 4 doctors appointments this week. wth the cardio and pulminary doc and 2 primary doc. i always like to get 2nd opinions thats why i have 2 primary doc clearing me for surgury so if 1 does not clear me then here is a problem no to mention i want the pulminary and the cardio to clear me as well. i just want to make sure if i do decide to go throughh with this surgury i will be okay others than the normal pain and expectations. i want to make sure i am doing the right thing. in so many words.

I can certainly understand, especially with this being your first major surgery. Everything will go according to plan. You will have the best Dr in the room guiding the puppets which is God. I am going to check out Sam's club I've been meaning to get a membership anyway there anyway with all the household products I have to buy

lol, I am so glad i met someon who had a positive attitude about the whole situation. I agree let's stick together. lol Yes, the liguid diet it's going to be a time dont know how i am going to get through this one. I started buying muscle milk light. it was in my life before and after bariaric. it give you a list of all the do's and dont's and what to buy and what not to buy
  • Reply
I bought the muscle milk and I did not really like it. I thought it was hard to mix up even in a blender. So I have been sticking with slimfast. But i am going to explore other meal supplements shakes. I don't know if I am to make it through the liquid either. I don't have any choice, lol. I am excited for you May 8th....wow I can't wait for you...lol

Hey, i have some bad news well not really bad but i am in a changeing my mind mood. mostly because i just out the hospital with difficulty breathing . heart palpitations. i idi some testing and it came back negative for blood clauts or heart attack but i am so freaking scared know i dont know waht to do. muscle milk is not be mixed. it is already mixed u drink it straight. i bought muscle milk light it taste a littl;e better than the regular. i also bought slim fast but the nutrionist told me it had to much sugar in it so i did not drink iy. i bout slim fast, dr.atkins, and special k shakes but they were all to high in something or not enough something and the book i have life before and after baratric surgury specifically says do not drink those brands. so i do not know.
