Congratulations. I had my surgery on Jan27 and have lost 75 lbs so far. It is amazing. You don't have to worry abt food for awhile post surgery, I wasn't at all hungry for the first month or so. Then, when you do feel like eating, your protein drinks will really fill ypu up (I recommend Champion Whey Stacker; it mixes like juice and isn't grainy.) After a few months, you will start to be able to eat a little of things. I moved to PR July 2nd and I have been able to eat a little chucharones, mofongo, arroz con gandules, churasco, etc, but find that after a bite, I am pretty satsfied. I don't even order dinner, I just pick off my kid's plates and husbands and maybe eat 1/2 a house salad or something. Good luck. This week will suck (that's why we call it hell week), but I have no regrets and neither will you. Felicidades!
