Well, it’s been almost exactly 7 months since my surgery. This morning, I stepped on the scale (like I do everyday) and I was one pound under my goal weight! I stood there, and just stared at th

I just had an appointment with my Dr, and he is concerned that I am not able to eat enough calories in a day. I am still only able to eat very small amounts of food (3-1/2 months post op). I also am unable to tolerate raw vegetables or any dense prote

Hi all. I have been seriously craving chocolate! Does anyone have any good ideas to help satisfy this craving without adding too many calories? My chocolate protein shake is not doing the trick.

I’m 2+ weeks out from surgery, and my surgeon just gave me the ok to move to soft foods. I was so excited to eat actual food that I overdid it! Nothing bad for me (veggies and ground chicken), but I ate too much. I am in so much pain right now! I

Hi all! I’m one week post op, and am feeling really great. Most of my pain is gone, and I am able to walk as much as I like. Also, I can drink water really well...I’m up to about 80 0z per day. The thing is...I am hungry! I’m supposed to star

Hi Everyone. I'm new to this forum, and I have my surgery scheduled for tomorrow. I'm a bit nervous because I have never had surgery before. But, I'm excited about the future. Any words of advice for someone who is just starting this journey?
