I'm just 7 weeks out from RNY and have been introducing 'regular' food to my diet for about 2 weeks. I've had several bouts of what I have learned is called "the foamies". Nasty painful stuff, good learning tool because no one wants to r

I'm taking just a moment to toot my own horn. We had a family birthday party for a little one to attend tonight. I'm on day 4 of my liquid pre-op diet.

I'm so excited! I got my desired surgery date,

March 26th!

Started my liquid diet NOW. I'll actually have 13 days rather than the 14 my surgeon prefers but he was good with it. The next date available wasn't until April 23rd, really g
