Day 4 of pre-op liquid diet

Jun 12, 2010

The scale says that i've lost 7 lbs. since starting the pre-op diet. I'm very happy about that. This is the beginning of the rest of my life!  I feel so much better now, actually feel as though I'm doing pretty well with the liquids.  I definitely have so much more energy.  I'm definitely counting down the days to surgery, I can't wait.

Day 2 of pre-op liquid diet

Jun 10, 2010

Just thought I might want to get this down so that I never forget my experience on this journey.  Today is day 2 of my liquid diet .
Yesterday in the afternoon I started to develop a headache which progressed the rest of the day. By the time I got home from work, I had chills, was very shaky and nauseated, vomiting soon followed. I slept most of the evening and night.  Today, I woke up nauseated and fought to drink some decaf green tea. Can't even imagine drinking a protein shake right now.. took some compazine hoping it would help, and it did a little.  Talked to my surgeon's office, they assured me that I must have had a virus because what I was experiencing, was not typical (not sure I believed her).  Taking some SF popsicles and doing better, although I did come home from work early to rest.  I will try some broth for lunch and hope for the best!  Going to have to get some protein in today, but am not looking forward to drinking a shake. (ugh)
