2 weeks post op
Apr 14, 2011
Well it's been almost 2 weeks and though I questioned my choice immediately after waking up that day I am soo happy I have embarked upon this wonderful journey. I have to say I was amazed at how the liver shrinking diet went and I lost 27 lbs prior to surgery (would you believe they said that's okay!? ~ I thought they would have been thrilled ...I know I was). My surgeon said he had someone lose 50lbs during that stage ~ WOW !! Anyhow I am having a little pain in my stomach where the port is at but am told that is to be expected, and I officially down 40lbs now and am getting ready to start the soft mushy phase. I am hardly ever hungry but am also excited about eating something I can chew again~ just an fyi ...I personally found the premium protein shakes available at sam's club in my town a great choice for a protein supplement (has 30 grams of protein per drink with the same 160 calories as most others with only half the protein). Thanks to all who have supported and encouraged me and may I pass that blessing(s) on to those that I may support and help.
