  1. Using a straw helped me so much. My favorite drink has been lemonade Isopure. It tastes good and has tons of protein!
  2. Technically regular coffee was okay on my plan after 7 weeks, but my surgeon okayed it after 4 weeks and I didn't have a problem.
  3. Good thing you caught it when you did! Get well soon!
  4. I get them at GNC, although I have a hard time finding them in stores sometimes. I just ordered a few cases online when they were having their buy one get one half off sale. It brought the price down and I don't have to troll every GNC store in my area for at least another month or two!
  5. I have the same problem. I have a very hard time tolerating anything sweet after surgery. I've been drinking Lemonade Isopure. It is still sweeter than I would like, but it is tart enough to balance it out.
  6. That at least in the very beginning, everyday is a learning experience that comes with new challenges and new victories. Be prepared to roll with the punches and adjust accordingly!
  7. Surgery went well! I am 6 days post op and I feel pretty good. Still a little sore, but I am sure that is to be expected. Dreading two more full weeks of liquids. Thank you everyone for your advice and support!
  8. I had surgery on 7/28 and would also love to connect with anyone who is interested!
  9. My surgery is in three days. For those of you that have gone through this journey already, what is one piece of advice you would have given your pre-op self?
