    Shoulder Pain

    I paced around the house. That helps move the gas and on the up side a little bit of exercise. I'm struggling today with it I'm back in the truck so I'm doing limited movements.

    Good work mummapos. I picked up another batch of soup from mums. I've stocked up on yoghurt and I'm back to work tomorrow off on a 3 day trip hopefully all goes well. Good luck with with recovery zen

    Delicious smoothie recipe

    Just made this one this morning as I was getting sick of protein shakes. And yummo I swapped the mango for frozen strawberries. Picked me up almost straight away.

    No worries Zendaya I think taking the photos is a great idea that way if you ever have a bad week you can always go back and compare. So I'm down 4kg since Thursday the gas is giving me troubles but I'm going to head out and get some degassing tablets today hopefully that will stop it.

    I got given maxolin but that's for nausea. I'm heading out today I might look at some but at this point in time the gas has subsided. Just taken some photos might have to post them up

    Morning mumma poss. Did you manage to get some sleep, I was up and down all night. I think I'm full of gas it feels like reflux or something. Other than that I'm surprised at how well I'm feeling. My fiance is looking after me perfectly. Might try some thin soup today

    So just spoke to the nurse I'm able to leave now. Not bad considering I was supposed to stay overnight. My shoulder pain has gone and I have a very minor bit of pain in my stomach. So excited I'd rather be at home than in hospital

    I'm a bit lucky I work away so when I'm in the truck it's really easy I've found my water intake has doubled but I think that's just my own doing to take away the hunger sensation. I've found it hard at home with temptation I gave myself one cheat night where I was able to have a nice lean piece of salmon. I don't mind the optifast I grabbed the vanilla and strawberry the strawberry is by far a better taste. Once my surgery is complete and after the 5 days I'm back at work so because I'm on the road and alot of the food options are not able to be prepared I will be extending my week 2 fluid diet in to the 3rd week as well and then moving on to week 4 which is the soft diet.

    Good morning guys and gals. Just read through all your comments and wow looks like everybody is excited, I am going in for the band on thursday 13th at Hollywood hospital and doctor dolan is doing the op. I've been on opti for 9 days so far an have lost 6kgs. I'm a little bit on the the lighter side currently sitting at 124kg but I decided to get the band as a lifestyle change was needed. Hopefully I should get to around 95kg. Hope everyone that has been in for the band is doing well and for those that are still waiting good luck, I know I can't sleep I'm way to excited.
