congrats patty!!!!! you've done great.. and you'll probably be allowed to have a nice bath after your stitches are out. can't help you with the bra thing... we lap folks just put our bras on and fled the hospital!!!
and about the protein shake... hmmmmm?????? thanks deb!!!!
and patty.. more details.. how long was the surgery?? anything interesting happen? how's the family handling it????
LEANNA... here's a thought about eating out... FISH IS YOUR BEST FRIEND. HONEST. easier to handle postop. and although you are now officially on the 'for life' diet, there's doing what you're allowed to do, and doing what you can manage. chicken that's been in places you've never imagined possible may not be what you could manage. but a piece of broiled fish [like flounder] wont' usually let you down.
and some high protein soup. just eat the meat and vegs and leave the broth. 8 weeks isn't a long time here. maybe your system just isn't ready for some things., oh. and many MANY wls people i know can't eat chicken at all, especially not the breast. dark meat is moister and goes down more easily. now, before someone says that dark meat has more calories, it also has more b vitamins, and for heaven's sake.. how much are we gonna eat here??? you'll be lucky to get through a thigh joint!!!!!
