WHO said This was the EASY way out??? Post op Day 4

Ok my bloggie buddies, I'm Home from San Diego and what a journey, I dont even know where to begin, I had some complications and severe nausea and vomiting, and at one point they were talking transfusion due to my Gall Bladder? Sooo Whoever on Gods green earth ever says this is the EASY way out, I Will punch their lights out and I am not a violent person! I thought I'd have less pain Post of day 4, but not so much maybe because of drain? not sure. But I have lost 6LBS whooot whooot. So I will post a more detailed oriented post when I can sit for more than 10 mins at a time. In the mean time I'm on Clear liquid diet for 2 weeks with protein drink as well, what did you guys love as a clear liquid??? Let me know:P



  1. I had full liquids rather than clear once I was home, and practically lived off Imagine soups... they are creamy (but not cream OF) and come in a number of flavors. I loved the broccoli best, and I've made it a regular part of my diet.

    The best part of liquid diets for me is icy pops. I use the natural fruit pops, but a lot of people swear by sugar free popsicles.

  2. I did a lot of beef broth...chicken occasionally but I liked beef the best...Hope you feel better soon...it was quite a few days before I started feeling better as well so just hold on and you will get there...lol

  3. You can do this! I've been there too. I basically lived on chicken broth, clear liquid/acceptable protein drinks, and jello. Not great, but it does get better.

    I'm with you! After a whole year, it's still not the "easy" way out. The good news is . . . it does get easier to deal with.

  4. I don't remember doing a clear liquid phase, but I'm sure that it would have been chicken broth and beef broth... gatorade... things like that. Hang in there - it will get easier!
