    I'm sorry to hear that you had to have surgery but WHOO HOO for no more gallbladder! I had to have emergency surgery to have mine removed and I have to say, I'm really glad it's gone. For something to hardly have a purpose, it almost killed me.

    For nausea, I know you do not want a prescription but dissoluble Zofran is the only thing that helps me. Ginger Ale and Saltines help but it only goes so far. With fats - you are going to struggle for the first few weeks after surgery. Everything is either going to hurt or go right through you but your body will eventually start digesting it a different way and it will not bother as much as it does now. Go light on the dairy and fried foods. Pump up on protein and veggies emoticon Keep us updated!! emoticon

    OMG girl!! i was watching ur vlog and as you are talking i starting feeling sick, remembering my own surgery in early 2013 when i had no insurance and had to get my appendix removed and ended up with an infection...UGH do i know how u are feeling!! Glad to hear about the part time, hopefully it gives u an opportunity to move forward. glad to also know that you are now doing well overall. Hadn't seen u in a bit, but yay to coming back. I always feel support on here. I can't help you with the lowfat or the nausea stuff, even the pills i have been given for it don't help me, people say to suck on a lime or lemon helps...Hope u have a good one! :)

    Glad to hear you're recovering nicely. At least you had your cute dog I saw in the background to cuddle with when you were sick. Sorry, can't help with the nausea but I would suggest taking prescription nausea pills to get over this hump. I took them once after an elective surgery and it really helped.

    Glad you have a job that you are excited about. Be well and hope you vlog soon. You have such a pleasant and endearing personality and very pretty to look at as well.

    That must have been scary. I am so glad you are alright. I have a lot of nausea too because of diverticulitis and I still have yet to find something that works for that. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    Hope you feel better!
