Wondering if anyone would like to share their journey getting pregnant within a few months post op from the VSG surgery? How did the weight loss work while growing a baby? Did you still notice your body changing? Did you lose weight after the baby was born? Thank you!· 0 replies

Hi Everyone, I`m new to the group. I`m having my gastric sleeve done on March 9th, 2021.... is there still a chatroom on this site? I`d really love to chat with some folks.· 2 replies
Hello and welcome, no chat room but the forums are quite busy from there you might connect with someone and message privately.
I may sound crazy but I need to know how to gain a little weight back after gastric bypass I’m to small and can’t stop losing· 1 reply
My guess would be to add calorie dense food such as nuts, good fats, etc...but you may get a better response or a more tailored respone from the main boards https://www.bariatricpal.com/discover/unread/?&stream_unread_links=1&stream_classes[IPS\forums\Topic]=1
Yesterday was my post op check up with the surgeon and it went well. He is happy with my progress and I don't need to see him for 6 months. I'm at day 17 post op and the only real issue I have had is severe constipation. Warning, TMI coming up.....· 1 reply
So I have been number twos three times since surgery. Twice it was tiny, third time was just an absolute crisis. Crying, sweating, it was right there....just so horribly hard and dry. I had to get pessaries and take Coloxyl. Holy crap (pardon the pun) when she finally made it through, she was a stubby whopper. I drink 2 litres a day, I have stopped taking the protein powder and don't take huge amounts of multi vitamins. I am on puree now so having weetbix (an Australian/NZ breakfast biscuit) and veges for lunch and dinner. I am going to look for some tea that helps with the issue, I simply can't go through that again. It was two days ago and I still feel bruised. I am not exercising much so will need to increase that too, I just don't want to be taking laxatives as a habit.
Aside from that my only bug bear is the draw to the scales every day. I'm going to get my hubby to remove them and hide them from me and only weigh once a week to ensure I'm staying on track. I'm still seeing losses all the time, but I'm becoming so focused on that I forget that the scales are only one part of the journey, my wellbeing is the other.
My son and his fiance are coming up from Melbourne this weekend and arrive tomorrow. I haven't seen them both since Covid and I've missed them terribly. I have some fun things organised, but I just can't wait to hug my first born and tell him how much I love him.
Happy Friday-eve from down under.
I had a very similar experience. Twice. It was awful and a bit traumatizing, frankly. I thought I was going to have to take Miralax everyday for the rest of my life, but I can happily say that being 5.5 months out, things are fairly regular and I haven't had to take Miralax in over a month. I always make sure to get plenty of water, which has helped. Exercise will definitely help you in that department, too. Even just getting a walk in everyday will be good for your bowels.
Wish you the best on your journey!
I only idled around my new flat both yesterday and today and on Friday evening instead of studying. Hubby says one needs a break once in a while. Problem is, I can't afford this break atm. Three days of not-studying is a no-go so I'm going to look at some material tonight. If I wouldn't be feeling so damn tensed and tired these days... but things are just like they are.· 0 replies
