      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!

      im 2 weeks intomy gastric sleeve and i wanted to know is it normal to feel really hungry and crave the bad foods?

        Totally normal for a lot of people. What you do next is what matters.

        I am 2 weeks out as of today. Surgery was 10/29. And I have felt super duper hungry and craved food, and then hated food and didnt want any. No real middle ground. sigh. I got to officially start pureed foods today and have made the most of it by having things that I formerly enjoyed eating like cottage cheese, eggs with cheese on them, and simple tuna, mayo, and spices. While the food was heaven, now I get to learn how to be satisfied with 4 bites. sigh again. Seriously, it's not really eating and I will still need to supplement my food with protein drinks.... heh or basically supplement my protein drinks with food as the case may be. Also, eating soups and now real foods has thrown me into a stall. So I am resentful and feel petty and irritated and would just like to lose weight again now. Its even difficult to get all the water in if I eat real food. The juggling is irritating, and the struggle is real! lol. Seriously, I am totally annoyed and feel pretty miserable. Though at least eating real food def seems to solve my feeling hungry problem. That **** sits in my stomach like a weight.

        Ok now that I have ranted about your issue, I shall crawl back into the hole I crawled out of today lol.

        Oh, while I am complaining, it snowed today... actually snowed in November in Oklahoma. We dont OWN heavy coats here so I dunno if I will even be taking my walk outside tonight, which I LOVE. Boo.
