  1. 11 pounds is great!!!! I'm sure you will be fine! Good Luck!
  2. I would call the number on your release instructions, you don't want to get dehydrated. I would start drinking water. Hope you are feeling well otherwise.

    Day 7

    I'm day 5 postop, still on liquids and my instructions say liquids for another week, then puree... it is interesting how the instructions vary post and preop. I'm just ready for mushy, soft food...
  5. I am on day 4 postop and have had a few cravings, but, I do not want to get sick. I still have the traveling gas that moves about inside my chest cavity and causes me to stop what I'm doing until it subsides, so painful. I have been drinking lots of water, no sugar tea, sf popcicles, sf jello.... I would love to have something like really mush soft refried beans, or mushy something.... but according to my instructions I still have a week to go on liquids. Honestly, not sure if I can make it another week without something mushy..... suggestions?? Please and thank you!
  6. I am on my 3rd day postop and wish I could say I didn't have much pain. Pain is better today but wow much more pain than I anticipated. the gas pressure in my chest has been terrible.....I've been taking my liquid pain meds and sleeping alot..... glad to know it gets better as each day passes.

    Just Had Surgery Oct 25

    I am getting banded tomorrow, from what I have read you won't feel very restricted until after your first fill. But sticking to the liquid diet and following the postop diet instructions is probably best. Good Luck in your journey!
