I had vertical sleeve bariatric surgery on January 21st., 2015. I am post op 7 weeks now. On soft and regular foods. However I am having problems getting the foods down and have to wait at least 3 hours to drink water. It actually upsets my stomach. I weighed 297 when I started the pre surgery 2 week 1200 calorie diet. Pre surgery I was at 288. Now I weigh 254.8 lbs. However the last month I only lost 4 pounds. I couldn't get surgery earlier because I was over age limit in my area. Then I didn't have enough insurance, then didn't meet all criteria. My blood pressure wouldn't go down an stay down so then I found this place who excepted me for surgery. I had exercised a lot for 30 years with different clubs an groups an nothing including diets nor pills worked. I found this website on Google. The liquid diet wasn't bad but the 2 weeks post surgery was hard . Now at 7 weeks post op I am having a problem adapting to solid foods an meat. I can't seem to get it down barely at all. I have to wait actually 3_4 hours to drink at all. I have questions also.
