  1. It's exactly 2 months and 2 days since my surgery and I have lost 50 pounds. I'm worried I'm losing weight too fast or is this a normal pace? I am unable to eat much, sometimes nothing at all, but I don't feel hungry or tired. I'm on Multivitamin tablets. What are the dangers? Please advice. Going to doctor in a few days time.
  2. Please don't take it the wrong way, and I may be wrong... but that looks like a massive amount of food. Also, it doesn't look soft enough.
  3. @@Ken S.@@Alex Brecher The tickers for old posts are not updating once again. Also, the mobile android app continues to keep crashing. It was working fine for a few days after I sent my IP and all, but it's gone back to crashing at start up
  4. Also, is it normal for it to cost nearly $100 for a 3lb pack of isolate protein?
  5. Why is it important to take isolate Protein powder post op? What happens if the amount of protein intake is not the recommended 60 to 80g a day?

    Thank you everyone for the replies. Much appreciated.
  8. I am 15 days post surgery (sleeve gastrectomy) and here are some issues / questions I hope you can help me with: 1) For the first 2 weeks, I was on clear liquid diet. I lost 22 pounds/10 kg in the first one week but I stalled on day 8 and still am on stall. Is that normal? 2) My surgeon suggested I include "Isopure" Protein powder into my diet, 1.5 scoops in water/milk 2 times a day. Is it a good one, anyone else using it? 3) Can I eat scrambled eggs at this stage? I am sick of clear fruit juices. 4) Am I allowed to eat flaky well cooked fish? Please help.

  10. I am one week out post - op. Is it safe to switch to pills. The doctor seemed ok with it, but the head nurse of the hospital seemed to be of the opinion that i should crush them and mix it in Water which tastes like feet. I would of course go by my doctor's advise but just wondering if anyone's had bad experiences taking pills right after gastric sleeve. I've been prescribed medications like ursodeoxycholic acid for gall stones calcitriol, Calcium carbonate and zinc multi Vitamin pills (I was taking syrup for a week) hypertension medication (pills)
  11. @@missricki Me too. But I think the docs aren't gonna allow weight training until after a month or two I think.
