  3. Hello Everyone! I've never had a sleeping problem even before surgery, BUT now I seem to have developed one. I always slept on my tummy, it's so comforting and of course after surgery I had to adapt sleeping on my back and struggled getting any sleep. It got to the point were I had to drink more of my medicine in order to knockout. I tried sleeping side ways with tons of pillows and made it somewhat better so that was my go to position most of the time. When I was 3 weeks out I tested sleeping on my tummy and there was no discomfort, I believe tears of joy came out LOL Monday 9/19/16 was the first night I tried sleeping on my tummy and I kept waking up between 2am and 4am. I woke up so shocked and confused. I also kept having nightmares, surreal feeling nightmares. this has been going on for 4 days now. I feel like I'm on an ongoing never ending loop. its creepy. So I guess my question is, has anyone experienced any discomfort after surgery or anything unusual/different with sleep? because this girl is freaking out!

      I had to wait for 3 months I think? I bought some CHIKE protein' powder and it cured a bit of the cravings. It's coffee flavored, and along with some SF syrup and ice, it tasted like a frappacino. It did the job and helped me meet my protein; requirements, too.

      Agreed. The mocha and coffee flavors of Chike protein powder are outstanding.

      @Christinamo7 aw, I'm sorry to hear that. I hate being sick. Especially while your body is trying to repair itself.

    Constantly Cold?

    I feel that way too! I hear it's because of how low our Iron is now. Kind Regards, Jenn

    How long did you stay out of work

    I went back 4 days later. I did feel sore but that's about it. I felt back to normal 3 weeks out. I think me being active and walking around made the healing process faster. Staying in bed or at home longer than a week would drive me crazy. Kind Regards, Jenn

      I use Unjury. I like to sprinkle the chicken soup flavor powder on anything savory.

      Quest has been my favorite for years.

      I liked all the Quest flavors as well..........as far a pre-mixed, the EAS low carb were good too. I also enjoyed the Unjury chicken soup flavor....it really helped when I got sick of sweet!

    Did you tell people?

    I only told my sister, my best friend and my other friend who got the same sleeve done. My mom was the last person who i would tell. She is very judgmental and such a gossip girl. when i go over she does wonder how im loosing weight so fast but i give her the same "diet & exercise" bone. i feel the less you tell people, the less they monitor you. my friend said when he told his coworkers, all they did was monitor what he ate like if they were all nutritionist. i feel like people will also judge you. i had this incident happen to me a week ago. I went to my friends house after work to catch up. as i walk in to her house, im looking for her and she gets excited when she sees me, so we hug and i notice a lady sitting at the dinning table. i whisper "whos that?" "oh she does my nail refill bi-weekly after work" i look back at her, smile and wave hello. she literally disregards me and walks by to say shes leaving. i didn't know what her problem was so i just made myself at home and grabbed a drink. thinking she was gone i went looking for my friend. she was still talking to the rude lady at the door, as i turn around i started coughing really bad, i was 2 weeks out, and took a big gulp without thinking. my friend quickly turned around and panicked asking if i was okay and i was assuring her that i was fine. the rude lady acted like she cared and asked her what was going on. my friend accidently told her "oh no she okay, she just cant take big sips her tummy is small" i looked at her so mad. everything gets awkward and the rude lady says "wow people who get that surgery are ridiculous" maaaaan i jumped back at her too quick "people that don't know what they're talking about are ridiculous, you don't know the struggle of trying to be fit and trying to better yourself, you don't know how this surgery changes peoples habits for the better, so if you don't know what the f*ck you're talking about just shut the f*ck up" she gets annoyed and storms off. that day i learned to keep my business on the low. a lot of people wont understand.

      I'm 3 years out from my RNY and I still have a hard time with meat. I eat alot of beans. Chili Beans, Pinto beans I am just so happy I love beans. I eat Split Pea soup also cheese and refried beans also. I am now able to have tortilla's so I have a low carb burrito with cheese green taco sauce and a little sour cream. There are so many different types of beans. I also make some Taco soup with kidney beans chickpeas and some spices it is yummy and pretty soon the weather will be just right for soups.
