    Pureed foods

    So tomorrow I can eat pureed foods. I am so ready for it. I do have a couple of questions though. How much food should I fix? I have really had no major issues with full liquids. I'm worried I won't know when I'm too full. Also, any suggestions for easy things to grab at the store would be appreciated. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App

  7. I was sleeved on the 16th as well. I am having no problems with drinking. Some liquids cause my stomach to protest a tiny bit but not really too painful. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App

    Just curious

    So, I had my sleeve on the 16th. I am still on liquids. Things are going well. I'm not having any issues getting Protein or fluids in. Which has me kind of curious. When I get to the next stage how will I know I'm full because right now I'm beginning to feel a little hunger. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App

    Just curious

    Nothing special really. Just sugar free hot chocolate and I add gene pro flavorless Protein powder to it. It is a tablespoon=30 grams. I also can tolerate Isopure fruit punch diluted with the diet ocean spray cranberry juice. I have other isopure flavors I haven't tried to "mix" yet because I can't find what I did with the stupid bottles, lol. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App

  13. Just wondering what is included. I cannot seem to stomach the shakes anymore. All of a sudden they leave a terrible taste in my mouth. I tried cream of chicken and wasn't that impressed although I could tolerate if need be. Just wandering if there is anything else. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App

    Busy day today

    When I lose my weight I want to stop in the local McDonald's and Taco Casa to gethe an unsweetened ice tea just to see if the workers know me. I was in there so much they knew me by name. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App
  15. I'm beginning to think I don't have a clue what I am doing. I am on a full liquid diet and I keep reading post from other places saying you will know when you are full but I really can't tell. I've been drinking a lot. At least I think I have. I had about 30 Oz of Powerade zero, 1 banana cream premier shake, abut 8 Oz skim milk that I added Protein powder to. I walked around 4 acres two times today aiming for 3 but was so tuckered out I couldn't do the 3rd. I rested. I went to Walmart in search of anything besides shakes to break up the monotony and was there about 15 minutes and started feeling weak. When I got home I had the milk with protein and sat on the couch and drank it. I decided to get my shower but half way through I started getting shaky and weak feeling. So I hurried up and got out. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I don't feel full. I'm trying to make sure I'm not dehydrated. Isn't the shakes considered liquid. Are they your meals? Am I not supposed to drink 30 minutes before or after them? I do not want to mess up my stomach and stretch it by accident. Also, I had diarrhea today so completely on the other spectrum than I was yesterday. I'm scared that other people say they can barely eat and I can't tell anything.

    Medication

    I was told after my surgery I could resume my medication I took before hand. But I'm scared about taking a couple of them. I am supposed to take these Omega 3 Ester capsules (softgels) and literally they look like horse pills. I'm scared to take them. The rest of the medicines are fairly small. I don't think I would be able to poke a hole in it. I doubt I would be able to gag it down. Any thoughts? Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App

    On my way!

    On my way to the hospital. I pray I'm making the best choice. I researched for a long time. I'm kind of nervous but I guess that should be expected. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App

    On my way!

    They gave me anti-nausea med in my iv as well as a patch behind my ear. I didn't have a lot of nausea per second but found myself having that feeling that I was going to be sick a few times. I managed to take deep breaths and control it. I didn't want to throw up. I struggled getting liquids down especially on the 2nd day post op. I feel better today so I'm hoping to get more down.

    Hiccups

    Sugar free stuff

    Ok, I do one problem with the recommended diet post op and just thought I would ask. My doctor's office recommends switching to sugar free stuff, margarine, etc. My problem is this. Having children with autism I have had to dive deep into the things that make up our foods. A lot, and I mean a lot, of the things recommended are filled with chemicals, cancer producing things, and are worse for you than the real thing. I have changed some of these things in their diet and have noticed improvements in behavior. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App
  25. So, what is the hardest part for you? I am doing the liquid pre-op diet. I do OK until evening time then I get really hungry. I know I've already lost weight though. Getting sleeved in the 16th. Sent from my SM-N900T using the BariatricPal App
