    camopink27 got a reaction from FluffyChix in How much weight loss by 4 months post op sleeve?   
    Great advice. Thank you, I’m down 72 pounds and May 8th will be my 4 month mark. It must be all in my head because I feel like I’m not where I should be. I’m starting to see that my weight issues are truly a mental thing. I am strictly sticking to the plan and doing everything I should, just was curious where others were.

    The diet varies based on the need to the surgeon and patient
    Surgeons like to shrink the liver to have greater visibility during laproscopic surgeries in the abdomen. Livers in obese people ate larger usually due to a condition called fatty liver. To reduce the size your body must go into ketosis (fat metabolism) and the liquid diets speed this up. That being said I did not require a liquid diet prior to the two days before where almost everyone goes only on Clear Liquids.

    My doctor only recommended a 2wk post op liquid diet, but allowed me to proceed to the next stage 10 days after surgery. It all depends on the surgeon/doctor and how they run their program. Honestly, I don't know if there is a difference.

    This is still an evolving field, So different programs use different best practices and data. Some have very restrictive post surgery diets and others don't. Generally the purpose post op is to give you time to heal and minimize complications. Many programs also track their own data, so if they find one approach gives better results (more loss, fewer complications) then they will tweak their recommendations. You can ask a program about their statistics, which is enlightening. For example my specific program sees better than national averages in terms of loss from the sleeve, but really limits carbs VS others.

    Ugh read the post wrong and responded incorrectly...
    It's usually based on each person's progress and that particular surgeons comfort level progressing patients through the stages

    Everything is going fine, I do have ALOT of gas pains, but am walking and moving a lot. Didn’t get fluids in yesterday (day of surgery) but today I am but after I sip I get a pain right below the middle of my breasts. It’s like a cramping feeling, is this gas pain?

    Congratulations on getting to the other side! Mine went pretty smoothly yesterday but I agree, the gas was worst part. Feeling a little too god after pain meds I also ended up drinking too much broth and Water and now I know they mean by filling up your sleeve too fast! Very painful. I found walking while circling or flapping your arms helped the gas too.
    Hang in there everybody it should keep getting better from here

    That’s exactly how I was right after surgery. They tried to get me to eat a red popsicle and drink some red Powerade. I threw it up. Looked like blood and I freaked out! Funny now, wasn’t funny then! Glad you did well!

    If sipping doesn't work tell your surgeon. You may be developing a stricture or similar issue. If that's the case it can often be resolved with an endoscopy. Assuming you're not drinking within 30 minutes or more of eating?

    I was sleeved on the same day. Had the same problem.
    I solved it by constantly sipping all day. Just little tiny sips but all day. Surgeon told me I was drinking too fast thats why I had chest pain. Since carrying my Fluid everywhere and just skipping on it no more issues.

    I was sleeved 12/19. When I got out of the hospital I was doing really good with my Water and Protein intake. I was really close to 64 oz a day and 60mg of protein. I feel like this past week I took two steps back. Every time I drink water I get a knot in my chest and I can’t drink anymore until that feeling goes away . Protein is even worse. What is happening? I feel like I’m getting dehydrated and I’m starting to worry. I’m pushing as much water down as possible but I can barely get 16-32 oz (32 oz on a really good day ) Protein hardly any. I feel like it wants to come back up ! Help.

    Yep. I think that’s gas pain. I’ve been having that too since my surgery. I can say that it doesn’t happen with every sip and I keep reminding myself to sip smaller and slower.

    The above poster has it right. Maybe you could get some unflavored Protein Powder to add to your broth if that is all you are able to tolerate. It would be a way to increase your Protein intake.

    Yay!!! I'm tomorrow too, 12:09pm (so exact lol). Pre-op nurses said staying on top of pain is the best thing I can do to help myself heal. They said aim to not get above a 4. We spoke about nausea too and they said they would get me some meds before I even went to recovery and I said good. Lol.
    And I agree with being your own advocate with pain. They got behind on my meds with my c-section and it was the most horrible pain of my life. I'll never let that happen again.
