    At one week post op (really for the first couple months) I was told to focus on Protein and liquids. Was not given a calorie range but I was at around 600-700 for the first month then 600-800 for months 2 & 3. Hope that helps.

    You were pumped full of fluids in the hospital. Be patient, it will happen.

    You can eat that NOW. But let me tell you. Your anatomy WILL mature. And you will find that bread, crackers, chips, et al WILL act like slider foods and go straight down your gullet without making you feel full. And since you didn't bother to break the habit while it was "easy" and you had your restriction, you will suffer. And will end up trying to "diet" while still continuing to push the rock uphill--rather than taking this time to divorce yourself from the problem foods that got you fat in the first place.

    I'm here to tell you that if at 10weeks, you can ALREADY handle getting all your Protein in from food, AND get some veg in, AND eat carby bread? You need to go talk to your doc and RD. Cuz you've got big trouble in River City.
    Also this is your HONEYMOON PERIOD. Seriously.
    Don't squander the fu*k out of it by going back to the foods that got you all the way to the Obesity Ball the first time!!! Dude! Serious rationalization going down in your head. Own it. Change it. Or be potentially doomed to experience never reaching goal, and regaining your weight.
    The End.
    Live well.

    toodlerue got a reaction from Frustr8 in Headaches   
    I too had headaches around this time frame. I added some electrolytes (sorta like Gatorade). Helped some. But some days the only way I made it through was with a Norco.
    I also had a RNY for failed Nissen.

    The shoulder pain is from the gas that was used to blow up your abdomen during the surgery. Some surgeons are better at getting the gas out then others.
    My pain lasted for 3 weeks! It was horrible. I used heat & a tens unit. The pain meds didn’t really help.

    Just curious, what sort of things were in the diet pack that you don’t agree with?
    It sounds like you have been paying attention to your body and know it very well. Share your concerns with your nutritionist & trust that they will listen.

    I get Water just to make the server feel good. They can’t believe someone wouldn’t even want a glass of water with their meal.
    My daughter and I both Had a RNY this year. I love Going out to eat because we can share a meal. We got a 6oz steak this week at Black Angus. It was the perfect size for us to share.
