    Weight loss in first month

    26lbs the first month. My surgery was 8/28 and as of today I’m 60lbs down. My pouch is very restricted. Actually have to do an endoscopy stretching next month hopefully they can get me in sooner

    Post op 1 week with my menstral cycle.

    I got mine 3 days after surgery soon as I got home. And I was on blood thinners. Cramps plus incision pain OMG! Horrible but you’ll get through it. And hopefully you were sent home with pain killers.

    Anyone regretting this?

    My surgeon actually allowed me to go in during business hours when i got dehydrated instead of going to the ER. Now that I’m further out I can drink more water. Crazy part is my body didn’t like filtered water. Only thing I could keep down was ice faucet water. Which I NEVER drunk before surgery. Now that I’m 7 weeks out I can handle bottled water but i have to add lemon. I still prefer faucet water. It’s weird how everything changes. Take it one day at a time. Best of luck

    How do you know when your full?

    Thank u soooo much I’ll check out the recipes. I haven’t ate a lot of the solids because I’m afraid of what may happening.

    How do you know when your full?

    I’m never interested in food anymore lol I just eat because I know I have to. If i could I’d stick to shakes forever lol. And thank u i will reach out to my dr. He thought i might have a stricture but then said could be still swollen (2 weeks ago) Vomit stopped now it’s back again. I think I’m doing something wrong but I’d rather be safe than sorry

    How do you know when your full?

    Thank you all for responding! I don’t throw up every meal seems to be more at dinner time and i think they maybe when I’m the hungriest. But i notice the burping or gargling. I never thought that was a sign but now I will be more mindful.
  7. Hey guys and gals! So as of today I am 6 weeks post op. Per my Nut I can eat all foods at this point. What signs did you know you were full? I can’t tell. I am not eating a lot, it feels as though after a few bites it’s coming back up. Am I doing something wrong? I am still eating softer foods, like chicken (dark meat), tuna, eggs. I just would like for the throwing up to stop.

    Drain Tube Woes

    Omg it felt weird when he pulled it out (doesn’t hurt) but afterwards it was such a relief!

    Panic attacks over surgery

    I completely understand. I luckily had Xanax to calm my nerves. But my therapist suggested just going over why your having the surgery. Don’t let negative thoughts control you. The pain is temporary and the other part I won’t even mention. You will be fine. Congratulations

    Surgical drain

    I had a drain when I left the hospital I also had RNY. Was taken out at my 1 week postop appt. wasn’t that bad, it’s uncomfortable to sleep with. Taking a shower was challenging for sure! it felt funny when he took it out. It’ll be fine

    Aunt flo is killing me! Any advice?

    This is my second period since surgery and I’m HURTING! First probably not so much since i was in pain killers. I never had cramps or heavy flow this early on in period (day 1). What do you all use for pain? This liquid Tylenol is not helping and is this normal after surgery?

    Pasta and weight stall!!!! :o

    So i lost 18 lbs my first week, my doctor advised me not to be surprised if i only loose 5lbs max at my next weigh in. I ended up loosing 8 at my 3rd week appt. I would be fine with loosing 2/3 pounds a week. Just seeing the scale move in the opposite direction is amazing. Long as you are following the plan you will be fine. Good luck

    Last minute payment

    Most hospitals check with your insurance a day or so before surgery for the most up to date info. Is this your deductible or out of pocket max? I’m sorry this is happening to you.

    Choosing a surgery ...

    You will have an appetite, I’ve had the RNY and am hungry. However my body cannot handle much at this point. I’m very restricted

    Packing for Surgery

    Only thing I used while in the hospital was my chapstick (they provide some but I like the brand I buy) and my charger. What i wore to the hospital which was a slip on dress is what i wore home. I recommend bringing your own heating pad. It took my nurse forever to get one ordered. Good luck with everything
