  1. Sugar free ice pops, chicken broth helps too. There’s a clear protein drink that’s 20 grams of protein i had to water it down it’s super sweet to me. You can make your own broth with chicken and veggies too, just strain it. I’m better, but it wasn’t fun in the beginning. Things still don’t taste right to me but today I was so happy to finally drink a whole cup of coffee. I didn’t have to drink decaf after I went to full liquids. I actually like Peets decaf it helped me that week I had to. Once I started eating more food I wasn’t as tired anymore, thank goodness. I would sit and just fall asleep like I had narcolepsy. 😂😂. You can’t drink Premier Protein? I hated whey protein though and I used to like it. I want to try it in the blender with peanut butter powder and half a banana. Someone know said it’s good so I’ll give it a shot. Every day is better. Just remember sip sip sip and keep moving. I felt almost normal by The end of the fourth week. I had 16 here for Thanksgiving, too!
  2. Thank you! I’m hope I’m like you!
  3. I know not sure if what I had was dumping (I’ve had the “foamies”) but I get it with leftover meats (chicken, roasted pork) I think because the meat dries. I thought I chewed enough but it sat in my chest like a brick and all of a sudden, I started burping and up the foamy mucus came. It’s nothing like regular vomiting. I now reheat with a little broth and that seems to help.
  4. Honestly, it was rough in the beginning — constipation and really bad gas pains (nothing from the surgery). Once I got that figured out and passed the two week mark it got better every day. And when I added more foods and being able to walk a little and not being tired all the time, it’s been a blessing. Good luck to l look forward to hearing your progress! And message me if you want. 💗

    Any October 2021 Surgeries?

    Wow I still can’t walk much but will when I go back to the office next week. I moved to soft foods a few days earlier too and it got stuck but go slowly. I finally am officially on all solids now and am nervous what to eat.

    My friend who had RNY said the trick was to wait two hours minimum before trying something sweet and only two bites max. That has worked for me so far.

    I’m not a fan. I just ordered Monkfruit I heard good things about it.

    I’ll be 1 mo post op and my nutritionist said to take a teaspoon of whatever I want from the table, put it on my plate, and start with the protein. Im sure I won’t get through it all but just being able to taste if I want to will help. I’m making a sugar free pumpkin cheesecake too and hope to be able to have a bite of that too. Im not much of a sweet eater but I do miss it at the holidays. I copied this picture that someone posted on FB and I think it will work for me.

    That’s awesome I’m so happy. I know thr first three weeks were rough. I progressed to soft/solids and I feel so much better, too!

    I know the first two weeks are bad. Have you tried taking smaller bites and putting down your fork in between? It made the difference for me. My surgery was 10/25

    Hi Donna! I had to speak to the nutritionist on Thursday — she put me on a vitamin regimen and gave me the protocol for purée and soft foods. Maybe just starting from the beginning is all you need. 💕💐

    Constipated HELP!!

    Ok I had this issue (I’m 2 weeks out today). How I solved it was Milk of Magnesia during the day and Miralax at night plus 2 stool softeners and you’ll start going. Plus all the water. It will start. Finally yesterday morning I went like pre-surgery and I think I turned the corner. I’m only doing 2 softeners now. Feel better it will work!
  16. Are you on FB? There’s a bariatric support group for NYC. Good luck!

    I’m 5 days post op and having issues drinking and pooping (not to mention super gassy). I’m trying to go slow but I’m only at 12 oz protein shakes and @ 1 liter of Smartwater.
  19. I’m 62 and scheduled tomorrow. I know it’s not going to be easy but it’s better than feeling the way I do now. Good luck to you!

    My surgery is happening at 2:45 on Monday — I wish mine was that early! They even told me not to bring a suitcase I’ll be leaving in 24 hours! I wish you only the best, too and a speedy recovery! Yes that’s the best WW quote. I lost 50 lbs with them and that’s it. Now I’ll lose the rest so I can walk and do things again. I’m only 62 not 100! Message me next week!

    People say to use a heating pad. I pulled mine out of the closet for next week!

    Wow Mammysm, you’ve been through it all! You are the first person I know that is having SADI! I have a friend who is almost ready for the DS. I haven’t been great with my liquid diet but I’m hoping my lower BMI will help it. My old house (which we care for meticulously) decided to act up this week (blown outlet and for extra fun a HEATING OIL LEAK INSIDE THE HOUSE!) This is my last try. My RNY is scheduled and I’m 62 and so tired of not being able to move without being in pain. you at least know how to do this so remember you can! Third time’s the charm, remember? 💗

    1990 RNY revision at age 73

    Thank you for posting about your journey. I suspect my friend had a similar procedure 30 years ago but she refuses to look at a revision. I have tons of positive thoughts for you and this next part of your life! I’m 62 and my RNY is on 10/25. I can’t wait for the next part of my life to start!
  25. I’m 62 and will be having bypass surgery on 10/25. I’m so happy for this next chapter to begin.
