  1. I’ve never had a full feeling that’s why I was concerned just my NUT said 2 bites of course I wasn’t thinking her two bites and mine weren’t the same lol. I’m using baby spoons. I’ve started measuring everything and never eat more than a 1/4 of a cup and sometimes stop before that if I get a tight feeling in my chest. Thanks everyone!
  2. I’m 2 weeks post op from gastric bypass? My NUT told me I’d probably only be able to eat 2 bites?!? I’m eating more than that. How do I know I’m full? I don’t want to screw up this whole process 😥
  3. Question about taking vitamins. Can’t call my surgeons office u til tomorrow and that’s when I am to start so wanted to get opinions off here. I had gastric bypass on August 1, my surgeon told me to start the vitamins this up coming week. I purchased the Pro Carr One a Day from the office. Am I suppose to take calcium as well? I also was told from another person who had this surgery to start hair skin and nails. Does anyone take that just 12 post op?

    Vitamins

    @Msdooloo ok I wasn’t sure if I was to start the calcium right away I couldn’t remember and couldn’t find it in any of my paper work.
  6. Any way to spice things up a bit lol. Broth jello and popsicles Are becoming very boring since that’s all I have had for 3 weeks almost. I’m not even hungry honestly but the hot dogs my kids are eating are making my mouth drool, and I don’t even like hot dogs 🤢 lol

    Liquid Diet

    Yes I have two protein shakes a day as well
  9. I have RNY bypass on Wednesday. The belching is about to make me insane no matter how small of sips I take I still belch constantly. TMI but they are very liquidity sounding. I have heard about other people using gas x strips. Would they help with the belching? I’m about to be insane, especially since I never ever belched pre-op.... :(

    Gas X

    Any other recommendations to help with the extreme belching. I’m still on clear liquids so not even eating food yet. It starts as soon as I get up and moving in the morning.
  11. I had rny bypass on August 1st. Came home from hospital yesterday afternoon. Trying hard to get all my liquids and protein in everyday. My stomach is making these loud rumbling noises, not like I’m hungry but it strange. Is that normal??

    August surgery ppl

    @YoBL congrats on your surgery! I had the RNY on Wednesday and I have to agree the gas pains are terrible!! I’ve been trying to walk as much as possible to get it all out. The belching is also awful which I assume is from the gas. Good luck with everything on your journey!

    Strange Noises

    Thanks. It seems to be louder when I walk too maybe that’s the gas trying to escape as well.

    Strange Noises

    August 2018 sleeve surgery!!

    @taystott I was able to come home yesterday afternoon. Getting the fluid is in def a hard thing to do. Did u have the sleeve or the rny bypass?

    August 2018 sleeve surgery!!

    I had my surgery Wednesday August 1st. I was very scared and nervous coming in that morning. My surgery took. While becuse I had some scar tissue from Where my gallbladder was removed several years ago. Over all I am doing amazing. Been drinking water and a protein shake last night. My only complaint is that drain they leave in after the bypass. It’s very uncomfortable, and will be ready to get that out hopefully Tuesday!

    August surgery ppl

    @badwolf523. U will do great, I had mine yesterday morning. Only pain I have is where the drain was left so any type of fluids will drain out. I had the X-ray which had to drink the barium it was nasty but thing were all good to start my liquids! Good luck you to!!
  18. My surgery is scheduled for Wednesday August 1st. Today was the start of my clear liquid diet, half way through the day and I feel amazing. Im getting very nervous about the surgery on Wednesday though, more scared than anything I guess. Anyone else feel this way right before?

    Getting nervous

    Today is the day! Didn’t really get much sleep last night, was anxious! 2 days for clear liquid diet on the books. I’m ready for today trying to stay positive and not be discouraged! Off to the hospital to get started!

    August surgery ppl

    I’m having bypass on August 1st. Just a few days away lots of mixed emotions.....anxious, scared, and excited all at the same time. Headed home from work to prep my bag for the hospital.
  22. I am having surgery on 8/1/2018. My surgeon requires a 2 day bowel prep before surgery. They stated that I can have sugar free koolaid, or crystal light. I was comparing packets and the cheap kool aid packets (.25 each) have 0 calories, carbs or anything else. Am I able to add Stevia to that instead of getting the "sugar free" koolaid that has other artificial sweeteners in it

    Bowel Prep

    Yes just the regular packets of Kool aid Not the sugar free ones
