    No weight loss since surgery!

    Be sure to measure yourself! It took me 8 days post-op to even get back down to surgery-day weight, but I had lost several inches.

    If you wear your abdominal binder it should be OK, and it will help you feel more secure as well......

    Favorite non scale victory

    I have two! 1. My jawline has re-appeared, first photo is from three weeks post-op, second is from January this year. 2. My chronic cough is GONE! I blamed my allergies but apparently it was from the hiatal hernia that they repaired. This is EPIC!

    Immediate Weight Loss

    Be sure to take you measurements. I finally got to surgery day weight day 8 post-op, but I had lost two inches at the waist and hips.

    TMI question re. vomiting

    I'm in the process of switching vitamins, some I tried made me feel sick too, I was surprised I didn't throw up! I just ordered the ones that taste like Starburst candy
  8. Thanks GradyCat, I actually chose to stick to water at first, didn't take any Pepto. Catwoman7; oddly enough, I baked tomato sauce with cottage cheese (1/4 cup of each) and had no issues with it, same with tomato orange soup. 2Bsmaller18, that's what I did, just water at first, then I had some yogurt, later an egg salad puree. ED_NW, hey neighbor, I'm in Portland, I have a version of those but didn't try them, I will have to remember them in the future! I appreciate the feedback, thanks everyone!! It's 5:30pm and I feel like it never happened. But I discarded what was left of the soup!
  9. Yesterday I had some tomato soup, and right away I could tell pouch didn't like it but I ate it anyways. I also had a serving of crackers (a no-no I know), thinking it would help settle my new gut. Instead, I had horrible pain all afternoon, similar to when I passed gallstones before my gallbladder removal. So five hours later I vomited. I felt better for a while but then the pain build up again, for another 4 hours later I vomited again. Now the problem is Ms .Pouch doesn't even appreciate room-temperature water, and my gut cramps up for a while after every drink. Clenching, icy, intense pain for a few minutes, that seems to travel as if the whole gang was protesting. I'm afraid to try to consume anything with calories, even worried above taking my vitamins. Do I try Pepto-Bismol? Leave it alone and suffer through it?

    TMI question re. vomiting

    No matter what, I *never* want to be in the same room as others when I throw up, whether it's a noisy production or not!
  11. I'm having the bypass on the same day My surgery date was originally set for June 6, but I got a call Thursday that my surgeon had a cancellation, I'm so excited! Not nervous at all, super ready!
  12. I've heard they can change, but not always, and not necessarily forever. I'll just play the cards as they are dealt
  13. Lol, I probably have enough! I just got a call today, my surgery is now moved up to April 11, ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!!!!!!!
