  1. I had a pulling pain as well. Sometimes it was sharp and pulling, other times it was dull, pulling and almost constant. I asked around, and some had the same feeling,while other didn't. I'm 4 months post and it only comes back every now and then...always in the same place.
  2. @Mello1 The wrap should help a lot. I used it quite a bit. I just sleeping on my side yesterday, so you are doing very well in that category. I am surprised that you have an appetite, but everyone is different. I too had a hard time with meeting hydration and protein goals. I finally found a good unflavored protein powder. It's by isopure, its unflavored and I added it to my unsweetened applesauce this morning and couldnt taste it. Last night I had soup, and couldnt taste it in the soup either. Everyone says walking helps...keep it up!!!
  3. @asnirak Congratulations, on the lost so far. I think the lack of appetite is the most interesting thing so far. I was reading my guide in preparation for sat (15 days =real food for me). I'm thinking fish, but I have some meatless ground beef (which I think is tofu) that I might try. I will have to remember to make it moist though... You mentioning gravy reminded me of that.. thank you!!! Did you rub the glue in the shower? I have been gentle around the incisions, I think I have a good about of glue left.
  4. @ronjsteele1 We are almost surgery twins. Mine was the 13th. Did you have bypass or sleeve? I have the glue on my stitches. What did you eat?...did it feel funny going down? I'm so courious...lol.
  5. @Casey2020 Considering the time you were suppose to be on the liquid diet, what are their recommendations for prep? If they didn't give any, I would call and ask. Just to make sure you are good to go when they give you a new date...you know.
  6. I'm only 9 day post op, but I prep new foods with hesitation. I was provided a very inclusive binder for weight loss surgery. It includes macros, examples of receipes to use at each stage, and examples of a daily menu to mimick at home to meet nutritional needs. I use it as a guide,to say oh...I can have this and that, eventhough I have no appetite. I downloaded a bariatric cookbook yesterday, it includes options for each stage. Most is for the pureed and general diets, but I picked it because it tells which recipe is okay for which stage. And reviews say that people have been using it years after their procedures to stay on track. There are some a few taboo things in their bypass people can't eat, but sleeve or band people can so you have to know your personal dog's and don'ts. It's called "fresh start bariatric cookbook by sarah kent if you want to check it out. The reviews were mixed, I checked b&n and amazon. I figured it was worth a peek. That's if you are into receipes. I'm usually not, but I knew I would need a little help with this nutrition stuff.
  7. Glad to hear you are doing well. You'll be home soon.
  8. Thanks...I was super tired last night, and I today I've been taking is easy. It's hard to rest, but you are right, the body needs time to heal.
  9. @Mello1 My lower right is where I feel it most too. I bought a belly band from Amazon to make it easier to hold in that area. I am 5 days post op now. I still have no appetite and I try to get in as much fluids as i can but it's no where near the recommended amount. I was in a lot of pressure pain in the hospital. I took the pain meds for about 2 days but that was it. I started doing more little things around the house like sweeping and laundry. It takes me longer but I feel better moving then laying down. I heard many people like the as popsicles, so I'm going to see if I can get my hands on some tomorrow.
  10. @ansirak I have been worried about my breathing as well. I try to get up and move when I can. I find myself fearing coughing from my dry throat. My husband keeps the little container by my side of the bed full with poweraid zero, water and a protein shake. I dont have much of an appetite. I try to get in liquids as I can I may je up to 8 or 10 ounces day. I'm just not hungry. They had pizza and pasta today, the pasta smell was intoxicating. I licked a little of the sauce off his fork...after that some broth did the trick and I was okay. Does broth work for you? I have found ham broth and chicken bouillon to be amazing!!!!
  11. Hello everyone, I'm new to the website. I just had my bypass on friday so that makes me 3 days post-OP. Does anyone have weird internal stitch pulling? I placed an order for a bodyband and a body pillow, does anyone else have any suggestions?
