  1. 3 weeks post-op. I'm only eating one, on a good day two, meals a day. So nowhere near what I should be, but I feel rather sick afterwards so it's hard. The portion sizes are small, not sure what the issue is. Does/did anyone else have trouble eating after surgery, and how long did it last?
  2. I feel like crying. Really let myself down. I can't believe I've been so stupid. 15 days post op and I thought I'd try a small McDonalds (6 nuggets and plain hamburger). I feel very ill now. And it wasn't even worth it. Was disgusting. Argh so mad at myself!
  3. This was over 3 weeks ago so yeah, I'm okay now. Don't think any perm damage has been done.
  4. Had bypass on August 10. Between then and Sept 08 I lost 14.6 kg (32 pounds) - but since then nothing. It's now been 10 days since I lost any weight and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Wondering if I should cut back on portion sizes (I have a small breakfast but lunch and dinner are around 150-200g each).

    I'm eating pretty much normal food now - I feel like maybe I shouldn't be because it has only been 5 weeks? Bit worried that my pouch isn't working as it should, I was expecting to feel full after two or three tablespoons of food. Nowhere near. Not sure why.

    Recent RNY - How ya doing?

    Ate some stuff I shouldn't have and felt very ill. Then I got a UTI and felt more ill. This week has been a bad week. On the plus side I'm down 30 pounds since my surgery on the 10th. This week I really need to focus on hitting my fluid and protein targets.

    Been feeling bloated and generally unwell for a few days. I'm definitely dehydrated, pee's turned a horrible dark orange colour and today my poop was blueish-black. Tmi? I really need to start going outside. It's just I literally have nowhere to go. Uni is all online, no friends live near enough to visit, most places are still closed due to COVID.

    I feel that I'm eating too much. Today I had 150ml of milk with 1 biscuit of Weetabix (bit like porridge). And for dinner I had 2 fish fingers. Okay that doesn't sound like a lot, but it was my understanding that in terms of volume per meal, I should be eating much less than that.
  9. 😮 How odd that my surgeon reckons it's fine to have soft (non pureed) foods now. He even said things like curry are okay. Maybe I should play it safe and follow other, more strict, guidelines.
  10. No just that feeling of illness when you've eaten way too much Christmas Dinner. Hopefully that's all that happens, I guess I'll have to wait a few hours to see.

    The texture and taste isn't nice.

    Just had my first 'meal' (ie something that required chewing) in 15 days - bit of mash with some non-pureed bolognese. Presumably I won't know for a couple of hours whether it was a good idea not to puree it (I'm technically still right at the start of the puree stage but it's so vile,), but I chewed like mad and feel fine at the moment so fingers crossed. Not full, but not feeling particularly hungry either.

    I ate a small amount of runny Weetabix (bit like porridge) last night, 9 days post surgery, but I don't think it was runny enough and have had some bad pains today. I hope I've not caused any internal issues.

    POST OP BLUES

    I feel the same way. I'd like to think it's just the post-op blues, but I'm only just realising how difficult this lifestyle change is going to be. Before surgery I was blind to it all, didn't really face up to the realities of it. I think I may have an eating disorder or a food-related phobia, it goes way beyond fussy eating - I am and always have been scared of most food textures and new things. I've literally gone days without food even when there's been food in the house, because I just couldn't face it. The 'small portion, healthy diet' would be okay if I could eat that food but right now I don't see how I'll be able to. Seeing my doctor in a few days, hopefully he can refer me to a service that deals with this stuff.

    My wounds are so damn itchy.
  16. I realise this is maybe not the best attitude to have one week post-op - but I would feel so much better about this if I knew that one day, when I'm healthy, I can enjoy the occasional bit of fast food like everyone else. Can people who have had a bypass eat a McDonalds if they want to?
  17. MoominMan

    Is McDonalds gone for good?

    Yes, but I want to know if its physically possible (ie can you eat a burger and fries with a pouch stomach).

    Recent RNY - How ya doing?

    Had RNY on Aug 10th. Just weighed myself for the first time, 11 pounds gone! 😮 I am feeling okay, not in pain exactly but it feels a bit strange... bit bloated? Really need to get into a better water/protein routine though.

    Having real trouble getting enough water in. All my info says to continue drinking in small amounts (I think it says max 1oz at a time), how am I supposed to fit in 2 litres at that pace?!

    Bit confused. Just had my first shake - slim fast 325ml. Don't feel full. I didn't realise I'd be able to drink it all either.

    I'm flying home today (had my operation on the 10th), other than a bit of an odd reaction to the anaesthetic it seems to have all gone fine. My surgeon said he would like to do a 120 cm (rather than the more standard 60 cm) bypass of my intestine.... not really sure why but I went along with it. Not eaten anything yet, just been on water. Tbh I am nervous about drinking too much in one go.... when will I be able to drink normally?

    It's 3am and I can't sleep. Flying out to Estonia in the morning for surgery tomorrow (10th). I've felt increasingly melancholy all week. I thought I'd be happy but right now I just feel sad. Sad that it's come to this.

    Oh god. The pre-op diet has gone awfully, maybe one good day? Out of 14? Oh dear. I'm flying to Estonia (from London) for my surgery in a few days and I am a bit worried about having a big liver.
  24. I'm so disappointed in myself. I am 6 days into the liver reducing diet (following a milk diet), but I've had fast food every day. That's even more than I usually do. It's as though my brain has started craving all the things that I know I won't be having again. I feel like this is just classic me being self-destructive. Amazingly I haven't gained any weight because I've not been eating anything else, just fast food for dinner. I'm hoping I can put this past week behind me and start afresh, my surgery is on the 10th - is that enough time to turn it around?
