    Recent RNY - How ya doing?

    Yesterday makes 3 weeks out for me and I weighed in today at 28 pounds. I'm 3 pounds away from being back under 200 and I can't wait.

    I don't know how y'all are getting so much protein in - my doctor told me to stop shakes once I moved to soft food. Yesterday I only got 9 grams of protein. Are those of you who are hitting your goals using shakes? I might ask about adding them back in for a bit.
  3. I’ve had constant burping since surgery 6 days ago. My doctor doesn’t seem too overly concerned about it, but I’m curious if anyone else has had that experience, and did anything help? Currently my PA had me stop taking any fluids (other than to take my pills) and I’m taking Gas-X. I’m terrified of a leak, so any reassurance would be helpful
  4. That doesn’t seem to be the case for me which is why this seems odd. I burp from the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep, whether my stomach is empty or I’m sipping liquids. It started right away in the recovery room. So strange.

    Burping

    Did this ever get better / change? I’m 6 days post op RNY and have been belching CONSTANTLY since the recovery room. So much so the nurse in recovery and my main nurse commented on it.
  6. How are you doing now?

    Recent RNY - How ya doing?

    Had mine on 8/25. Been home 4 days now and already so sick of protein shakes - too sickly sweet. I feel pretty good as of now. I felt AWFUL right after, mostly due to not getting pain meds on schedule I think. Coughing hurts like a b***h, didn’t anticipate that. Didn’t anticipate how much I would need to cough either, should have probably done my research on that one. I haven’t weighed myself yet because I’m sure I’m still retaining fluids but I plan to do so on Tuesday.

    No pain pump, my doctor did oral pain pills only and my nurse kept coming late to give them I'm feeling MUCH better today than I was before, so that’s good!

    I’m okay! The pain was waaaay worse than I anticipated, I’m not gonna lie. First 24 hours were rough. It’s slowly gotten better since then. I discharge in a few hours, so I’m hoping being at home helps some. The fire alarm keeps going off here in the middle of the night on top of being woken up frequently for vitals so I haven’t really slept well. I’m also burping SO MUCH and that makes me a little nervous. I can’t tell what is gas just coming out, and what is signs of over filling. I’m terrified of getting a leak so it’s a fine line to walk to get enough but not too much. Thanks for asking!

    I’m still in the hospital, just over 24 hours since surgery for me. I am not going to lie— I did NOT anticipate how much pain I would be in 😖. I’m feeling a little better today, but man yesterday and last night was rough. I’m so impressed by the people who are able to do this without anyone there with them - I honestly don’t know what I would have done yesterday if my bf hadn’t been with me to do everything I needed.

  14. Anyone have a Protein Water they’ve tried that they really enjoy and would recommend? Thanks!

    I haven't had surgery yet but she told me 4 ounces of protein shake, 3x a day (total of 12 ounces a day) for the first 2 weeks post op.

    Same thing happened to me - I'm on the 25th now. Was originally scheduled for September 15th. I know it's only 2 weeks earlier but it feels much earlier to me!

    My doctor just moved my surgery date up so instead of September, I'm now August 25! Joining the August club!

    September 2020 Surgery

    My doctor called this morning and they moved me up to August 25th! That feels so soon!!! I'm ready, though!
  19. Thank you so much, @SampTheChamp - I'm so glad I found you all!
  20. I'm approved and got a surgery date! September 15, here I come.

    September 2020 Surgery

    I'm a September surgery too! September 15th. I can't wait.
  22. A question for the DMV folks - have any of you found a therapist who specializes in food / food addiction to be helpful? My therapist I've gone to for the past 4 years is retiring at the end of this month. Since I need to start over I figured I'd try to find a specialist. Any recommendations would be great!
  23. Thanks, @gr8ful1 - that's interesting to hear. I wonder why some folks stay 2 nights and some only 1?
  24. How long did you all have to stay in the hospital after surgery? I'd love to hear about your process and how things went if you're willing to share.
  25. Hi there. I've started the process and am curious to hear from those who have had the surgery regarding timelines. I know the ultimate answer is "it varies", just trying to hear experiences so I can know what to expect. My insurance only has one requirement, which is evidently pretty rare (she double checked twice) - my BMI. I meet that criteria. Given this, I'm curious if my timeline for possible surgery will be shorter or if I should anticipate the 6ish months most people experience. Thank you!
