    Toddler silverware. There are options that are only silver and not babyish looking. These help you eat tiny bites/spoonfuls. Sugar free Popsicles and jello. Get a strainer with the tiny holes. I loved simple French onion soup and strained the bits out. It was tastier than a store bought broth. An immersion blender helped me have a chicken soup with veggies. I also agree not to get anything in bulk yet. I do like isopure protein powder. It is tasteless, and I trick myself into getting more protein by putting it in my water and soup. Get lots of the little medicine cups from the hospital. I call them "Mommy's shot glasses."

    Day2 after surgery.

    Keep walking at home and take the pain meds. It gets better around day 5. You can do this! Sent using BariatricPal mobile app

    August surgery

    It turns out it was the anti nausea patch I wore behind my ear for the surgery. The nurse called me 2 days after going home to check on me. She confirmed that vision would return to normal a few days after removing the patch. And it did! Sent using BariatricPal mobile app

    August surgery

    Vision changes - I had gastric bypass on Thursday. I am doing OK with the pain and no hunger at all. I am near sighted and need glasses to see far away things. I can also read any thing close up with my glasses on. But ever since surgery, I have noticed that when reading or using my phone close up, it is blurry. I remove my glasses and it's clear, but distant items are blurry of course. Has anyone experienced vision changes after surgery?

      Are you on pain meds? Definitely could affect your eyesight.

    I did it yesterday. It's weird to go to sleep in one room and wake up in another room. Lots of pain in recovery, but it's under control now. Mostly I just feel like I did 1 trillion sit-ups. I'm trying to remember to walk at home too. I'm not hungry anymore.! Sent from my SM-G950U1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Awesome! Good luck! I just told my parents about the surgery. I thought it would be a whole thing, but they were pretty cool about it. My mom asked lots of question all of which I had answers for. My dad only asked, "does the doctor need my help? Because I'm available." Uh, no thanks Dad. He's retired from working in electronics, and he's quite a joker. 😂

    I'm new here. My bypass is scheduled for Aug 13. I'm in the metro Atlanta area and a mom of 3.i have a hard time keeping up with them. I'm on liquid diet now and very hungry. My ultimate goal is to ride a roller coaster. Or all the roller coasters. Or go to a water park and not be embarrassed. I have a dress from my 24th birthday. If I ever get back to it, I will cry. Anyone else nearby or having the same surgery or day? Wouldn't it be crazy to find someone at the same hospital at the same time? 😜
