    My surgery is July 7th. Had my pre-op visit (blood draws) and Dexa scan today. I was also told to stop taking Multi Vitamins. I will get a shot in the hospital and then will resume taking them 2 weeks out.

    July 13th surgery. I am having a revision from sleeve to bypass for GERD. I don't have to do a two week diet just a 3 day liquid one. I have my pre op visit tomorrow

    My energy was good within about a week. We are all different, though, so your experience won’t be like anyone else’s. If you can get the Protein in, it will really help with energy. The only time I had a hard time with food wanting to revisit in “public,” (closed door office with one co-worker) was about 1.5 months out after having some chicken at lunch. I managed to keep it down 👍🏻 Win! 😬

    I had surgery on April 28th and within 2 weeks I was feeling "normal" until I started trying to be as active as I was before hand. Just walk as much as possible but try not to break a hard sweat until a few weeks out. It'll be a struggle to get your Fluid intake at first and it won't be any easier if you put out more than you take in.....this is spoken from experience.

    That's my biggest fear is being tired and exhausted all the time, and hoping I keep my food down don't want to be embarrassed in public EEK

    I started working (desk job, remote) 2 weeks after being sleeved and got through it but the exhaustion was terrible. I'm 8 weeks out and have just started noticing having energy again.

    you're encouraged to walk as soon as you get home from the hospital (in fact, they'll have you up and walking while you're still IN the hospital). You'll also likely be cleared to drive if it's been at least 24 hours since you took your last pain pill, but I didn't feel up to it until I was about a week out (I was just too tired...). As far as exercise, I was encouraged to walk right away. Most other exercises I was cleared to do at four weeks out. Strength-training had to wait until I was eight weeks out (although the exercise question might vary among surgeons)

    Surgery date 7/13. Officially 5 days post op. Not in pain but some soreness depending on how I move. No BM either. I feel nauseous immediately when I drink or eat something but it soon passes. Not getting in enough Water or Protein. This really sucks. Just ready to get past this phase.

    Oh screw him lol. You have lost 21 lbs that's good. Everyone is different. To me it's a marathon not a sprint . You doing great. Just stick to your meal plan it will work. I'm 6 weeks and have lost 36 lbs. Everyone looses different. I lost 5 lbs one week and 3 lbs another and so on. I just keep telling myself that I'm eating 700 calories a day compared to 2500 or 3000 calories a day before the surgery.

    So 3 days post-op now. I have to inject myself with the anti-coaggulants for 10 days and I have to do the liquid diet for 10 days as well (so 1 more week to go!).
    One question... Is anyone else in the liquid stage hungry? I mean, I wouldn't be able to eat a normal meal, but I'm still hungry like I WOULD be able to... Anyone else? I can't wait to eat some solid (pureed) foods!

    New here. I was scheduled for sleeve on the 27th but my pre surgery endoscopy found changes confirmed as Barrett's esophagus. Sooooo I am now gastric bypass, fingers crossed that the VA blanket approval will be applied to my original date of surgery.
