  1. Congrats!
    GivinItMyALL got a reaction from zella in Nov 2020 Post Op Thread   
    I am 19 days out, and doing better each day! Had a rough start. Down nearly 18 lbs post surgery, but about 37 since October. I am starting to eat more and more things, and it is tolerated well, but still can't eat very much. I am okay with that!

    My surgeon wanted me to start my multi at 7 days out instead of 14, since I had some complications. I started the B12 and Calcium at 14.

    Both my surgeon and my dietician said tablets and capsules are fine. They don't want their patients taking gummies or softgels, though.

    I've been tolerating the Multivitamin just fine, thankfully. I did NOT tolerate the Calcium I had, though. I'm now taking soft chews for that.

    Since my post decided to duplicate itself, My wife and I had our 2 week follow up today. We have lost just over 30lbs each since our Preop diet started on October 27th. Our journey now continues with the puree stage now.

    Hi everyone! I was sleeved on the 18th. My recovery has been pretty straight forward, although on the first few days after surgery I was taking quite a lot of painkillers etc. Yesterday I was feeling quite good and decided to try some scrambled egg (approved by my doctor and dietician) and it did not sit well at all..well actually it didnt sit. It came up. Today I have been back to having some painful swallows as well as such a gurgling tummy and the discomfort kind of radiates to my back. I am unsure if its muscle pain or gas pain at this point. I've spoken to the specialist today and he assured me nothing would have got damaged but just wondering if any of you have had some good days then regressed or if it's mostly just improved? I even started having some hiccups after eating today which made me a bit worried. It's all so unknown and I'm a worrier at the best of times so knowing there can be come complications and going a step backwards in terms of recovery today has me a little on edge 😅

    @TracespaceCongratulations! I was sleeved on the 6th and so far things have gone well except for issues with BM. It's so interesting how surgeons/dieticians due post-op differently. There is no one blanket approach. My dietician had me on liquids for two weeks post-op and I'm now on to soft foods. I was annoyed hearing of people who went straight to soft foods after a week or less, but I trusted my surgeon and his team. I'm very fortunate that I was able to handle the stages okay so far. I might have had uncomfortable moments, but they were few and far in between that I don't remember specifics. Except for one, I was having my first bite of soft food that was too dry and apparently not chewed well enough, it was horrible. Felt like the food was going to get stuck with each bite. I then purred my food and I was perfectly fine. I suppose the food wasn't soft enough yet.
    Everything does keep getting better. Listen to your body and follow it's cue. Don't push it if it's feeling uncomfortable. After reading these message boards and may others, I realize that following your body's cue are sometimes the best approach.
    By the way, I read on some post that for some hiccups is when they know that they're full.

    I'm so disappointed you guys! I am in Seattle. I finally got my insurance approval on Saturday. I called the surgeon's office yesterday and asked about getting a date, and they called back this morning. Due to COVID they aren't scheduling anyone right now. I wish everyone would wear masks and social distance so I can get my surgery!!!

    There are certain people I am not telling for a few reasons (mental health issues that I am not willing to deal with the repercussions), and on the whole I am keeping it kinda on the down low. I am telling some, but also saying it isn't public knowledge, so they do not share (hopefully). Anyone who asks, whom I don't feel comfortable sharing with, will get "I am working with a dietician on a medically supervised diet" -- which is not a lie.

    Mine seems to be a lot more lenient than others... I was having stuff like refried Beans, scrambled eggs, fish, etc... during week 2. I am 3 weeks out now, and I have been having things like chili (ground beef, Tomato sauce, beans and spices), chicken chile relleno Soup, wheat thins or triscuits, and so forth. It's all listed on my sheet from my dietician...

    I have been tolerating everything well (except the Calcium I had... I will have to get something different).
