  1. Surgery 12/10. Stalled right now too.
  2. NJ here too!! 12/10 was my sleeve date
  3. I have the same question. You figured it out! Help
  4. Do you eat the hummus with anything? Just curious.
  5. I am experiencing the same thing. My nutritionist says I should be eating every three hours. Even if I drink plenty of fluids, two hours later my stomach is feeling empty. Not sure what to do.
  6. I’m in North Brunswick we can figure something out. We have very similar stats. Surgery date weight was 239, last I checked I was 227. I was told to only weigh once weekly fridays so I don’t get scale obsessed. I agree that the practice is very good and helpful. I really like the nutritionist I picked as well.
  7. We’re surgery date twins!! I had mine in NJ within Dr Sadek
  8. Instead of chicken broth I did a chicken Bouillon square in hot water. Tastes soooo much better. Lifesaver
  9. Yay that’s great. I was sleeved 12/10. I probably felt good after the 18th. Never had nausea either. Moved into mushy foods (pureed) with no issue. Hoping it gets better for us all.
  10. So glad you’re feeling better. I did a five minute walk on my block and the gas issue subsided immensely. I put a tummy binder in for that. The food aversion was strong for like 15 days. I’m on mushy food now and it coincided with my body’s sudden desire to eat again. Wish you the best!
  11. I had the same protein aversion. My tip, fill a cup halfway with ice and water, then fill the rest with the protein water. It’s not a super high amount but it helped my weakness and I cold actually drink it. I had my surgery 12/10. I have weak days and normal days. I realize that if I consume half a protein shake within half hour of waking I’ll have a better day. This after I was able to actually drink the shakes
  12. Oh no, sorry to hear. I remembered your surgery was yesterday and was hoping for the best for you. Hopefully it’s just inflammation causing the problem and it will get better real soon. Keep us posted.
  13. My doctor warned me about that before I left the hospital. He said to not weigh until day 4 then weigh daily, and report any two pound gain to the office before my first check up
  14. Ugh I hope the doctor has a reason for the torture. You’re probably losing faster than most. I just hope you’re feeling alright with what you can consume.
  15. Are you sure it’s still just clear and not full liquids. I know you can have a few weeks of clear ahead of surgery but usually a week after surgery you move to Full liquids
  16. I really need to make an effort to make protein goals too. I’m doing ok on the general liquid goals. I went to the mall yesterday and certain smells made me want food but it wasn’t physical just smells triggering cravings. Having a sugar free lemonade to sip on really helped.
  17. Same as yours. How you feeling Angelina? Today was the best day so far. Thicker liquids going down better. Still get full after just a few sips. Not much pain except for hiccups. Sleep is non existent and stitches are itchy. I haven’t taken off the little bandaids they put in them. Every day is a little better
  18. I’m gonna have to dig up some melatonin in my med cabinet. Don’t feel sleepy at all, which of course makes me think of food.
  19. Mariela94 Day 4 post opt. I couldn’t do the milk type protein shakes at all. My nutritionist had me buy the premier protein clear, and had me dilute significantly with water and ice. Life saver. I started strained cream of chicken and that was filling for lunch. Tonight I had a little chicken buillon cube in 8 ounces of hot water. I have not been able to nearly finish any of these but I don’t feel weak anymore. The pain for me was gone yesterday. My doctor said I shouldn’t be in constant pain. Sudden gas pain was normal. When I hiccup, I swear I’m gonna pass out from the sharp pain.
  20. Sitting in my hospital bed post op VSG today. Lots of tummy pain initially. Was given dilaudid and it helped immensely. After walking to the bathroom I was authorized for my X-ray confirmation. It was so cool to see my little baby stomach on the screen after taking a shot of contrast. It’s been 12 hours, pain is being managed with acetaminophen well enough. Started my liquids which I really have to make an effort to take down. 1 sip at a time is my motto. Hoping all goes well for everyone here.
  21. Surgery is tomorrow morning. So nervous out if nowhere. This is a huge change for the body. I’m praying all goes well and that like LASIK it will be one of the best decisions of my life.
  22. I’m under the same I instructions. I started on Friday and have lost 7 pounds as of this morning. Definitely good amount of water weight to lose. Surgery is on Friday!!
