    I had my surgery on Valentine's Day [emoji3590]
    I'm officially at 270 as of this morning. I was at 309 when I went in for surgery. I want this damn weight to come off faster but I guess slow and steady wins the race. Its still funny to me being the fat person that doesn't eat anything. Obviously people who know I had surgery don't judge me about that but going to events and stuff with people I'm not familiar with and eating a couple bites of food while weighing 270 lbs is a funny image [emoji1787]

    Dcsjoc got a reaction from Vivis in All liquid pre-op diet causing diarrhea?   
    I had the same issues pre op with the liquid diets. I am now post op 3 months and still haven’t had a solid 💩. I still get the same noises in my stomach and go 2-3 times 1 day and might not go for 1 or 2 days after that. I work out of a truck and bathrooms aren’t always down the hall for me😡

    I had severe sleep apnea prior to surgery. Only got my cpap machine 1 year prior even though I tested 15 years ago. 3-5 hours broken sleep 3 pee breaks a night before the machine. 4-6 solid sleep after the machine. Now 3 months post surgery I haven’t used my cpap and getting 5-7 hrs of rem sleep with no pee breaks in middle of night. Still have to go see my sleep apnea Dr. But I’m done with the machine!!!

    Here are just a couple of the silly things that have made me smile the last couple weeks:
    1. I can buy cute underwear that are not made out of white flour sack material.
    2. I can put on my socks in the morning with out making strange sounds and grunting.
    3. When getting dressed to go somewhere the first thing out of my mouth is NOT "does this make me look fat!"

    Being able to help my husband build our new fence. I wouldn’t have been able to help much a year ago. Not sure if this is really a good thing 🙄😂

    I also love being able to fold into smaller spaces.

    Today I had an unexpected and surprisingly satisfying NSV. I noticed that my belly button shrank. It's about 50% shallower than it used to be! Who knew I would be so pleased about less depth to my belly button? 😆

    6 weeks out and am happy as a clam I did this. Down almost 50lbs. 4 weeks post op was a huge goal of being able to eat fish. The shakes Soups and yogurts were starting to get to me. Now 6 weeks out I’m still not hungry and eat 3-5 is of solid food chix, fish, chopped meat Turkey , sausage, beef!!!shrimp is actually the easiest for me. So good luck and follow your plan. Also walking and weights 5-6x a week.

    So first day back to work after 6 weeks off from the sleeve surgery and maybe 1/2 way through my tour I had to drive myself to the ER. Had excruciating pain on left side of my lower back to me lower stomach. I haven’t had 1 issue in last 6 weeks and I have been working out and walking 6 days a week. I even told the Surgeon on Thursday that I felt 2 more weeks would have better for me to return to work since I just started eating real solids. Anyway waiting on a few tests but everyone thinks it could be a kidney stone. So I have that going for me!!!! I’ll keep you posted!!!

    Well the timing sure sucks but if it is kidney stones at least that is something fairly easy to treat and it’s not something that will require another surgery. Hang in there.

    Yeah it sounds like it could be a kidney stone. Been there, done that. As bad as kidney stones are, I guess it's a good thing it's not a complication with your sleeve. I hope you feel better soon!

    I had my revision surgery March 1st, went home on the 3rd and went back on the 5th thanks to a bowel obstruction. I'm one of the rare people who experience a bad reaction. We're hoping steroids and time will take away the swelling that's causing the obstruction.

    Pay attention to the warning signs they tell you. My surgeon gave me a big magnet with instructions of what to do. I did just that and called the on call surgeon, who sent me to the ER and ordered a CT scan.

    On the plus side, no more GERD!

    I usually have between 600 and 700, maybe 800 calories if I eat some fruit. 380 calories are from 2 shakes and the yogurt. That ensures I'm getting plenty of Protein and 1/3 of my liquids, then leaves 100-200 for each meal, which is plenty, and then I can have some fruit here and there.
    I forgot to mention earlier that last night I had 1/2 chicken taco and it was the best thing ever. 1/2 low carb tortilla = 25 cal, 2oz shredded chicken = 60 cal, 2 tbs of refried Beans = 30 cal, a little taco sauce = 10 cal, and 1/4 bag of Quest Protein chips = 30 cal. What was nice about this meal was that it kept me feeling full for longer than other meals I had been eating and I just felt very satisfied. Almost "normal." 🙂
