    Protein HELP

    There is a guy I follow on Tiktok - RNY Chris, he showed that if you use a fairlife protein shake and 2tbsps on instant jello pudding and blend it up, you can stick it in the fridge and it turns to pudding quickly. It actually tastes great too! I can't handle sweets since I had my surgery otherwise I'd be living on those puddings.

    4 Days Post Op

    I had gastric bypass on the 12th and I've been experiencing the exact same thing but only when I drink room temp or cooler beverages. It's the weirdest feeling, kind of like chugging something carbonated and having the carbonation just stuck in your esophagus. I feel like broth has been my only saving grace, I cook it till it's super hot and then just slowly sip on it, as it cools down I just keep reheating it. As for meds, my doctor did give me something for stomach spasms, an antacid, nausea meds, and pain meds. I hate the way the pain meds make me feel so I didn't take one last night and I'm kind of regretting that decision. None of the meds take away that rolling pain though.

    May 2022 surgery?

    I'm on my last day before surgery and I'm struggling to drink the shakes today. I had to gag down the 1st one this morning. I'm adding some cinnamon to my next shake in hopes it will help a little.

    May Surgery Buddies

    My surgeon's office recommends to start the week before surgery because will not be able to take them the 1st week or 2 after surgery while our stomach's are healing.

    May Surgery Buddies

    I've been on my pre-op liquid diet for almost a week now and while it's not the easiest thing in the world I'm using this exact mindset. Glad to hear your surgery went well!

    May Surgery Buddies

    I started the Bariatric advantage calcium chews last week and I tried to start the Ultra solo with iron but it made me throw up. I ordered the chewable version which showed up yesterday and after reading on some reddit threads for Gastric Bypass I split it in half (it's a large tablet) I had half with my mid day shake and half with my 3rd shake of the day. My surgery is on the 12th, so just 2 days away

    May 2022 Surgeries

    I'm on day 4 of my pre-op diet too but my RNY surgery is scheduled for this Thursday. It's so interesting to see how everyone has different requirements before surgery. I'm struggling today with drinking my shakes. The vanilla bariatric advantage just doesn't does good after 4 days and 4 shakes per day.

    May Surgery Buddies

    Hi Lee Anne, I’d be interested in joining a group, my surgery is on the 12th and I’m in Arizona also. My insurance is covering mine so I’ll be having it in AZ.

    May 2022 surgery?

    My surgery is May 12th. I’m on day 2 of my pre-op diet, I’m allowed to have 4 of my bariatric advantage shakes per day, clear liquids, and 2cups of veggies a day. Today I’m having muscle cramps from peeing so much! I’m getting really excited for my procedure. I’m 5’9 and weigh 300lbs.

    Intro and question

    I wanted to say hello to the other two desert dwellers, I'm in Tucson and having surgery with Dr. Weiner next Thursday. Capri, I'm sorry your sister is not being supportive. My grandma who has always been thin is not very supportive, I've come to realize with age it has more to do with her than it does with me. Good luck with your decision!

    Lack of patience

    It will seem like it takes forever but it will be here before you know it, I had my 1st appointment in November 2021 and my surgery is next week. It still feels unreal.
