    November 2022 Surgery Buddies

    Happy Holidays!!! I think I have been over on my calories a few days this past week. The head hunger has been very strong and just drinking water has not been helping. I also get very strong stomach hunger pangs. I am supposed to have 2 meals and 2 shakes rotates 3.5ish hours apart. I have been.getting hungry after afout 2 hours. Im thinking my meals are too small maybe...? I see my surgeon and nutritionist on the 5th. So I will ask. How is everyone?

    Don't let the infections get you down. You have already come amazingly far in this and eventually the infection will give up.

    I am putting myself back on full liquids for a few days. I was put on soft foods (not pureed) on Nov. 28th, but the last few days my stomach seems to be more upset. I figure maybe I need to restart, slow down, and watch my intake a bit better. It could also just be constipation because I misplaced my dulcolax. But better safe than sorry. I met a coworker from another department who has the sleeve on Halloween this year. So that was pretty cool. I am thankful for the amount of support I get at work. My immediate coworkers watch my intake more closely than I do 😅.

    My scale at home is broken. For 3 weeks it told me I wasnt losing much at all. At my followup i was weighed and was 7 lbs under what my scale says. Still seems slow but we all have our own normal
  5. I am like this. I am 2 weeks today and I am not feeling the restriction. I just feel hungry. Sent from my SM-F916U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Two weeks post op today and I am so hungry. I am getting all my protein in. I have been forgetting my fluids that last few days. I go back to work tomorrow. Most of my incisions seem to healing nicely. I have only lost 3 lbs so far....

    blood?

    I had to have my endoscopy thing just before my surgery because my insurance didn't deem it necessary. The anesthesiologist also had to intubate me. So I had a very rough bloody throat when i woke up. Sent from my SM-F916U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I bought it so excited. Heated it up immediately when I got home, strained the bits out of it, poured into my little portion control bowl and ate a few bites slowly so ready for it to be amazing. I then handed it off to my husband and told him I will not be eating it. The Tomato and Red pepper soup I shared somewhere has been amazing though. I think its my new favorite. I get all my protein in my 3 shakes so I am okayed for a small bowl of non- protein soup daily. Sent from my SM-F916U using BariatricPal mobile app

    CIRKUL WATER BOTTLES

    I have one. I have not used it because I was told no straws and no poptops of any type. The cirkul flavors have what seems like a pop top to me so added air was a concern. The flavors are great and zero sugar though. I especially like the white cherry. I will be bringing mine to my followup on the 28th to get a deffinate answer before i use it again though.

    I also tried the Panera Lonster Bisque and found it dId not sit well with my stomach. Over all though, i struggle getting all my fluids still. The random muscle near my main incision hurts a lot less than it did a few days ago. I am super itchy from healing. I weighed myself at 264, which is 19 lbs less than my starting weight but only 3 lbs less than my presurgery weight.

    Hi. I was also sleeved on the 8th. I can not say what is normal, but my scale is newish and unreliable. It told me I've only lost 3 pounds since my surgery. Dont worry so much about the scale. I have faith my dietitian and Dr. Will let me know if something is wrong. You got this.

    I am now 4 days post op. The pain was originally my stomach itself, by yesterday i stopped feeling that pain and my larger incision...actually about 2 inches away from my larger incision has started hurting like crazy. I do find the sweetness of my protein shakes difficult but tolerate soups and broth really well. Constantly sipping at my water and nowhere near meeting that goal yet.

  16. Nioxin works by stimulating hair follicles. To truely get it to work you would need to use the whole line of products, not just the shampoo and conditioner. Prenatal vitamins work really good on hair and nails. That said, i actually really like nioxin as a product. Sent from my SM-F916U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I tolerate this really well and wish it had more of its own protein.

    I am struggling with my fluids. After just one or two small sips i feel so full for hours. I am trying to force it to get all my proteins and water but it hurts. I hope it gets easier soon Sent from my SM-F916U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I had my surgery!!!! Doing good with fluids. Pain was terrible for me when i first woke up. I hurt most on my left side at my stomach. I have been up walking. Getting up and back down are the very worst.
