    My surgery was 9/14/2020. I had the rny. I was incredibly tired and in pain so I was in the hospital until the night of 9/16. I am ok, but experiencing some sharp pains on my right side.

    I like that you said that because my weight loss has been really slow too it seems like I’m losing between 0.5 to 2 pounds a week. But it’s encouraging to hear you say “at least its not going up’ so hurray to that! You sound like you’re doing great, keep it up!

    Hi. its me again! So I have now been on soft foods for 10 days. I am doing pretty well, I think. LOL. I have only gotten semi-nauseous once and it was on Black eye peas. I had eaten the same thing the day before with no issue. I think I might have just eaten too fast. I have eaten ALL kinds of things too. I'm not one that can eat the same things over and over. I end up wasting a bunch of food though because making a dish, even a small one, I can only eat it like two times and then its gone. I'm not gonna lie, I have snuck a little sugar here and there with no issue. When I say a little though, I mean a little. I have had one square of a Hershey bar...lol...and a tiny sliver of a pumpkin bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes my daughter bought. I've learned to like cottage cheese with sugar free whipped topping and sugar free Jello (strawberry is my fave) mixed together....my aunt calls it pink lady and its delicious. I've learned to like more yogurts because I cant eat eggs for Breakfast every day!
    The weight loss is slow but it's not going up, so i'm okay with it. I lost 2 pounds last week. I am trying to walk outside a few days a week but I am still get tired very easy. I hope that goes away soon.

    ByeByeBandHelloBypass reacted to dorkyfaerie in Sleeve to bypass NOT for weight loss   
    I revised primarily for severe GERD, though there was also a lack of weight loss due to maladaptive eating to avoid GERD symptoms. I woke up from sleeve with severe GERD that never really went away. I woke up from bypass with zero GERD and have not had any symptoms since surgery on 9/18.

    Congratulations to everyone! I had my surgery on the 14th and am doing pretty well. I've been sick a few times due to eating too fast and will continue to keep training myself to fix that. My question to everyone is have you found an online accountability group that has a zoom, or whichever online forum, monthly group? Due to covid, my surgeons office has stopped all support groups and I feel like it would be beneficial to talk with others and hear how they are doing and suggestions for any issues that arise etc. I am on several FB groups but find that a lot of the post tend to be related to the same things and wanting others to tell them its okay to have soda or do things that they know we shouldn't be doing. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Hi All. I've been MIA - recovering and learning how to eat again. LOL
    My surgery (Lap Band removed and converted to GB) was 9-14. I spent one night in the hospital. I got to my room from recovery around 7 pm. I was still very groggy. I woke up about 10 PM and began walking the halls. I was determined to get up and walking. I went home 9-15, Tuesday, by noon. Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday were uneventful. It was just alot of me moving slow and sipping Protein and gatorade zero and Water. Friday, I woke up feeling amazing! I decided it was time to get all cleaned up and feeling human again. When I left the hospital on Tuesday, the nurse said if I didnt have a bowel movement in a couple of days, take some Milk of Magnesium, so I did on Thursday. I'm not going to go in to the whole sordid story but I did end up in the ER on Friday night for several hours for SEVERE constipation. Once that was cleared up, I've been good to go ever since. Sunday I was up cleaning house and walking 2 miles outside. I returned to work (desk job) on Monday, one week post-op. I had my followup with my surgeon on Tuesday, 9-22. He said everything looked great. He advised me to take Miralax daily to help with the bathroom issues and then he said I was released on Thursday (10 days post op) to have soft foods. Yesterday was Thursday and I was soooooo happy to be able to eat food! I managed to hit over 60 grams of protein yesterday without drinking one dang Protein Drink. It was heaven. I'm eating slow and chewing well. I'm still not hungry but just forcing myself to eat the small meals...5-6 a day suggested by my surgeon. I have lost 22 pounds since starting my pre-op liquid diet...10 since surgery.
    I hope everyone is doing AMAZING!!!

    Well good. After scrolling through this post and seeing all of the of the hard work paying off, I felt like I should say something. I have been on the other side of the coin for some time so I feel like it’s nice to be appreciated for what you’ve accomplished.

    Watch Dr Vuong’s video on YouTube about what to eat after weight loss surgery. He’s a Bariatric surgeon and tells you what you need to know at each stage of the process. Very helpful!

    Well I’m scheduled for sept 8 and I wish my husband was more involved I been doing a lot of researching watching videos and reading books etc... sure my husband came with me to the seminar but I can’t get him to listen to me about the journey after surgery he thinks by listening to the seminar he knows it all and the rest I’m over reacting. He cares more for his mutt then he does me so this journey I’ve started is all me and I’m very proud of how much I’ve done on pre-op diet I went from 306 lbs. to 288 but I still have to weight myself Sunday I’m hoping for 280 but wait and see. But hopefully everything will turn out great one day at a time. Gl sept. Surgeries
