August Rush in bandland!



Recommended Posts

So I am 2 days post-op...I was banded on monday 8-9-10. I am doing fine except for the gas being really annoying and almost more painful than the surgery itself.

Weighed myself this morning, and I have met my first weight loss goal. :)

I have the main big one, but I have 4 smaller ones. I was so excited when I hopped on the scales this morning, and the big number started with a 2.

I am one week out today and feeling okay. Just gassy, still. And I second the need for something salty- all this artificial sweetner is not my cup of tea. But I'm not really hungry yet....I'm sure that will come soon enough...

You know what? I'm actually liking these liquified Soups. I've got Butternut Squash, Vegetable, Cream of Potato and Cheddar Brocolli. They really are yummy and better than just broth.< /p>

Tomorrow I am officially on this side of August Rush! Here I come....

I made it through. I'm banded!! Had a really long day. Had some bad gas pains around my rib cage but walking has helped. I still have a foggy brain from the drugs. Otherwise, I'm doing well. No pain other than gas. I'll write more later.

Jen how are you doing?

Hi Everyone,

I was banded on Monday and am doing well, no real gas pains or headaches, just a little sore. I'm grateful since I have to go back to work tomorrow. I'm not really hungry but I am worried I'm not getting enought Protein in this stage (clear liquids), I can't wait to add Soups to the menu juice and ice pops.

Glad to have you all to share this with!

Hi everyone!

I'm joining August Rush :thumbup: I was banded on Monday. So far, feeling a lot better but still incredibly sore around my belly button. chicken broth was absolutely amazing for about a day and already I'm bored. Looking to move onto better Soups.

Gas is still killing me ... gas x strips (after 2 boxes in 2 days -- bad i know) is not helping any longer. can we take tums?

Another Question: anyone do any sugar free frozen yogurt or sorbet? Is chocolate flavor off limits?

Nice to join the August-ers!!

Khloe, my doc's office specifically reccomended liquid Mylanta with gas releif in it. They said it gives better releif than Gas X. Wish they would have mentined that before I already went out and bought the Gas X.

I was given Mylicon (sp) it's a liquid medication that is used mostly in infants. That did help me along with the gas-x strips. Honestly, it took me over 6 days to start to feel better from the gas. Last night 7 days post-op I slept in my bed for the 1st time.

That is how I felt about chicken broth, I started gagging a few days in. My doctor is following a strict diet - Clear liquids for 7 days after, then 7 days of full-liquids, then to pureed. I see him tomorrow so I'm hoping I can move on soon.

Best of luck!

Thanks! I'm definitely going to pick up a different gas relief medicine. I can't wait for sugar free sorbet and some chocolate Protein Drinks. I'm on Clear Liquids for 14 days!!! Then onto full liquids for another 15 days before moving to solids. I cant believe I won't be eating a solid anything until September 9th -- so sad. haha! I'm definitely going to have salmon ... my dad made this stuffed salmon last night that had me craving!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
