I used to get that feeling if I ate (aka drank) too quickly or too much. But it doesn't sound like you did either of those things.. How do you feel now?

I just used a heating pad it helped quite a bit as long as I used it. But still have the pain. Drinking Water. Going to have hot tea. The dr office called to make sure I wasn't having problems. Told her about the gas...walking and heating pad. I feel very weak don't know how much walking I can do but will give it my best today. Going to sams club this afternoon to get a few things get some walking in there. How r u doing? Going to be back on liquids for a day then soft for a day? You'll make it . Disappointing but only a few days. Good luck.

Today it hit home how much I miss overeating. My brother was killed 18 years ago today and it is a turning point because I was 18 when he died. I have officially lived with him as long as I have lived without him. I so just want to go to mcdonalds for a mcgriddle for Breakfast, lunch a Mexican food combination plate, supper sushi and an udon platter, and a large blizzard for a snack. Yes 'treating' myself is what got me into this mess and swallowing my emotions. Now I have to feel something other than overheating pain. The physical pain is much easier to deal with than emotional. I used to distract myself with working too much and school. I think I kept going to school to distract myself from dealing with the past. Now I just have to deal with emotion. Ugh. Need prayer today.

I'm praying for you :) Emotional pain is the worst kind of pain and I'm the same as you.. food is my drug to numb the pain!! I lost my mum suddenly almost 4 years ago. My thoughts are with you today because I know how hard it is on these days.. anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas. It makes you miss and think about your loved one even more than you do on any other day. And unfortunately the food only works for as long as you're eating it and then you feel even worse afterwards. Stay strong and I'll keep you in my prayers :)

Thank you I appreciate that. You are right I would feel worse after overeating but it was a distraction for me. Sorry about your mom. Loss is always hard.

I'm praying for you!!! Oh, I'm so sorry! My heart just aches for you :'( I totally understand the emotional eating. Try & remember the good memories with him...that may ease some of the pain during this time.....I was wanting to be an emotional eater today. Today was my first day back to work & I feel like I was hit by a train. I cannot eat because my stomach is tight. I'm miserable.

Well....I'M BANDED! feeling very good at the moment, decided to stay at the hospital over night because well why not, I enjoy having medical professionals watching over me.

My stomach was "floppy and stretched" so he gave me 5 Patterson stitches (sewed my stomach to the other side of my stomach) making it look similar to the sleeve procedure

Anyone have that?

Also NO GAS PAIN

Does that come later? So far I feel great, well wishes to everyone!

I'm glad you are doing well and life is good. I have never heard of that other procedure. Hopefully that helps as well. Keep us updated.

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

      2. OhMyGawdItzKla

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
