When does the gas go away? That gas that makes you feel hungry, but you're really not hungry because it's GAS??? Ugh! The GasX strips help, but will I have to take them for the rest of my life?

7 pounds lost! Yay for you. I am so happy for you. I obviously cannot tell you when the gas goes away but am so looking forward to finding other's replies. I will tell you I complained to Dr. Campos about the same thing. Told him I was starving and my stomach was grumbly. He said it was gas and would last 7-14 days. Holy moly!

I am so proud of you weight loss so far. I have nothing but I blame it on the lack of a bm and all the gas. I am so excited to watch your progress. xoxo to you, and your beautiful family!

Bahahaha!! Tiffy is so right!! I'm glad to know that the gas is temporary.

Jennifer, the 7 pounds was what I lost during my preop diet. I haven't weighed since a week ago Monday, I don't even own a scale. My plan is to weigh myself every Monday when I go to work on the same scale to see what I've lost. I despise scales and refuse to own one, I would totally be one of those people whose life gets consumed by it. But I'll sure let ya know when I find out Monday! :) I already feel like I may have lost a bit!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
