I am wondering if anyone else ever had to have a tube through your nose because you were dehydrated or not able to eat? I had to have one placed on tuesday because in was so dehydrated and couldnt keep anything down and was just vomitting for 2 weeks. I'm feeling so much better but my dr won't take the tube out until I can eat 800 to 900 calories on my own. Now my problem with eating food is I'm sure I can because I want to eat for the first time in so long but this tube down my throat makes me gag as it is I'm scared to eat food with it in. I don't want to lie and say I can eat and then not tolerate food once I have the tube out and have them put it right back in. Has anyone else had to go through this or maybe have some advice I'm really stuck. I didn't mention that I have been eating popcyicles without problems.

you poor thing! i hope it gets better for you! im sorry i have not had one so i dont know what you are going through. i would suggest that you tell your doctor that you have a hungry feeling again, and that you feel like gagging when you try to eat because of the ng tube.

i hope you are able to have this problem resolved soon. just remember that it will get better and this wont last forever.

its sometimes hard to picture a way out when you are in the momment of recovery.

I'm feeling Alot better, better then i have since I started my pre op diet and am actually glad they decided to do the tube. I did eat and have been eating all weekend. I hardly know the tube is there anymore. I'm going to talk to the dr office tomorrow and see if they will let me try eating on my own without the tube.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
