To clarify, it's the New Whey Liquid Protein Shots... that I heard were actually not recommended by most Nuts as the Protein is a mixture collagen, casein, and whey protein, which makes it not as good quality--and is the equivalent of really eating about 19grams of protein for every 40 grams of the protein shot.

Hey all. I'm recovering nicely. Just not hungry for liquids but sipping regularly. I keep thinking of what id like to be able to eat. It is torture. I still have some periodic discomfort not sure if its gas or reflux as I had neither in painful amounts prior to surgery. I'll continue gas ex stripes and milk of magnesia and prilosec till it all resides. Prayers and well wishes to all. Ready for mushies!!!

Hey July Sleevers, I'm 3 days post-op and doing pretty good. A little gassy but I'll get pass that. Hope everyone is doing good.

3 days post-op here as well - things are going OK so far. Lots of gas, and my incisions are itching like crazy! Other than gas, though, the pain isn't bad at all. I'm having a hard time getting all my liquids in, not to mention Protein. My surgeon said not to concern myself with the protein so much, though - liquids are more important.

Sleeved on Monday, home late Tuesday, feeling great today. I'm developing a routine instead of sleeping all day but I'm still resting and napping when I need to. Walked a mile yesterday and 1.1 miles today. Tomorrow I'm pushing it up to 1.5 miles. For those of you not accostumed to the heat, you have to walk early in the day. I train for The 3-Day for the Cure and my team starts meeting every Sat and Sun in July at 4:45 am. That's right, am! But it's too hot to get in real miles if you don't start early. Starting to get hydrated well. I can't hold much but I've had no pain associated with drinking. Enjoy!

Hey I am checking in today is day twelve and I am doing great! I am drinking my fluids and I tried eating malt-o-meal which is like furina and my stomach likes it...I can only eat two or three bites from a baby spoon and I am a full as a tick. I went to the gym earlier and walked 3 miles on the treadmill. I have energy too...I am so glad to have this part behind me and now I will keep trucking along and wait on the results...best of luck to everyone out there!

Girl! You're amazing! Send some of your super human healing abilities my way! I'm 10 days out and I'm just getting to the point where I can spend long periods of time out of bed. Today is the first day I feel like I can swallow pretty normally, too. I did have a post op blood transfusion, and some other complications, but I'm on my way! Getting better every day :)

Congrats on your speedy recovery!

      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 .
