I got home and I am really sore but I haven't has any nausea at all. So that's exciting!! It's kind of surreal that Im really here with a gastric sleeve. I've waited e very long time for this. Did anybody else just go through the surgery? I keep sipping on Water and broth but I am scared I will over do it so I am taking TINY sips. Any help with that would be great. What else are you guys including on your liquid diet?

Hi Kelly,

I had my sleeve done on Monday (30th) and I am still having a good deal of pain. Water is actually the hardest thing for me to sip. My throat is ok but when it hits my stomach it hurts. It's like this small cramping pain every time. It's there with everything but mostly Water or Crystal Light. Nothing I can't handle but it sure is annoying. I am stressing a little about getting the Protein in. I can drink the shakes but to actually get in 60 grams of Protein? It's not happening. I am sure it will get better though. My most annoying symptom is dizziness. I had bouts of vertigo before the surgery anyway and the surgery just brought it on. Not sure why, maybe being in a prone position for too long. Very annoying though because I keep feeling like I am going to fall over and I can't bend down which is not good. Again though, I am sure it will get better. I am on the full liquid diet now so I am doing the shakes and last night I had pudding and I added unflavored protein to it. It was ok but today I just don't think I can stomach it. I had some yogurt too which is very good and chicken broth. I was worried too about overdoing it because I can't really tell when I am full since it hurts to drink anyway. I've just been winging it. :) So far so good I guess. I was really hoping I would do so well getting the protein in that maybe I would not lose any hair but I guess that isn't going to happen. Oh! I can also eat popsicles which are great. Good luck to you!!

I keep hearing more experienced sleevers that during ur liquid stage, its important to get in ur liquids. I am having a hard time bc i am on Clear Liquids and I hate the sweet taste of the clears!

My surgery was 4-30 as well. I had he complications (vomitting, nausea, & etc.) the 3 days after surgery. I didn't get discharge until Thurs. but you can have grits with skim milk as long as it goes through the strainer. It does feel funny going dwn but compared to Mon. & Tues. this is a walk in the park.

I had mine on the 30th, too. And sounds like we had the same problems, Suthern_girl...and I didn't get released until Thursday either. I know I need to try to get at least some Protein, but it's still painful to sip liquid which I hope ends soon. I did try some pudding and that seemed ok. Are you all still really bloated?? I am SO bloated...I can't wear my comfy "big" clothes that I wore before surgery. I didn't realize so many were sleeved on Monday. :)

Kelly, the only thing I've tried so far was the sf carnation Breakfast w ff milk, and theres not a lot of Protein in it. I had it yesterday and it was good. I had some other brand ( cant think of it right now) here but just couldn't drink it. How are you doing with protein?

It's not painful but awkward. I feel the liquids hit my stomach. They told me take deep breaths and that helps. I'm able to keep liquids down. It's the taste im struggling with...jello is now nasty to me....I had baby food bananas and it had a metal taste.

Hey everyone I had surgery on Tuesday, May 1st, and so far all I have been eating is crystal light, and Jello. Yesterday I tried some broth. Don't know if I should be starting my Protein Shakes since I am on clear liquids. For those who have SF popsicle, is there a specific brand you would recommend

I just bought these for after. http://www.lpsupplements.com/media/01/a20791913003fd3a4ade66_m.JPG. Hope it comes up where you can look. It has 50g of whey Protein isolates, no sugar. Read about it. I know I'm jumping the gun, but I had the money now. May not have it when I need it. If I don't like it I'll choke it down! Lol.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
