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.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
