the more often u eat, the less often u will be gassy. we usually get gassy when our tummys are empty for a while. try snacking on something small each time you feel really gassy. itll stop sooner than later.

ohhh... ull be gassy because they pump you up with air and because you dont have anything in your tummy. suck on chewable gas x or use gas x strips. when u start on mushies like apple sauce, mashed potatos, etc.. take advantage. itll be hard to take in a lot so just do it often so that you have something fighting the gas! congrats & welcome to the losers bench!!

Thank u wit the eating but I just got surgery Monday

Walk, walk. Walk. I know everyone says it, but its the nest way to get rid of the air. I wad just sleeved on Monday and the first two days the pain was unreal due to the gas pain. But walking really helped, now its almost completely gone. Welcome to the club and feel better soon!!!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
