I was sleeved on the 18th and it hasn't been the easiest ride but mostly has to do to the nurses NOT doing what my doctor put in the orders. So when I got a Migraine they let me suffer for a day and 1/2 instead of giving me my meds like instructed. But I am home now and I have a few questions for some of you. Did anyone else come home with their JP drain still in and then go back in a week to have it removed? And for the 1st week I am on Clear Liquids but I'm supposed to get 60 grams of Protein my broth has 0 grams any ideas. Thanks and good luck to everyone.

Unjury also has an unflavored Protein Powder that is 21 grams of protein. I didn't have a drain at all. Premier Protein is pretty good it's 30 grams of protein in 11oz it comes in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry you can purchase it at Sam's Club and costco.< /p>

I was sleeved on the 19th and so far have lost 1lb. I have no appetite and have to work hard to drink a little bit of anything. I'm ok with one pound and will not be stressing over how much I lose in what amount of time because it's a given....IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.. i am a bit disappointed in my intake....but my family and friends are working with me to increase my fluids and I know I risk dehydration and a hospital stay if I don't stay on top of my A game. So thanks for all the feedback and support ~BariatricBeauties~

Sip sip sip! I have been getting my fluids in pretty good. About 30ccs every twenty minutes. I start my Protein Drinks again tomorrow. Two days post op. Feeling pretty good just tired and sore.

I feel you.

Today is day 12 of the liquids for me.

I just want to reach put and eat a piece of pizza, or anything! I don't feel like I'm starving, but man. I want some real food! I did have some hello earlier, but that did not help much. Maybe it's time for another sugar free popsicle.

30 cc (1 ounce) every 20 mins is perfect. That's what my surgeon told me to shoot for.

To get in the fluids you really have to begin first thing in the AM and sip all day long.

Good that makes me feel good! Some seem to think that was too much so soon.

Ok weight loss count, how much weight have you lost since surgery? I've lost 5 pounds. Let's see how much weight our march sleeves have lost so far.

I weighed in two days ago at one week post op and I was at ZERO pounds lost. I'll weigh in again at my two week date. I'm not worried about it though. I'm just following my post op diet.. the weight will come off when it's ready.

I'm exactly 2 weeks post op. I lost 9 lbs on the 1 week pre op diet, then 9 days post op I was down a total of 25 lbs, meaning 16 lbs lost in the 9 days post op. I didn't weigh myself for 5 days, and weighed in tonight, and I actually gained 2 lbs in those 5 days! I'm following the nutrition recommendations to the letter, so I'm not sure what that's about. Kind of disheartening. It has been a lot of work to comply with everything, and I expected to see better results.

      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?
