jesus lord mary and joseph!!! now what? am i gonna die? what if i did damage? how would i even know?????

Sorry ... i didnt mean to "scare u to death" and im sorry u werent informed of the seriousness of staying on plan before surgery... but im a "keep it real" person... n yes as the others mentioned uve said small amts & only a few times & with no leak symptoms, id venture to say ur probably fine, but i just wanted to stress that it is a serious issue because... IT IS! U asked, i gave my honest opinion based on my knowledge... they told us a story in my preop class about a man who ate a whole can of corn 1 wk out of surgery... got a leak n almost died... had to have multiple surgeries to remove corn kernels from all over his abdomen... anytime i thought of straying early on, that story came to mind... yes, chances r, u'll b fine, but even sum ppl that stay on plan get leaks... so y risk extra stress on ir new tummy!? R those few chips worth ur life? If my comments scared u back onto plan then it served it's purpose well... dont stress just get back on track n follow ur plan @least until ur healed :-)

Gawd, here we go again. The sky is falling the sky is falling the sky is falling. Scaring someone to death with absolute abandon.

Please remember, many docs allow their patients to start on regular food not long after surgery --- those docs must be wanton heretics....

Please stop with the over the top scare tactics...

thanks guys i appreciate it but now i am ruined mentally. i can't stop thinking about this. what if i ruined my new sleeve and caused a staple line leak ???

i searched symptoms. luckily i dont have any pains or cramps or fevers. i learned my lesson i just hope im ok and didnt cause any damage

I'm not sure you're fine but I'm glad you are on the straight and narrow now. When you have a leak you don't get instant symptoms. That only happens as organs start to shut down or begin getting damaged. It does not matter if you ate a lot or a little, one bite can do it. So now you just have to closely listen to your body. If you develop a low grade (or higher) fever, left shoulder pain, nausea, weakness, heart racing, shortness of breath, any one of these symptoms, you need to get tested right away. Do not delay, don't come here for medical advice, and call your surgeon asap.

You might consider meeting with your nut as soon as the snow clears because it sounds like you went into this and left surgery woefully uninformed. I don't want to see that you've wasted your money and risked your life only to come out of surgery chowing on carbs and inappropriate foods.

Hopefully all is well, but listen to your body. You might be fine, you might not. What's done is done. Don't do it again :)

I just shared these responses with my surgeon who called for follow up today. I am four days out of surgery. I wanted to know if he was using "scare" tactics as you claim. I disagree with these responses. This is very dangerous and could lead to tears and leakage within the first three weeks. in addition you are only setting yourself up for failure with vsg if your wondering how quickly or what you can put in your mouth other than what is on protocol. Vsg is a tool not just a quick fix . It is as mental as it is physical. All of this was taught to me with the vigorous protocol I was put through prior to surgery.... Just sayin... Go ahead and eat what you wish ...I'm following protocol from the # 1 US sugeon in VSG. You are NOT doctors and are only fooling yourself if you think this ok. Love me or hate me.. Just callin it like I hear it!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
