Recommended Posts

Loving hearing how everyone is doing. Those that are not doing so well, it will get better, just take it one day at a time, stay hydrated and get that Protein in. Was wondering if you guys would do me a favor right above your name you can rate this topic, would you take a moment to do so, thanks Sleeve Divas and Dudes.........5 days and counting down til my day.......

Question-has anyone not been given the 2 week pre op diet and only given 4 to 7 days that is a lower BMI? My surgery is Tuesday afternoon and I start on all liquids tomorrow. The nurse told me since I am at a lower weight that I didn't need to do the entire 2 weeks because it had to do with the size of my liver. I tried to start yesterday and I have no control. Has anyone HONESTLY not followed the pre-op diet?

Yes he just called back. He said its just the stomach contracting and i might be feeling it a little more than usual. As long as its not associated with vomiting or nausea im ok. So its just my stomach getting back to normal.. if it continues for more than a couple weeks, might need muscle relaxers. We shall see

Hey everybody.

Was just sleeved Monday the 11th. Feeling better everyday. I think I've been one of the lucky ones as I haven't had much nausea no vomiting and able to keep everything down that I've attempted to try. I think the worst thing for me so far has been back pain and I've been having a lot of gas pain. Seems to hit me everytime I drink something.

Experiencing no hunger whatsoever. I have to remind myself to eat. The sipping of Water throughout the day is one of the hardest things to do.

I'm not sure how much I've lost since the day of surgery. I asked the hubby hide the scale so I don't become obsessed cuz lord knows I would!

I came home from the hospital today. So far, I have been doing pretty well. I have been able to drink fluids without any problems. My doctor has actually cleared me for full liquids already. I have had a few sips of broccoli and cheese Soup. I am feeling a little off kilter today. Part of me is still in shock that I actually had the surgery!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
