NORMAL!

I never had actual regret, but I did have some freakout over the fact that the majority of my stomach was rotting in a Mexican bio-dump somewhere. Also when you're not eating for so long, you start to feel like it's never going to end and you can't face another sickening sweet Protein shake.... food is a VERY emotional thing for a lot of us. When someone interferes with my ability to have it, I get extremely emotional.. I cried on more than one occasion during my PRE-OP because I couldn't have what I wanted. I felt so stupid, but this is reality.

Also remember that your body has been through a huge physical trauma. Take it easy and cut yourself some slack. You are completely normal and this will pass and you'll be rocking your sleeve in no time.

Houston17,

I couldnt stand the sweetness either so I used plain koolaid powder, instant Decaf coffee, or plain cocoa powder in them to cut that and it works great! sugar free Jello powder also works but is a little sweeter. :D

I am feeling the same way...I just had mine done on 4/8 and I'm trying really hard not to be negative, but all of a sudden I just get freaked out about was this the right choice, and is this really healthy? People I work with who have had it done seem so happy...so I'm really hoping it gets better. It doesn't help that it is so difficult to get all the Water and Protein in. I want to do everything I'm told, but my body isn't listening. I'm having a really hard time sleeping at night as well, as I keep having nightmares, and that too, I hope passes. We just have to stay strong and believe that it will get better!

Stef it's ok it will get better I assure you. If you look on here everyone has felt the same way. But when you heal you will be so glad you had it done. You are only 5 days out you can't expect to be better in five days. If you can't drink all that much who cares just do what you can. You will adjust. Expect your side to hurt for at least a month. Some stop sooner some stop later. It will stop. What you are going through is normal. Just hang in there. Remember its a journey. Also in the words of us past fat people you can only eat that whole pizza one bite at a time. So give it time. Oh and you will never be able to eat another whole pizza again!!!! Isn't it wonderful!

It really does get better, and this range of symptoms and feelings are pretty typical. One thing I've found to be true - no two people have the same experience. We are all unique in the way we respond to surgery, both physically and emotionally. I remember reading all these threads about people going back to work in a week or two, and I wondered if there was something wrong with me. Turns out it was just my unique experience.Just focus on following your plan and staying hydrated, and before you know it, the time has passed and things start looking up. Good luck!

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
