Any other newbies on this journey out there?? Had my sleeve on Tuesday, 7/16; so I'm 9 days out. Day 3 has been the worst so far. Think I possibly have temporary (I hope) lactose-intolerance as I'm struggling with some bowel issues; but beyond that, I feel very good. Not being hungry all the time is wonderful. Still hard to get in the habit of not drinking for 30 min. before; during; and 30 min. after eating. How is everyone else making out?

Hi Debbie,

Im right there with you I was sleeved on the 15th. I had a mental break down yesterday but that was due to PMS :/ any how its hard for me to get all the fluids down! My doc wants me to get 64oz. In this is extract hard for me. I have not yet met this goal. Congrats on your sleeve and good luck :)

I was sleeved July 10th. Best decision I've ever made. Mine had been very easy API far. I'm on pureed foods now but it's an odd feeling. Not good, not bad, just odd. I'm down 34lbs. I'm eagerly waiting for real food!

My big moment was watching my kids not finish their meal and me not bring able to. The mental part is/was the hard part for me. I hate watching them leave food.< /p>

July 22, only 3 days out....NO WAY near 64 oz, although my post op instructions are to "increase my fluids to a goal of 64 oz" I am at maybe 20 oz, I am "full" all the time and then I have to take Carafate, Actigall and Prevacid ....UGH!!! I did manage to suck on a calcium citrate today.

I had mine on July 9 and I struggled with eating because I wanted to chew something and I was on my menstrual cycle during my second week. Purée week was hell for me but now I am on soft foods and I fell better. Keep up the great work ladies

I was sleeved on July 15th and so far I am doing well. I am still struggling with my liquid goal of 80 ounces and Protein goal of 100grams

My problem is that I am still in liquid stage and I do from time to time have what i feel is hunger pains..I thought that would not happen for months.

July 3 here. Down 23 lbs and super excited by that! Hard to get in my liquid and Protein also! The Water is a little easier now but still have a tough time some days. Today is the first day I made it to 56grams of protein and I'll have a yogurt before bed putting me at my 60gram goal. Hate the Protein Shakes so much! Only can tolerate Syntrax Nectar fuzzy naval with orange juice. Everything else I have tried sux! Even the ones I liked preop I can't stand! I also hate every calcium citrate I've tried so far! Yuck!!!!!

Had my sleeve done on 7/22. Also had 2 hernias repaired (umbilical and hiatal) the 2nd day was the worst! Today I'm day 4 post op and feeling alright. Doctor has me in puréed food already. Had scrambled eggs and puréed ham for Breakfast and chicken salad for lunch less then an oz. I tried cottage cheese for dinner and my sleeve didn't like that too much. Decided to have a Protein Shake and it's taking me a while to finish but it tastes so yummy! Taking my Vitamins has been the hardest !

Hi there! I also had my surgery on the 16th and am doing OK so far. I seem to feel better and better each day. I think I have lost about ten pounds so far.

I so agree about the Calcium. I ordered a chewable from Celebrate, and I couldn't get it down. I went back and ordered a couple different flavors of a chewy calcium and I'm hoping for the best. Maybe I will get lucky and it will taste like a tootsie roll, what are the chances

Postoperative day 4 here. I'm not hungry and I don't have any craving but I'm having a hard time telling when I should stop. I don't want to over do it. I have had no complications. I've had 1 1/2 muscle milk, a bottle Water, and 1/4 cup coffee. Hope that is ok. I know I'm not getting my daily requirements but I don't want anything else. No problems taking my Vitamins.< /p>

I'm 4 days post op too. I thought I was doing really well getting all my fluids in but it turns out I'm really not. I don't ever really get a sensation of being hungry or full. The only thing I do get is if I've had too much I get what feels like heart burn but it comes and goes, isn't a constant ache.

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

      3. biginjapan

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
