I have a question. Has anyone noticed that their sense of smell and taste is different? I feel like I am hypersensitive and smells make me nauseous Also some foods do not taste the same to me at all.

I am still having some trouble eating solids and they can come back up on me so it is really trial and error.

My preop weight was 217 the day of my surgery 8/30 I was 207 and today I am 180. I really like the lack of hunger but I do not enjoy food at all and also still have bad reflux despite the hiatal hernia repair? Any help or comments would be appreciated.

I used to be able to drink 2 or 3 of the large bottles of Water a day before surgery. Now I'm barely thirsty and HATE water. It is so weird. I tried every bottled water brand out there' date=' and can't stand any of them. The only thing I drink now are Protein Shakes and Vitamin Water Zero. And even then it is barely 1 of each a day. I miss my water.

I've never been keen on water but used to drink gallons of cherry diet coke. Now I can literally go hours without even thinking of drinking. Maybe it's because I can't drink fizzy drinks now. Having said that, while in hospital I was really nauseous and was becoming dehydrated until I bought myself some coke. I shook the bottles to reduce the fizz and was able to keep them down. Oh and ice lollies.

I'm the same way. I struggle to get all my fluids down. I'm just not thirsty and have no desire for Water or crystal light or anything

I do hope this eventually passes. Having to force myself to drink for the rest of my life is not a nice prospect.

Well, after the first few days my nausea subsided but about two days after being re-admitted to hospital it came back with a vengeance and I hardly ate anything for the 3 weeks I was there. I also couldn't even face fluids half the time and ended up on a drip. After coming home it eventually subsided but does come back intermittently. This morning, I had scrambled egg and really struggled to eat it as just looking at it made me feel sick. I really hope this eventually passes.

2 months today an feeling great starting 280 vsg day 247 an today 207 first month lost 32lbs 2nd month only 8 lbs. 8 don't sound like much but i am happy.

Slow and steady wins the race and also reduces the risk of baggy skin.

I'll be honest. It is not my long-term intention to diet. I despise diet foods. But my problem was portion size and this op has certainly changed that! I was a typical binge eater. Well, no more.

Hey Diamond, I was sleeved 8/6 too. we are sisters! Glad to meet you.

I'm down from 230 heavy wt, 221 day of surgery, to 183 this morning. I was feeling down because in 2 weeks I've only lost 2 lbs. my mind is screwing with me... So I tuned into VST for some encouragement and support. So glad to have this.

I have a huge list of things to be grateful for. Thanks everyone for being out there.

I'm not eating much, am good about using MFP to track, and sometimes I sit down to track because my mood is low and I'm sure I ate too much in that day, of course to find out that I didn't. My mind is really doing push ups to try and keep me sick in this battle. Deep breath. It's going to be ok.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
