2 1/2 Months Post Op And Pregnant



Recommended Posts

Also, you can do it. Remember your baby will take all the nutrients from you they need. Stay hydrated is a major concern, then Vitamins, then food. I have been unable to take Vitamins but babies are still healthy and growing. I also eat every 2 hours to get in calories but I havent gained any weight although the babies are 2pounds each :)

Thank you for responding. I've been dilated twice and doc was possibly going to do another one next week but cannot now. I can hardly eat. He says overtime, if I'm careful it should heal. He said right now focus on fluids, Proteins, I have to increase fat intake and carbs. Since its so hard for me to eat he recommends a higher calorie Protein shake for now. I'm so worried that this baby will be mal nourished. He also says I have to figure out a way not to lose more than 20 lbs during this pregnancy. Idk how ill do that if I have no desire to eat. Currently, I regret this surgery. I pray it gets better. I meet with my obgyn tomorrow. I need to find out her knowledge with this and of she's high risk. I also live in ny, where about are you?

I lived in Long Island, until a few months ago. Now, I live in Florida. Why wont they redilate you? Doing so while pregnant is not dangerous.

He says going under a sedative is so early on. I suspect I'm only 5 weeks. When were you dilated?

I was dilated about the same time. I was informed the earlier the better. So about 6 weeks. Can you eat slider foods without vomiting? Mashed potatoes, Jello, etc? Or you vomit everything you eat?

Hi, my obgyn and surgeon recommend to wait. My surgeon says its a high risk pregnancy. Obgyn said no , which I don't care for. I'm going to find another one. I maybe can eat 3 bites of something if I'm lucky. Of course, Italian ice goes down. I'm trying to drink ensure now. I feel horrible, no energy. I had a bag of IV Fluid last night. I told my surgeon I'm never hungry, he says that's a good thing. I don't know if I should seek out a new one.

Oh, as long as those few bites stay down you are okay! I thought you could not tolerate any solids. I was the same way, even after I was dilated. 3-4 bites and I was done. As time goes on, being pregnant your body will let you eat more. I left my surgeon after he tried to redilate my pouch to a regular persons sized stomach. I see my regular ob and a high risk ob. After the first trimester of loosing alot of weight, nausea, and vomiting. I feel so much better. I sent you a private message with my contact info if you have any questions! What part of NY are you in?

At 12 I made a shake with ensure and 1/2 banana, I'm still drinking it and its now almost 2 I only drank half. How does fetus survive if I'm getting no nutrient? I'm also tired all the time.

The fetus uses all your stored Vitamins, not necessarily what you eat. I slept the first 12 weeks. Around week 15, I started getting some energy. Are you still able to take Vitamins?

Hello hamdan. Good to see you around. How's your pregnancy? How far now? Any moment yet? So glad you are pulling threw & hopefully can drop the pounds as soon as the babies are born. What does your spouse think about all this?

I am 31 weeks now, and am pulling through.

What does my spouse think of what? Twins? RNY?

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
