I finally feel human again! Ugh...as bad as it was, I feel so much better today, day #9. So far no nausea today. I'm on my second shake. Even some ounces of Water went down fine. So glad! Pain has greatly reduced to tolerable. I'm so sorry I was not able to keep the list updated for everyone else having surgery this past week and into this week. Good luck and speedy recoveries to everyone going tomorrow! Welcome to all of the new folks! I'm able to move to soft foods this week. Tried Soup yesterday, but was a bad day in general. I don't think it was Soup related. I will try either the ricotta bake or some refried Beans tomorrow. I'm down 27 pounds in just over 3 weeks (with a 2 week preop).

Atlanta, I'm so glad to hear you are doing better. I'm sorry I haven't been keeping the list up either...I haven't been able to sit at my actual computer (just posting from my iPad) so I haven't been able to do copying and pasting.

So glad to hear good news from you! Keep recovering!!

I'm up tomorrow along with a number of other sleevers-- good luck to us all!

I was just reading some of the older portions of this thread, looking for similarities in what has been reported. Not surprising, the one thing that I am going to hold on to over the next week is the message that "It will get better. The discomfort is only temporary." I'm counting on this one.

Again, thanks for all of the posts that you've all made as this really has greased the skids, so to speak, for the rest of us.

My surgery is at 7:15 in the morning. I'll post as I can and appreciate prayers from any of you.

It gets better each day... The pain will be temporary. I just got home from the hospital and am feeling much better than the last two days. Things are looking up!! :-)

Need some suggestions....I'm 6 days post op and feel like I'm struggling! I am basically living on SF pudding and juice. I've tried a couple different Protein Shakes since I've been home & they make me gag! I've gotten some cream Soups down but I don't like them. I'm just feeling a little down. I can start puréed food tomorrow so I'm hoping that will help.

This one tastes really good I even had it heated slightly and made it like a cup of hot chocolate! It has taken me two days to finish one because I get to full easily still. They were purchased by a friend of mine for me to try from the Vitamin Shoppe.< /p>

Thank you so much! It was really rough. It stunk because I did so well the first 3 days. The numbing they do during surgery really does wear off. The initial pain, I could deal with. The new pain was unbearable and then to add nausea to it! Whew.

Anyway, hopefully all of that is in the past!

All speedy recovery wishes and best of luck to you Christmas week sleevers! :-)

Man time truly does go quickly. It will be 3 weeks since my surgery tomorrow.. :blink:

Btw, for dinner, I had 4 oz ounces Wendy's Chilli... very delectable!! Doc said it was okay once you hit soft foods and I'm there now..so when you are in that zone, definitely try the Wendy's Chilli... you'll love it. I added a little shredded fat free cheese on the top.. yummy.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
