I made one week......Happy 1 week surgiversary to me!



Recommended Posts

I made it through my first week. I did not experience pain from my incisions or from my new sleeve, but the AIR, GAS...whatever you may call it has been mortifying. I still have some of it left, so I walk, walk, walk, dance, move around and repeat these steps over and over again. Also, I have been having an issue with making sure I have enough fluids, I love Sonic ice so I always get a Route 44 cup and eat that during the day and sip the Water as it melts. I am determined to find what works for me and make this change.

I am two weeks out and it does get better, I still have some issues from the gas but my biggest issue is acid reflux. The first week I struggled to get enough fluids in now I am reaching the targets easily and dont have to take tiny sips any longer.
I have found the broth from chicken noodly Soup is the easiest thing to eat and tastes lovely.

I'm 4 days post op. Finding stuff to eat of drink is so much harder than I thought it would be. It takes me 90 min to sip a Protein shake! But I think I'm doing ok in general. Ready to move onto real food someday!

I'm 5 days post op and still feeling a bit sore but have cut back on pain meds so maybe I'm just noticing it more because of that. Getting in enough fluids is hard.

Have you started driving? Are you using pain meds? Do you have any weak spells? Thanks in advance! And yes, God's strength is amazing!

      My name is Jose and I am from the UK, I had a gastric bypass a month ago so I am at the beginning of my weight loss journey.
      I would like to know how many calories I should be eating a day to stay healthy, thank you for your time

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
