@@relentless302, I had the same issues you describe since I started solid food on July 3rd (throwing up, stomach pain, having trouble knowing when to stop eating) and yesterdary I went back on liquid diet for a few days. My doctor's and my conclusion is that it was too soon for me to go on solid foods. It is an incredibly difficult balancing act to get enough Fluid and Protein. I haven't met those marks in a while. But I'm doing better now that I'm back on the liquid Proteins. I think we just have to do the best we can. If you keep having trouble tolerating food, you might want to talk to your doctor about going back on Liquid Protein for a while. Its a bit depressing, but its also a relief for me. We'll figure this out. Hang in there!

Hello all June sleeves

My name is Erica and had lap sleeve on 6/10/14. I'm doing ok but I am struggling with eating. I'm irony taking in a few bites and feel so awful with spasms after. How long does this last ? I'm i progressing to quickly ? I just want to feel semi normal again. I am very happy with my weight loss so far (down 20lbs). Any hel would be greatly appreciated !

Hi Erica! I was sleeved 6/2 and I can still only take 3 - 4 bites. What's so hard for me is every one on this site has a different progression of food. What has been wonderful for me is Greek yogurt & Tilapia. Pasta goes down well if I only have 3 bites. Also, a suggestion from a 2 yr vet of the sleeve said to set an alarm. 7 - Breakfast, 10 - shake, 12:30 - lunch, 3 - shake, and 6:30 dinner. I still don't hit all of that every day, but it has helped with "normalcy". OH - AND CONGRATULATIONS ON 20 LBS!!! That's fantastic!

My surgery was June 24. I too am having trouble getting enough nutrients, but I'm hopeful that each day will be better. Today I did 40 grams of Protein Shake, but only 34 oz. of Water. Taking all my pills is a big issue, but I got more down today than yesterday. I do have pain between my incisions. My skin is not red, or hot to the touch, so I am assuming that is still from the trauma of the surgery. How long should I expect that to last?

I'd like to know that too. My left side is extremely sore-when I lay down, I'm worried I'm going to tear something.

I have the left side pain too....surgery date was 6/9.....doc said it's normal but I wonder if it's ever going to go away

Hi Erica, I am struggling with eating also. I am only able to eat 1oz of pureed food then a few hours later, I am feeling hungry again and I too have what you call spasms and tightening of the stomach. I don't know what it is. I was thinking intense hunger pains but it's hard to say. Hang in there and good luck.

Hi msbarker2u, You may not be eating enough and your body is in starvation mode. While you may only be able to eat 1/4 cup of food, you should eat the same but more frequently throughout the day. Are you exercising? Exercising helps when the body is in starvation mode. I only eat 1oz but I walk alot. I hope this post helps. Hang in there as I heard it gets better.

I think I will cry when I get to onederland. Such a stall. Don't know how it's possible with 1/4 cup food portions. Big sigh.

My surgery was on 6/16 and my left-sided pain returned last week. I posted about it a few days ago and since the pain has disappeared. I woke up Sunday and the pain was gone. Hang in there all with left side pain...it will get better. I only assume the eating and drink in gets easier day by day. My Nut told me hydration first, so keep trying to get the fluids in. Good luck all!

PS: I have yet to reach my Fluid or Protein goals.

Sleeved June 3rd Hw: 250 Sw: 239 Cw: 224 I have been going from 223-225 it's frustrating but I've read about the stalls also, so I'm hoping soon it will get better.

Britt you and I have similar surgery dates and statistics. I'm going to watch you and see how our journeys compare.

My weight shot up a LOT for a couple if days but then dropped back down then stalled at 227 for 2 weeks. It finally went down but stopped again.

I feel the same way almost daily. We have to hang in there. It can only get better.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
