Sorry folks. Haven't been on in a few days. Been a rough go. Still struggling with fluids but a bit better. Living on Water and a bit of chicken broth maybe 100 calories a day. Cut tolerate much. Also hit a wall each evening and cut complete my med regiment at end of night or will throw it up. The nausea and hunger are killing me. Cant even tolerate Protein Shakes. Hoping I wake up one day and I can resume normal stage stuff. 5 weeks so far on liquids is killing me. My wife is doing great I her recoveey and is ahead of schedule. On day I went to get her for discharge wound up being a nightmare. She was so excited to go home and on morning of discharge they say they found tumor cells from the liver biopsy. They did a full body scan. No masses found but she has to follow up with oncologist. I've lost 50 lbs since preop diet. It look haggard and sickly. I'd trade it all back to not feel sick like this. I cant live on water and nausea. So still not out of the woods. Your support and prayers Have been appreciated.

I'm late finding this thread. What a horror show you have been through. I hope and believe that things will turn around soon.

I too had h pylori discovered during my sleeve surgery. They said it did not show up during my pre-op EGD. The surgeon prescribed a very aggressive course of antibiotics, which I was told to crush and take along with all my other crushed meds. The antibiotics made me so nauseous that I couldn't keep anything down.

After a week of failing to get in an appreciable amount of medication or nutrition, and becoming severely dehydrated, I ended up delaying the treatment of the h pylori until after my stomach had recovered. I don't know if your case is similar to mine, but you might ask your doctor if you could just concentrate on healing now and treat the h pylori later.

I wasn't able to drink more than that at discharge. In fact it probably took me at least a week to even get 40 ounces in. It may be as one poster mentioned you body trying to do double duty and fight the H pylori and heal.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
