I am 6 weeks out today and until just a few days ago I felt the exact same way. It does get better. I'm still struggling with Protein and water....but seem to be adding a few more ounces every day. Keep your chin up and your eye on the prize.

I had surgery the same day.. at first when I was on a liquid diet right after surgery it was so easy.. but once I introduced food.. it all went down hill from there

I am in my 4th week and feel exactly the same! In the same boat. Just feel blah, not worth eating the 2 oz pureed foods. Hating the Protein Shake because they r too sweet. So today I poured half premeir Protein shake and half cold Water in a sippy cup and drank that most of the day. Th e first time I got 11 oz of protein shake in. really cut down the sweetness. No weight loss in 4 days and can't understand why, only getting in 300 cals at most! I am hoping this is the worst of it. This too shall pass. Really No choice in the matter.

Focus on fluids first, then Protein and Vitamins ! I'm 12 days out and was in the ER yesterday with severe dehydration a UTI and double pneumonia. Just being hydrated made a huge difference for me today ! Seriously changed everything !

I'm at month 9 and still don't get all the Water and Protein in. Forget to eat most of the time and drinking water really is hardest thing ever! Just not a drinker. But try my best. Did finally started getting more protein when the Hair loss started! Probably get 60g a day

Hi, I'm new here! I had the gastric bypass on 04/24/14. I'm just finishing my second week. I have days that I feel good, and days like today that no matter what I drink I feel nauseous. I take all my Vitamins, and drink 48-64 ounces of Water daily. My problem is they took me off my blood pressure medication and I'm retaining Fluid. Today I have an appointment with my primary care to put me on a new blood pressure medication that helps with retaining fluid. My blood pressure was 163/102 yesterday. I have only lost 2lbs since the surgery and yes it's frustrating but overall I know the big picture will be success!

Hang in there! I had mini bypass 4/23 I'm just now starting to feel good again. I split my Vitamins up between morning and night so I'm not taking them all at once, maybe try that to help with the nauseous feeling? Also, my weight loss has been really slow too, it sounds like you know why but also, just this morning i was down 5 lbs from yesterday so don't be surprised if it kicks in quickly. I think I needed to get hydrated and start adding a little bit of calories for mine to start up. My body didn't take well to Clear liquids at all !

I'm always surprised by the variety of recommendations from different Drs. My first two weeks post op was broth, Jello and Water. Two full weeks; then to solid food as tolerated. Barely ate any food. Don't recall when I started Vitamins (2003; rny). Don't worry so much about the food. Drink, maybe some Isopure for Protein. But like my Dr. said, we have plenty of excess calories to use up for the first few months. Be happy you don't feel like eating. "Make hay while the sun shines!!". Trust me, you'll eat more than you want to later. Good luck.

I can tell you it does get better!!! You've probably still got swelling and it is taking up extra space and you just aren't as hungry. Once the swelling subsides you will have a bit of an appetite. Hang in there!!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
