Feeling like I am regressing



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved 8 1/2 weeks ago. The last week has been so rough. I can't eat much of anything. Every bite of food makes me feel gross and nauseous. I am burping every five minutes and the bubbling from my throat is very annoying ( dr doubled my nexium for two weeks and then have to go in and see him if that doesn't work) . I am just concerned because of the lack of food I get in. I do meet my Protein every day by taking a shot of milk with Protein powder in it and then a shake for dinner. In this feeling it is hard for me to be positive and think that it will all get better. I am worried that this will last forever. Of course I have read that of course it doesn't , right now I am just scared. I expected to be able to eat some at this point and feel good .

I don't have any answer to this but just want to say I hope it gets better soon. My husband and I never had a problem whatsoever. I would be seeing the surgeon, and I am so sorry you have to go through this.

I get it. I'm pretty much at the same place you are. Getting very bored with the same foods, cause they dont make me feel icky. I try to eat food as much as I can, but I do have a Protein Drink every AM. But the scale stalls, the weight isn't coming off even doing the program and with exercise. Grrr. I miss enjoying food and if I get constipation one more time, I'll explode. It's going to get better...I know this deep underneath all this blah. But this is hard. Do you have support? I'm seeing a counselor once a week, this helps...my friends and family are great, but they don't get it. I try to look at little gains. My clothes are baggier, I fit better with the seatbelt. Am I totally convinced I made the right choice...not yet. Am I able to see some good, yes. So I hold on to that and hope it gets better like everyone on here says it will. Good luck to you.

Don't be scared. Your fear will bring about even worse things. This is a journey. A learning process. It's not for faint of heart. I was sleeved 9.7.16. I've had some challenges. But I'm learning. Get some help from your dietician... your not alone. And nothing last forever. Cheer up....

I am about the same length post op. I have been fortunate that everything I've tried seems to sit with me well. No major intolerance. However, I do find myself feeling uncomfortable and gurgly if I eat too fast or don't chew really thoroughly. I ran into that more when I moved to solid foods. I have to really work on reminding myself to go slow, take small bites, and chew.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
