Just looking to meet my December Surgery Pals



Recommended Posts

Hi, my surgery date is 12/27. Started the liquid diet today. I'm super nervous about the surgery and afterwards. It already feels like a long journey with all of the pre-testing and appointments I went through, but I'm ready to shed this weight!

Would love to hear from everyone who already did the surgery this month since we are half way through. How did it go? How do you feel now? Are you still hungry?

I'm on day 2 of the liquid diet and I might snap. Already snapped at my husband for asking a stupid question. And I feel really weak already. Then stupid husband decided dinner last night for everyone (except me) would be steak and loaded baked potatoes. Jerk. He's on my list today.

But, I've heard the first three days are the worst. Please tell me this is true. I can get through three days. A month will be so much tougher.

My dr. has me doing 2 weeks pre-op of liquids. Clear Liquids for a few days post -op and then back on Protein shakes for another two weeks. Then I get soft foods for three weeks.

Did anyone find any non-sweet Protein drinks? I've heard that even if you have a sweet tooth, it gets really old.

That's all for today (so far). Thanks for listening.

Congrats! Are you hungry? How are you feeling? And you are lucky you already get puree. I'm looking at soft foods starting on the 10th of January.

Hi all! I am new to this site and forum. I've found so many different December groups already, its confusing! I had RNY two days ago on the 12th. So far so good. I only spent one overnight in the hospital and that was miserable. Between all the alarms going off (oxygen levels, fluids or Tylenol drip running out etc), hospital noises, coming in to check vital signs, and being extremely uncomfortable in the hospital bed I got no sleep. I got home yesterday afternoon and yesterday evening was my worst pain wise. I have horrible pain across the top part of my back, where your bra sits. My surgeon said its from the surgery being so close to the spine and since I already have back issues it just aggravated it. So it makes sitting in the recliner, and laying down even more uncomfortable. I actually feel better standing and walking around. After getting 10 hours of sleep last night however I feel so much better today. Pain today is tolerable and I haven't had to take any pain medication. I've got helluva some gas in my lower abdomen but I can't seem to fart to save my life. I've never wished for a fart so bad ever! I've been sipping on Water all day with some diluted juice and broth thrown in. Tomorrow evening I get to try the Protein shakes and I'm pretty excited about that because I am over the clear liquids! Since being home its been weird seeing food on the TV or watching my husband eat. I'm not hungry but I feel like I should be eating. My husband is cooking dinner tonight for himself and my son so that will be interesting.. I feel like it will be slightly torturous!

        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.
