I just had my Obrera balloon inserted Thursday, Jan 5th 2016. Kind of painfull. Thew up a lot the first night. Still nauseous on Saturday. I can't wait until this first week is done. I'm sure the pain will subside. I have a craving for miso Soup. I'm going to order some and see how it goes. Otherwise I'm drinking coconut water; drinking no caff tea and eating fruit veggie popsicles I got from sprouts.

Note: This forum doesn't give a balloon option on the Surgery category under my picture.

I was pretty miserable the first few days, although not as bad as I had expected (based on what I had read in advance). After ~ 3 days I started to feel a lot better - hope you do too. :-)

Popsicles and Jello helped me a lot. Miso soup sounds like a good option, too. Just take your time easing in to soft/solid foods. Hope all goes well - good luck!!

Ok. Tomorrow is the day! at 2 pm, I will be me + balloon.

This pre-op diet is so hard. I couldn't imagine having to do this for weeks. I can barely manage three days.

I had a little meltdown last night. I was like "Im not going to be able to do this." So glad my husband was there to pull me out of my funk.

Hang in there ... it will get easier. Well, after it gets harder. ;-) You won't want to eat much so you probably won't feel hungry, but you will likely feel pretty crummy for a few days. Have Popsicles on hand, Jello and clear Protein drinks (if you can stomach them and they're readily a available). broth is also a good option - especially Bone Broth (given the high protein), if you can stomach it. Just remember - it will get better. Cheers!!

Thanks everyone. Wow. It been an eventful few days.

The hospital experience was frustrating and only added to my anxiety about this whole situation.

My doctor was 1 1/2 hours late. So I had to lie/sit there in a gown hooked up to IVs and monitors for longer than I should have.

Finally it was over and I was back home. Taking sips of Water and even a few bites of a popsicle. Then my stomach started hurting. I took a short nap but that didn't t seem to help. So the inevitable happened: I threw up.

The night was long. I kept waking up every 2 hours or so to take in some Water and just walk around for a while.

Today has been better. I had some African Red Tea (yum) then later some chicken broth. So far so good. No more nausea or throwing up. Maybe tomorrow I can mange a Protein shake. Wish me luck!

Oh man. Im confused? How many calories should I be taking in right now. I can "eat" and drink all day long and still only manage about 200. How does everyone else manage this??

Hello all, glad to have found this forum! I had the ReShape dual balloon insertion on 1/17. The 36 hours after I got home were beyond awful. I was dry-heaving constantly and my entire abdomen felt awful. All of the meds that I was given to help would be vomited out as soon as I took them. My dr gave me anti-nausea suppositories and those really helped.

Right now, though, I have consumed very few calories and am finding it impossible to get many in. Over the course of the day so far I have been having a sip of Water every few minutes, tried 1/2 a popsicle, had a bite of Jello (ew), had a few sips of an ensure shake (per my dr) and gagged down a package of pudding. My abdomen just HURTS I've read many scary reviews online where people had the balloons removed because they couldn't tolerate them. I truly hope that doesn't happen for me!

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
