Question for all post op vets ( at least 2 years post op or longer)



Recommended Posts

Do things ever fully return to normal after years of being post op?

What i mean by that is are you able to drink Water like used to before surgery. ( i don't have to sip Water anymore, but i'm definitely not going through as much water as i used prior to wls)

Do you still go through issues with certain foods agreeing with you or food sensitivities?

Do you still ever drink Protein shakes?

You'd better glean whatever pearls of wisdom you can from them quickly as the successful vets......the very ones who have have helped bring many of us to a much better weight and state of being.....are being permanently banned from this sight.

The good news is....the newbies that feel like lost sheep can take comfort in the fact that any and every imaginable "bariatric product" is only a click away. They will be able to shop until their heart is content around here. Lot's of product for sale.

The 2 year plus successful vets don't rely on such products.....don't buy them......therefore are of little value here, it would seem.

It's a sad state of affairs around here.

If the goal were for us to help each other lose unwanted weight and improve our lives.......the vets would stay and the interaction here would flourish.

Sadly.....the goal seems to be to sell product.

I and many other would gladly pay a membership fee to keep the doors open and support the costs associated with running the sight.

Notice that there is more whining here than actual advice?

@@ShelterDog64 most of your food sensitivities are gone? That's good.

Can you drink Water normally now?

If you want advice from a 2 year post op veteran, have some patience someone will eventually answer.

Your stomach will not return to its pre-op size, but you'll find that you're able to eat and drink more, as time goes on. Sometimes previous food preferences return, sometimes they don't. Not everyone's story is the same.

Disclaimer: this is info I gleaned from previous posts on this site, and some personal internet research.

I find that searching the different fora here can sometimes give you the answers you want/need.

I'm a two plus year vet. I still have problems with really dense meat, like pork chops. I have to chew really well. I can drink Water fairly normally. Still not with meals and still occasionally drink Protein shakes, when I don't get enough Protein any other way.

You may as well get used to it.

That's what happens when there are precious few successful vets around.

I am over 5 years.

You can't eat like you did before. Does it get better after a couple of years in terms of how much you can eat at one time? Yes, but it still isn't a lot. I can do a cup but it depends on what is in that cup.

@@xoxococojay - two years out, I drink Water like I used to (actually happened by month 3 or 4. I still can't eat anything bread like without being really careful to really chew it up. There is something about stuff that just crams up in the sleeve. But I eat everything else, just much less. I also eat better quality stuff because when you only eat 4 ounces at a time...you can. Only downside if you can call it one is you are forever going to be getting doggie bags when you eat out unless you stick to a small appetizer.

Well, the OPs questions have been duly answered. With as little drama as possible. There was No need for all the "the sky is falling" comments about everyone leaving. Just give it time, and someone'll answer.

To answer your other question, I am a recently sleeved friend of a 3 year post op RNY patient.

I was initially skeptical of WLS (research vs cost benefits) until watching his transformation up close and personal, developing hypertension, and waiting to move to a state with few hiccups regarding coverage prompted my surgery decision. I stalked BP for 1 year before creating a profile a few days before my surgery..

So not only do you name-call and stalk people, but you have reading comprehension trouble too? "Recently sleeved" is not 2+ years post-op and being a friend of someone who is doesn't make you a vet either.

This is the kind of advice-givers who will dominate going forward, now that all of the reliable people have been banned. Lord help you all.

      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.
