Great! Take it slow, and don't worry about what you are NOT eating, but what you are eating.

Way to go you!!!!!

Just was there, it gets easier, but these first two days are Suckville - population You.

4 days later it gets better exponentially.

Yaaaaas! Way to go RedOrangeSunrise!

How are you feeling today?

Although it feels crappy, it also feels so good to be "on the other side", doesn't it? The anxiety was killing me before!

It does feel great to have the surgery over with. I feel really tired, nauseated, and have awful gas pains. I graduated from ice chips to small sips of Water. Tomorrow, I get to have an instant Breakfast. I'm using hot pads on my tummy and walking every time I get up to pee. Really looking forward to moving past this stage.

This sugar free instant breakfast is the best thing I've ever tasted. Taking very small sips and watching the golden girls on TV. Still on IV fluids. Still using the heating pad. I very much hope they'll let me go home today!

Yess, enjoy it! I was in a rush to get out of the hospital too (i was outpatient, but they told me to stay as long as i wanted), but now i wish i could be back there. The bed is comfy, the blankets are warm, and mostly importantly, the pain meds go straight into my IV.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
