Swallowing pills?



Recommended Posts

How often after being sleeved did people start swallowing whole pills and how many at a time? Before surgery I could swallow 4 or 5 small-medium sized pills with no issues.

Im 6.5 weeks out. They had me swallow my capsules the first thing I swallowed the same day if surgery. I did 3 capsules that day- 1 every 15 min. Now I wait less than a min between my pills and do fine. I haven't ever crushed one- have taken 1 Tylenol once since surgery.

I'm on Omeprazole and that's a pull they started me on after surgery I'll be oon for 3 months. I've taken Tylenol for headache as well but I use the ones that have the little beads inside the pill capsule. They seem to work fine.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.
