August Sleevers-How are you doing??



Recommended Posts

My surgery was 3 days ago!! It's a life changing decision, let me tell you that!! It's all worth it, though!! I can barely drink Water like I used to.. can't even finish 60 cc in 15 mins





For me, more room temp milk and 1/4 juice 3/4 water go down the best. Same with broth.

I was operated on 8/14. First two days were horrible. Nausea and shoulder tip pain were annoying but faded away. Day three I became teary - no idea why, I think just used to food to comfort me when I'm unwell. Now onto puréed foods.. Lost 16.5 pounds in 13 days. First day back at work and all of a sudden I feel like I have reflux and the nausea is back :( confused and trying to work out what had brought it on...

Hi Crystal. Glad to hear you are feeling good! I'm so jealous you get to start puréed foods today. You only had to wait 7 days after surgery? Totally not fair lol. I guess I shouldn't complain. Starting today I can have yogurt, cream Soups and cottage cheese. Too scared to try any yet this morning but I'll let you know. Lol

Surgery August 7th. Recovery went pretty smooth. I'm more so disappointed that I haven't lost more in three weeks. Didn't lose anything this third week. But I'm thinking maybe it's because I didn't walk twice a day like I was doing prior and I know I'm awful about getting Protein in. Regular Water has been decent. It's kind of making me wish I had done the Mini Gastric Bypass like originally wanted instead of the sleeve. It's frustrating. I was talked out of MGB because so many people were concerned with how young I was and the quality of life going forward. Anyway, I'm just going to try my best. Back to the gym twice a day and focusing on liquids and Proteins. Hopefully that will result in a loss this week.

I am in desperate need of anything resembling real food. I get about 150 g of Protein a day and probably around 100 oz of food. I know some of my hunger is in my head but I would murder newborn puppies for some tuna or scrambled eggs. I can't really find any liquid appropriate foods I enjoy. One week till puree and broth is making me homicidal

Is that what you lost in a week? I think I've only lost about 6 lbs but I haven't pooped so in definitely retaining Water. I think I'm getting in a lot of calories for this stage (~1000) but it's what my body wants.
