I was sleeved 10/27/17 I had my first post op appointment today. Thankfully everything is going well, I'm still on liquids till Saturday (so excited lol) and I had some gas pain which was my main issue post op and now it has traveled to my right shoulder the doctor said it will pass and is normal. I'm down 22lbs this far and walking 30mins daily. All is well! Hope everyone's journey goes well too!

I was sleeved 10/31 and I'm always hungry.

I'm on a PPI. I'm getting 70 g of Protein a day. 64+ ounces of Water. And I'm just always hungry. Also still have the same cravings I did before the surgery, and I'm able to drink like normal. It feels like I didn't even have the surgery and I'm just on a starvation diet :(

And to make it worse, my doctor's plan is 4 weeks liquids, 3 weeks mushies. So I'm still 6 weeks away from even eating food. I really don't know how I'm going to survive this. This is much much harder than the preop liquid diet.

I was sleeved October 5th, 5 weeks post op yesterday! Down 26 lbs, have had a stall this 4/5th week with 2 lb loss. Not discouraged by it, started back to work last week and have been on my feet a lot.

Getting 60-70 grams of Protein, 600-700 calories, and almost 64oz of liquid per day. Still only able to eat max 3 oz of food.

I was sleeved Oct 23rd. I am down 22lbs since my day of surgery. Had my two week check up on Wednesday, and it went well. Thankfully, I haven't had any pain or complications other than soreness. I feel so normal as if nothing ever happened, until I start eating at my "old normal" pace, and suddenly I'm thinking "oh ****" lol. All is going well, and I am glad to hear you all are doing well too. I am excited for our journey! Keep up the good work.

Sleeved 10/23. Having a very hard time with my Water and Protein. Had IV fluids last week. Got out if it this week because I basically lied, my labs were ok. I feel like crap I know I'm dehydrated. Down 20 lbs since surgery, and 15 from the pre op diet. I'm nauseous and have no energy. Hungry as tell but I just cannot eat. I feel like my stomach contracts as soon as anything hits it other than water.

I had my gastric sleeve on October 25. Weighed in at 260 just before surgery and currently weighing in at 243. Most of it I lost within the first 11 days, it has been a steady plateau since then. Super frustrating. Ever since I started eating puree, it feels like my weight hasn't moved. Seriously considering going back to just liquids. Surgery went well, I woke with alot of nausea. One incision on my right has and is still horrible for me. Nurse says the surgeon over tightened the stitches and to use ice. Every time I turn or get up or down from a chair I have this horrific burning and tearing sensation on the inside. Follow up is the 14th of Nov. Can't wait. I have many days of frustration, questions to myself "why did I do this?" The only difference I see is 4 tblspoons and I'm stuffed, scale isn't moving.

Try Syntrax Nectar in the fruit flavors. I had a hard time keeping anything down and had to get multiple rounds of IV fluids but Syntrax nectar goes down easy (not too thick or sweet). I tolerate it mixed with 16oz of Water just about as easily as I handle water!

Hi. I also got my sleeve on the 25 th. Doing well overall. I am doing my best to get in my Protein. Still having pain when standing up and sitting down and having dizzy spells. I know I'm a bit dehydrated and tend to forget to dink slow when I feel thirsty. I am having terrible heartburn. So I'm still learning to get into the habit of drinking slowly all day. I am down a total of 17 pounds. So far no regrets. Best wishes everyone!

      So, getting finances in order, I managed to sell my 2016 Toyota Avalon. It was a beautiful car, of which surprisingly, I’m doing fine without and I actually don’t miss it; and also of which resulted in having a one-vehicle household, which resulted in me HAVING to walk 2.2 miles everyday 5x a week to get my daughter to school. I’m actually quite glad, I’m feeling better/stronger again, and I dropped almost $20,000 of debt. WIN-WIN!

        Awesome sauce!!!

      2. FluffyChix

        Yay!!! That's incredible on so many levels! Yay you! (You wouldn't have been able to do it if you didn't have the surgery and re-birth!"

        Maybe you should look at practicing your nutrition stuff from home?

      3. Creekimp13

        Car debt is the bane of my existence. Wont do it. And I love Toyota...I drive (and LOVE) my 2015 Camry...so I know how hard that was. Absolutely awesome you're getting the walking in, instead. Love that so much! Also teaches good habits to the kiddo....which is brilliant.

        Speaking of kiddo and cars..I've spent the last three months combing the web for a used car for my daughter. She has a summer job lined up here and needs a car to get to various labs and sample sites....and I won't let her go into more debt. (she has minimal student loans and will graduate next year with her microbiology degree)

        I found her a 2008 Malibu from Tennessee, clean inside and out...with just barely 100K on it...and I'm feeling incredibly accomplished. $3000, we paid cash :) CarFax is clean, mechanic said it was in great shape and she should get a few years out of it yet. Very common car with cheap parts if repairs are needed in the future. Previous owner did a valve job and replaced timing chain, and all maintenance was done at dealership. Brand new tires and brakes.

        It's parked in our driveway as we speak. Runs and sounds like brand new.

        I can't wait to see her face:)

      Tonight's experiment: wonton wrapper lasagna (made with ground turkey and a Greek yogurt cream cheese/mozzarella/cheddar/spices mix instead of ricotta, which I don't like) and tacos (made with taco meat pilfered from my sister's supper). In the oven now!

        Haven't tried the taco ones yet, but the lasagna ones are DELICIOUS!

      2. Charity G

        I'll have to try these! What's the carb count like for the wontons? After surgery, what guidelines did your surgeon and/or nutritionist give you regarding calories and carbs?

      3. istytehcrawk

        The wonton wrappers are 31 carbs (1 fiber and 1 sugar) for eight wrappers; each lasagna/taco uses two wrappers. At my one-month follow-up, my surgeon said just to worry about protein/liquids, not the other macros, and she said to work toward 1,000-1,200 calories per day, but that it'd take a while to get there (I'm averaging 500-700 per day currently, with at least 60 carbs).

      4. FluffyChix

        How were they? They look great!

      5. istytehcrawk

        Haven't tried the taco ones yet, but the lasagna ones are AMAZING. Like, as good as or better than regular lasagna.

      My jeans were literally starting to fall off me, so I caved today and bought a pair of 26/28s to hold me over until capri weather hits, hopefully in the next few weeks.
      The important part, though, is that I bought them at WALMART! I haven't been able to buy pants there in YEARS because they didn't go to my size. Unfortunately, I still had to pay $17 (so much better than the $60ish at Catherine's though), because the 26s that were on clearance for $9 were still too small to be comfortable. SOON, though!

        I almost caved today at Walmart for some pants, but I just couldn’t do it. I keep thinking how many times will I actually wear them before I have to go down a size. Technically I could have gotten some for about the last two months, cause I have been staying about the same. But since my workouts were upped again, I figured to just keep my money and wear the leggings (I have been buying these in smaller sizes...they’re cheap at walmart!) I’ve been wearing for the past year! So, good for you! Enjoy your pants and yay...they’re much cheaper atwalmart and yes, they’re just as good too, IMO. 😊

      2. istytehcrawk

        I probably would've held off with buying them, but mine were so baggy they looked awful, and I'm a reporter so I have to look at least semi-presentable and the 28s just didn't fit that bill anymore -- after only about a month!

    • istytehcrawk

      Just made Eggface's mini chocolate protein muffins, minus the chocolate topping. They're pretty tasty, albeit a little bit dry; I think when I reheat them I'll spray them with a tiny bit of butter spray to help with that. Not bad, considering they help satisfy the sweet tooth for roughly 30 calories and 2 grams of protein (my mix made 14 instead of the 12 hers did).
