I'm feeling pretty good. No nausea. I'm drinking tons of Water and taking my pills. Only thing I don't like is giving myself blood thinner injections. Haha.

One week out and feeling much better. I too, am already tired of the shakes. It’s tough to get the Water in as well! I go tomorrow to have my staples removed.
How much time do you guys have off of work?

I don’t have any staples. They used a kind a glue. I think it will fall off. I have more troubled drinking the shakes then Water. I have until nov 22nd during my post surgery appointment for now. Doctor gave me a note for 4 weeks. My work kind of freaked out. What kind of Vitamins are you using?

I went back to work today. It was a bit tiring but doable. :)

As for Vitamins, I was told not to worry about them for the first couple weeks as I'm on liquids. Same with Protein. Just try not to get dehydrated. I think I'm going to try the 3+3 vitamins. They have everything you need, including both Calcium and Iron as they use a form of calcium that doesn't bind to the iron. You take 3 pills in the morning and 3 in the evening, they apparently taste like sweet tarts. They're a bit pricey, being around $60 CAD a month... but if it means I don't have to take 5 different types of vitamins, it may be worth it.

Hi there

I was also sleeved Nov 7th

I'm doing alot better now but day 2, 4 and 7 were the worst with pain and hitting the wall in regards to energy level. I'm still not hungry but getting a comfortable nights sleep doesn't exist anymore.

I have lost about 10 lbs since surgery, 20 total since starting pre -op. I am taking a medication to prevent gallstones and just read that the primary side effect is weight gain [emoji15]. So, I am feeling like taking the medication is counter productive, but I also don’t want gallstones too! Frustrating to say the least. I don’t each much in the run of a day and am really struggling with the Water daily but am trying. I managed to get up to 4000 steps total yesterday. Each day I slowly start to feel a little better. Congrats on the weight loss everyone!
