I am on day 4 of the pre-op diet and I too am having issues with headaches. It should get better. I am allowed a low carb meal every day for the first 2 weeks then Protein Drink only the last 2 weeks. Just need to hold tight and go with the flow I guess

I think I'm going to switch from coffee to black tea for a few days, then green tea, then herbal tea over the course of my liquid diet. That way it's both a mental and chemical switch. The hardest part for me will be avoiding my beloved Starbucks espresso drinks!!!! *cries*

Hesitate to say. They called this morning for Feb. 13th, but honestly, after being told April, I accepted a project and now it conflicts. I "think" it will be Feb. 20. But will know more later. Just so, sooooo surprised the insurance company already approved and there was no 10-infinity days anxiety-ridden approval time I had to sweat out! :D

Hello, I am not a bypass person yet but Ive had the sleeve. I'm currently having issues with it and the doctor said if my stomach doesn't heal the right way or if it has created an "L" shave versus a "C" shape I will have to get the bypass. I'm nervous. If I do have the bypass it will be the end of this month. I'm super nervous!

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
