I had an RNY on the 30th. :) I am healing nicely, but keep getting these sharp cramps in my new little pouch. Today I graduated to blended mush! My first 2 Tbl of mush - tuna & cottage cheese - went down without a problem. :)

Sorry you are in pain. Is it from the gas or is your surgical area painful? I experienced no pain but have had other surgeries like gall bladder etc

Oh, it is my little pouch cramping up! It spasms and cramps. No specific trigger or reason, other than it is healing. My surgeon actually witnessed one of the attacks. My Oxycodone scrpt has been renewed for when it gets bad. Otherwise I take liquid acetaminophen daily. He wants to give me a muscle relaxer, but I don't want to be drugged up all day.

Other than that, I am doing great. My food does not bother me. No nausea. No spitting up. Nothing. Water is going down easy. I figure the cramps will subside with time. :D

Hi buddies,

I' Jan 25, 18 -slow loser but still loosing

HW-262

SW-242

Current weight 218 last I checked. I check weekly, don' want to obsess over it. My next weigh in is a few days. I can eat pretty much everything, no issues, no nausea, I do well with all my Protein :-) and Water. Wish the weight was coming off a bit quicker. I had the flu and bronchitis but that caused a couple stalls.

I'm so happy every one is doing well. Share your tips if you have any. I'll be back to working out as soon as my bronchitis is healed.

Proud of you all!! Feel free to message me - it's always good knowing we have support!

Hello! As of today I have lost 23 lbs. DOS 240.6, today 217.4. I am having no more pain or other problems. I am able to eat well and have no problem getting in my fluids. My taste for coffee has come back! Yay! :D (It depressed me when I lost my taste for it right after the surgery!) I am having a bit of trouble eating chicken breast by itself. It seems to get stuck and hurts! But since I love it so much, I have learned to eat it along with soft vegetables, and I no longer have problems swallowing it. For instance, I stir fry it with onions, peppers and fajita spices - or with broccoli and soy sauce! I make sure the veggies are nice and soft. I am not at the raw veggie stage yet and I am REALLY looking forward to eating my salads again!!!!! But for now, I am eating mostly shrimp, fish, chicken breast with soft veggies, eggs and yogurt. I snack on a sugar free Popsicle when I need something in between. And sometimes I get REALLY hungry before bed. Not head hunger. Real hunger. It is tempting to eat a meal, but I grab about 1/2 a slice of deli meat and it takes the edge off and allows me to sleep. :)

Hello! Great news on your progress (gives me the push to go ahead with the operation next week). A friend of mine who had WLS told me that she soaked chicken breast in Soda Water and that made all the difference. The chicken was tender and she had no issues with it (whereas she couldn't before). It's worth a try. Good luck!
