I had RNY April 3rd! I stayed in the hospital until yesterday, so 3 days. I had excessive scar tissue from the lap band. It was taken out 4 years ago after having it 8 years.
I had probably the worst pain of my life after RNY and it was from the drain I had and the scar tissue they said. :( I am a million times better today than I was day 3. The sensation drinking is nothing like the lap band or my normal self- it is so smooth. I’m pacing myself but I feel I drink more than the 1 oz in 15 mins that was suggested to me. I’m on full liquids and can tolerate Premier Protein well. I have 2 a Day right now and just try to get my Water in :) when I have Soup I add unflavored protein!
I’ve had some bad gas pain but ain’t nothing like that drain pain lol

Week 4

Doing good. Getting Protein, Water, Vitamins daily. It’s a beautiful day...very windy though😊

Just enjoyed 3oz. cooked shrimp with homemade cocktail sauce (prepared horseradish and Heinz low sugar ketchup). 110 calories, 22protein, 2 fat, less than 1 sugar and carbs.

Friday I can start adding more food items (including thin toast, which I am excited about😁). Still no salad, fresh veggies, nuts, rice, or Pasta till after 8 weeks.

Well did everything you thought would start on Friday get started? Do,you like the diet change? Odd how,each surgeon moves you along,the trek toward regular food? Some are faster, some are slower but everybody seems to get there eventually. Makes for interesting reading.Francess#

Going good👍🏼 I had a half a piece of rye toast with 3/4 of a hard boiled egg. Went down fine but felt very full the rest of the day. I also had a slice of cheese later that day.

Today I was at an event and enjoyed some Greek spiced chicken and hummus. It’s nice to go somewhere and eat what others are having.

9 days post op and down 9lbs! I'm currently still having some gas pain, which stinks. Can't wait for it to be over. I hate being in pain. I've been walking as much as possible, if not every hour then every 2 for at least 10-15 mins. I can't wait to be as far along as some of you are! i'm so sick of Protein Shakes and this liquid diet. I can't wait until I can have some fruit. That's probably what I crave the most right now.... some nice juicy watermelon.

Great results! It’s goid you're walking.

I'm almost 2 months and looking back it goes fast but I know at the time it’s hard. Sometimes I am actually nostalgic about the simplicity of all liquids.

Maybe you can find some sugar free watermelon flavored drink? Cause my new post bariatric brain’s first thought was, oh, you can’t have watermelon...too much sugar🙄. I still don’t really eat fruit and not many veggies. It’s all about the Protein. Premier has some fruity Protein Drinks that are sweet and may give you some satisfaction for cravings😊

Wed 5/10 will be 4wks post op, slow moving only 13lbs dwn since 4/11, 11lbs from pre-op so 24kbs in 6wks.

Getting in all my Water is a struggle, I avg 50-60oz, Protein avgs 60gr. Still cannot do soft scramble or hard boiled eggs. Beans are my fav for now still. 1/2 small baked sweet potato, no skin or chopped roasted skinless chicken works wells for me. Tried baked organic salmon & it was delish. Ricotta bake was so-so. I returned to work 8 days post op. I’m still exhausted everyday, low energy big time. Again, I’m a revision from 2011 sleeve to mgb. Any other revisions twins out there & how is your progress?

I just slipped in as an April RYNer since mine was 30.04.18. 12 days post op. I've lost 7kg(15 lb?) since surgery and 15kg(33lb) since I did my 2 weeks of pre-op dieting. It hasn't been too bad yet. I know I'm not getting as much Protein as I should be, but it's a bit of a struggle atm. I am getting about 1.5L of Water a day so at least I'm doing something right. I miss chewing food lol. And my surgeon wants me on fluids for another 12 days. At least he's now letting me have yoghurt as well which I'm finding easier than the shakes.

       Lunch time was my yummy dinner from last night. I made homemade turkey chili. I know, it's the middle of summer but I wanted something hardy and that was perfect with some sliced avocado & a tad of shredded Mexican cheese. YUM! I found the recipe that was titled "the best turkey chili recipe you will ever eat" and in fact, it was!
      My shake this afternoon is the Syntrax Nectar Kiwi Strawberry with a banana. I brought in my magic bullet blender to work since it's light and portable. I used water this time instead of the almond milk. Sipping it now at my desk, it's pretty good. I'd give this one a 5! The banana takes over and taste just like strawberry banana shake. Yum!
      Not quite sure what I am planning on tonight for dinner but since I had my main meal for lunch, it will consist of a dinner shake and a p.m. snack after (protein based of course- probably 2 hard boiled eggs.
       10 more days until surgery... I really hope my liver is teeny tiny from all of this!

      One week out and I am okay.  I am not in any pain and I still do not have gas.  I am feeling empty and no hunger.  I am getting my liquids down.  My doctors appointment is on Thursday.  The runs have slowed down to once a twice a day.  I am doing 30 mins of activity a day to the neuropathy in my legs  I want to try to do more there is nothing stopping me
      I do not feel anything emotion wise like happiness, second guessing, sadness, full of questions.  Some second thoughts as I am realizing the help of the surgery is changing your thought process.  I could eat but I can wash it out of my head. I wish I could do this with my legs.

      Checking in on this sunny Monday morning. For those who read my last update on Friday, I was having a funky week. I recharged the batteries. I spent a fun filled day a the pool yesterday and rode the water slide at least 10 times, yes... like a little kid! I made a work out date with a bestie for this evening. AND I officially, as of this morning, weigh two pounds less than my husband, and 9lbs away from ONEderland! It's amazing how quickly things can happen... I'm so blessed. So for now, its a good week. Love to all!
      OH and! My BMI has gone from 57 to 35.9  That's 21.1 difference. *mic drop*

      This weekend I found it difficult to write/journal anything with my dear soon to be 2 year old running around and keeping me busy. I have quite a few shakes to write about since Friday.
      Friday's continuation of lunch was the Syntrax Nectar Crystal Sky. I'd give this a 4. Reminded me of Kool-aid. Not too shabby and kept me full. 
      For dinner Friday I had my left overs of baked chicken, sauteed spinach with olive oil and garlic and steamed broccoli, potatoes and cauliflower. 
      For my pm snack, I had the Syntrax Nectar Wild Grape. I blended it with PB2. I should have just had it plain.  I think it would have tasted so much better. In my head  I figured it would have tasted like a pb and jam sandwich. Because of my experiment, I gave it a 2 and 1/2. LOL.
      Saturday morning I tried the Syntrax Nectar Cappuccino latte with pb2. Not bad. Some of these Syntrax latte's have that sweet after taste even though they say they are aspartame free. I have no idea what it is but I'm not a fan. The PB2 or banana kind of takes that away.
      Hubs took me to see a movie and my n-laws watched our son. I didn't think ahead so I grabbed a smoothie at the Jamba Juice to stay hydrated. I could have totally snuck in my own shake or drank water but I was tending to my son's needs ahead of mine. I need to learn to make more time for myself. I do have anxiety and this kicks in right before we leave to go out whether it's the family or just me and my hubs. My mother-n-law and father- n law are great with my son but sometimes they don't listen to instructions I give them and thus causes the anxiety to come out. Ugh. Anyway, back to it....
      So this Jamba Juice I had ordered was the PB Banana Protein and MAN did it have ALOT OF SUGAR IN IT. I should have made my own but I'm only human right....Yes, It was tasty but a medium size with 34g of protein, okay......58g carbs, 23g fat and ....eekk....49g of sugar .
      Not, the best choice. Again, I'm only human but I need to really research my nutrition info. before just looking up and seeing "oh protein, that's what I need, I'll take that, please" on the big board of what looks good.
      For dinner, I had a hoagie bowl from my local Wawa which was grilled chicken (all 3 stripes of it ) REALLY?!  packed with veggies and some honey mustard dressing. 
      Breakfast Sunday morning was Syntrax Nectar Strawberry Mousse. I swapped out water with almond milk and added 1/2 a banana. That was a 5 for sure! Very tasty!
      Lunch I tried the Syntrax Nectar Caribbean Cooler with almond milk and 1 banana. Tasted just like a daiquiri. So good. One of my favorites so far! 5!!!!
      Dinner I made turkey chili. Very good! High protein and so good!
      Breakfast this morning, I tried the Syntrax Nectar Vanilla Latte with 1 banana and almond milk. Bit of an after taste again. I need to find out what the hell that is. Again, all of these protein shakes are aspartame free yet, I have this horrible sugary, "sweet-n-lowy" kind of after taste. I give this one a 3.
