I heard that a lot of people had to do 2 weeks liquid diet before surgery. My doc & nutritionist only told me 1-3 days before. I only did 1 day because I had a wedding the weekend before my surgery.

Hi how are you doing 3 months out?




I am feeling great! I've lost about 42lbs and 30 inches. I haven't had any complications with introducing foods, just a little acid reflux week 3 and 4 but it subsided. I have so much more energy. I try to get myself to the gym 3-4 days a week. I get about 60g of Protein and about 48oz of Water. I'm not hitting my goals with that. It is something I have struggled with right along. I take each day at a time! How are you feeling since surgery?

I’m doing well. Had an issue with my incisions not healing but now they are good. I’m down 22lbs just shy of a month out. I definitely need to start exercising so I just joined Planet Fitness so that I can get my cardio in. I love walking but it’s just too cold to go walking outdoors just yet. My next appointment with my Dr is March 12 and I want to at least lose 10lbs.

      I joined a bariatric support group at Torrance Memorial Hospital yesterday and it was so inspiring and incredible to meet other people who are on this same journey! They knew nothing about this forum, by the way. Most of them had a significant other, a sibling or a friend tag along for support — how kind! There was one young lady (Ilana) who came with a friend (Katie) who was taking notes for her and asking all these questions — “playing the devil’s advocate”, as she put it. I shared my story. I was emotional and lengthy, but everyone was supportive… I met 6 people — some who’ve had surgery already (one lady was only 9 days post-op) and some who are still in their waiting phase (I’m the only revision and lowest BMI, but oh well)… There was one lady (Lisa) who lost 40 lbs. in her pre-op diet, had the sleeve done in October 2018 and thereafter lost another 80 lbs. — simply incredible! She said she’d actually like to be 10 lbs. heavier… (You're never going to hear me say that, LOL!) I got everyone’s phone number and created a GroupMe group for us. I’m excited for that to be our safe space; sharing/support portal kind of thing, especially since everyone is local and we can meet up!

      Worst. Dumping. Ever. Last. Night.
      So I thought I would throw caution to the wind and sample some of the fruit salad that my mom brought over for the fam. I dutifully portioned out 1/8 cup of the stuff.  I figured the sugar in the fruit may be in issue, but come on, 1/8 cup?  Barely a couple bites, should be fine.
      Before I could finish it, my heart started to feel like it was beating out of my chest.
      *** TMI Alert: continue reading at your own risk ***
      Ended up in the washroom barfing. And while I was barfing, I had to .  I was literally alternating ends to face the toilet until it felt like there was nothing left in my insides.  I swear more came out of me that I even put in it over the last 3 days.
      I laid down with my forehead on the cold bathroom floor tile for like 20 minutes afterwards to recuperate.  Then Mr. (my hero ) carried me to the shower and helped me crawl into bed.
      So yeah, I'm feeling pretty shitty this AM.

        Dang that sucks! I'm so sorry that happened!

        I was talking with a couple of friends this morning, trying to explain how unpredictable our physiological responses are to various foods are post op, but I don't think I was able to get them to really understand.

        I hope you're feeling better soon. Hang in there!
