I am nervous today! I hope it goes well and I'm not too sick!

Good luck skinnygirl1984! Just remember, even if you feel kinda miserable the first couple days post-op, you won’t always feel that way - it gets better quickly!

Surgery was Thursday June 7th and I am feeling really well. After my episode of severe nausea I have not had anymore. I am drinking at least 35oz of liquid and have eaten cream of wheat. I am feeling very positive about this journey and am so glad I did it. Good luck to everyone having surgery this week.

I had surgery 24 hours ago. I feel good now and pray it continues. Not going to lie, the gas was painful. If you haven’t had surgery yet, take the pain meds they offer the first day. Stay ahead of the pain. I didn’t and I struggled because of it. Hoping to go home today.

Heyyyyyy surgery twin! I’m so glad you’re doing great! That nausea was a beast those first few days. Yuck! I’m trying to get my liquids in too. I haven’t tried anything like the cream of wheat just cause I’m a chicken. But I couldn’t be happier with my decision. All the built up anxiety is finally gone. Again, I’m glad you’re doing great.

Hello fellow June sleevers ! I am a week post op now and feeling great ! I am not recovering anymore since I won't be able to sleep in the afternoon (which was necessary up to that point) and I have no pain whatsoever. I can take care of my 2 year old and walk her to daycare so that's fun.

I feel like I am doing full liquids a little bit too well : I was able to drink about 10 oz of Soup and apple sauce for lunch without issue (I was obv full after). Anyone else can take as much ?

My surgery is on the 19th. First surgery I’ve had since my son was born and I’m a little scared.

Don't even stress. The first night was the worst with gas pains and incision pains. Once you walk and pass gas, you will feel great. I don't need pain pills after the gas passed.

I am drinking Water, tea and broth my first night after surgery. I don't regret this at all.

Congrats on getting this far in your journey!! My surgery was 6/5/18. I'm officially one week out. Everything went smoothly no pain meds needed after and no nausea at all. I did throw up once about 2 hours after I woke up due to residual blood in my "new" stomach but after that it's been smooth sailing! You'll do great!!!

I started full liquids yesterday and I haven't had any trouble drinking an 11 oz Protein Shake or eating 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, so I think we're both doing fine.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.
