June Sleevers Lets Get Excited!!!



Recommended Posts

I reviewed my diet book today and I can have cottage cheese and eggs and nf refried bras on Friday! Not sure how I thought I had another week. I used to be ok with the sugar free stuff and now it tastes HORRIBLE to me. I hate crystal light now. I have been drinking Hint waters the last two days. Much better than the artificial sweetener after taste! I ordered some Isopure Unflavored Protein from Amazon to add to Water and food - it will be here tonight. I’m getting burned out on my protein shakes.

Day 6 post op. Feeling a little more normal each day. No pain meds at all today. I did get pretty dizzy ... I waited to long time have my Soup for lunch. I guess with so few calories right now, I need to stay on track with food/protein shake timing. I’m on the count down to very soft/mushy food this Friday. I had a ton of pain with one of my incisions. It was pretty rough even with Percocet and the Abdominal binder. But that pain is pretty much very dull now - so no pain meds and I ditched the abdominal binder- it was not comfortable at all. I hope all of the other June sleepers that have made it to the “other side” are doing well! I also hope hat everyone coming up has a safe surgery and speedy recovery.
Also - I cannot tell when I am full or hungry. It’s so weird. I have to set a timer to eat and keep up with Water. Anyone else experience this? I just follow the amounts of food outlined in my diet book for the phase that I am in ... but do not really get any feelings or signs when I am hungry or full.

I am day 5 as well, after I was able to get free from gas pain I stopped all medications. Pain is not too bad, it is worst when getting in and out of bed. Because of the gas pain I started to walk more frequently and as long as I needed. I am not feeling tired or lack of energy. I liked Premier Protein before when I used to drink the whole thing at once, sipping on it is horrible. My problem is that everything that is sugar free has a horrible after taste. I am also looking forward cottage cheese and eggs. I was just reviewing my phase 2 diet and I just found out that cottage cheese is allowed. Guess who is going to Publix tomorrow do some shopping.
I replied to your post - but not sure it linked back to this or not! See below! Happy post-op recovery!!

OMG I'm so nervous! I get sleeved today!!! My alarm goes off in 2 minutes, but I've been wide awake for 30.. lol! I had a dream I slept through my alarm and woke up at the time I was supposed to check in... And did the whole mad dash to get there, but was too late.

Thank goodness that was just a dream!!!

I have a lot of mixed emotions this morning though. Am I doing the right thing? Or am I brave? Am I going to be successful? Will I fail at this like I've failed so many other times? So many feelings!

Either way, it's time to get up! Please keep me in your thoughts today... This is my first ever surgery and I'm pretty scared!

I just weighed in for the first time since the surgery and I lost 6 pounds in one week. That is 14 lbs since the liquid diet, or 6% of my weight. Pre op and post-op liquid diets are not easy but let's keep our eyes on the price :)

To the sleevers getting surgery today, I have you in my thoughts. [emoji173]

Thank you all for the encouragement! Honesyly, I'm in a ton of pain... That gas pain is no joke! And swallowing the tiny droplet of Water from an ice chil is so very painful.

My left abdomen is hugely swollen and tender, which makes it hard to find a comfortable position. My roommate is a chatty Cathy with lights on all night...

Those are the downsides at the moment. But I KNOW good things are around the corner! So I keep going on walks and pushing through the pain. It will be worth it! I can't wait to get home to my own bed lol

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
