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


You got it. My first 2-3 days were horrid but by day 4 it was much better. Just keep pushing

My surgery is over. Even had hiatal hernia repaired while in surgery. No pain, no vomiting or dry heaves! First week was hardest with clear liquids only. Second week so much better with yogurt & Protein drinks for strength. Dr. Ponce was awesome even though he doesn’t speak English! I’m looking forward to eating solids in the future!

My Surgery was Wednesday 6/13. They put a nausea patch behind my ear before surgery and gave me reglan. I had one complication from the anesthesia-- couldn't pee! So I had to have a catheter overnight. They pulled it and the drains yesterday 6/14 and I am home. Otherwise all has been good. I haven't been sick or in too much pain. Just sore. Drinking Life Water has been a breeze.

I crushed my meds and I had a cramp and pain when I took them. Two ounces of pear juice and I definitely knew it and had a slight cramp. Not taking the pain meds during the day now. Plan to return to work Monday for my desk job.

I’m day 10 post op. Doing well on the full liquid diet. My plan had me starting “mushy” food today. I did one scrambled egg with 7g of low-fat cheese and it hurt my stomach! I was so excited to start mushy today but the eggs have me feeling yucky! Any other post-ops have any advice or insight?

I had surgery on Monday. Anyone else have bad acid in the mornings? I have to take my depression and anxiety meds in the morning and each morning I feel almost nauseated. Also, my calf muscles ache. Any tips or tricks?

I was given Protonix in the hospital for acid and now take Prilosec every morning to prevent acid. I was told I would take the Prilosec for three months and then eval going off of if then. Were you not given anything?

Alabama, Texas And California, got to ❤BP I'm learni,g from ladies I wouldn't getbto,meet,otherwise. Don't know,if I would be as brave as Fallinfast but I could be just as perky afterward. If we got to vote I'd v want to be her running mate. But I treasure the stories of all of you. Yes I know we are all individuals but if something happens in mine, I can look back and say Annieb93 had that or Fallinfast,made it through that,😛 it helps.👉😛👈

Sending good vibes to you. Here’s to the rest of our lives…

June 19th, here I come! :228_baby_chick:

Can’t wait for this preop liquid phase to be over, although I know the road ahead is long. I am very excited about the possibilities that life holds for me and my family with this change I am making.

Surgery was yesterday June 14th and I’m taking fluids right now and it’s horrible and feel so uncomfortable. I feel great until I drink or take a pain pill so now I’m on just Tylenol. I’ve been walking a lot because that makes me feel great. I wasn’t able to pass gas at the hospital until today I got into the car with my awful driving husband 😂😂😂lol. So that’s they plan when I stall at passing gas. Car ride around the corner 🚗 . I’m just so great full to have him take off and spend this journey with me from the beginning to the end. He did almost more than the nurses. Overall I have no regrets on day 2 let’s see what tomorrow brings.

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
