Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. So as some of you may already know, I was scheduled for surgery May 14th but that was a dubbb my team had to cancel my RNY and now I’m scheduled for Monday the 21st so I lost all my tweensies. I’d really like some new ones to compare my progress with. And yes I’m totally stalking everyone for May 21st but In a good way

Definitely! I’ll for sure be in my room trying to text y’all all the details no matter how woozy I feel from my anesthesia [emoji23][emoji23] Everyone else who went into surgery the past two weeks just left me hanging [emoji30]

How’s your liquid diet going?

My doctor didn’t require a liquid diet. He put me on a high Protein, low carb diet that I started Saturday. However, I’ve been nervous about just liquids after surgery so I’m doing 2 meals liquid and a small dinner. I’ve lost 6 pounds so far. Will probably try to do all liquid the last few days. I’m scared it will be really hard after surgery if I don’t. How’s yours going?

You are so lucky! I’m doing horrible I keep eating Protein. I had plain eggs for Breakfast and I want a slice of salmon for dinner. I know it has no carbs and low in cal & fat but I feel bad because that’s not what my doctor instructed. The extra week was what killed me after I had been doing well for 6 days on my liquid diet then suddenly the call that it was pushed. I sure as hell wasn’t doing a 3 week liquid so I broke it and came back on it but the hunger and cravings are back like day one. I’m thinking of doing a laxative and a diuretic the day before see if I can cleanse myself and get rid of excess Water but I’m afraid of being dehydrated [emoji30]

You’re doing better than me.. I totally gave myself permission to eat Protein. I’ve lost 10lbs so far so I deff have some progress to show for but if my surgeon knew how I been tweaking my diet he’ll prob cut my head off [emoji87]

      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.

      3. CrankyMagpie

        Losing a pet is terrible, and it's OK to be sad. ❤️

        Taking care of yourself is also OK--better than OK!--and if you're offering to cook, that means your sister doesn't have to cook or stress, which is kind of what she was after, anyway? So you don't need to feel bad about this.

        I can definitely imagine going to a buffet again, even though I don't eat much, but we're talking, like $10 Indian lunch buffet, not $65 (holy crap) Thanksgiving buffet! And I'll probably always favor non-buffets, since not eating part of my meal immediately just means I get to enjoy it later on (or my spouse does). It feels like less pressure, or something.

        Anyway, I'm babbling. I think you're doing the right thing, here. I hope your sister is cool about it.

        I am slowly, s-l-o-w-l-y, learning in my old age that you don't always have to do everything for everyone else and that it is ok to take care of your own needs first. $260 is a lot to spend for a family of 4 to eat without any leftovers, especially when one person can barely eat anything. Maybe next year you can do the buffet, or maybe your sister and her family can go out to a buffet, and you and your kids can have dinner, and then everyone meets up later for board games and football or something. Focus on some fun post-meal activities. I'm skipping Thanksgiving this year because I am on liquids, which means my mom won't attend either (her choice, she doesn't want to go without me). She is ok with that, but I feel guilty about ruining her holiday. I made my peace with it because I realized that skipping this one Thanksgiving to have surgery earlier this month means that I will hopefully be healthier, live longer and have more Thanksgivings in my future.

      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.
