Hello from overseas



Recommended Posts

Hello, i am Annette Flora , 50, from the Netherlands..

i had surgery 4/17/2018.
I am glad to find a MGBforum

With the 10day preopdiet i lost 15,43 pounds and the month post-op only 11,68
I am now 268,96 pounds and at a stall.

HELP😕 i know it is common . I give others advice to be patient, but for my self i am insecure.

Can you tell me how much Protein or calories do you eat one month post op? Maybe even see your menu’s?
And were you allowed to excercise a little again?


Thanx🕺

Welcome, I had gastric bypass surgery whereas you had Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) surgery so any advise may be a little different.

Since you are 1 month post-op, exercise is important. You should be exercising every day about 30 minutes. Walking is very good exercise.

You should be consuming around 75 to 90 grams of Protein each day. Meals should always focus on protein first. If you are unable to meet this daily protein requirement, you need to incorporate Protein Shakes into your diet.

Also there is a daily Fluid requirement of 64-80 ounces of fluids per day. The fluid requirement is met by a combination. It is not only the Water that you drink each day. But also the water you drink when you take your Vitamins and medicine. It is the milk you drink. It is the fluids content of the protein shakes. It is the water component of the Soups you take. It is met by flavored water such as Crystal Light. It is met by sugar free popsicles. It is met by tea and Decaf coffee. It is a combination of all the fluids that you consume during the day

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
