@rah_henry - I'm so happy things are going well for you. Hopefully this gas will pass very soon! Can you take anything for it? Like those chewable GasX pills?

I've heard that GasX doesn't really help. I've just been making sure to walk as much as possible. Doing some light housework is helping to get the gas moving and all that as well.

I had mine on the 5th. I did a revision from lap band. I feel HORRIBLE!!! But it should be worth it later.

Your so lucky you have a modern surgeon. Mine only allows liquid. No meat or veggies nothing. In fact I now have to go for a pointless nutrition appointment because I cheated in order to keep the new surgery appointment on the 20th

@Hal711 - Love your mantra and thinking about it as I watch the clock. 5 more minutes till lunch. HAHA! I have a couple options for Breakfast, lunch and dinner and Yogurt and Cottage cheese can be combined with 3 oz. of Turkey, Fat Free Ham or chicken for lunch or dinner. I just eat really slow and savor each bite.

OMG. I'm a June buddy, too. Today is my day. June 13, 2018. I'm #3 on my surgeon's OR schedule, so I probably won't have my surgery until early afternoon. First a week of liver-shrinking HELLo-kitty, now almost a full day of nada á la nada. Leaving in about an hour. Excited but anxious. Nervous but relieved. Oh, no. I've forgotten what a cheeseburger tastes like.

Had mine done yesterday morning. Back home tonight. The pain is a little discomfort but nothing I can't tolerate. I've been walking since yesterday afternoon. Drinking Water and was given different Soups in the hospital. So far so good.

Wow! Home already? That’s really fast. No time to observe or make sure your ready it seems like. I think we should get a couple nights in to verify all is good a couple days out.

      I joined a bariatric support group at Torrance Memorial Hospital yesterday and it was so inspiring and incredible to meet other people who are on this same journey! They knew nothing about this forum, by the way. Most of them had a significant other, a sibling or a friend tag along for support — how kind! There was one young lady (Ilana) who came with a friend (Katie) who was taking notes for her and asking all these questions — “playing the devil’s advocate”, as she put it. I shared my story. I was emotional and lengthy, but everyone was supportive… I met 6 people — some who’ve had surgery already (one lady was only 9 days post-op) and some who are still in their waiting phase (I’m the only revision and lowest BMI, but oh well)… There was one lady (Lisa) who lost 40 lbs. in her pre-op diet, had the sleeve done in October 2018 and thereafter lost another 80 lbs. — simply incredible! She said she’d actually like to be 10 lbs. heavier… (You're never going to hear me say that, LOL!) I got everyone’s phone number and created a GroupMe group for us. I’m excited for that to be our safe space; sharing/support portal kind of thing, especially since everyone is local and we can meet up!

      Worst. Dumping. Ever. Last. Night.
      So I thought I would throw caution to the wind and sample some of the fruit salad that my mom brought over for the fam. I dutifully portioned out 1/8 cup of the stuff.  I figured the sugar in the fruit may be in issue, but come on, 1/8 cup?  Barely a couple bites, should be fine.
      Before I could finish it, my heart started to feel like it was beating out of my chest.
      *** TMI Alert: continue reading at your own risk ***
      Ended up in the washroom barfing. And while I was barfing, I had to .  I was literally alternating ends to face the toilet until it felt like there was nothing left in my insides.  I swear more came out of me that I even put in it over the last 3 days.
      I laid down with my forehead on the cold bathroom floor tile for like 20 minutes afterwards to recuperate.  Then Mr. (my hero ) carried me to the shower and helped me crawl into bed.
      So yeah, I'm feeling pretty shitty this AM.

        Dang that sucks! I'm so sorry that happened!

        I was talking with a couple of friends this morning, trying to explain how unpredictable our physiological responses are to various foods are post op, but I don't think I was able to get them to really understand.

        I hope you're feeling better soon. Hang in there!
