Summer 2018 Surgery Buddies: POST-OP Discussion



Recommended Posts

2 hours ago, sassysleever76 said:

Hello everyone and happy holidays! I’m almost 4 months post op and doing well overall. I’m wondering who is still tracking your Protein? I’m still using my app to track carbs/fats/protein and just wondered if people get to a point where they don’t need to track?

My surgeon is completely anti tracking. He wants me to eat healthy and be happy without obsessing about the numbers. Not even calories, he refuses to give a number

Have any of you had coffee since the surgery? I don’t think I can survive much longer without it. I’m about to be doing 12 hour days 5x a week and having school on top of that. I’ve been dealing with being sick lately, my hip is injured, etc.

I went back on coffee last month. Don't know if it's allowed just yet but didn't ask if I could. Doesn't seem to mess with my appetite at all and I've had ALOT.

I’ve been scared. And my days will only get longer. I’ll be looking at 16 hour shifts. If I can make it through my bsn and med school

i just started a 3rd job so needless to say i’ve been back on coffee for a little over a month now. it’s fine for me, but i’m able to drink liquids with no issue and have been since the start so staying hydrated is relatively “easy”. the caffeine has been fine for me though, i wouldn’t be too scared. but maybe start with a weak coffee if you are nervous and then work your way to the good stuff

What kind of surgery did you have? I had the RnY and I was told that the caffeine would have a negative impact on my healing and on the work of the process I switched to decaf and I drink as music as I want, whenever I want.

I haven't yet. I just can't bring myself to have it black. I did try a cup using vanilla Premier Protein as creamer/sweetner but I took 2 sips and threw it out. Prior to July, I would have a cup with 1 tsp of sugar and some non dairy Creamer.

I put my black coffee in my shakes. I make mine with powder though. Taste is better than before

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
