Summer 2018 Surgery Buddies: POST-OP Discussion



Recommended Posts

As we all find our new normal, I’m wondering if you all just continue to count Protein for losing weight. Or has anyone moved to Keto guidelines? Weight watchers?
Good question. I'd like to know what others are doing. I haven't been using my food tracking app in a couple weeks, just because I was out of town for awhile plus extra busy at work so I was thrown off of that routine. I have been eating pretty much the same though so I don't feel like I strayed much from reaching protein goal. I'll continue to watch the scale and see if I feel I need to get back to tracking. My weight loss is certainly slowing down. I've lost 80 since 8-15-18 and wear a size 14 now. I still would like to lose at least another 15-25 lbs to get to a healthy BMI and into a size 10 or 12.

And if you are committed, I'm sure you'll make it the rest off the way!

I’m down 83.6 lbs since August 7th, bouncing around atm around the 168/170 area. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos recently. So that stinks. I can’t do Keto because of it. And I’m too poor to afford AIP Paleo at the moment. We have $20 to last the next 2 weeks for 5 of us. Hopefully tomorrow we get some good news, we do have some food stores but running out of that pretty quickly. Once we get back on our feet though Im going to try AIP Paleo

@Megan Sadler how is it going with the Hashimoto's? I was diagnosed with it about 10 years ago.

I had rny on May 23rd and I am still struggling with eating and drinking. Had to have iv fluids twice already because of dehydration. And the pain in my upper abdomen is unreal at times. Does anyone else have sharp pains in their upper abdomen? My surgeon isn’t concerned about it, but I am! It’s so hard to eat or drink anything without it causing pain.

Deena - Did you have surgery in 2019 or 2018. Asking as you will likely get a better response if you find a 2019 thread or post separately as most of us have moved on from this thread.

Today is my 1 year! I'm 116 lbs down from my high on my best days. I've been plateaued at 165-160 for over a month now. I'm still really motivated and the energy hasn't gone away. I do want to lose another 15-25 lbs though and the plateau is driving me batty.

Still I am SO HAPPY I DID THIS.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
