@KimTriesRNY. Have you ever gotten lost? I think the topic triggered something in me. I don't usually veer off course like this. I knew kingcake was referring to acute pain, but it was too late. Triggers happen. Sorry if I hijacked your thread, kingcake, with my nonsensical ramblings. I was no help to you at all. I'd delete my post if I could.

Perhaps I should take a break from this forum and regroup. I've really been feeling down lately.

Somehow the question took a left turn. I realize that people have different tolerance levels for surgery. I’m an rn x 30 years. I just wanted to get somewhat of an idea. After I had gotten the sleeve I felt like I was hit by a truck and that feeling lasted for 24 hours. After that it got better rapidly. I was trying to get a feeling if the bypass recovery is similar.

@ Kingcake, if you can wait less than a month, on September 5th i, the about oldest Bariatric Pal active on BP, will tell you in my verbose way my RnY😷 surgery experiences. I do have a way with words (fuf,i do say so) even though my dexerity at texting is maybe C×, my,problem is my fingers go at a sedate 45 mph, my brain is out at the Bonneville salt Flats setting a land speed record. But cross,my heart and,the,promise to have to drink,Protein shakes into infinity, I WILL Tell All. Okay my friend?

Of course I have, I think we all have. I think it’s a normal part of this process. We are all going through a lot of changes and have a lot of emotions to deal with. Add into the mix all the hormones going crazy with the weight loss and it can be hard to predict what mood you will be in from moment to moment sometimes.

My post wasn’t meant to be harsh, although I am a person that tends to be rather blunt.

If you need to rant and rave, join us over in rants and raves.

We all need somewhere to vent when we get down.

I truly hope you are feeling better soon.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
