September bypass buddies??

I just ate two stale saltines. I’m so nauseous. Preop I would eat a pickle or something salt and vinegar flavored. Of course the clear pops are a no go.

Nothing appeals to me, I went inside the grocery store earlier and had to cover my nose. Name a food for the purée and liquid stage and I guarantee I’ve tried it , liked it once and eventually no longer liked it.

I want to take another shot at tuna with miracle whip instead of Greek yogurt. Maybe add a finely smushed egg? I’m nervous because the thought of ANY seafood makes me 🤢. So maybe I should try a couple of spoonfuls of Wendy’s chili and pray.
What about chicken? I've seen some of the pouches like the tuna but with chicken. I'm not a big fan of fish either but love chicken.

I have hit my first weight stall I weighed yesterday at 346.8 and today at 348.2 all I had yesterday was a Starbucks tall (which is their small) Americana Decaf with pumpkin spice, a fuzzy navel fruit Protein Shake, some creamy chicken Soup that was Protein filled, and another protein shake along with my Water bottle I sipped from all day.

This week I had a couple days where it stayed the same or didn't move at all. The next day the scale moved. I weigh everyday which is not good but I want to know what is working and what is not working so far. Maybe it was the about of Fluid. Did you urinate a lot or maybe you might need to number 2. Sorry to be gross. BUT DONT BE DISCOURAGED. I was and I had to snap myself back.

I weigh every day as well and I know I am not supposed to as well. I just do. I am not too concerned with it but it is a notable change.

Only thing I can see and it's probably grasping at straws, condensed Soups are notoriously high in Na also known as Sodium, an Fluid-Bloater of the first Water. FYI fun fact , after being on sodium, low fat, lie-cal, high Protein diet presurgery, they had piggy back sodium on top of normal saline because I was deficient, who would have thought?

The Soup was a Baritastic high Protein soup I had lots of Water throughout the day. I think it was just an off scale day. I saw my PCP today and his scale said 350.2 and I had left my shoes on. I am not complaining about that number at all. He was pleased with how well everything was doing and wants to see me again in one month to monitor meds to see what we can lower the doses of or take me off of all together.

My doctor uses the Patch MD vitamin patches instead of pills. I love this as I don’t have to worry about when to take them. Just put a new one on each morning after my shower and wear for 8 hrs. I love this.


So do I. I use the Multivitamin but thinking about getting Biotin. They're so easy to use.

I’m doing the Tespo Bariatric liquid vitamins and my doctor called in a weekly nasal spray B12. Once I started these I started feeling much better!
Hello planochick! How've you been?

The Premier Protein send to more pose a problem for me. I lived in that stuff after my previous surgery last year but after this rny.... it tends to cramp me sooooo bad that it's ridiculous! I hate this because that was my only hope of even getting closer to Protein requirement!

Hi KBridge,

I’m well. Traveled last week for work and it was tiring! I had my first bite of real food last night and that tiny amount of chicken salad might have been the best thing ever. Super frustrated that the scale didn’t move the whole week I was gone though. Ugh! Like how is that possible. I’m hoping I was swollen from flying.

Still some pain on left side but so much better. How are you?

I'm planning on adding some variety the First of the Month when I get paid. Someone said it encourages. facial hair, no big deal , thanks to PCOS, which should be sleeping. because of my age, I have had facial hair since 27, so I need now to shave or pluck more often? At least I will have enough hair to comb instead of arranging with a damp washcloth!💦

      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

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      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.
