October 2018 Sleevers



Recommended Posts

I had my VGS surgery on 10/26. For the last 4 days I have not lost any weight and I am just drinking Protein Shakes, creamed Soup and Water. I am at a stall, is this happening To anyone else. Feeling very frustrated [emoji20]
Keep with it! I had the same experience. I lost 13lbs in the first 10 days. Then I stalled for a week. Today the scale finally moved again. Your body is just freaking out and thinks you're starving. Stick to plan, the scale will move. Drove me nuts. We have yo get used to plateaus as we lose. I just never expected it so soon.

Same time frame, same results for me too. I had a lap-band for ten years and i know that sometimes they say it can be a little slower if you've had the band. I'm assuming it's because we are somewhat used to the restriction already. I don't mind slow and steady as long as it doesn't come to a permanent halt!

So great to hear it's similar for someone else. xx

Should be slimy, Brown and hard to wipe, but you will do a little something. I am the 9 week wunderkind of the Liquid WORLD, I am SO SO TIRED of this stage of affairs, maybe Precious Pouch will be quasi-anorexice, nauseous the rest of her strictured stomafied life? My great fear? They will decide this needs open surgery intervention. Have they said so? No but I do have the right to be a little paranoid by now, my surgery days twins. are WAY AHEAD OF LITTLE ME!

I thought the same. I took colace every day and eventually senekot (both surgeon approved). Took me 12 days after surgery to finally go. Didn't help on the scale like I really had expected it to!

Just wanted to say "hi" to everyone- I just discovered this site!

I was sleeved on 10/17 and things seem to be going well, except I haven't lost anything in 10 days! I lost 15 pounds right off the bat (down 25 including pre-op diet) and now... nothing for 10 days. It's freaking me out even though I KNOW I'm still healing.

Very glad to find this place of support and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hi KT1981! Welcome to the site. It’s a great site for support and if you have questions. I had my sleeve done on 10/16. I’m trying to only weigh myself once a week. Lots of people have said it’s very common to not lose anything in week three because you’re body is trying to figure out what on earth is happening!

Best of luck to you!

Anyone else get nauseous from Protein Drinks? I’m having a hard time getting my Protein with the Premier Protein shakes that I LOVED pre op. Too sweet and creamy. 😢

Yes, I do. I can’t even get down shakes that I make myself. I was noticing that I was able to get my fluids or Protein in any given day but not both. I have since started drinking protein waters and they are the perfect solution!

Two-week postop tomorrow, even though I had surgery on 10/30 🤷‍♀️ I can’t wait for the ok to eat soft foods since my bday is on Saturday the 10th...fingers crossed 🤞
My surgery went pretty well, I mean since I’ve been home I didn’t need to use the pain killers and nausea meds they prescribed but unfortunately I got asthmatic bronchitis right after surgery and am also on steroids and antibiotics which delays the healing process but besides that I am doing great!
What were the first soft foods you guys tried that wasn’t too heavy?

My first soft food was an egg but I hear that it doesn’t go down well for most. I’ve had some ground beef with my ricotta bake the last few days. I’m going to try some tuna salad today!

That’s almost exactly when mine happened. Completely normal. Mine picked back up with 1lb + a day weight loss. Just keep on focusing on water/protein goals.

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      3. CrankyMagpie

        Losing a pet is terrible, and it's OK to be sad. ❤️

        Taking care of yourself is also OK--better than OK!--and if you're offering to cook, that means your sister doesn't have to cook or stress, which is kind of what she was after, anyway? So you don't need to feel bad about this.

        I can definitely imagine going to a buffet again, even though I don't eat much, but we're talking, like $10 Indian lunch buffet, not $65 (holy crap) Thanksgiving buffet! And I'll probably always favor non-buffets, since not eating part of my meal immediately just means I get to enjoy it later on (or my spouse does). It feels like less pressure, or something.

        Anyway, I'm babbling. I think you're doing the right thing, here. I hope your sister is cool about it.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
