Unfortunately no I’m not. And just added egg salad once a day but most most of my diet is still Protein drinks. I’m still taking on way under my 500 a day

Hi all! I'm 3 days post op. In a way I thought I knew what to expect, and I guess, all things considered, I am right on track with recovery. First 2 days the gas pain was awful. Today eating 3 oz of Soup was catastrophic but the one thing that is bothering the most is the fact that I am allergic to adhesive tape and stwe I

strips were used over each incision. We discussed it prior but they said there weren't any other options. Anyhoo, it is burning my skin. I won't share the horror of a photo lol. If not for that i wouldn't even need pain pills.

My Dr used glue sorry to hear your allergic to tape

Really, because I have surgical glue over my incision sites--no tape at all.

I have had glue(allergic to it) sutures, staples, and tape over incisions in my life. Sutures can itch and tickle, staples can hurt and you may have pinpoint bleeding where they are removed. My surgeon knew I had adhesive sensativity so he used criss-crossed hypoallergenic tape over absorbable skin sutures. No problem, they did come off 2 days sooner than traditional tape but NBD, no big deal and today at 14-15 weeks they have faded into the surrounding landscape of stretch marks, 3 nearly 9 pound babies who rested 3 different directions, my belly looks like the road map to Indianapolis with all the state and county roads marked, knew I would not escape those "Mama Battle Ribbons" , part of my heredity, myself and all 3 of my offspring got our first ones at 11 on the outer flanks, and FYI not a one of us was above average weight at that time. Rather have left them a sum of Money like Fred Trump left Donald J, but we seldom get out desires, do we?💦😪

I guess they did internal sutures, then the glue over it. I think the steri-strips were just additional. Anyway I saw the doctor this afternoon and he took the steri-strips off.

I am 5 days post op too! I had that yesterday - I took chewable gas x in the am and pm plus a lansaprozole. Much better

The burning is acid reflux , they should have told u at discharge to take gas x for gas pain and Prevacid for heartburn . Take both ! Don’t fear taking am and pm at first to get it under control

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
