Couping With Tight Days Pouch Days...

I am seven weeks post sleeve to RNY gastric bypass revision, and All things considered, I am doing Quite well. No Hair loss or excessive tiredness (knock on wood), I am working out 1 to 2 hours a day, I have lost a total of 33 pounds, of which 20 have been since surgery day and I have started a new and healthy vegan lifestyle in which I have wonderful green smoothies for Breakfast and focus on live colorful nutrition to heal and repair my body.

The one thing that I do struggle with from time to time is tight days. These are days in which I wake up, and from the moment I take my first sip of Water I say oh no... because I realize nothing is going to go down well. My attempts to drink anything let alone eat cause a lot of belching discomfort and my stomach just balls up and rejects the notion of eating anything. This, of course leads to tiredness and dehydration and the worst part is that I cannot seem to tie it to the consumption of any particular food or substance the previous day so it makes it hard to control or prevent these types of days. This also needs to dehydration as I try not to stop what I do and still go about my business and still workout as normal. But If I do try to eat or drink then I will get the foamies and eventually throw up :(

Today is a tight today and although I am working out etc, it is just not a good and healthy feeling to be doing so on zero food and water. But the alternative is to ball up and suffer and I’m not one to go down without a fight. Does anyone else suffer with These kinds of days, and do you have any advice or insight as to how I can deal with it or make it better?

Hi Ellie123! I am experiencing the exact same thing. Severe cramping after sipping water or eating soft foods. I'm 2 weeks out today...YAY so not working out yet, just walking some and trying to learn my new stomach. I am struggling to get in enough Protein or water and am concerned that something bad will happen. Today is a day that I should be introducing deli meats/cheeses etc. but I'm afraid to put anything in my mouth besides sugar free popsicles.

My goodness I hope this resolves soon but looks like I still have some time to deal with it if you're at 7 weeks. YIKES

Good luck to you Ellie123.

Intolerance of Fluid after seven weeks could be a sign of a stricture.

I do have days where it seems I can eat a bit more, but this seems extreme. I would be concerned enough to ask the surgeon for an EGD.

Everybody please think of me tomorrow, 5 and half weeks since and having an EGD Friday October 12th at 2:15 pm EDT. Maybe my surgeon's partner Dr Noria will have some answers why Precious Pouch is SUCH a Crabby, individual. Currently,liquids yes. pureed and above- No No No. Had a bad time last pm with an inch piece of 🍌, looked soft and tender, before, felt miserable afterward, chest still sore today. This morning I woke up nauseous, WTF next? Even broths etc BORING!😪😪😭

Thanks Everybody, waiting on my ride to show up. She's an old friend, kind of a humorous story, she was my friend before I found out she and my late husband dated and were quite an item in high school. Kay paid me quite a compliment a while back , she said "If I wasn't going to marry Johnny I can't think of a finer person for h8m to marry and spend his l8fe with!" And I confess I melted and started 😢 crying. You seem I sometimes wondered after he died, maybe he COULD HAVE done better. It was like a blessing when she said THAT. She is a scoosh older, 75 to my 72, we both need a cane at times, but still pretty tough 🐣chicks. And if it is possible to have fun heading to a hospital, I bet we will. We have other mutal friends, we'll probably,discuss them too.
