6 days out post opp having had a mini bypass in Cancun with Dr. Perez. I am feeling really great, and following my clear liquid diet, they also recommended me take a bariatric Protein Shake they sold at the hospital which I bought, and have been able to use starting day 3 well I can not stand this Protein Powder, but I really struggled with my Protein Shakes with the pre opp phase also after trying 3 different ones and flavours, any suggestions from members...not sure if I can drink the Protein Drinks 😕 I would rather go through having the surgery again before I have to swallow another ounce😕 I am managing very well with Clear Liquids and Water getting in 70 ounces per day last 3 days.

Hi and Welcome

I don't have any recommendations for Protein Shakes but hopefully someone may, but have you tried things like collagen powder, some are quite high in Protein and can be mixed with various liquids or Soups.

I am still in the free Fluid stage for another 10 days or so, in place of a shake sometime I have been having some yo pro yoghurt thinned down with some Water or skim milk.

Thank you so much for the advise, as I am still in Mexico for a few more weeks I am having a hard time finding things assumed the bariatric Protein Powder they sold to me would get me through, but today I will look for a clear Protein that I can add to yogurt etc.

Hi berry girl, yes I really like him, so easy to talk to and I think a wonderful surgeon, he explained everything to me.

I went straight to the mini gastric bypass as to his suggestion due to my health issues, diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol , as my BMI WAS 30 he did not recommend the sleeve for me, so I took his advise.

my son and daughter in law had the sleeve done with Dr. Perez also and are both doing awesome...

i am am doing great tomorrow will be 2 weeks since surgery, I see him for a follow up, and look forward to getting the OK to get into the ocean and pool.

good luch in your continued journey

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
