December Bypass Twin?



Recommended Posts

Ae2018- my surgery is in 5 days. No pre-op diet for me but I am watching my food intake. Clear Liquids only the day before. I am fairly certain Protein Shakes will be too sweet for me post op and I have GENEPRO Protein Powder which I tried with chicken bullion, not a fan. I plan on making Jell-O shots this weekend with it. I tried chicken broth Soup from Unjury and LOVED it so I ordered plenty. I’m trying to stay out of the public as much as possible due to it being cold and flu season and I am not trying to get sick and have surgery postponed so I have stocked up on crystal light and flavored waters as well.

I had my RNY Monday the 3rd, how is everyone doing post op so far if you’ve been in this week? Luckily, I dodge the nausea which had me terrified and liquids are going down easy. But this hunger, I’ve never experienced more discomfort in my life. I can deal with the pain, even that was more intense than I had planned. I have my first post op visits Tuesday and will ask about incorporating some soft foods. I’m so uncomfortable I can’t even communicate with family and friends. Wetting all my Protein in and plus some. Hoping everyone is recovering well!

I had RNY on 12/3 as well. I can relate to the hunger. I just try to focus on all my liquids. If Im hungry, I'll just make some turkey Bone Broth an add vegetables. I don't eat the veggies but seeing them makes me think I am. Im usually full after that. Also staying on a routine the entire day helps. Hope this helps, if not remember this is only temporary.

I'm in Michigan. I start liquid diet one week prior to surgery so the 27th....I have my few hour long pre-op class on the 26th. Thanksgiving will be my last big meal! Excited for 2019......a life-changing year!!!
My bypass is scheduled for the 26th. [emoji4] It was interesting eating a Thanksgiving meal with abandon. That is the last time. I did enjoy it.

Hey everyone I am having my bypass this Monday the 10th. I am so excited and nervous. I don't have to do a preop diet, I am glad about this but also a little worried. What if I gain a few pounds will this increase the risk of surgery?please if any body else on here didn't have to do a preop diet how was your surgery?

No pre op diet for me either. I just watched what I ate the week before to be certain I didn’t gain. I had one great meal at my favorite restaurant with wine but ate healthy the remainder, worked for me. Good luck, I’m 5 days post op and it’s been tough for me.

      Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
      As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
      The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
      Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

        Haven't tried these. Sound good! Thanks

        They are good but...1/2 the cookie is a serving. They are BIG but I found that I wanted it ALL!! When we went to Juarez Mexico for hubbys WLS they saved him. At least that is what he thought. LOL

      3. GreenTealael

        Trader Joe's have the single serving size!!!

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy
