Me! Im having gastric bypass on the 20th! Once I got the approval phone call about a week ago I was sooo excited. But I have to be honest, I'm getting kind of nervous and of course im over thinking all of it and thinking "what if im one of those people who doesn't lose any weight!" Maybe its all the Protein Drinks talking but I just feel blahhh. well and the fact that ive lost like only 3 pounds on this pre op diet

I’m 60. My surgery was December 18th. Down 18 lbs. My surgeon has RNY pt’s on Clear Liquids while in hospital the advances to full liquids when home. Week 2 puréed so that’s where I am. Tolerating well. Week 3 and 4 will be soft then advance to regular just a few foods at a time. God bless and best wishes everyone! We can do this!

Doing great! Finished first week of soft diet. Taking Bariatric Advantage chewable Advanced Multi EA Vitamins. Yuck! Any ideas for better tasting Multivitamins. I can resume swallow vitamins in a few weeks.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
