Agreed with Margo! Each day gets easier. When it feels overwhelming, just remember that it's DOWNHILL from here on out. A few months from now you're going to look back and see the road you traveled and the progress you made, and feel a huge sense of achievement. You are one day closer to healthy ❤️

Like the ladies said. Keep walking. The gas pains go away completely by 2 weeks. I think mine was a little over a week. I do not recall now. Focus on what you and walking, and drinking your liquids and you will get to being healed faster.

This OP could have been written by me. I had gastric bypass surgery on December 19, and I'm still in pain. Or severe discomfort. I cant tell if its gas, pain from the manipulation (some larger bruising on my right side) or if this is my new hunger pain. Or a bit of everything all mixed together. Right now it feels like I have a tight giant rubber band around my midsection. I'm trying to walk around the house, but I still feel tired pretty quickly.

I keep a water bottle by me at all times, and can only comfortably take in 1/4 cup of food at a time. I know I'm not getting nearly enough Protein. It's my current struggle. Well, that and making sure I dont dehydrate.

I am however, completely and thoroughly sick of cream Soups made with milk and strained. Tomorrow I'm getting some pre made Protein Shakes just to shake things up. Pun intended.

I was having severe buyers remorse yesterday, but I've been talking with some friends who went through it and am trying to keep in mind that 2 weeks will suck, but then it will get better.

Ugh!

Wow , surgery on dec 19 and ur eating food ? I had it Dec 20 and am still on Clear Liquids . Finally got some diet Jello down yesterday . Today going to try my slim fast and pure Protein Shakes but I have trouble doing more than 2 oz every 15 min. I too am still very sore in the midsection , but walked 10k steps yesterday and gas/bloating much better . Burning a hole in my parents carpets wandering around the house ! LOL

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
