Hello! So I was sleeved on 1/28/19 and the first few days were really rough for me getting fluids, especially ANY Protein at all. Then I came to realize that my new stomach, at least for the time being, cannot tolerate whey! (Which was obviously a wonderful, vomit-filled experience). I recently discovered fairlife lactose-free protein milk and it has been an absolute life saver, and is allowing me to get at least 60g, woo hoo! Now, a week out, I’m able to drink Water pretty “normally” (no chugging of course but normal sized sips) and fuller liquids a little slower, but still pretty normal.

Unfortunately, today was my first day at work and while absentmindedly scrolling on my computer, I accidentally gulped down 8oz of the fairlife very quickly, like in a couple minutes. I felt no protest in the moment, but now I feel full and a little gassy and just overall gross. I am hoping that someone else has had this experience and can let me know how quickly they felt better, and, god forbid, if there was any lasting damage. Thanks everyone!

From what I understand, fluids alone can't stretch or damage anything. Liquids pass without restriction. Honestly, I get INSANELY thirsty sometimes and chug Water and, yes, it hurts, but I seriously seriously need water at that time. It only hurts briefly for me, though, and I've only done this with water... so maybe other stuff causes the gasiness.

I can drink a lot in a small period of time. I have to really make myself slow down. I drank 8 oz of Fairlife milk last night. It went down super easy. Probably 15 minutes with no ill effects. I’m 2 weeks

i took a big gulp of Water, it was super painful. i learned not to take big gulps like i used to. water will take the least resistance so I doubt it will stay and stretch.

I've done it a few times. I was told it won't damage anything but it just takes forever for your stomach to drain it because it's still swollen. I was told if I accidentally do it to get up and walk to help move stuff a long.

      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.

        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.
