yup, i didnt pass gas for four days. i barely got down the Protein Shakes, and i barely finished a bottle of Water. its important to just keep sipping water. slip all day like every 10 minutes.

i had a hernia repair at the same time. trust me i know your pain, im now 8 days out. you got two more days of hell, probably one more day of gas pains. you will feel weak, not hungry, cant drink or eat anything. i was only able to get down 2 oz of low sodium broth three times a day. half a sugar free popsicle if i was lucky, and i had pain meds given to me so many times i lost count. i almost threw up the sugar free Jello, so i havent even tried that again yet. the important thing is Water and walking. walking will help move the gas out. if you have one of those stomach wraps the hospital may have give you, that is a life saver/

every now and then i get a little bit of stabbing pain at night, but i just take a hydrocodone and im able to sleep without pain. i wake up without reflux, my sleep apnea is gone and its some of the best sleep i have had in years.

Greenstar you are my life saver at the minute. I had a meltdown on my husband today...just sobbed (all be it silently as too much crying action is agony) I have just managed to eat a banana muller yogurt...it was painful but I’m sure I feel a bit better for it...xx

for me i was told post op diet for 3 days was to be low sodium broth, sugar free Jello, or sugar free popsicle. after that it was Protein Shakes for 11 days. also Water and a lot of it.

Today (following my monumental sobbing to my hisband) I’ve managed 200ml of Water, a smooth banana yogurt, 1/2 a portion of a smooth pea Soup comtaining Protein & Vitamins. I’ll take that.

I’m going to try a peppermint tea for supper.

Oh & I’ve had three trumps which I’m overjoyed about.

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
