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.

      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.
