Luckily I’m urinating fine. Haven’t had a BM yet tho. The gas still hurts. I had a hynial hernia repair with my sleeve and drinking Water is super painful. They weirdly took me off my iv earlier today. Which I thought was strange since I can’t even finish a 16 oz of water.

I had a bypass and I know that's different, but my procedure was April 1, and I didn't experience a BM until April 3rd. Gas preceded it by about 12 hours, then led it in, lol.

That’s good to know. Hopefully I’ll have one tomorrow since that’s my 3rd day. The doctor said it might not be for a week, which I’m not looking forward to if it does take that long.

They had the Water on ad off full run and drip drip and nothing:( It is a little after midnight and cath will come out at 6am and I get to start trying again. I also think that is when I get to try to drink water. Today was nothing not even water.

So I was taken off my iv sometime mid morning the day after my surgery since I'm drinking well and urinating. I was also discharged and home less than 24hrs after surgery. I'm tired and tender but most of my pain I think is gas related so I'm just drinking my Water and trying to move around as much as possible. No flatulence or BM yet, just burps. It's really nice to see my little one. Missed him so much.

I’m sorry about the cath. I at least got ice chips yesterday to go with the IV. Hopefully today will be better for you.

So, my operation is on Tuesday 22nd April. I’m so nervous but excited. I started my pre-op diet yesterday. It ended in disaster, I started of so well with the Protein Shakes but by late afternoon I got such a bad Migraine with nausea I ended up eating a sandwich so I could take my meds. Within an hr I was slightly better.

I’m not sure what caused the migraine. But I’m hoping I have better luck today.

If you guys have any advice I’d appreciate it.

They did just come in and give me gabapentin (so) and liquid Tylenol and a few teaspoons of Water which went down well.. shew!! And the cath is coming out in a few minutes. Yay!!!

I get Migraines as well so I’m sorry for your pain. How many Protein Shakes can you have per day? It seems different drs allow different things are you allowed other items besides the shakes?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
