Hi there. I had my gastric bypass revision on April 3. My original gastric bypass was in 2004. My surgeon on April 3 fixed a 3-inch hole in my pouch. Good luck all!

I love the Premier Peotein shakes. Lots of variety and they taste great.

Anyone going for the op on the 17th would quite like to buddy up with someone? Also anyone on here from the uk?

Just curious did anyone else end up with a surprise hernia repair? I feel better today but now wondering how the hell they expect me to take all these meds that have to be crushed and are not a delight to take;) all of them but 2 have to be crushed urg!!! But on the plus side I’m finally going pee and had a bm and that did make my stomach feel somewhat better yay!

Ughhhh even though I start the next phase today (yay yogurt!!!) I’m in that darkness where I’m depressed and regret my decision, thinking I’ve screwed myself over for life. Hopefully it passes soon.

Anyone who shares my date (April 4) lose weight yet? I gained 4 lbs in swelling a Fluid retention. Stupid scale. Today I’m getting plain Greek yogurt from TJs and frozen fruit to blend in. I can’t stand the low calorie, pre mixed fruit yogurts. I thank pain meds for helping me think outside of the box!

Hi all!
My surgery was at 7:30am this morning. I was in recovery until about noon so about three hours (I think they were just waiting for a vacant room) and I slept most of the time. I’m on my first attempt to drink some water! Feeling bloated and a little pain in my abdomen, but mostly just like a bad period cramp 😂 so far so good! Glad to be on the losers bench and i don’t post a ton but it has been wonderful reading everyone’s progress! Everyone is doing awesome and I hope everyone else that had theirs today is recovering well!

I'm waiting til tomorrow when I have my one week follow up to weigh so I'll let you know then. It feels like I lost because I can bend over and put my socks on a lot easier. I'm afraid of the Water retention too because of all this salty broth we've been drinking all week.

I am an April 4, too. I was 330 the day I flew to SoCal. This morning, my one week weight was 316.6. I've weighed myself at intermediate points and it does fluctuate (ladies, you will probably fluctuate more than I will monthly) with Fluid balance, but I am down a bunch.

Congratulations! I hope you have a smooth recovery. If the Water doesn't go down well try heating it up a little.

Thank you for the tip @justmetj!!!! I will definitely keep that in mind. @naiad my mom came with me and has been with me most of the day, but they told me there was no visitation limitations so I have a couple friends planning on coming when they get off work. No one could visit while I was in the recovery room but now that I’m in my own room for the night I think anyone can come visit.

I don’t have to crush any pills and I have been taking 3 until tomorrow then I take all of my Vitamins, home now, took a shower and feel sooo much better. Left side tender but dr said it would be that’s where they did most of the work I just found out today no yogurt until I can have milk in 6 months. I start the purées stage tomorrow.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
