Congrats! How are you doing so far? I had mine on 2/7. It's nice to connect with people who had surgery around the same time. It's good to go through this journey with others who understand.
I'm still struggling with quite a bit of pain. How are you drinking your Water? My husband says I am gulping air when drinking out of a regular cup, but I'm not sure how else I should be drinking?

I stopped pain meds also, I was afraid of the addictive aspects so I just dealt with it as much as I could. Walking around/moving really really helped

I’m on the phase 2 diet as of today. I’m past the really bad gas stage, but it was awful when it was going on. I’m beginning to feel better. It seems like I may have turned a corner, I really hope so!

I agree Paula. I just stumbled across this site and am glad I did.

Hi. I had mine February 11th. How are you doing so far?
I had mine February 4th! Things are going okay...still feel as though I'm not sure what I'm doing health-wise...but I'm a worrier...so it may be nothing. I am on the puree stage and still in pain. But 27 lbs down. Just need to get my activity up! How are you??

Congrats on your 27 lbs! That's amazing1! I just started puree stage yesterday too. Every so far is making me nauseous. I'm down 11 lbs. I shouldn't be disappointed wit that, but I am. I think I understand why the worrying. This is a huge opportunity to get healthy and an investment in ourselves.

Day 4 post op. Doing great aside from not being able to get Protein Shakes down. Not even half, maybe 1/3. Also, has anyone experienced some tension in the esophagus after sipping? No sure what that could be...

Sounds like gas? Are you drinking from a water bottle? I had the same pain the last 3 days then I switched to a cup and made sure I wasn't breathing as I was drinking. I feel much better now. I can get in about 1.5 Protein Shakes (but it does take most of the day).

I have been drinking from a bottle. However, I'm gonna give your way a try... Are you sipping from a cup? Seems like its difficult for me to sip without air getting in.

Yeah I'm sipping from a cup now. But I take a full breath and exhale before I drink so I don't get in as much air.

I had my surgery on 2/19 . Getting better but recovery is a bit more difficult. Getting in the recommended amount of fluids has been a challenge
Everything I've read so far has said not to stress the amount of fluids you're getting in right now. Make sure you're drinking enough Water to not get dehydrated. Do what you can without causing yourself discomfort.
