8 WEEKS post OP.

Great job! I struggle with Fluid as well. I get about 36 oz. Less than the 48 I was told to get.

It's such a chore to eat and get fluid!

Yes it is a chore and struggle you had surgery 3 days before me. I’ve set alarms to remind me to eat but sometimes it works . If I’m not hungry I cannot force myself to eat. Good luck It might take some time to get a routine

Wow you're looking great, what a transformation already 😁😁

I found (and still do) Water really hard to drink, even though before surgery I was a big water drinker (only thing I drank apart from coffee). These days it just 'bounces back up'! What I've found works is adding some low calorie lemon and barley, or orange and barley cordial to my water, i make it really weak and it does the trick. Really important as I train a fair bit. I'm going to keep persevering with water as I don't want to keep having artificial sweeteners.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      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.
