My surgery is a little over two weeks away. I've been on a hybrid liquid diet since April 1. Phase 2 of my liquid diet starts Thursday (5-6 glucerna shakes and 200 cals of veggies per day). Hopefully it will knock out the last three pounds I need to lose before surgery.

I need to get active again... I want at least 12000 steps a day between now and surgery.

I've also been prepping for my family, cooking freezer meals for the first couple of weeks post op when I know I won't want to be in the kitchen at all. This Friday I'm going to hit up a couple of health food stores for some samples of Protein powders to try before I commit to stocking up on something in particular.

Good luck to us all...

hello! I converted from lapband to bypass on May 1 (single stage). Spent two nights in hospital. First day was rough due to nausea. But have had very little pain except when I stand up or sit down the larger insision where the port was removed hurts momentarily.

I didn’t use any of the narcotic in the pain pump and haven’t even had a Tylenol!

I am able to drink my liquids and walk. Although I do get tired pretty quickly!

But I hope all your surgeries go as smoothly!

Stella thanks for sharing your experience with the bypass surgery. I'm waiting for approval from my insurance companies for the RNY revision after 2 1/2 years post OP for sleeve.
I am absolutely miserable and hope that once approved by my insurance companies that I can have surgery soon.
Hopefully mine will be as easy as my sleeve surgery was.
Good luck

Melody is the duodenal switch the same as the RNY??
I'm waiting for approval from my insurance companies for the RNY revision after the sleeve 2 1/2'years ago.My acid reflux disease has gotten so much worse than it was before the sleeve surgery.
How many days of all liquids are you having to do??
Hope you are doing great.

Finally on the other side! Surgery was yesterday and I’m feeling great! The gas was horrible but then I vomited so that took care of most of it. When I went for my x Ray the dye was taking too long to pass through my new stomach. They said it’s because I was so swollen but I’m scared that something is wrong and they’re gonna have to go back in. We’ll see tomorrow morning! Bring on the new life!!!

      this one is a bit of a slog to get thru but it is important to see the differences they are trying to define.

      Dinner tonight was: a dessert plate (cuz it's small) topped w/ dark leafy greens, refried beans & stewed shredded chicken. Pretty good.

      This is great, but having difficulty changing where it says under my moniker & next to my profile picture, "Pre Op" to ---> "Post Op".  I'm new, but had my Gastric Bypass procedure 06 February 2018. Halp! lol  Also, how do I post Before & current "After/ Work In Progress" photos?  Do I post it/ them in this status box? Any assistance appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance. Toodles!

      Day 2 of pureed food diet, 15 day post Sx. I'm eating lunch (leftover taco ground beef mixed with 2% cottage cheese) and wondering "Am I full? Am I full? How will I know I am full?" I've prepared about a 1/2 cup total and eaten about a half of that. Then I get the familiar pressure behind my sternum, like a burp is just sitting there wanting to come up. I hiccup a couple times and gas bubbles up from my belly. There's no feeling of fullness in my stomach, its all in my chest. I guess this is full for me? I am just learning what full feels like. For the new me, fullness isn't leaning back from the table with my hands on my belly wanting to unbutton my jeans. Fullness is a feeling low in my chest that the food has stopped going down. Air is trying to escape to make room. It's the feeling of really needing to burp. Still learning.

        I get a heavy feeling in my chest and can't burp, then the hiccups come and they are loud and obnoxious
