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

I'm day 5 of my pre-op diet and miserable. Hungry (water, sugar-free Gelatin, unsalted chicken broth, runny oatleal and proten shakes -_-) and headaches.

May 15th feels so far away (i'm going for the gastric bypass).

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!!!

      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".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
