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!!!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
