Hello All !

I am 3 1/2 weeks post op and for the most part I’m doing fine. However since being on solids from Day 15 , I find it very hard to eat 3 4oz meals per day , I vomit after drinking Protein Shakes and I have acid reflux after eating. Anybody else have this ? Does it get better ? Sure I look better on the outside but on the inside I feel terrible. Please tell me it gets better !

P.S. I’ve lost 25 lbs in three weeks ! I’ve lost 50 in total since 1 month pre-op !

Feel free to follow me on IG and i’ll do the same for support ☺️

Congratulations on your weight loss! I had the sleeve done August 2017 and bypass done a month ago. I assume you had the sleeve since you’re having reflux. The reflux isn’t abnormal. Are you on a PPI? I’m really surprised you’re on solid food. I don’t get solids till Thursday and I’ve already gone through this and even my sleeve didn’t get solids till 5-6 weeks.

Try another Protein Drink and scale back the solids for a bit. It might help your reflux. You can eat more smaller meals if that can help. Don’t be afraid to call your doctor or dietician for help!

I had bad acid reflux around Weeks 3-5, but it went completely away and now I don't have it at all anymore. It can get better.

I'm 4weeks post OP and I have very bad acid reflux as well. What I did was I scaled back on solids and went back to more protien shakes. I do feel a little better.

You are going to be well soon... I'm in my 9th month. But when I get my sleeve, I was in liquids the first week, second liquids plus yogurt, third blended, fourth purees, from the fifth for a complete month solids but fiber... 2 oz per meals every 2 hours with Protein Shake, or cheese sticks for Snacks between meals... and then all kind of solid... probably is too soon for your stomach to process it... maybe if you go back to purees for a while or meals without Fiber, try less oz of food too... for me it's help a lot to loose weight and to process food. Sorry my English isn't good if you don't understand anything tell me and I rephrase it...

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
