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...

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
