I think I turned a bit of a corner today. All of a sudden I can drink more Water. I was getting close to my water target before, but it was work. Today it's going down easily.

I had a large drop in weight initially, but the rest of the past week it's been just sort of trickling away. Down 10lbs from the morning of surgery, 8 days ago.

Only concern is I think that my remaining blood pressure med might be too strong. I'm dealing with a bit of dizziness and a headache. My blood sugars are fine so... I see my regular doc next week, so I'm hoping it will be adjusted.

Post op Day # 5. I feel great. Hitting my Protein requirements (the protein shots are great to get it in). Hitting Water goals, no problem. Mild pain. I have learned I can not just take my pm meds and lay down, nope, I must sit up straight until they digest. I have only have been drinking water and protein shots or shakes. I did cook a tiny amount of chicken of mushroom Soup and got it in. One can could be 4 servings easily.

Well it is to be expected; you are about to embark on a journey that will last the rest of your life. Yes you have done a lot of the preliminaries, but as my Late Daddy would say "Its time for the s*** to hit the fan!" Gosh I miss some of his witticisms! You know it is odd the things you remember. I remember being a mini-Frustr8, attending parades, my little town had lots of them, and Daddy hoisting me up,on his shoulders so I could see better. And how safe I felt! I normally have acrophobia, fear of heights, but never with Daddy, he kept me safe. And I'll close with a thought from my motivational app, says it pretty fine.
" Don't think what can happen in a month. Don't think about what can happen in a year. Focus on the 24 hours in front of you & do what you can to get closer to where you want to be."
Love 💘, hugs and prayers🙏 from Frustr8 for all your Tomorrows.

You'll do fine! I had my procedure the 20th and forget that I had major surgery! The first 24 hours are the worst. Just keep walking and do not be afraid to ask for pain or nausea medication if you need it.

Good to hear you guys are doing great! Mine was on the 27th and I still have a catheter in...but I want it out soooo badly. ..and maybe a bit TMI but my bowels started again after 5 days. It was the blackest poo i've ever seen. Still having a bit of gas pain in the right shoulder when i go to bed at night, but when i walk around for a bit, it helps. Damn that phrenic nerve!

So all in all, Im still feeling like a wuss.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
