Hubz & I are now 10 days post op. Surgery wise we’re doing great but last night we ended up in the ER with Hubz for kidney stones. He’s now in bed snoozing and I’m barely holding my eyes open dreaming about an iced coffee with double espresso lol. VSG wise we both get abound pretty well. He was able to cut the yard yesterday and we are able to do everything around the house and for the kids that we need to. We have left side pain but we have pretty good pain tolerances and rather breathe through it than take pain medicine. Don’t QUITE make our Protein every single day yet but if we don’t we are pretty close, it will come in time. Counting down the days until we move to purées/soft at day 15. We’re pretty over liquids at this point. As of this morning he’s lost 28lbs and I’ve lost 24.

*This little update is cross posted to the post-op thread, I wanted those who hadn’t gone yet to get it too*

CONGRATULATIONS!!

I think it's SO cool that you two are going through this together.

Sorry about Hubby's kidney stones! I have been through that - VERY painful!

I figure if I could survive passing a kidney stone, VGS surgery will be a breeze! LOL!

He’s still in a good bit of pain waiting on them to pass but hopefully soon! And we hopped on the scale as soon as we got home

My Protein for after surgery came in! Fingers are crossed that these are still my favorite ones after surgery. I've tried Walmart brand, Muscle Milk, Organic, and yuck yuck yuck! I really like these two. I havent tried the Isopure yet, but I remember seeing someone reccomend it. Are there any other brands of protein yall like that I should give a try? Also, did yall who've recently had surgery do fine with the thickness of Protein Shakes after you got home from surgery? 20190721_023506.jpeg

Hello everyone. I am 3 days post op and honestly I’m in so much it’s hard for me to get out of bed but I am getting out of bed and walking and trying to get all my liquids and Protein in. I’m forcing myself to drink stuff because I don’t want to lose my hair and I don’t want to b dehydrated. Can’t wait to kind of be back to normal hopefully soon. 😕

Keep pushing! It does get better. You can do this. I still struggle with Protein intake (1-week post-op) but I believe in US. I am happy you are moving and walking as that is so very important!!!!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
