Congratulations on your surgery! I'm still in the pre-surgery process. This is a dumb question but what's the difference between liquids and full liquids?

Hi, Clear Liquids are what you can see through and sugar free for liver shrinking diet. Sugar free Jello, tea, broth, sugar free popsicle.

Full liquids is no lumps, you can have sugar free pudding, strained cream Soups, milk.

I was allowed Protein Shakes and Tomato Soup on my preop diet. You will need with hour surgeon to check as others were not.

good luck

It was just slightly painful for about a week, but now it is just a slightly weird feeling, enough to remind me my stomach is there lol.

Thanks! For full liquids I was allowed Protein Shakes, yogurt drinks, thin creamed Soups, and sugar free hot chocolate.
Tomorrow I start full liquids, so pudding, pureed Soup, cottage cheese, and greek yogurt.

I was the same with nausea. I take Zofran and it helps a little. I’m 7 days out now, and it’s a lot better.

I’m starting my journey in getting the bypass. I have 6 months to get all my requirements done. That’s no problem. I’m just having a hard time opening up to my family about this. Anyone have advice in how to talk about what I’m doing?

It is your journey not theirs. When you tell them say that you appreciate their input, but you are doing this for you.

I've got 2 drugs to take to line my stomach and one I have to dissolve in Water tastes like bad chalk, not that I ate any. I'm better now after my first shower and I'm sipping my Protein Drink so I'm slowly making progress. I have no pain meds and I'm doing fine. I just keep saying one day at a time.

      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

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
