July 2019 Surgery Siblings Post-Op



Recommended Posts

4 days post-op from the sleeve and gallbladder removal. Haven’t lost one pound😢. While the pain is manageable I’m struggling to get all my liquids and Protein goals. I have been experiencing terrible headaches that make me dizzy. Trying to stay positive, sip, sip, sip and walk. Still no BMs either.

Had my surgery Monday, I'm home now. Not too sore, just really tender where they pulled out my stomach.

How long does it take.for the gas to be gone?

It depends, everyone’s different. My husband has zero gas pain and I had it a couple days.

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 pre-op thread, I wanted those who hadn’t gone yet to get it too*

I think my first BM was day 5 or 6. Are you taking stool softeners?

Awe that sucks! Some things do taste different after. Tomato Soup actually tastes delicious to me but I’m tired of it now... along with clear Soup, chicken broth, wonton broth and cream of everything lol

So it took me 4 days to lose the surgery weight, then 8 days to lose 9lbs, then things came to a grinding halt for the past 6 days. I started purees 4 days ago, might be related, though calorie consumption is only 600-800.

This afternoon I either had a response to the move to purees or my first experience of dumping syndrome. It was 4 hours after my first egg since surgery. It had also been 4 days since my last, um, bathroom event. We'll see what tomorrow holds...

Per our program On liquids we are to get 200-300cal and once we move to purées next week it’s 500 calories.

Wow, that seems wayyy low. I mean, 3 Protein Shakes alone are 400-450 cals, and I was also supposed to drink 1-2 glasses of skim milk, about 180 cals.

Same here. 2 weeks of 2 shakes a day. Surgery is Tuesday and I am ready to get this show on the road.

Yeah it is low but that’s what the program is. It’s supposed to be a shock to your body and that it definitely is. At first you feel weak but now that it’s been a couple weeks we both feel pretty good. We get worn out a little faster than we might on a normal diet but overall we feel good.
