8/12 crew-how's your pre-op diet going? I'm pleased to find that each day my hunger is lessening. I've dropped my calorie count on MFP down from 1350/day to 1100 day. Hoping that slowly cutting down before hand (plus eating much healthier in general) will be good prep for the post op period. I'm not looking forward to Sunday though, day before surgery and I'm on Clear Liquids only.

8/2/19 here.. .. the first 2 days were the most painful due to gas pain.. not at the insicion site or even my new sleeve.. re gas moving from side to side was the worst.. that being said once you burp it all or fartvit all it's been a good 6 days..
3rd day out we shopped Costco
4th days out we shopped at sams club and 5th day out I took my brother in law to the shooting range.. just make sure you hydrate

Hello everyone,

I got my surgery date last week and was beyond thrilled. Fast forward to this week, and my excitement has turned into a lot of fear. My surgery date is scheduled for August 30th, and I'm really nervous and scared, and doubting my decision. I just need to hear your guys' experiences, and to know that the recovery is not all that bad. I'm going to go through with it, I'm just so anxious and scared right now. Plus, the idea of having a 3 ounce stomach just freaks me out. How are you all doing?

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
