Venting my struggles



Recommended Posts

I am a little over 1 month post op (sleeve). solid food stage, but I've been struggling since purée stage. The soonest I could get an appointment is this Friday, so I'm just posting in the mean time but will be seeing my doctors about this.

I have no appetite. It feels like I dislike everything I attempt to chew. Sometimes I wanna spit out my Gummy Vitamin before even thinking about swallowing it. I drink Water fine and I've been going back to my Protein drink just to try to keep up my protein intake, but I'm still failing. I don't understand how I'll ever keep up this much protein, all the Vitamins, and all the water while I have zero desires of eating or drinking.

I take my antacid. 2 a day as prescribed, and I take the smallest bites, but still I get acid reflux and nausea.
I'm not uncomfortable, I'm just worried. I feel like I spend most of my day stressing out about my lack of food/protein intake.

You are not failing. You are still in the early stages and it takes awhile to get a new normal. Take a deep breath and try to relax. You can always go back to scrambled eggs and greek yogurt. It took me awhile to be able to eat more then a few bites of solids, but it will happen. Things will feel normal again down the road.

The reflux sucks and your Dr. may want to give you a different prescription. I was given 3 different kinds before it was the right one . Good luck
