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

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
