Almost a week since the surgery and adjusting



Recommended Posts

So my surgery was on the 18th and I'm currently in my full liquids phase (puree is on the 1st!) It no longer hurts as food goes down but I'm still trying to adjust to timing with eating and I feel starving at times. Hoping I get adjusted to that eventually.

I had RNY on Oct 1st and this is no joke. Ended up back in the hospital once. It's such a trial an error to figure out how much to drink how fast...etc..... 2 oz of meat in my baby measuring cup looks like nothing I want to use a kitchen scale but my plan says DO NOT use the scale only a measuring cup....I feel like I'm eating nothing. I'm so tired, I can't do much more than walk for exercise.... One of my belly button incisions looks weird....random pains sometimes...

Good for you! I actually preferred the liquid stage. shakes for Breakfast, broth for lunch then maybe a yogurt (thinned out with soy milk) for dinner. Just easier! @Mikeyy

Hang in there! I am 7 weeks out and my stomach still feels like it is asking to eat, but I have learned to ignore it because I know it is constantly active/churning still. I eat when I think I should eat and ignore it the rest of the time! It isn't to bad, just a constant something going on down there lol

Thanks for the encouragement @VIKING 0424 that’s so good to hear. I’m 1 month out and agree with everyone’s complaints above. Plus still so tired all the time. Glad there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

My energy increased at 6 weeks, so you are almost there! Don't get me wrong... I still get wiped out if I overdo it, but I have more energy than I have had for years.

Lol @mdhender87 don’t read the post-op boards before your surgery 😂 At least, I’m glad I didn’t or I would’ve questioned the choice. Despite the struggles, I definitely don’t regret it. As hard as it is, it’s better than the path we were doing down. Good luck with your surgery and recovery!

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
