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 had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
