I had my bypass surgery on the 12th this month and I've started to drink the Protein Water I could tolorate it before surgery and now I can't. I also cannot tolorate any of the milk or powder I'm very worried to get malnourished I don't know what to do.

Are you vomiting or do you have an upset stomach? You may want to call your dietician for options and malnutrition concerns

I'm not vomiting I just get the upset stomach where it hurts and feel like I'm gonna vomit so I stop because I don't wanna cause any damage because my surgery is so fresh

Are you drinking slowly? taking small sips then setting it down?

Yes that's all I do is sip I fill the 1oz cup they give at the hospital and I take sips from there and after every sip I wait about 5 min and it turns my stomach to where if I keep going I'm going to throw up

What brand are you drinking? Before my surgery I was trying out Premier Protein Water, with no problem. However AFTERWARDS, I couldn't stand it! I found it to be much too sweet. I had to split the bottle & mix it with equal parts water.

I found Protein 2O, which I find to be much better. The Grape & berry flavors are my favorite. I don't care for the pineapple/coconut one as much. I get them from Rite-Aid.

Perhaps a different brand might help.

Protein 20 is what I tried along with the primer. Then the milky shakes and a few different powder ones. They all don't sit right with me. I've spent so much money on different things that I don't know anymore.

I don't like the milky shakes & powders either. I'm sorry you're having a hard time finding something that works for you.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
