6 days since surgery and my abs finally aren't hurting.



Recommended Posts

Seems like it's going to be a great day, the sun is shining, I took my first crap, I ate a piece of Hillshire farms black Forest ham around 1am and still no problems, my Decaf coffee and slim fast caramel latte 1/2 bottle is going down just smooth, my horse pill medications that my surgeon told me to keep taking are going down fine. I want to thank everyone for their support and to the ladies: love ya, to the guys: fist bump.

I thought about that too. I'm wanting meat, it's always been my staple as far as food go. I woke up dreaming about a salted ham. I chewed the hell out of each bite. It was emulsified before I swallowed and took around 10 minutes to eat 1 slice. No grumbling from my gut some of the horse pills I have to swallow were bigger than the bites. And it was great. This body craves meat and always has.

Oh, be careful eating solid food so soon after surgery. Glad you had your first bowel movement, that always is a blessing. But follow your eating plan closely, please, to avoid any problems. Stay on liquids for two weeks, then soft foods, before venturing into solids. Take care and good luck on your weight loss journey.

I concerned. Should you be eating solid food yet?
My surgeon said he leaves the hole between the new stomach and the first connection bigger than normal and has never had a leak. And only 2 times had a strictures that were easily repaired. He told me around a week out try some very easily chewed foods very little at a time to see what I can handle, and to give at least 2hrs apart from each other with Water in between. I STRAIT UP TOLD HIM WHEN WE FIRST MEET THAT I DONT EAT ANYTHING LIKE BABY food EVEN MASHED POTATOES. He told me that he has other patients that don't like their food this way and he will have me be the blender. I will skip a stage and be very careful. I am planning on getting another slice around noonish. Thank you for your concern though. [emoji106]

I find it very strange how 2 different surgeon's tell their patients to follow different directions after surgery. Thank you all for your concerns. [emoji106]

Well today has so far turned out to be EXCELLENT! Except normal everyday pains. I HAVE SO FAR GOTTEN IN 36 OZ Water AND OVER 60 GRAMS OF Protein AND MY B12 5000MCG AND 2 OF MY 3 calcium citrate 630MG. WILL HAVE TO GET BACK ON THE WATER IN 10 MINUTES! My energy level up so I'm going to walk my dog for the first time since the day before surgery. He is super gentle to walk. I can let go of his leash and he will still walk in the heal position. Love this boy. Picture is from 2 yrs ago. White German Shepherd.

After your concern, I put in a call to my surgeon's nurse. She just called me back and said my surgeon has no problems with it as long as I chew to a pulp and eat only around an ounce at a time of one item. I need to find what hurts and what don't. He was impressed I started with ham and not something sweet like canned fruit like most others do. I told him I want meat. He said I can mix lean meat in my shakes as long as it's very small specks left. But nothing with seeds or nuts till after my appointment on the 20th.

That slice of deli ham went down like a champ as well. It was purred before each bite slid in over in around 10 minutes.

Your incisions are looking good! Totally different places that mine though. Of course mine was a revision from sleeve. I have one directly inside my belly button and one on the right side of belly. The others are all below my belly button.

mine was also done robotically.

I see another little cutie back behind Bruno. Did he get to go for a walk too?

actually the more I look I think your incisions are about the same as mine were for sleeve.

No Piglet can't and won't behave on or off a leash, he is my scurge around here. Was a wonderful puppy and had him snipped at 3 months old. Around 8 months he thought he was top dog of the world. He still hates everyone else but my wife. It's a constant conflict battle around here. He thinks my wife is his, he got the hell whipped out of him once when he bit me and broke skin while handing her her glasses. He's never bit me again. We just live to hate each other. Now my 2 cats and German Shepard get along great. If they get to close the little S**T will take a bite out of them. My German Shepard won't put up with his crap and dragged his butt out the doggie doors and laid on the porch for a few hours not letting him in. Funny as hell.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
