Hello I have my surgery on January 6, 2020 and I just got a question in the beginning I wasn’t able to get any of the Protein Shakes or mixes of any kind down I would throw it all up , so I was fast forward to more softer foods so I can get Protein out of what I eat as of right now I am 20 days out from surgery and I haven’t lost any weight I gained is there any reason for that ?
Surgery wait 230 , four days later 237 , on 14 January I went down to 221 , A week later I went to see my nutritionist for the first time since surgery and I went back up to 229 now I have also had a hernia repair at the same time as my surgery right after surgery for four days I wasn’t hungry now I’m constantly hungry and I’m getting approximately 50 to 60 g of protein a day

Sounds like you may be consuming too many carbs/sugar..?

What do you eat each day?

Breakfast consists of a half scrambled egg then I start my Water consumption lunch tuna salad more water consumption I sometimes do pick in between it’ll be a string cheeseOr sugarless applesauce or sugar-free popsicle . dinner it will be grilled chicken if I have anything left in my stomach room for a little bit of mashed potatoes a spoonful of peanut butter
More water consumption maybe I have to get more water in the day

im on soft food stage right now

That all seems fine.. Do you put dressing on sauces on salad or chicken?

Doesn't look like you're getting much Protein?

Okay well I'm confused how you can't be losing anything?

I personally have about double that amount of Protein though and less carbs; like Keto without the fat...

That’s what I’m saying I’m confused too I talk to my nutritionist and she said she’s not worried about it but I am now granite before my surgery before my 10 day pre-op diet I was 271 now 228 that is a considerable weight loss but now that I had the surgery I’m 20 days past my surgery and I am not losing any I gained I’m starting to wonder whether he did the operation right or not

From your screenshot it says you consumed 300+ calories for breakfast...

What was your total calories for the entire day? (I'm unsure if the 668 shown for calories is total consumed? Or total remaining?)

This thread is a little confusing because two different posters have posted two different problems. I'm responding to the original posters here:

OP - how long have you been stuck at 217? If it's just a week or two, you're in a stall. If you're talking a month or more, then you're eating enough calories to throw you into maintenance.

if it's been just a couple of weeks, just keep sticking to your plan and your weight will eventually start dropping again. If it's been more than a month, then try cutting your calories by about 100 per day. If after a couple of week you're still not losing, cut by another 100 and see what happens. Rinse and repeat until the weight loss starts up again.

as for the hunger - yes, it does eventually return for most of us, unfortunately - and things get more challenging after that 😞

Good point @catwoman7...didn't realize there were two different posters probs on here!

Oopsies

@msilva_777: what @catwoman7 said. Also it would help others troubleshoot if you updated your profile with your stats and provide a couple day's worth of data of what exactly you eat/drink in a day.

@MissPennyP : see above...

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

      3. biginjapan

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
