March 2020 Surgery Folks Come On in!



Recommended Posts

Had my surgery on the Monday 3/2, came home the next day. Tummy is very sore, to be expected. However I can’t get all the liquids down, had to cut the dosage in half but still feels very full. Anyone else having these issues?
Just sip on it all the time

How did your surgery go?

She posted in the post-op thread. She should be home by now. She was experiencing a lot of cramping and she said that they gave her some meds for that.

I had my pre op visit today. I have to do one week of liquids pre op and can’t have even soft, solid soft foods until 9 weeks. I’m talking cottage cheese and scrambled eggs. Is that normal? The nurse said my doc is very conservative but dang!

So what are you supposed to have weeks 2-9?

Are any of using myfitnesspal to log your calories. Today was my 22nd day of logging but it’s the first day on the liquid diet so I’m wayyyy under their calories recommendation. So it will not allow me to complete my days into. Anyone know how to “fix” this?

You add something to your diary in order to get over 1k calories (the minimum) and finish your log, then go in and edit it to remove the calories so you get an accurate count. Not completing the diary doesn't affect your streak of logging or anything though. I did 1 year 3 months straight last time and I'm on 117 days since I entered the bariatric program and started logging again, and I've only completed it a few times. I always forget by the end of the day.

March 12th for me (it was supposed to be the 5th, but I would have been the last patient for the day - with a late afternoon operation!!! They asked if I wanted the first available for the next week and I agreed. Tomorrow is my pre-op testing. I had my lap band removed in 2015, and I'm having "revision" to bypass. I'm beyond excited, but I worry that something is going to jinx it. One week of two required weeks of liquid pre op diet, and no replacement hormones has made me a bit grumpy to say the least!
I remain skeptical until I'm on that OR table, sound asleep! 😛

I have to do liquids for 4 weeks after surgery then move to puree foods for 4 weeks then soft foods like eggs for 4 weeks sounds similar

Hey Mello 1, you are truly awesome to provide updates and etc. I've moved to the couch today, much better. The Bariatric Nurse checked in with me and told me to take the Gas -X. She also recommended the heating Pad, which I started using earlier today. I appreciate it, now for this sore throat, ugh!!! Better than Bullion broth is great, veggie flavor is nice. I'm also consuming more fluids today, thank goodness. I had a few mind trips for the first time while on this journey last night and early hours of the morning. The emotions are real, the mind will tell you that you are hungry, the body is healing (practice patience with yourself), you may weigh more when you first come home ( don't worry about it), we just had a major surgery...Walk that gas out as much as possible, it is deceptive and will mess with your mental. That gas is the devil. I'm also developing a sore throat as mentioned, but I'm going to have to deal with it. We are here and we will see this through, I will be okay. I'm thankful for Bariatric Pal and each of you for understanding the importance of having a positive connection in this community. Life is a struggle and it's good to have a healthy outlet.
