I had my sleeve on Monday, and I really hear you. I messaged with the hospital nutritionist today and was told to stop trying to get the Protein Drinks in and just concentrate on hydrating liquids because I was showing signs of dehydration, i.e. headache and urine darker than normal. She also said the nausea may abate a bit once I get hydrated, and that regardless for most people it abates over the next few days.

I am genuinely hungry now. Even though the thoughts of eating anything makes me slightly sick.

The Protein Water is disgusting. Here is what I have gotten in today:

24 oz. of water

1 sugar free popsicle (2 oz. of liquid)

1/2 serving of Swanson chicken Bone Broth (4 oz) (also about 4.5 g of protein).

Ginger Tea with a 1/2 tsp of Stevia (8 oz.)

I also had a c. of Iconic chocolate Truffle Protein Drink heated up and drank it as hot chocolate. I can tolerate the Iconic better since it uses Stevia and Monk fruit juice instead of the aspartane or sucralose.

The headache is gone, so even though I have not hit the mark for Clear Liquids I think I may be rehydrated. But my total calories today are 66! No wonder I'm hungry! How the heck do we get through the next 6 days of this?

If this helps, when i first had my sleeve done i threw up the broth because it was sooo gross to me. The 2nd week i tried eating Soup (dont do) but it made me sick also but i was sooo hungry and i was so used to eating food that i was in shock on what i did to my body. My advice is eat sugar free popsicles and drink alot of liquids. Thats what helped me. I drained some Soups though and drank the broth from those and that helped but i drank alot of Water, tea, and like sugar free gatorades. Good luck!☺️

I am ok with the shaved ice and I do better with cold liquids vs room temp

I was told i can have boost glucose control and carnation healthy start which are helping I keep forgetting the tea ... ..and have bouts of hangry because everybody else in the house must be fed. This zero yogurt i have Monday is going to be the best ever lol. Didn't realize how emotional I would be and how fast the weight would be coming off even before surgery i lost 7 lbs from Friday to Monday. I have a heightened sense of smell for food for some reason. I keep getting random painful hiccups and only two of my incisions hurt but the others itch like crazy which I know signifies healing but oddly enough where they injected my blood thinner days ago itches more than anything. But I'm trying to stay positive ..and not bite somebody lol

My DR allowed greek yogurt and cottage cheese for RNY patients that early out. Only 2 oz at a time, but I pretty much lived on those the first week (in addition to Protein shakes).

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
