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).

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
