Advanced Post-op Diet too quickly. scared



Recommended Posts

Hello so i had my gastric bypass surgery on 2/5/2020 and today 2/14/2020 i ate Soup with noodles. I only had 3 bites but i am terrified. I dont know why i did it i know i shouldnt have and im scared of what will happen. I dont want my stomach to leak and i dont want to get sick. My tummy feels fine-ish ive been having a numb feeling on it but besides that i dont know what to do. I am super ashamed and scared.

It sounds like you got away with it, just don't do it again. The hardest part of this surgery is how very mindful you must be of how and what you eat. You should be fine, but stick to your plan!

I had my sleeve on 2/10 so I empathize with how hard this post op diet is. It sounds like you are really concerned, so maybe reach out to your surgeon's office and see if there are any signs you should be on the look out for. You will feel better and be able to put this behind you. Don't keep beating yourself up!

If you didn't experience any discomfort you are probably OK. Soups are slider foods. That means they slide through your pouch quickly.

I had surgery same day as you and have had to be creative on meals; Proteins drinks; egg drop Soup (minus MOST of the egg drop) I just use a small spoon and chew it; 4 bites in and I'm good. I've also had a bit of homemade Tomato Soup and its been like heaven! We just flash peel the tomatoes first as to not have the skin..

Hang in there and don't be so hard on yourself! We got this!

      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!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      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.
