Struggling to get in all my Protein. I can’t seem to tolerate the shakes since surgery. They don’t stay down very well and taste awful now. What is everyone else doing to get enough protein? Any good recipe ideas?

I hate sweet drinks so bought unflavored whey protein (Unjury, Isopure, etc) mixed with Water and broth. Tastes like a weird Soup but better than the sweet stuff. If you can’t tolerate whey, try other forms of protein. Good luck.

Surgery on the 6th of Feb. feeling great except in the evening and seem to get nauseated. Feel hungry all the time and having trouble with getting the Protein and Water. Afraid to try new foods as fear of the sick feeling. Also liquids seem to just rest on the top of my stomach and takes time to move on down, mean while am miserable. Anyone else have that issue.

This is tmi but I literally just threw up after about 45 minutes of eating less than 1 whole scrambled egg. It was just sitting in my chest(at least that’s what it felt like) I used to be able to eat a full egg scrambled with no problem. Last night, I had the same thing with some chicken that I’ve had no issue with before. I don’t know what’s going on. I can’t get a lot of drink down either. I have a virtual 6 week appointment tomorrow. Will bring it up then.

This is so weird cos I started feeling like I have a rock on my chest if I eat more than half a cup of Soup or more than 1/4 cup of solid food. I don’t hv any issues with all the foods but the quantity is miniscule and definitely e rock goes from chest to tummy and leads to being stuck 😭

There hasn't been many nice days in Massachusetts lately. I've only been cleared to walk and there's not alot of walking going on.

I feel your pain. It was starting to warm up, snow was melting and freezing to ice at night. And now we’re having snow storms. With windchill it’s been around -27 C out (-16F). It’s hard to get out much and walk because of the cold, deep snow, and hidden icy Patches. Normally I’d go and walk around a mall or walking track, but everything is closed (understandably).

Weighed myself this morning and I may be experiencing another stall. I weigh once a week and my weight was the same as last week. I'm not too worried as I am following the plan. Just part of the process I assume. I’ve lost a total of 23 lbs since surgery (sleeve) on 2/27.

Anyone dealing with heartburn? I was on the acid reducer rx for 30 days after surgery. I finished the rx 3 days ago and then a day later I have this burning in my chest. It's not too bad just annoying at this point. I've never had heartburn so not sure if this is it

Does anyone feel lightheaded in the morning? I assume this is because it’s the longest I go without eating or drinking. I have to get up very slowly and I immediately start drinking some Water I leave next to me overnight.

My routine with exercise has definitely changed too. I used to work out in the morning but now I just don’t have the energy... literally!!! I’m good towards the end of the day and I think that’s because my Fluid and Protein are at a peak.

I’m averaging about 900 calories a day right now- I’ve been lucky and I can eat anything without issue. Just have to measure everything as it is more about not having the room rather than what the food is. Hard boiled eggs and chicken were easy so I’m happy to be eating them again. I’ll be 6 weeks postop on 4/7.

Starting weight- 228
Current weight- 205

I get a little nausea in the morning when I first drink something but never lightheaded.

I'm almost at 6 weeks too. Wow 900 calories seems like alot. I barely eat anything. Maybe like 4-500 calories. I can tolerate most foods too but I'm never hungry and just seems like a hassle to eat.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
