I'm only to have 64 oz of h2o, and four 2 oz cups of Premier Protein shakes for two weeks. Everyone in the house is eating my favorite foods. I have no stomach pains except for gas. I've been taking 3 gas x chewables as a dose to rid me of gas and bloating. I have Crystal light and shakes and fat free popsicles. Did anyone else want to eat food before it was time? I think I drink too much at once last night. My stomach held it, but I don't want to stretch it or burst my staple line.

How much longer before you progress to the next stage? If its a day or two chat with your surgeon or dietician they may say go ahead (or not). It's hard when we miss the sensation of chewing as well as the pleasure or relief (if a stress eater) that food gave us. It will be a little easier if you find something to distract your mind and hands at the same time.

No doubt there are various post op guidelines when the food stages are introduced at different times, do not progress faster than your post op guidelines unless you have approval from your surgeon or dietician.

While you don't feel any pain it doesn't mean your body has finished healing. Do not compromise your health or future viability of your new small stomach by progressing with approval.

Yes there were a lot us who felt hungry in the all liquid phase. That will decrease quite a bit when you start eating soft foods. I’m 3 weeks out and don’t feel the hunger pains I felt the first couple of weeks. How many days post op are you?

Oh my, yes of course. :D

Hang in there. Count the days. You'll soon be done with the immediate post-op diet.

NO NO NO NO NO

You are not hungry that is you mind messing with you! Take it slow and stay on course if not you will be paying for it big time!

Also you i assume are early in this, Get away from the feeding freenzy in your house, Go read a book while the others eat, Go outside and sit on the deck. it will take some time for you to whip you minds ass and not be bothered by food around you, but at this point way to early and it will mess with your head.

Good news ahead, eventually about 4 months you will not be bothered with seeing food or around it.

Good to know because I’m very hungry now and I have another week on liquids.

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?

      hello! This is my first week researching gastric bypass/sleeve. Can y’all please tell me everything you wish you knew from the start? I have read a lot but I feel like there is going to be some surprising disadvantages and I would like to know now. I think right now I am more interested in the sleeve. Can you please tell me why you chose which one you did? With either procedure are you ever allowed to eat rice again like even after a year? Can you drink alcohol ever again? Thank you in advance

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
