Hi my name is Tasha had a vsg on 03-19/2020.

starting weight 232 as of today 03-31-2020 I’m 209. Recently I have been feeling as if I made a terrible mistake having the surgery. I am still on liquids but doctor has allowed me to have eggs only but continue apple sauce pudding Jello all sugar free. I like to know how others are feeling out there!

You are doing well so far, that's great to see. I have been pretty happy with my recovery (except for a bad case of contact dermatitis) and food and liquid tolerance is going well so far.

Why only eggs I wonder? Eggs are one of the harder things to tolerate at this stge for a lot of people. I am just starting the second week of my pureed diet, my dietician recommended trying eggs and cottage cheese last as they can be difficult for a lot of people in the early stages.

A lot of people think they have made a mistake in the early days and weeks for various reasons. Why do you feel it has been a mistake for you?

@TashafromCT Hi Tasha! Welcome to the forum! I had VSG on 3/3/20 so I’m 4 weeks out today. You’re only 11 or 12 days out.
Girl, I feel you! For the first couple of weeks I was like what the hell have I gotten myself into. But it gets better. By the end of the 3rd week I got my energy back finally.
Now I’m not eating much more than you but I feel pretty dang good. The only things not making me sick right now are eggs, cottage cheese and Refried Beans. The source of most of my nutrition is still Protein Shakes and I’m still eating SF popsicles.
I can graduate to more foods this week but I feel as if I’m not ready and my new tummy may need another week or two. You will learn as you go along your body will let you know when you’re ready to progress...of course always follow your surgeon’s advice.
My start weight on 10/7/19 was 256.6 on date of surgery 3/3 I weighed 230. Today I’m 214!
it’s so exciting!! Keep reaching out.
there are so many wonderful people on this forum who want to share their experience.

why are you feeling you made a mistake?? You just feel like crap?? It gets better. ❤️

Thank you so much for your reply! The reason I feel it’s a mistake is because I pushed myself I felt it wasn’t meant to be because I always felt like things were getting in my way to stop me from having my surgery. 😢😢 my doctor has me worried now because he does not want me to go outside because of coronavirus.... I am so happy so happy you reached out to me made my morning ❤️

Hi thanks for the reply! I just felt like so many things would get in my way when it would get closer to surgery date.... and also friends who Had the same surgery are actually not there for me which hurts but it’s okay.... Doctor told me cottage cheese as well but I don’t like the taste so I actually use light mayo... how are you doing? When did you have your VSG?

I understand that you may think things were working against you. My original surgery was scheduled for 1/14. It got delayed for almost two months. At one point I thought too it wasn’t meant to be. At the very end tho it went super fast. I found out I was approved for my surgery on 3/2 the day before I was scheduled to have it 3/3 and I did my all liquid diet in hopes I would have it. it was that close. So I get it.
here I am on the other side and so happy my life and my body are transforming!
Good luck and don’t give up on this experience! ❤️
