So the last 2 days I have gotten all my Protein in and have gotten almost 600 calories. per day. Would like to get up to 800 once I get on soft phase.

I am doing good with liquids and I finally got the 5 lbs of Water weight off from the hospital. Taking one day at a time.

Had my 1 week checkup today and all is well. He explained the shoulder pain as being transfer pain from all the work they did on the left side with the hernia repair. He said my pouch is the size of a shot glass and the reason I am not feeling restriction is because I have been on full liquids and they flow right on through. So as soon as I move on to solids I will feel it.

He moved me on to the soft phase since I have not had thrown up or been nauseous. So I made ricotta bake and it is delish !! Tomorrow its a scrambled egg and cottage cheese !!!

Weighed in at 178.6 this morning. I am still pretty swollen.

Glad that everything is alright! It takes some days to get rid of the fluids.

Hoping its gone in a few more weeks. My youngest son is getting married June 20th and I would like to be feeling normal and not swollen and bloated. The nurse said I would be fine.

Hope you are having a wonderful vacation !

It took a few days for me. When I was discharged after 5 days I was at my pre-op weight again so most of the Fluid was gone.

Well I haven't been sleeping very well. I am waking up all hours of the night. I took a flex last night to help me relax and sleep with the pain on my right side. I got 6 hours and still felt groggy so I went back and slept another hour or so more and feel a little better.

I had a scrambled egg for Breakfast with parmesan cheese. I ate the whole thing within 15 minutes. I know something is there because it has been 45 min and I just took a sip of juice ( diet oceanspray ) and I thinking it might not be time to drink lol. I gonna wait 30 more minutes just to be safe.

Had my first real Bowel movement today it was Black and firm/hard. Took me all day to relieve myself with Mom and other things, ugh

Weighed in at 177.8 and I am still very swollen on left side and bloated, it sucks. I am getting in just at 600 calories a day. I would think I little more weight would be gone by now but whatever at least I don't feel burning anymore.

It was odd for me. I had no problem with premier with sleeve. I could not tolerate them after bypass at all. It was like they were too fizzy ( if that makes sense) and made me very nauseous. Hopefully you will be able to tolerate them well.





You are correct to take things slow. 7 months out and I am still finding food that I can’t tolerate but did fine with before bypass. Nothing quite like getting that sick feeling after eating something that does not agree with you. The first 2-3 months were hard when it came to finding foods that I could tolerate. It does get easier though.





another odd thing was that I could feel the mesh. It didn’t hurt but I knew it was there.


What kind of diet are you doing
? Still all liquid or soft too!?
I have had an issue with Water my entire sleeve process. I hope this isn’t that bad. What foods do you find issues with? Does it pass right thru you? That’s what I’m worried about ... eating and then running to the toilet etc.
how does one take pills now. Does that get better.
I cannot do liquid meds. Makes me gag and I’m on lexapro liquid. Two nights not can’t do it. Had to cut my pills in 1/4 and do it that way for now.
I really need to set up Vitamin regime too.

I came home 5 lbs heavier and I am only 2.5 down from when I went in.

I am on full liquids and am not having any issues. I have had yogurt, creamed Soups, ricotta bake, and I tried a scrambled egg but it sat there awhile so I wont be doing that for a bit longer.
