Hey ya'll! I searched, and there doesn't seem to be a topic for the June bypassers yet, so I guess I'll start one. I had surgery on Monday the 8th, so 2 days ago. My recovery has been a lot easier than I expected, but I'm really concerned that I'm drinking/swallowing normally and can get down all the fluids I want, which has been a lot since my mouth has been so dry.

I haven't had any nausea or vomiting or even any gas pain that I can tell. I do have some discomfort, but am not sure that is gas pain. Anyway, I am just really worried that I my surgeon didn't make my pouch right or something since the fluids are just flowing freely.

How are you doing post-op so far? If you haven't had surgery yet this month, then stay tuned because you will likely find these posts helpful once the time comes. :)

Congratulations on getting that done! We all worry about worst case scenarios. Relax and focus on recovery. I also had no trouble with fluids after my sleeve or bypass revision. No nausea or gas pain either. I did have a reduced appetite so I didn't have a lot of desire to drink a lot of liquids.

I had surgery on Monday as well. I’m doing okay on fluids. I had horrible gas and stomach spasms. I’m glad you’re doing well. Keep up the good work :)

I'm on the first day of my liquid diet.. i started a day early bc my surgeon said no more weight gain, whatsoever.. so im hoping that the diet & walking will get me down enough for her to cont with surgery on the day of. im sooo terrified that she'll cancel the morning of and ill get extra disappointed/depressed & won't wanna do the program anymore..

if anyone has any liquid diet tips, pls let me know!!!

I had surgery on Monday too! *highfive*

I also feel like I am able to drink so much more than others.. I was so worried it would be a tough task to get down my 60g of Protein but I have been able to get it down with no problem. I am supposed to be taking in 100ml per half hour, but earlier I think I took in 300ml just by miscalculating the time and what I had already taken in. I also caught myself after taking a big swig of Water (I use tiny cups currently to help with that), but no harm has seemed to come from any of it.

As for how I am doing, I feel fine overall! My stomach is a bit uncomfortable where the incisions had been made, and I do get a little gassy, but nothing a good ol' fart or potty break can't solve.. :lol:

Have you tried taking some Gas X yet? I hear that is supposed to be a lifesaver. Each day gets better and better, this first week is the hardest, but we got this!

Just try to go through the motions and not think about it. That's what I did and it worked well.

Good evening, its my first day on this forum. Glad ur first day of liquid diet is going well. I'm nervous about that. I love my toast n rice. I have surgery the 29th. Tuesday. I have appt to talk to the Dr. I will find out when I go on my liquid diet and the specifics. I'm nervous and excited. Then Covid 19 testing (a bit nervous about that. Some say it hurts) the hospital test all patients pre-op n Dr for overall health and safety.

Hi all. By passers will be able to get liquids down pretty easily. Much easier than sleeve patients as bypassers no longer have their pyloric ( sp?) valve intact. Sleevers do.
so don’t worry about liquids sliding down easily if you are a bypass patient.
