That's good to hear, @Losingit2018! I was getting pretty nervous. I even called my hospital where I had surgery to ask, but since its the weekend, the specialists weren't in the office. I am still going to call Monday, though. I am not sure if I should be sticking to 100ml or if its okay to do 100ml-200ml per half hour.

Tomorrow will have been a week since surgery. I've lost roughly 7.5lbs so far! *happy dance*

Wow!! You are doing great!
Early out it is good to keep in mind that there is still a lot of healing to do. Many times it just takes patience to heal before we know exactly how things are going to be for us in the long run. Always a good idea to call dr with any concerns that we have.
keep up the good work!!

Yeah, we were told that it's better to call "too much" than to not and end up doing something that might be harmful. :) I couldn't agree more with it!

I had gastric bypass surgery on Wednesday, June 10th. The gas pain was horrible right after the surgery. I could barely get enough liquid down for them to discharge me. The day after was better and now 4 days post, I am good. I can only get down 60 gms of Protein and 48oz of Water. I have no pain at all. Wishing you all luck on your upcoming surgeries!

I shouldn't have bragged. I gained a 100g! LOL

I am thinking its because of my lack of a poop the past couple days. Hoping these meds kick in soon.

On a good note - I am one week post op!

One more week of liquids and I will be onto soft foods. I am getting real tired of blended Soup and drinking yogurt!

Hi all,
One week post op! Whoo hoo, I’ve been feeling pretty good. I’m just concerned I’m not getting enough Protein in. I’ve been adding protein to my yogurt and pudding to make sure. Other than that, I’m sooo ready for real food! Lol

Hi all. I had my surgery on the 9th. I’ve been doing pretty good, no nausea and no issues with getting in my liquids. I only spent one night in the hospital which was nice since my hubby couldn’t spend the night due to current restrictions. Like others posted, I miss food. Especially salads. I went back to work yesterday since I was feeling so good but it ended up wearing me out. Can’t wait to be cleared for other food options bc I’m sick of broth and Jello. I don’t love Protein Shakes so I add the Protein to my Water and broth. Down over 11 lbs from surgery day weight so I’m happy with those results so far.

Hi everyone. I am having bypass 6/29 if all goes well with my preop labs. My PCP is a tough cookie. I think it will go well.
