Had my bypass on 6/09. Recovery for me was better than expected pain wise. Only thing that happened was I had a really bad allergic reaction to the skin glue they used to close the incisions. I am on my 2nd round of steroids. Hopefully this will work it’s magic, my belly looks like a welted lobster, red and itchy. I am on purées now and in about a week can move on to soft/mushy foods. I go back to work on Monday, so can’t wait, I have been going stir crazy at home. Hope everyone has a great day.

I'm 5 days post surgery and today I managed to get 3 of my tablets down - I did discover that I shouldn't have them just before a meal, I only managed 70mL of Protein Shake after 3 tablets(vit D, probiotic and multivitamin). I am drinking about 1.5L of Water in addition to my meals and I know I need to focus on getting more meal volume in. Who else gets bored of drinking their soup/protein shake before they are finished or full - I just enjoy drinking water more haha.

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 had surgery on the 24th. I have had no problems with Fluid intake. Had urinary retention and terrible gas pains for the first 24 hours.

My bypass is tommorow!! Whoohoo!! Finally!! After Covid it was pushed back! I’m ready to get this done. I hear people saying they had to do a liquid pre op diet. I didn’t. I was on a 1000 calorie diet!

Good luck with your surgery today. Mine is today too after looong 6 months. Thats great 1000 cal instead of liquid diet you can't beat that . Sending positive vibes.

I joined the lover's bench in the 25th. Havent had much fluids and teying to consume Protein Shakes. They are just too darn sweet now. I've noticed that I weigh the same amount of weight as I did when I did on the of my surgery even with me not consuming much fluids. Whelp! I am determined to let this tool work for me.

I can’t seem to balance my sips with good timing. And after a few sips I feel like I need to walk and burp. I could literally burp after every sip. I hope this won’t last forever.
