Vision changes - I had gastric bypass on Thursday. I am doing OK with the pain and no hunger at all. I am near sighted and need glasses to see far away things. I can also read any thing close up with my glasses on. But ever since surgery, I have noticed that when reading or using my phone close up, it is blurry. I remove my glasses and it's clear, but distant items are blurry of course.

Has anyone experienced vision changes after surgery?

That is quite possible especially if you had sugar issues. I would wait at least 90 days as long as nothing major before going to an eye doctor for new glasses. If it seems to be a bigger issue definitely get that checked out. I know my moms glasses needs changed greatly after surgery

August 27th for me! And yes I’ve already started the liquid diet- I started it on the 10th as I have hepatic steatosis (fatty liver disease). Day 3 of the preop diet was the worst for me but doing ok now.

My surgery is 8/19. I’m currently on day 7 of my 14 day liquid diet. It has had its moments and yesterday I was super hungry and these shakes just weren’t cutting it so I listened to music and that helped.
I have cheated so many times on this diet and my surgery is the 21st I hope it goes well. I'm going to be strict from now on

Mine too! Just went yesterday to the start clinic for presurgery blood and urine testing. Still doesn't feel like this is really happening. I was originally suppose to have the surgery back in March but was put on hold due to covid. How are you feeling about the surgery? Best wishes to you hope all goes well.
