Hi All. I've been MIA - recovering and learning how to eat again. LOL

My surgery (Lap Band removed and converted to GB) was 9-14. I spent one night in the hospital. I got to my room from recovery around 7 pm. I was still very groggy. I woke up about 10 PM and began walking the halls. I was determined to get up and walking. I went home 9-15, Tuesday, by noon. Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday were uneventful. It was just alot of me moving slow and sipping Protein and gatorade zero and Water. Friday, I woke up feeling amazing! I decided it was time to get all cleaned up and feeling human again. When I left the hospital on Tuesday, the nurse said if I didnt have a bowel movement in a couple of days, take some Milk of Magnesium, so I did on Thursday. I'm not going to go in to the whole sordid story but I did end up in the ER on Friday night for several hours for SEVERE constipation. Once that was cleared up, I've been good to go ever since. Sunday I was up cleaning house and walking 2 miles outside. I returned to work (desk job) on Monday, one week post-op. I had my followup with my surgeon on Tuesday, 9-22. He said everything looked great. He advised me to take Miralax daily to help with the bathroom issues and then he said I was released on Thursday (10 days post op) to have soft foods. Yesterday was Thursday and I was soooooo happy to be able to eat food! I managed to hit over 60 grams of protein yesterday without drinking one dang Protein Drink. It was heaven. I'm eating slow and chewing well. I'm still not hungry but just forcing myself to eat the small meals...5-6 a day suggested by my surgeon. I have lost 22 pounds since starting my pre-op liquid diet...10 since surgery.

I hope everyone is doing AMAZING!!!

All packed and ready for surgery tomorrow. Really anxious and nervous. I’ve had a lot of surgery but this is the first truly elective procedure I’ve ever had.

Good luck.

I had my 1st ever procedure 13 days ago.

Looking back now I wonder why I was ever nervous.

This has been the best choice I have ever made.

I cant believe I kept putting it off and off.

I had mine done i Saudi Arabia so some small language barriers but nothing to complain about.

You have got this. The rest of your life is now in front of you.

Just to let you know, I was 137kg before the procedure and now at 125kg.

I've started to wear clothes that I haven't had on for 7 years.

Stay positive and good luck for tomorrow again.

And a question for those who got sleeved recently does the liquid diet become easier post-op ?

So I’m now two days post op and home from hospital. The day of surgery was a challenge. I was only allowed ice chips immediately post op. Boy my stomach was rumbling. I then started fluids yesterday and drinking 1L was the requirement for my IV to be discontinued and to be allowed home. I managed to drink 1.5L so was allowed home this morning.

Hardest thing for me so far is the sipping. I’m a guzzler so using a medicine cup to get used to how much Fluid a ‘sip’ is.
