I had my surgery on Monday the 19th with a hernia repair. The surgery was a little over two hours with the repair and scar tissue issue I had. Lots of gas pain first night in the hospital along with some vomitting. I spent one night in the hospital. I walked alot to ease up on the gas. Drink but small sips. Jello and Crystal Light never tasted better.
any question, lmk!

Good Luck!

Mine is on Wednesday 10/21. Pre-op diet has made me feel sick most of the time & made gerd feelings worse. I have fallen off of it a little a few times but I’ve lost almost 20lbs in 12 days. I’m scared my liver won’t be shrunk enough. Also, Tuesday I have to drink a bottle of magnesium citrate. Hopefully that won’t make me puke. I’m extremely nervous and can’t sleep. Stomach aches all the time. I’m constantly hungry. Questioning a lot right now. I do love this group and I thank you for sharing your stories.

Hope all went well!

I had a gastric bypass and hiatal hernia repair at the same time on October 12th. It’s been a rough week and a half. I struggled with gas pains at first. Had about 2 good days-days 5 & 6. Then have had persistent nausea since. My doctor diagnosed me with thrush and has called in some medicine for nausea and an antibiotic for thrush. Apparently you can get thrush as a surgery side effect. Praying this helps with the nausea.

Hi! Had my surgery on Monday. Stayed an extra night in the hospital due to nausea. Pain is ok. It’s hard to get comfortable at night and have some nasty shoulder pain when I burp. One thing I found that has been a life saver is Tylenol dissolve packs. They taste yummy and dissolve right on your tongue!

Where did you buy the Tylenol dissolve packs?

I found them at Target. I also saw them at Walgreeens.

Today is the final day of stage 2 liquids/protein shakes. I finally can have 2 full premier Proteins. Miso Soup broth also saved me I’d suggest that over chicken broth. sugar free popsicles for the win

I start stage 3A tomorrow. I’m excited to make some egg bites. This stage only last 10 days and then the stage I been waiting for starts nov 2 ! Looking forward to the infamous ricotta bake

Tomorrow! And I’m freaking out! The pre op cleanse is the worse. But it did take a lot of my focus away from the actual surgery. For a good 8 hrs!

Praying for a speedy recovery! Sorry you are going through the extra pain! I had the same surgery on the 12th.....it gets better but the pain in my shoulder won’t go away!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
