A little jealous as I can’t have milk at all (according to my doctor’s diet). Might add it back after the eight week mark, but nothing till hen

I have been having the same issue. This week I found Protein2O. It is flavored water with 20g of Protein. It has been a lifesaver. Both plant and regular Protein Shakes made me sick and nauseous. This as a substitute has been great.

Crackers?? The first two weeks my doctor said nothing like absolutely nothing except Protein Drinks and clean liquids he stated if you eat anything in the first two weeks you could die he was firm on that!!

I hear you load and clear but also if I throw up I can bleed as well I only did it twice I was to the point of either that or 🤮 so I took my chance. But believe me I am being careful.

I'm on day 2 and just home from the hospital. My stomach's painful and lots of gas - they've sent me home with a baby colic medicine which has given my family a laugh! I'm just trying to walk to get rid of this horrible gas. It's so good to hear of everyone's progress and tips x

Yes the gas is very painful I was able to take up to 4 gas X A day and walking is a must as you already know hang in there! Drink lots of Water like my nurse said water was more important than Protein the first few days so you don’t dehydrate.

Hi, I hope everyone is doing ok out there...

After a shaky psychology assessment , its been reconfirmed for the 31st (gastric bypass) provided I find counselling post op.

Counselling is expensive privately but we'll see when I cross that bridge.

My pre op diet is going ok ish ....i am just eating eggs all day for 2 weeks. I really sick of eggs lol.

It's surprising how different the pre-op and post-op diets are from one doctor to another.

My obligatory counselling session was very expensive - they've recommended I have more but I don't have to thankfully. I didn't find it very helpful.

My pre-op diet was 3 meals and 2 Snacks totalling 800-1000 calories and included what I thought was a lot of carbs. I cut the carbs right down because I was struggling to keep to the calorie limit when I included them. It almost seemed as if the dietitian hadn't road-tested the diet. I had to do it for nearly 3 weeks because I have fatty liver. But I did lose 16lbs on it so that was good!

All those drinks are too sweet for me. I’m going to have to make my own shakes.

I’m 10 days out and I can’t stand the taste! I’m drinking the Protein cappuccinos to replace those shakes. Been staying with my mom, so when I get home, I’ll be making my own.

To my surprise, I still have energy. I’ve lost over 20lbs since surgery and I figured I’d be hallucinating by now... lol!

Yeah I dont want to have more counselling sessions with the one I saw as it was £250 for an hour. If I have to do it I will find the cheapest person I can find lol.

Also glad to hear youre post op! Are you taking other OTC stuff for the gas? I am gonna buy pepto bismal chewables maybe.

I haven't taken anything else for the gas yet other than the colic med the hospital gave me. I've been walking a lot but still have gas so tomorrow I think I'll get some OTC stuff for it. The chewables sound good.
