November 2020 sleevers



Recommended Posts

Hello fellow November’s. I would like to have some accountability partners who are in approximately the same phase of the WLS journey as me. So far this post has kinda served that purpose but going forward we will all probably be posting in the thread of interest on this forum versus this post. I started a Face book group, Bari Buddies, if anyone would be interested in comparing notes, Q&A, moral support, and accountability during our journeys. This is the link if you would be interested. https://www.facebook.com/groups/411774243154346/?ref=share

Started pre-op diet yesterday. Getting excited

That’s a great idea! I just hit the join button. 😊 I’ve been scouring for post-surgery liquid diet recipes. Surgery on the 10th so getting to crunch time! 😬

I just ordered a food mill from Amazon for the soft foods stage (ie thanksgiving). I can mince a little turkey, gravy and sweet potatoes for myself. Maybe not the sweet potatoes because they will be loaded in butter but turkey for sure.

Hey, all... Had surgery on the 2nd. Still in the hospital and will be here again tonight. Had really, REALLY bad gas pains, and I have an extremely high pain tolerance (I gave birth twice at home with nearly 10lb babies). It was so bad last night they actually gave me a CT scan (it was clear). So...a couple hurdles. Ah well. Also drinking makes me hiccup, no matter how slow I sip. Ugh...

So sorry to hear that you are still in the hospital. I stayed two nights. First day was miserable. Also a lot of pain from one of the insitions. Also did a CT scan to check if it was a hernia because I was so swollen. But it was just swelling.

First night at home was hard, had to sit up sleeping. So not much sleep for me. So much gas in my system that would not come out, giving me heartburn.

Well it can only get better from here. Hope next week will be better. Can't wait to eat mashed food instead of liquids.

Hey fellow November sleevers! Anyone else not be required to start the liquid diet until a week before surgery? Mine starts tomorrow. Surgery is 11/11. I’m seeing a different consensus in this app.

I just saw this. My surgery is on the 14th. Don’t have to start until a week before. 2 Protein Shakes per day plus lean Protein and veggies for dinner.

I'm glad you guys are doing well... I'm having a really rough go of it. The nausea is kicking my ass all over the place. On day 1 (the day after surgery) I am supposed to have 30 ml (1oz) every hour. I'm lucky if I get 10ml and even then I end up dry heaving all over the place. The lady I'm sharing the room with said I've gotten her gagging a few times. I'm a terrible neighbour. The nurse says it's ok... It's not abnormal so it should wear off. Fingers crossed for that sooner rather than later.

Same here :( I had surgery Tuesday and yesterday was truly awful. So much pain and nausea. They offered to keep me another night but I figured I could at least go home and be miserable in my own bed. I can say now that it’s Thursday I’m not feeling near as bad as I did yesterday.

I will probably go home this evening. My pain is pretty much gone other than the largest (the one they pulled the stomach through) incision, and that's not that bad. I didn't take the last iv pain med because I didn't think I needed it. I gotta say, it's kinda cool to not be hungry at all. I've seen commercials on tv (which I don't tend to watch, but what else is there in here? LOL) that would normally have me salivating, but I'm like "meh..."

I'm getting better at getting Protein Shakes down (I can do 2oz in half an hour now, go me!) and I've discovered that Water has to be ice cold (or even ice chips) to avoid hiccups.

The hospital is 60 miles round trip from my house, so I haven't had visitors (I'm pretty okay with that with how horrible I was Tuesday), but I'm looking forward to seeing my family now.

I agree—that large incision where the pulled the stomach out is the most sore! I learned my stomach does not like crystal light or any other artificial sweetener. Water and Protein it is 😬
