Hi everyone! I am scheduled for my sleeve gastrectomy on Nov.11th. I was told I only need to do 3 days of pre-op clears diet. So I was relieved I don't have to do it as long. I've got like Bone Broth, sugar free Jello, sugar free flavors to add to Water. Any ideas for other things to drink?1018201352a.jpg

I had my rny on the 4th. How are you doing?
I'm doing better than I thought I would. Spent 2 days in the hospital. But no nausea or throwing up. So I guess that's a win. The gas pains have subsided and I'm a little sore. How are you doing?

Glad you're doing relatively well! Like you, I'm doing better than I thought I might. No vomiting and I'm guessing the pain in my abdomen is gas, although I was told gas often settles around the shoulders. Trying to walk, walk, walk. I was the one bugging Nurses & Aides to walk. 😁 The staff was great and there were 3 fabulous Nursing students who helped me immensely.

I was able to come home from the hospital yesterday. The first day I was in horrible pain that was made worse by the fact that I started my period on surgery day and I tend to have bad periods. But after that first day, things improved a lot. I’m home after 2 nights and almost 1 additional day in the hospital, and I’m still pretty weak. But it’s nice not to be hungry.

I am having my surgery with dr illan on Nov 6! I’m so excited and also a bit nervous.

Best of luck to you! I had my bypass surgery yesterday. Everything went well. I am drinking clear fluids today with no issues. I was very nervous leading up to this procedure and am relieved it is over and went so well. I have been walking quite a bit today and get to go home tomorrow morning.

When I had my band, band revision, and eventual band removal I remember the pain in my shoulder. So not looking forward to that again 🥺

Well shoot! Home one day & back in hospital 3:30 this morning. My port was bleeding heavily & we couldn't stop it. Nurses & a Dr. said it happens infrequently. What fun! Hope to be out tomorrow. Hopefully won't start again!

Sorry that happened but why do you have a port? My uncle had one for chemo.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!
