5 week post op

Recommended Posts

I am beginning my fifth week postop and I’m starting to eat a little bit of solids I am a little concerned on what I can and what I should and should not eat. Especially now my wife has been drying for me to take her to dinner. Any suggestions? I do feel more hungry more often so I’m a little concerned

For Mexican food, I ordered shrimp fajitas and ate about 2 shrimp and some refried Beans. I ate the leftover shrimp for two more days! LOL

For sushi, I ordered the sashimi appetizer (9 pieces) and ate 6 pieces at first and 9 pieces now.

Of course, if you are not at the solid stage, I would suggest only refried beans and/or some sort of Soup.

Good luck!

My first meal out was also mexican food. I ate some chorizo and eggs and a few spoonfuls of refried Beans. Didn't touch the rice. I think that was about week four.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
