Just had surgery on 12/15



Recommended Posts

Hi,
Just had my surgery in 12/15 and I feel really gassy plus my body decided to send me my  monthly gift too, aka my period. Any suggestions on food intake. I’m allowed to eat mushy foods but I’m scared now. Today I drank half a bottle of Protein Shake with no problems. Also drank  Protein water and regular Water too in 30ml (1oz) cups. I don’t want to over do it. How will I know it’s too much? At the hospital I threw up a lot because of the meds and the contrast. I don’t want to throw up at home too.

I threw up a lot at the hospital too... honestly thought I was overdosing on morphine, but they kept giving to me regardless of me telling them the pain was manageable. Honestly felt like a drug addict lol, I would wake up from a sleep drooling and then throw up. And then do it all over again. I would suggest you start writing everything down, how much you intake and how you felt after. Maybe after a week or two you will notice a pattern.

Just started. Now I’m 6 days post and feeling better but my intake hasn’t improved much either. I can drink a whole bottle of Water 12-14 oz and or Gatorade, but not a bottle of Protein Shake.
Check up is soon.
Im telling it all.

Congratulations! I had my procedure done on 12/17 and my body sent my my period in full force even though I haven’t had a proper period in three years. Crappy that we had to deal with that on top of recovering from the surgery. I too am gassy... and it’s a gas from hell, let me tell you, Uffda, so stinky.
my surgeon had me on purées before I left the hospital (I had to be at the hospital and extra day because I couldn’t get my nausea to go away).

I made a ricotta bake that is like lasagne, I added a photo of the Pinterest recipe.

Girl, I started the morning of my surgery on 11/30. I was like WTF. It was not a fun 48 hours. Nurses don't get paid enough [emoji23]

I had my surgery not too long ago either, while I was ambitious to get all liquid, Protein, etc in, I have to admit I am sort of failing too. I consume a water bottle a day, some of my shake and maybe some broth. That is all I am consuming right now

If my doctor would let me eat these things this week, I would be so much happier.

I'm telling you!! Tomorrow is a week post op, I can't even start a full liquid diet until day 10, and won't start soft foods until day 15. [emoji30] It's always so interesting to see how different doctors have different plans... I'm not physically hungry, but mentally I feel like I'm struggling with all the liquids..

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
