February 2021 bypassers?



Recommended Posts



One thing I noticed today was some pain in the upper right side of my belly. Has anyone else experienced this? This may be a dumb question but I'm going to put it out there, could it be liver shrinkage causing that? Best wishes to everyone, stay strong you can do this!!!!

I had exactly the same pain.... Never knew why.... After some massage it reduced. I had my bypass on February 8th and I'm feeling awesome!

Oh wow I had the same exact pain. I wrote it off as gas and took a nap.

Hey Gang

sorry I haven't checked in lately, I'm 6 days post-op. I am so tired of this darn liquid diet. So far everything has been good for me, my stomach hurts but nothing major.

Hi all, just popping in to remind myself and others to take some before pics!

Also if you haven't already:

Get your Vitamins

Your Clear Liquids

Your Protein powders

Walking shoes

An app to time your eating and drinking (I just got baritastic)

And most important of all...

GET YOUR MIND RIGHT!

Hello everyone, I had my surgery 1/28. So today I started my soft food phase, eggs for Breakfast, turkey slices for lunch with apple sauce. dinner was some chicken strifry. It was great to eat again and funny to be full after 8 or 10 bites. Just reminding everyone that the restricted diets do end and things return to slightly normal. The end result is worth it to be down so much weight. Good luck on everyone's upcoming surgeries.

Best of luck to everyone! I am actually having VSG, didn't realize I posted to a bypass thread until just now. Regardless, I'm glad to know my fellow WLS week peeps. We got this!

Hi everybody. I’m late and also new. I had my surgery 2/8. Im 24 lbs down and I’m miserable. Already was a picky eater before and now it’s worse. I can’t stand anything diet and all crystal light and fair life I was drinking right before surgery is not doing it for me anymore. All I can drink is Soup from the Jamaican restaurant and smashed salmon at this point and I’m tired of that too! I feel like I’m going crazy.

Tomorrow I have appointment with the dietitian, I think I go to oatmeal consistency food.I can’t wait to eat real food.I’m happy with the results so far

Had my gastric bypass this morning. My surgeon said they found something very abnormal while in surgery. I am scheduled for an EGD first thing in the morning. All he said was something very abnormal. Wont tell my family, or myself any details. I’m definitely freaking out. I hope it isn’t bad news.

Absolutely surreal to be posting this as I have read so many of these threads! I didn’t think the day would ever come! Excited and petrified. My date is 2/22/21!!

Any February 2021 bypassers out there? I would love to connect and share prep plans and how things go after surgery.

Hi! I'm Holly. 48 year old from Michigan. I had surgery Feb 10th...self pay. BMI was 37 but no comorbidities so insurance was a no. I had lap band removed in Nov. 2019. It was kinda hell...that band...after another pregnancy and a few years. Worked at 1st but always so painful that darn vand.

So...this was the surgery I should've chosen. Let's see you are 3 days out so a bit sore and maybe tough getting your Protein and liquids in right now? Took me 3 to 4 days to get there. I'm 2 weeks out and followed my preop liquids and post op liquids very strictly. OBEY THE 1 PILL PER 20 MINUTES. ABOUT 4 DAYS OUT, I took 3 gel caps too close together and had pain so bad I thought I might have caused a leak. That night sucked but it got better hour after hour thank God so I didn't go in. You do not want that pain or fear so be good girl so you don't hurt that tiny tummy or have a terribly scary night like I did! I lost 16 pre surgery by dieting 2 weeks very clean before liquid diet 2 weeks.

I've lost 12 since surgery so I'm at 28 pounds down.

Best advice besides *follow those rules 100%" is rest a lot. The 1st week is exhausting. I kept telling my husband, "I literally feel like I am evaporating."

Feel free to send me any questions.

Also... please see my reply under "March surgeries heading" I think Orgain collagen peptide Protein Powder is very healing and nourishing to include in your liquids besides your Protein Drinks (those are best to be whey protein). But I did the unflavored ORGAIN collagen protein to make my pudding, Gelatin, added to broth, cream Soups, etc.
