Hello All!

I had VSG on 2/4 and started full liquids today (with cottage cheese and pudding!? 😊 is that really a liquid?)
I was so nervous on surgery day and slept the whole day and almost all the next too. I’m thinking it was self preservation! I also had a hiatal hernia fixed. I’m feeling ok...I still really miss food. I was told most people don’t feel hungry afterwards, but I do...anyone else?

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.

My surgery is this coming Wednesday, February 10th. SO HUNGRY on my liquid diet!!!

Its a mental thing you want texture and the oral fixation. You have to remember you've been eating for years its a habit. I blend up veggies and mix with a non flavored Protein this way I get some texture with my protein. It gets easier.

The first week I was alittle hungry but then it got worse second week as I grew bored of chocolate Protein Shakes. I tried a bit of pureed tuna few days early for one meal a day. Nothing hurt, bathroom is ok. It was just a little bit. I'm not advocating ignoring doctors orders but I couldn't take it anymore. Better pureed tuna than the soft pretzels my wife had out for superbowl.
