Hi! Just coming back for an update! I had my surgery on 2/8. I feel like I’m doing pretty good getting up and walking and sipping as much as I can! I’m anxious for the incision pain to pass! Definitely a struggle moving around!

Hi Everybody! I'm new here my bypass is scheduled for February 22nd and I couldn't be more excited! 12 years ago I gave myself a birthday present and quit smoking it's time for another "me birthday present" and this is it! I've been on my 2 week pre-op liquid diet for 5 days now and I'm down 7 lbs and strange enough losing that amount already my shoes are more loose, my face is thinner and I'm starting to feel better. My stomach growls sometimes but I've heard a lot of times that's more of a thirst cry than a hunger cry so I get the Water going and it usually helps. Don't get me wrong pizza sounds good too LOL but I'm so looking forward to feeling better and that beats pizza any day! 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!!!!

@ironman -aspartame isnt bothering me. Protein2o makes me nauseous, Protein Shakes make me nauseous, and Jello makes me nauseous. I do have a lot of like acid reflux but my NUT said it's because my brain doesnt know my stomach isnt the same size and that it's over producing acid.

Sorry I Misread that. Did the acid calm down yet. Best of luck.

My surgery date was March 12, 2019. Coming up on my 2 year anniversary!! Doing and feeling great. Best decision I ever made.

Thanks for the inspiration! I just finished my postop liquid diet and am down 12 lbs. Been on the pureed diet a few days and it is oddly great to be able to taste chicken and tuna in this baby food texture. The two weeks post op diet was not terribly long but it did not fly by either. I stuck to the diet and things are working out well. Just need to up my Water to help the BM.

Betterment 2021, welcome. I did not have any pain in my stomach after changing the diet, but I did have quite a bit of noises gurgle and the big D. I lost 15 on the preop diet which was a very nice surprise. It definitely put me in a good mood and more excited for the surgery.

Yes, it did. But not on it's own. My dr has me on a pill twice a day that helps with the spasms and helps with the acid reflux. If I miss a dose, I feel it for sure. So I am taking them right on time. The biggest issue my dr and NUT have is that I havent had a bowel movement since surgery, which was 11 days ago. So they've ordered prune juice and that's not doing anything. I just don't see how I'm supposed to have bowel movements if I'm not eating food?

I like to cook, I've been driving my family crazy trying to feed them what I can't eat. tuna I add vegan Mayonnaise garlic powder onion powder. I like that simple. chicken I add more, I sautéed onions and peppers taco seasoning enchilada sauce. And threw it in the blender. It didn't blend at first so I added some chicken broth. I've also threw in advocado and blackbeans and chicken broth with some seasoning. That was good. I really feel as long as your not having other issues you can take almost anything your family is having and throw it in the blender. Obviously following the guidelines from the Dr. Seaoning is critical salt pepper. I'm going to try some chicken and Tomato sauce with italian seaoning tonight, and maybe some peas or spinach. I could talk food and recipes all day.

Wow those are great ideas! I asked my NUT for suggestions on the pureed meat and she said "why eat something that looks like cat food when you can drink your Protein? " And I thought well okay. So I've been living off of v8 with some lime and salt. Scrambled with yogurt and mozzarella. And triple zero greek yogurt. I think I'm going to try the pureed tuna/chicken today. I was told I could have Peanut Butter. I attempted a baby spoon of smooth creamy peanut butter mixed with yogurt and instantly I felt blockage, so that was a no-go for me. I tried checking pinterest for recipes and all that comes up are soft diets and I wont start soft stage till March.
