1 week post gastric bypass



Recommended Posts

Finally starting to feel human again. It was such a struggle in the beginning. My colon does not like anesthesia. So much abdominal cramping and bloating! I was so upset thinking made the wrong decision. I watched a lot of YouTubes of other gastric bypass journeys and I never found one that mentioned the soreness and abdominal discomfort. So happy now that I'm feeling so much better now. I now know I did not make a mistake. Still struggling to reach my Water and Protein numbers on a daily basis. But I know I'm close. So glad I found this support group as it is difficult to go through this alone.

I had mine done 3 days ago. Like you, I'm having a hard time with bloating and abdominal discomfort. I can't get my shakes down still so mostly just Water and herbal teas. Glad you are starting to feel a bit more normal now and even better over the coming weeks!

I felt the same way! The first few days, all I could think about was what the heck did I do?! It gets better!!! I promise! Just keep pushing through! Try your best to get your Water and Protein in and if you can’t, well that’s fine. I didn’t either, and I posted about it and people said the same things to me. Just do the best you can and this too shall pass!

hope you start to feel better soon!
