Hi good to know my surgery went well but I’m hungry. I did two weeks of liquids before surgery now two more weeks I’m hungry. But I’m having dumping not sure why. Nice to meet you

Thankfully I didn’t have to do the liquid diet pre-surgery. I had the sleeve on 4/5 and today was my first follow up post op and it was awesome. He stopped me a tad early from liquids now off to purée. I had dumping too from the broth, I tried the cream Soups and they worked great! I also started drinking my fluids room temperature and that too helped with the dumping. 6 days no dumping now - give it a try it may work for you. Oh and I lost 18lbs already. I’m so happy great start. Praying for you and hope you find a way to stop the dumping I know it’s awful.

We all have such different programs. For me, it's the following:

1 week of Clear Liquids 7 days total

2 weeks full liquids which allows me to add yogurt, cream Soups, and apples (with 30 mins gaps for water) 14 days total

3 weeks soft or what I guess you guys call purree (with 30 mins gaps for water) 21 days total

So, for each stage, it increases in duration (one week long, 2 weeks long, 3 weeks long)

Then at 6 weeks post surgery, full foods with certain requirements and at the size limits set and 30 mins before and after Water

I had my gastric bypass 4/8. I did it at a 30 birthday gift to myself. I want to start off my 30s feeling my age. So far doing well! I had one hiccup where I ended up back in the hospital because I was defecating blood but since then things have been going super well! I rarely feel hungry and am just eating because I know I have 2. Started puréed food today. Any ideas of good puréed foods?

The ricotta bake is a fan favorite on this site.

[mention=397835]rklingsmithjr[/mention] I bought iconic Protein Shakes and pirq Protein shakes from their siteS (20% off each when you join their mailing lists). I also got some collagen powder & Miralax from Amazon even though it pains me to support them. I’m cooking some homemade broth now! Picking up fresh veggies and eggs tomorrow, starting pre-op diet on Saturday
I got some vegan protein shakes! They're only 20 g of protein, but I'm going to try them. I ordered collagen too. Someone on here said Biotene spray? I'm not sure what that is or for what, so I need to look it up. I'm so excited for you! My date is the 28th. I cannot wait.

When you say 64oz of liquid, do you mean 64 oz of Water PLUS ounces of additional liquids like Protein Drinks, broth, etc. On top of the 64 oz of Water?

During my first week, my 64 oz included all liquids total. So, it was not 64 oz of water plus broth, shakes, etc.

Just asking for clarification.

Also, I on full liquids now. Not purree yet. I was told to stop when I receive any initial sign of restriction.

I am drinking 64 oz water (32 oz water bottle finished 2x) plus I’ve been juicing celery and cucumber almost daily so I can get veg in while on liquids. Also my Multivitamin is a liquid and tastes gross so I mix that with water.
plus Protein Drinks and broth

Anyone have a tender/sore throat just when swallowing? Seemed to not start until a few days after surgery. So, I didnt think it was the pain that some people feel in response to that thing that they put down our throat to measure for the sleeve.

Believe me, I thought about COVID, but I shook my head. I'm vaccinated and haven't been running the streets since surgery, hahahaha

I had a completely torn throat and busted lip coming out of surgery from the intubation. Around the third day, when I stopped pain meds, it was excruciating. My doc said gargling salt Water was slowed to help with healing.

Do a quick search on this site plus talk with your WLS team. Its helpful to know what dumping is before having surgery so you will know how to prevent it.

Don’t buy too many Protein Shakes ahead of time because your tastes may change. Also immediately after tastes are heightened so to me the Protein shakes were too sweet. I found the clear Protein Drinks to be easier to get down.

I didn't find this to be true. My taste is the same, I hate the Protein Water and protein drinks...the shakes are ok...just me talking here.
