Gastric Bypass newbie



Recommended Posts

I had gastric bypass this Wednesday. It’s been interesting few days. Can anyone help describe how you know when you are full? also, has anyone felt more light headed A LOT when walking? I look forward to corresponding with others on this any other topics.

When you are only taking in liquids or very, very soft food, you may not feel full. As you move to more solid foods, the feeling will likely kick in. Even then you may not feel exactly full. Keep to your plan for best results.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.

      Just stumbled across this and had to think of BP immediately. I know this is something people simply don't want to think, let alone talk about but it's one of the reasons I'm limiting time on here.
