I am 1 week post op today and I can say im down almost 10 pounds. I am drinking the different Protein premium drinks, sugar free Gatorade and Water. Trust me when I say its a struggle at times getting 64 oz in if I dont start drinking by 6am. But what I hate so far is this nauseous feeling. Also I hate these muxed berry chewable vitamins by Bariatric Advantage. They are nasty as hell and makes me want to puke. The wild cherry chewable calcium citrate Vitamins not too bad. I call myself getting bariatric specific so i want have to take alot of pills. Im thinking now I probably have should went with the flintstone vitamins.

It will get better. Multi Vitamins can make some people nauseous - they did me. Plus your tastebuds are pretty screwy over the first couple of months so lots of things will taste off & or disgusting. It can take a bit of trial & error to find things that you can tolerate. Again it does get better.

My surgeon said it could be challenging to reach Fluid & Protein goals to begin but as long as I was making an effort & was close to goal he was happy. Don’t forget all your shakes add to your fluid goal too.

Congrats on your surgery.

Yea I was told that the Protein Drinks wasnt included in the fluid goal. But if so that would really help a girl out. Lol

My doctors told me that the shakes were not part of the Fluid intake also. But after 6 months it does count. I am almost 9 months out now. I still drink 1/2 gal of Water a day.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
