Update on Surgery I had on July 19th.Not going to lie I was in so much gas pain and anything I drank burned going down..Was mostly on Morphine and anti nauseous medication ohh and sleeping.. Second day was easier. Was walking around, drinking more fluids and releasing the gas..I'm really thirsty but ill take it day by day. I was told my the team of doctors that it's best to have Decaf tea, Water and brooth until I slowly bring back the shakes.

Just take it easy, had mine on 6 July and it took tell today to get on foods. Thirsty is an understatement! Drink and yes after surgery it did burn going down

Right now my hubby and kids (I have older kids) are taking care of their own meals until I am cleared to eat a regular diet. I am nervous about when I will need to start cooking family meals again. Anyone have any tips on cooking for a family and yourself?

Hi Bluebonnet

i have actually been cooking my partner and sons dinners for the past 3 days, I find it strangely therapeutic, because although it looks and smells amazing and I would love to eat it, because I’m not hungry it’s not bothering me as much.
If am feeling too tired to cook they will take over.
🙂

Totally feel you! I was so thirsty for days! Especially as I couldn’t hold anything for down for two days and just vomited!
Now for some reason I can no longer drink just Water, it doesn’t stay down. I need to drink juice, or ice tea. But I’m managing about 1000ml of water a day at the moment. The struggle is with Protein Shakes and Soups, as I get full so quickly.
it really does get easier though as the days go on I promise. 👍🏻❤️

Phase: 1 week post op as of yesterday! Recovering well so Dr said I could move on to soft foods 😊
Highest known weight: 218
Starting weight: 214
Current Weight: 193.2
Inch loss: I’m actually waiting for a new tape measurer because somehow the current one is telling me I gained more than when I was 218. Makes no sense .
NSV: It’s only been a week so I haven’t noticed much yet. I will say on FaceTime calls and photos my face looks much slimmer and family has asked if I’m losing weight cause I look slimmer.

Good luck Everyone!!

Thanks for asking this, as I am also worried about when I have to make food for my family & possibly something different for me. I would love to hear what others have done or what they plan on trying.

To get through the first 2 weeks after my surgery, I started cooking double size dinners & put half in freezer for my family to eat later. I think I may continue to do this when I cook, to cut down on some cooking time.

During the soft food stage, I will try to use the crock pot & instant pot to make meats (& veggies) cooked in broth, like stews, etc. That way we can all eat it.

When my family is having Pasta with meat sauce, I will try to use turkey instead of beef for all of us, and make spiral zucchini for me.

Glad to hear I’m not the only one. I have been making my husband and daughter dinner every night and find it easy to do. Although I want to eat it it helps me learn to control my eating. My husband has offered to make them dinner so I don’t have to cook but I want them to have healthy meals and not just hotdogs and chicken strips (which I just tossed out) lol.

      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
