Had my VSG on wednesday morning en was able to leave the next morning. Everything went well, although I'm having some nausea and gas pains. Hopefully that will go away soon. Trying to get my fluids in, but it's a lot harder than expected.

Also haven't eaten anything yet. When was the first time you ate something? They told me fluids are more important, so I'm focussing on that now. Might try some broth or Protein Water tomorrow. The idea of a sweet Protein Shake alone makes me nauseas right now.

Are you allowed caffeine? If so Amazon, Walmart and costco (I just heard they are on sale this month there on another thread) have Premier Protein shakes and the caffe latte was the first shake I liked post surgery. Before I found that I did their clear Protein Drinks. It’s fruit punch but somehow not nearly as sweet as many of the shakes. Lots of brands make the clear Protein if you don’t like fruit punch. Hope this helps.

I know everyone’s Bariatric surgeon’s practice is different. I was able to eat eggs and baked fish two days after surgery. I couldn’t really stomach to much at first maybe 1 to 2 ounces. I was definitely a bit nervous but my surgeon wanted me to start semi soft solids ASAP for Protein in take along with the shakes. I need to get 90 grams daily. I am almost 3 weeks out and can eat about 3 ounces a serving. I can’t even finish a whole egg. lol.

Day 3 I could eat creamed Soups, sf pudding, yogurt. Day 15 I started soft/purée foods. eggs, tuna, avocado, mashed veggies and purée meats. I don’t get any more solid foods til the 5th week. As for the gas walk walk walk the more I walked the better I felt. I also used gas x

I’m eating exactly the same way! Day 14 I started eggs and puréed meats..it’s only been 2 days with that but it’s going really good so I’m gonna add more food and then same for me solid food on week 5! How are you feeling?

I am happy you feel that you don’t feel like you had surgery. That makes me feel at ease! I was scheduled for August 12th, and They called and canceled the day before after my preop labs due to the rise in Covid cases and lack of beds. They are now working on rescheduling my surgery.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
