Happy to report that I feel much better today! Just a little pain at the central incision but Tylenol is handling it. No problem keeping anything down and I transitioned from Clear Liquids to full liquids today. I had some Tomato Soup with Protein Powder and it was amazingly delicious.

What Protein powder are you using? I like GENEPRO but they are late in the shipment and my soy protein isolate tastes really, really, funny. Glad you are doing well!

Isopure zero carb but I don't love it, there's still a bit of an unnatural flavor to it.

Uh ooo! I’ve been having breathing trouble since surgery last Thursday. I have asthma but because of concerns over possible blood clots I’m back at the hospital in ER. Because of the smaller stomach I can’t take steroids without an IV. This would all be ok but I waited all day for the doc to call me back. She didn’t call until 4, fought Boston traffic to get here, and the wait is real.

Update, no clots. The constant moving around did prevent it! Need new asthma plan because they gave me a shot intravenously of steroids. The weight loss program explained that steroids can harm your surgery healing, but of course asthma can kill, so there was a compromise of a lesser dose of steroids.

So the uptake is keep walking, it does prevent blood clots. And, advocate for yourself, I can finally take a full breath and slept a full 5 hours. Next, I will need to spend a significant amount of time with my pulmonologist when this has settled down. We are all worth spending time upon!

Had mine August 10. Feel pretty good, not a huge fan of the blended diet, but I’m reading on here it gets better. I miss straws, and diet Cokes (even though I’ve not had one in at least a month). I use to watch cooking channels on YouTube a lot but I’m discovering that is a trigger. Will have to find something else to fill my tv time.

I did make a mistake and have something w more sugar than I needed and let me tell ya.. my body screamed loudly!! I will NEVER do that again! Best non scale victory.. I CAN WEAR MY WEDDING RINGS AGAIN!! 💍😃 Good luck to everyone!

My surgery was scheduled for 8/16, then rescheduled for 8/23…today it got cancelled due to increase in Covid cases with no rescheduled date in sight. I’m so bummed, but wondering if this happened for a reason 🙈

I’m so sorry your having to deal with that. Mine was RNY was scheduled for the 11th, got pushed to the 12th because of covid but I got in and out and have been home resting. Hopefully they get you in soon.

      😫 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 .
