Sorry you’re having a rough time. Have you talked with your surgeon and nutritionist? If not you for sure should! I lost hair too, but now at nearly 2 years out it has grown back. If you need to use Protein Shakes to get to your daily Protein goals you should. I actually still have one every morning for Breakfast.

I agree, if you must go back to Protein Shakes. I have the premiere Protein caffe latte ever morning for Breakfast. It does have caffeine though not sure if that is okay on your plan.

An endoscopy will determine if you have a stricture or something else going on, you don't mention what has been tried so far, or tested? Or if you are on a PPI, or anti-nausea meds.

I hope you keep calling your docs and team.

Yes, it definitely sounds like it is time for the doctor to investigate what's going on. Hopefully it is an easy fix!

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
