Any October 2021 Surgeries?



Recommended Posts

It's interesting to see everyone's differences in post op diet . I'm craving lo mein but still haven't eaten anything . I need more than clear liquids / Protein Shakes though and seem to be tolerating them pretty well . Doctor said if I still find myself hungry after the shakes I can try some yogurt . Was thinking of grabbing some yogurt and maybe some cream of wheat if I don't make it too thick .

I had surgery on Oct 12. Doing well so far as I’m now on Soft Foods. Does anyone else get a gross after taste when drinking cold Water? The doctor said its not abnormal but i was hoping someone knows when/if that will stop.

I totally understand this thread! I’m 4 weeks post op and that first week it was so painful to drink. Like fluids would hit my stomach and my abdomen would seize and scream in pain. I actually ended up getting readmitted a week later because of dehydration. I just couldn’t get enough in and take the pain.

That sounds terrible. I hope you’re able to drink now without pain.

I'm drinking these BariWise high Protein cream of mushroom and cream of chicken Soup and really like them. They aren't any thicker than the Protein Shakes. I've also gotten FairLife protein shakes and they're much lighter. more like drinking 2% milk. I still haven't lost any weight and I desperately need to just quit getting on the stupid scale.

Thanks I didn’t know about the BariWise Soups. I think I lost weight as my surgeon cleared me to keep taking my Celebrex. II have rheumatoid arthritis and the week before surgery without my Enbrel and Celebrex was painful. If not for my Celebrex I wouldn’t be able to do the daily 2 miles on the treadmill. I know the Celebrex has reduced my stomach inflammation as my restriction got more intense the day I didn’t take it.

I'm doing alright. I'm really struggling to stay hydrated. For the first few days, the smallest amount of Water would make me so sick. Now, not so much nausea. Just hard to get much down! How about you? How are you feeling?

I am doing much better than first two days. Sorry about your nausea . I had it once chewed Zoltan and was fine. But I also have figured out some of my sleeves preferences. First off I had to stop using the Vital collagen Protein powder. That was giving me sever diarrhea and stomach upset. I figured out to take a deep breath put Water in mouth let air out, hold breath swallow liquid sitting in mouth, I find I can drink more this way as I must naturally swallow a lot of air when I drink. I also figured out hot or warm liquids nay, NOTHING COLD.
I also find the daily 2 mile walk on treadmill really helped also. Today I am allowed puréed food but didn’t start I am kinda afraid.

I can’t drink cold anything. That causes a cramp. At least now I won’t have to worry about being tempted by Ben&Jerry :)

Hi surgery twin my gastric bypass was also Oct 11 21
How are u doing?
I had no pain or gases
I'm down 19 pounds

Sent from my SM-A526U using BariatricPal mobile app

His surgery twin,

im doing ok, each day is different, hormones seem to be all over the place as through fat loss Estrogen surges with fat loss.
befire surgery I lost 16lbs and now I’ve lost 16lbs since surgery.
I thought it would be faster but grateful all the same as wouldn’t be able to do it without.
I had the sleeve done.
I had gas pains and shoulder pain and I still suffer with right side stomach when I bend down etc

incisions ok though.
I find it not to bad getting soft food down.
I’ve started a week early with soft foods as Soups were going straight through me but I can’t manage more than about 4 tea spoons full.
even then it’s a struggle.
my main struggle is fluids getting the right amount in so I’ve brought Protein juice and it’s definitely helping.
how are you doing?

It’s so interesting to see how different all the post op diets are. I had the surgery two days ago and had Clear Liquids the day after and now on the liquid diet for two weeks. Yesterday I was starving! Today I am barely eating. Everything tastes super sweet and all my options look “yuck”. How often was everyone eating and drinking at this point?

I did a week clear liquid, a week full liquids with Protein, and now I'm finishing my week of soft foods and Proteins. Sweet anything is straight out. I find myself struggling on Protein Shakes and yogurt.

Hi

My care seems alot different to America. I live in Spain. I have a nutrition lady who for 1 month before gave me a full diet plan on what I liked then 3 days before it was Water and 3 Protein Shakes a day. Had bypass on 6th

For 2 days water only then a week of 2 shakes and Fluid. Then onto puree now on soft food.

I'm struggling with eating meat so sticking with vegetable based meals as that sits better with me

I am on 7-8 tiny meals a day.

Big love to all on our epic journeys

Xxx
