Is there a 3 week stall? I was wondering 😉

Yes as body was in shock after surgery so the loss was more but it will level out so I’ve been told and you’ll find the following week you will lose more to make up for it, if you know what I mean.

I havent tried chicken yet! Been a bit scared honestly! I hope it sits well with me, so far I havent had issues keeping any type of foods down.

hope everything keeps going smooth for you as well ! & I’m sure soon you’ll be able to eat scrambled eggs without any issues!
thank you! I don’t have much of a support system on my end, so if you need anything, don’t hesitate to message me! We got this🙆🏽‍♀️

I tried chicken at 2 weeks plus but dud not go well. Threw it all up felt awful I think it's called dumping

It scared the life out of me.

But Tried it at just over 3 weeks was fine really enjoyed it.

My nutrition lady said don't have anything dry always make sure it's moist it helps it slide down.

How often is everyone eating/drinking at this stage? I am such a structured person, I feel lost in this. I am 4 days post op.


I’m 5 days post op and having issues drinking and pooping (not to mention super gassy). I’m trying to go slow but I’m only at 12 oz Protein Shakes and @ 1 liter of Smartwater.  I’m supposed to be at 2 shakes and 48 oz.

I didn't. Did you have a canula or something that would have irritated your nasal passage?

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

I‘m curious to see if there are any more europeans on here. My nutritional plan is so so different from what I‘m reading. We were allowed to eat as per usual till about 36h pre op. Since 4 days post op we‘ve been allowed to eat as per usual again just Protein first and easily digestible food.

@Chappers how are you feeling with your bypass? I had a sleeve done but we got surgery around the same time :)

@Arancini I'm doing good. I was in hospital 5 days, had stomach drain removed after 10 days. It was key hole so I have 5 holes plus the drain one. The drain is still healing but nicely. The main work site is still bruised and tender but surgeon said I will feel swollen and pain for probably a few months. It feels like I've been punched and punched and punched but it's not as bad I thought it would be. I'm just over 3 weeks now and progressing from mush to more solid mush if you understand. I will be under the hospital for a year. But mine was done private and its a package which covers a year. I see surgeon again 18th. But see my nutrition lady and bloods doctor on Thursday where he will advise what supplements I require. I add Protein powder to food 3 times a day to keep my levels up and do B12 injections once a month.

How are you doing?

My hardest problems are in the mind. I was brought up yo have 3 meals a day

Breakfast lunch dinner

But now I'm on 7-8 tiny meals a day which I think is too much in my head but they are the portion similar to a very small yogurt. But to eat anymore makes me so ill.

But the advice my nutrition lady gives me is spot on (she has trained to do it I suppose)

Stay strong and positive

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
