Any October 2021 Surgeries?



Recommended Posts

14 days post surgery - got my sleeve at 8:30 am on Oct 20th. I've followed the program perfectly - easy, since I have little interest in food - and been able to get in 60 grams of Proteins every day and 64 ounces of Water every day, although it was not easy the first week. First week was rough - felt bad physically, pain from surgery and from drinking/eating, fearing loss of food enjoyment as a thing in my life. Days 7-10 I started to gradually feel better. By this last Monday, Day 12, I guess, I felt totally normal, back to myself. Although I don't crave it, I find drinking a tasty broth or eating a sugar free Jello or pudding pleasant. So much better. I averaged 300-350 calories the first week and 500-600 calories the second week. Down 12 lbs since surgery date, total of 22 lbs since pre op diet, and 40 pounds since I started the bariatric program in July. Sometimes it feels a little unreal, and I'm startled I undertook something that is going to change my life so profoundly, but I'm looking forward to a future with improved mobility and health (I hope) or at least proud I have done all I can to move towards that goal.

I’m on day 5 and I just want some real food! Like a salad or a piece of cheese.

Hi there,

Aww I’m so sorry you are going through this.

I know after my surgery my blood pressure went up a bit for 2 days and I was told it was the effects of the Anaesthetic but my pulse was too low.
we all react differently to it.
I really hope you get sorted and the heart rate decreases.
you will get better with each day it is a day closer to the new you! 
stay strong lady!
Gas pains are normal and suck but they will get better. I’m 3 weeks post op tomorrow and things have improved for me so much.
Mira hard to start but worth it in the end.
hang in there. 

I meant stay strong lovely guy!

I'm 4 weeks after my bypass.

Mine stalled last week but back on track I'm losing around a kilo/2.2 pounds a week.

I was so obsessed with it I put in my head as long as I lose or stay the same I'm doing fine. Body is learning.

Good luck

Xxx

I'm 3 weeks out from gastric bypass surgery. Weight loss has stalled.

I’m nearly 4 weeks on Monday out since the gastric sleeve, I spoke with my Bariatric nurse yesterday she said it’s very common around this time to stall and she explained when you were on a normal diet that you get stalls and don’t lose every week.
but it will start coming off again.
I haven’t lost anything in over a week but I also have my period and I normally put Water weight on while I’m on it and so next week I’m probably going to start losing,

fingers crossed, so don’t worry about the stalls, they happen and it’s just your body trying to catch up with the little amounts of food and getting over the stress of the op.

I’m two weeks from sleeve to Bypass and I have only lost 4lbs since surgery. My doc said I need to eat more calories and hit my Protein. I just don’t have a desire for Soups, hate milk so protein drinks I just can’t stomach anymore and everything so sweet. I been only getting 200 cals or less. I have one more week before I get to chew on food lol.

Has anyone else had an unquenchable thirst? No matter what I drink or how much I am always dry mouth. Only thing that helps is popsicles.

Hi, I had my sleeve on October 27th. Any help with the cravings is greatly welcomed. I'm only 8 days post op and am dreaming of what I'll have for my puree stage. Not at all hungry, just miss actually eating?! Oh and the best part is I've already lost 13lb 🙂

Had my surgery also on the 27th. Lost 16 pounds the first week. Doing so good doc already moved me onto the puree stage after 1 week. I'm slowly figuring out what I like pureed. BUT the cravings good lord. I just want a slice of pizza, what if I pureed it? LOL. But also, NOT HUNGRY AT ALL!!

Not going to lie. Craving were so bad I literally would chew something I couldn't have and spit it out. I just wanted the taste so bad!

Homemade sauces(apple and pear) with Stevia added. YUMMY!! Made a version of chicken salad with light mayo, lactaid cottage cheese, pepper, salt, garlic powder and celery powder. YUMM!! Made Pureed cauliflower that tastes better than mashed potatoes and pureed Brussel sprouts to get the Fiber. Just experiment but stay away from spicy foods and very acidic foods.

      Hey everyone!  It has been a while since I was on here.  I had a lap-band placed in 2014 but now I would like it revised to a gastric sleeve.  There are no drs here in Tallahassee (Florida) that do that and I need to go the self-pay route (my insurance will not cover it!)  Any recommendations on nearby doctors that do self-pay revision surgeries?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
