Luckily my doctor allowed me to do soft foods 3 days post op for two weeks. I’m on solids and can eat anything and gulp Water like a fish. But I’m hungry.

I done that tonight. 😊 My child left the crust from his pizza and ... I chewed it and spit it out lol. Thank god I'm not the only one 👍


I tried this yesterday and today. Yesterday I chewed up a chicken wing and was ok. Today I got greedy and tried it with a cinnamon crunch bagel. Now I’m super bloated and gassy.
It took some mind control for me to spit it out too. Muscle memory had me swallowing a couple of bites when I was distracted. So I’ll steer away from breads for an extended period. Learned my lesson real good.

Has anyone found that drinking Decaf coffee makes them bloated/gassy?

I'm not due to start pureed foods until Sunday, but couldn't face any more shakes. I had one scrambled egg yest (Wednesday) and today I'm having pureed veg with gravy. Anyone else started the puree stage a bit sooner, how are you getting on?

My doctor skips pureee and goes straight to sift foods. I started soft foods day five after surgery and I’m quite fine. Now three weeks out

I started puréed at the one week mark. So many doctors require different things. I followed my friends plan (i was allowed to start puréed on week 2 for me). I lost so much weight (not healthily) bc I couldn’t drink anything anymore I wanted to chew so I preferred not to eat and was starving. Nothing has felt bad so that’s good. I was on yogurt and stuff when I got home from hospital. My follow up is tomorrow so hopefully all is well.

listen to your body. If something feels like it’s not setting then remove it and try again at another time.

Has anyone experienced bad diarrhea postop with cramping bloated and even some red bright blood in the mucosa of colon???? I am starting to get a bit worried that I might have a leak no sure. I know diarrhea is not a common side effect or a symptom for it.

This is good to know. Thank you. I'm doing good with what I've eaten so far. So I think it's the right time for me

Hi everyone ! Just so happy bc I’m in ONEderland! Yay! I’m so grateful that I was approved for this surgery. I had posted my date was 10/19, since then I lost 31 lbs. No regrets, should have done this sooner! Only new challenge is learning to eat verrrry slowly since I started soft foods. Love this site, I’ve learned so much from you all! 😊

      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.
