Heat pad, and hot baths helped me! Lots more walking than you think you need. I promise it gets better I’m day 14 post op and no longer in pain.

I am 15 days postop and is hurting like hell. Combo meds such as Diazepam and Oral Oxy are not working for me. I stomach just growls at me. I am able to keep food down is just hurts like hell. My surgeon is thinking of doing both a Upper GI series and a CT scan. I am starting to regret this. 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

I know the first two weeks are bad. Have you tried taking smaller bites and putting down your fork in between? It made the difference for me. My surgery was 10/25

Yes 🙌 setting a timer ⏱ for 3:30 after each bite. I feel much better today. Not sure but my pain went away like magic. All I have now is more of sore muscles in my abdomen section. Other that still learning the since last of being full. Thank you for sharing and your advice. How are you doing postop????

That’s awesome I’m so happy. I know thr first three weeks were rough. I progressed to soft/solids and I feel so much better, too!

Oct 19th was my day. My exp has been text book short of nausea and dumping. I cheated a few times by eating a solid too soon and after a few bites i was leaning over the toilet. I'm realizing enjoying food as I did before no longer exist. I guess that's the trade off. One thing that is bothersome and disgusting is the excessive amount of saliva i hve now which is sometimes foamy. Yuk!

6 weeks today. Surgery weight on Oct 20th was 213.2 so 20 lbs. I started at a relatively low height/weight and am 59. Plus I had a stall that lasted an entire 3 weeks! Except for the darn stall and the frustration/trepidation associated with it, I'm happy with my progress so far. I know some people lose far more, but I'm taking the middle road on diet (average 800 cal/day) and can't really exercise much due to arthritis.

My friend who had RNY said the trick was to wait two hours minimum before trying something sweet and only two bites max. That has worked for me so far.

Congratulations! My preop was 213. Day of surgery was 205 and I’m at 186.6 5 1/2 weeks out.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
