Post op clearance and First solid food in 5 weeks!



Recommended Posts

I Had my 2 week post op appointment today and got clearance for soft food phase! I had a cheese stick mid afternoon and then for dinner had a scrambled egg with some cheese. The cheese took me half an hour to eat. I scrambled 3 eggs but I got in about 4 bites of eggs before I was full but I tolerated both with no problems!! Guess I’ll have to cut down my quantities! I’m so excited, and shocked at how little it takes to be full!

Oh yes, way to large a portion to begin. It used to take me three days to eat two scrambled eggs. All plans are different but mine was 1/4 to 1/3 cup of food to begin. It can be shock at first to realise & accept that a couple of spoonfuls is more than enough. Plus how long it can take to eat such small quantities. Go slowly & don’t push yourself to eat more than your still healing digestive system can manage. You’ll work it all out.

Just remember to eat slowly and chew until the food is virtually liquid. Put down your fork for a minute or so between bites to allow everything to get through to the stomach. If you eat too quickly or take too big of a portion it will feel like you swallowed a golf ball and hurt in middle of the chest.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
