I am 3 days post op an miserable. I can’t get down the liquids I am supposed to get down. I’m in immense pain but learning to manage it. I can’t stand any of the Protein Drinks or Water flavors I liked before surgery. I am reading everything I can’t to find tips to help me get past this point. Oh an the Vitamins I’m supposed to take the rest of my life have made me puke everyday!!! Any tips? Any ideals welcomed?

@DJN3 Days is very early. I felt pretty terrible at 3 days too! I'm 2.5 weeks out now and I feel a lot better. The first few days I only got about 30 oz of Water in, and that was just by keeping a bottle of water in my hand whenever I was upright.

Have you tried Fairlife Nutrition Plan? They are the best tasting in my opinion. They are available in bulk at costco. (There are a lot of Fairlife drinks but you have to be careful because some have lots of sugar!)

The chewable vitamins were impossible for me. I ended up buying the capsules, even though I was supposed to take chewables for the first month. I could sort of tolerate the chewables if I took them with food, but even then, I was likely to gag and I felt sick for an hour or so. I tried two different brands of chewables. I haven't had any problems with the capsules (I'm using ProCare Health one a day with 45 mg iron).

Good luck!

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
