Recommended Posts

Well it has been 5-6 days wince my surgery!! I had to stay two nights in the hospital then went home in immense pain. Up until today I have not been able to get no real anything down. the most I got was 10 ounces of plain Water yesterday. I can not take these lovely bariatric chewable vitamins, they made me sick immediately. I feel like a baby in that at 7pm every night I seem to get "colicky"!! I am 52 but am blessed to have a husband that does not mind burping me!!! :) This morning I am feeling stronger, I have talked with my NUT and gone over everything. I have taken two very long walks managed to get down 12oz. of water an some Protein Shake. I feel like I can see a light at the end of this tunnel. I am sure that I will have many more speed bumps but today I am strong!!!! Have a blessed day Everyone!!

Sorry to hear of your bumpy start, but I'm happy to hear things are starting to turn around. It should continue to get easier as you heal & move through the different phases of the food plan. Perhaps the sugar free icepops may go down easier or a warm broth. It is a lot of trying to see what your new stomach likes. For me, I get on little "kicks" of things I like for a bit, and then want nothing to do with them, but I think it is from being so limited at earlier stages. (I haven't wanted Soups or tuna for weeks!🤣)

Good luck recovering & healing from your surgery. Wishing you the best on your weight loss path.

Good on you for taking long walks! That will help with recovery in general and especially constipation. I was still in a good deal of pain when moving at 5-6 days post op. Try taking small sips all day long (I just kept a bottle of Water or flavored water or Protein Shake in my hand at all times). I couldn't stomach the chewable vitamins either - at two weeks I just switched to the capsules, even though I was told to take the chewables for the first month. I realized it was either the capsules or nothing for me.

I have never had a baby so not sure about colic but I find burping very helpful still at 3 weeks out.

Keep trying to get your liquids and Protein in - focus on the liquids first, is what I've been told.

Thanks! For some reason all flavors are making me nauseous. I spent months finding all my favs in Water an Protein only now to find I can’t take any of them! Now I’m watering down the Protein Drink with fat free milk so for today this works. 😀

I also like putting the Protein Drinks in Decaf coffee - I mix half a chocolate fairlife drink with about 10 ounces of decaf coffee to make 16 ounces of Fluid and 15 g of Protein for my morning's drink

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      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 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      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.
