StratusPhr, what surgery are you having? Maybe I missed an earlier post, sorry. Are you having a conversion from gastric sleeve or lapband?

Revision from sleeve to RNY. Have you had a second surgery or are you scheduled? Good luck!

Hello. I am one day post ByPass. 24 hours ago at this time I was taking deep breaths from a mask and waking up 4 hours later in PACU. I went to my room an hour after getting to PACU and started walking within the hour. I had little 1oz glasses of Water on a table next to my bed and started sipping. I didn’t drink enough last night but I did OK. Around 7PM all the Fluid I had gotten IV decided to start coming out. For the next ten hours I was up to the bathroom every 30 minutes. No real sleep last night.

I got a temp of 100.5 around 10PM. I got IV Tylenol. It seemed to go away this morning but it is a little concerning. I decided to avoid pain meds so I am sore but it is tolerable. I feel incredibly bloated and look forward to getting the gas out. No other real symptoms at this point. The residents said I will probably go home today but the surgeon hasn’t come yet. I feel like it is going well.

How are you doing now?

I had a heart issue after my surgery so I am just on my way home from the hospital now after a week. I felt pretty good after 2 days but had to stay in the hospital until they found a drug that would work for me. Water is going down easily and I’m on full liquids. I don’t think I lost anything in the hospital with the IVs.

Congratulations to everyone who has been scheduled! I'm hoping it goes well! I had my first week post op appointment today, I've to go back in three weeks for the switch to the soft food diet. I was cleared to start taking Multivitamins and also to start the pureed diet come the weekend. I think the first thing I want to try is a scrambled egg mixed with cheese.

Good luck to everyone having their operations, I'm now one week out and apart from my stomach muscles still aching I'm feeling so much better. It's definitely worth it so far.

Congrats! I’m one week post op and I am counting down the days until I can move on to purées 😂! I’ve seen a lot of people talking about the Eggface Ricotta Bake as a good purée dinner. I would love to hear other ideas as well!

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
